I honestly think that Deron going to the Nets just floored him... because I'm SURE that he'd have made a play for him if he thought it was possible.
Now I can't stand 'Melo.... but I can acknowledge that he IS a star and he's very, very good at putting the ball in the basket. N.Y. did give away some good, young talent but it's tough to judge the trade right now since Billups wasn't healthy and they haven't had a chance to shore up their bench yet. They still have Walker and Fields too. The only guy that I think they'll really miss in the long run in Mozgov.
It's still a bit too soon to write off Walsh just based on that ONE "bad deal" which may not even be that bad.
You might argue that BC did the same thing (only worse) when he gave out that contract to Hedo.
At least 'Melo is still in his prime and can play.
