The Smoke Has Settled
I know I haven't posted anything in a couple weeks but I've been busy. But it's been a little bit since the trade deadline; stars got shipped out, and there were a lot of buyouts. First, Melo is gonna' be happy in NY with Amare, and don't count Billups out, he's still one of the leagues best PG's and I think he has a couple years left in the tank. This trade definatley solidifies NY's playoff spot in the east for this year, but I don't know how far they get, they're still a piece or two away from being elite, not just in the east. Deron Williams in Jersey, I'm not feeling that, especially not for the homie D-Will. With the exception of Brooke Lopez; who I don't think compliments Williams all that well because he's not a pick and roll guy, and Anthony Morrow, who is a dead-eye shooter that D-Will's gonna continuosly get open shots for, there's no where near enough talent on that roster to compete, even with arguably the leagues best PG. Now, D-Will can stay in hopes of attracting some other stars, which is why Jersey traded for him anyway, plus they'll be in Brooklyn soon, and D-Will and Brooklyn is a pretty good marketing combination for other players in the league. But so is Melo and Amare in NY.
