Steps to acquire Carmelo : A round table discussion: Contest entry
So we're not ready to tank just yet, this thread is to discuss what you guys believe that we can do to be the underdogs and acquire Carmelo.

10. NBA TV Canada will be here-forth renamed Carmelo TV.

9. Joey Dorsey must grow cornrows to look more like Nene.

8. Reggie Evans must breast feed Carmelo's children while Brian Colangelo must give back massages during games. The testosterone given from Reggie will help accelerate the growth of Carmelo's children so we can recruit them in two years.

7. Get Linas Kleiza to sign a contract agreeing that as soon as he turns the ball over more than three times, he must pass the ball for the remainder of the game to Carmelo and warm his towels from the bench during time-outs.

6. Buy the New Orleans Hornets to acquire an All-Star caliber line-up with a decent bench.

5. Change the name of the Raptors to the Carmelos.

4.Sign David Aldridge to a veterans minimum to "work game" on Carmelo. Get that Hollywood flare.

3. Assassinate Mikhail Prokhorov.

2. Sell The franchise to Rogers and hook Carmelo up with a sick blackberry, and free cable for a year.

1. Kidnap Jay Z, and get Drake to sit front row beside Justin Bieber at every home game.

How would you guys get Melo?

When the Blue Jays won the world series in 92 and 93, it did wonders for their street "cred". This is why most americans still have respect for the blue jays. If you look at their history, when they chose to spend money they picked up free agents like Clemons, Canseco, etc. To this day, if the blue jays get tied to big name players like Manny Ramierez.

So the first way to get Melo, would be to win a title.

Now the blue jays built their 92 and 93 winning teams via smart trades and having a good stadium. Players liked the thought of playing in a revolutionary stadium during the playoffs that provided protection from the weather. This is why Jack Morris left detroit.

So if we make Toronto a "cool" place to play, players will come. As I said before, we need a better marketing campaign for league wide appeal.

simplycrazy 12-24-2010 02:58 PM

Shouldn't we have someone look more like amare stoudamire or CP3.

Step 1 - Give this team some direction.
Step 2- Win.
and maybe in 7 years we'll be able to sign him to the veteran's minimum.

Gurk 12-24-2010 06:08 PM

Fuck Melo, bargs and Jose are gonna take us to the championship

Bill Haverchuck 12-24-2010 06:29 PM

I thought I knew who submitted this. Now I'm not so certain.

Bill Haverchuck 12-24-2010 06:34 PM

Okay, now I know.

lankganglia 12-24-2010 10:46 PM

If we put the acc on top of the cn tower melo would come for sure. "The world's tallest basketball court"

Gurk 12-25-2010 12:36 PM

What if we move to New York then he'll join us and then we move back to Toronto. Only way :mischief:

numbah eleven 12-25-2010 04:25 PM

Number 7 lol. Imagine how livid Kleiza would be, running away from Denver and that one just to end up in the same team again. Being a Kleiza lover a mere idea of them playing in the same team makes me sick. But come on, Melo's never coming to play for Toronto :)
