Pressure on Melo?
With all the Linsanity hype during Melo's absence the knicks are 8-1. With melo they were below .500. When he returns do you believe that he will try to do to much or try to adjust to the system that is adding W's to the column?
Because of the way the Nuggets balled AFTER he was traded and because of the Knicks current Linning streak without him, I think it is safe to say that while the pressure may not be squarely on his shoulders he certainly has a lot to prove about playing winning ball. Time will tell, but I think the current rotation will adapt to Carmelo and that he will help Lin by providing another shot creator on the court. If he can keep the ball moving, they should be fine

If anything it'll be much easier, he'll see less double teams, more open looks and can focus on rebounding and defending more, mainly a big scorer down the stretch of close games I see him going 24-24 and 8-10 rebounds he should shoot around 50% if he's fully healthy which he should be
With that 2009 second-round pick the Spurs drafted DeJuan Blair, who has been a solid pick up for them. The Suns eventually traded Dragic to Houston in a multiplayer deal that brought back Aaron Brooks, but re-signed him this summer to replace his former mentor, Steve Nash.
Omer Asik – Pick originally owned by the New York Knicks
In 2007 the Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers completed a monster deal that featured Zach Randolph going to the Big Apple with Steve Francis, who was almost immediately bought out, going to Portland. The swap also included a 2009 second-round pick of the Knicks going to Portland as well.
The Timberwolves traded him to Denver for Luke Babbitt, who they proceeded to pair with Ryan Gomes for Martell Webster. Webster struggled in Minnesota and is now a Washington Wizard. Meanwhile, Lawson is the starting point guard for the Nuggets and currently negotiating a sizable long-term extension.
Austin Rivers – Pick originally owned by the Minnesota Timberwolves
Although he had no idea at the time, at 13 years old a trade between the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves went down that would become a factor for Rivers later in life. The Timberwolves traded Sam Cassell and a 2006 first-round pick with protections only through 2011 to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for Marko Jaric and Lionel Chambers. The protections came into play all the way until 2012, when it became unprotected.
Nerlens is no Anthony Davis, but if you are looking for a fair comparison to Noel, it might be Lakers center Dwight Howard. Equally as raw offensively coming into the process, Noel is a big, long, athletic player who is an instinctual shot blocker. He desperately needs quality coaching and a solid weight program, both of which he should get at Kentucky.
Much Like Washington guard Brad Beal, Shabazz is going to be a fairly safe pick. He may not have franchise star potential, but he could be very good if paired with the right star.
Every year there is an international name to know and this year its Rudy Gobert. He may not end up at the top of the draft when its all said and done, but when you look at his skill set and body – there is intrigue for sure.
Throughout this process with Howard and Orlando, I have asked the question “why is a player somehow indentured to the team that drafts him?”
In a deal during the 2010 offseason, the Bucks paired up Darnell Jackson with a second-round pick for Jon Brockman. Brockman averaged just over one point and two rebounds a game during his time with Milwaukee, while Thomas went on to prove just about the entire league wrong during his stellar rookie campaign.
This offseason, Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld discussed the possibility of Evans joining Washington’s front office, but the veteran wasn’t ready to retire and move into the next chapter of his life. The Wizards weren’t interested in bringing back Evans as a player so the two sides parted ways.43r534
“In the meantime, I have enjoyed working more closely with Mr. Hunter and the rest of the staff to improve our union and help it to work towards becoming the strongest union in sports,” Evans said. “We are updating our agent regulations, our by-laws and our player programs. We are planning to cut into the deficit that is plaguing our players by way of bankruptcy, divorce, drugs and lack of transitional skills upon leaving game. This is very exciting, especially as the business review winds down and all of the negative energy associated with it is cast aside.”hdgs
“Mr. Hunter has been a tremendous help to me personally as a mentor while being on the executive committee,” Evans said. “More importantly our players should be thankful for him and our union for the job they have done throughout his tenure, especially with limited resources as it compared to the NBA.”ngfdhd
