After all the flying rumors, the Knicks did no trades at all? Unbelievable.
Are Tyson Chandler’s and Amar’e Stoudemire’s conctracts just too heavy to give the Knicks much heft in the trading game?
And of course at the last minute Iman Schupert’s knee injury torpedoed any last minute chance of him being part of a deal. So the status quo prevails for the Knicks and their chances of making the playoffs are lineball at best. Ah Knicks we love you but can Carmelo win on his own?
Things look better for the Nets. Joe Johnson, Andre Blatche and Deron williams all did their bit to help the Nets win over the Jazz.
And of course they did pick up a trade from the Kings, Marcus thornton in exchange for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans.
And even though that left the Nets shorthanded they won their game and have a good chance of making the playoffs if they can keep winning during their road trip. We love you too Nets and you look, right now, like New York’s best chance for the playoffs.
