No one said that we lost the trade.

Yea, I know. But you can't consider it a steal if both teams are better of from the trade... atleast that's what I thought a steal meant.
Never heard stealing inrl where the 'stolen' is better off.

You have a car you hate, I steal it, you get insurance, you win and I get a steal.

I had a feeling something like this would come up lmao.
But I guess the one who 'stole' isn't better off, since... I dunno there got to be a reason why the person hates the car... and the stealer might just hate it himself. Looked like a steal, but um, ends up being a steal for the other guy?

Maybe it was a Euro car with manual transmission and the guy picked it because many of his neighbors had Euro cars. But driving it sucked, he hates manual transmission. And the thief loves it. All the thief wants to do is chuck that transmission all day long.

Melo called it a steal, I just quoted the 'steal' from the article.
It might be a steal for NY because they barely gave up anything for a player that might be serviceable for them.

Alright, alright. I just thought the metaphor steal also involved 'stealing' from the other team, as in they lost, left with nothing... Like the Carter trade was a steal for NJ or something, or Pau trade for Kwame. But maybe I'm wrong.

Cool

Whatever, Bargnani is off our hands and for that we win. And I don't give a flying fuck what he does in New York. His time was up here........in 2010. Time to move the fuck on. And the same goes for Jose Calderon, it's time for a new era.

I also hope they change our home court, it's awful.
