Gallo, Chandler, and Felton are role players...that's it.

Knicks and Rangers fans both have this thing with overrating their players. Stars win championships. Dallas, SAS, and Detroit are the exceptions. Look throughout history and 95% of teams had at least two stars. We couldn't just wait for Gallo and Chandler to develop into the next big things, which I don't think they will anyways. You need stars like Melo to compete in the playoffs vs. guys like LeBron. A team of Amare, Felton, Gallo, Chandler, Mozgov was a 1st-2nd round exit for years to come, Amare is approaching 30 too, so we couldn't just wait. A team of Amare, Melo, Chandler, Fields, Davis, TD, Shumpert is not bad and a contender IMO.

What was your plan than if you didn't want Melo? Just wait for Gallo to become the next Dirk?
