I don't know why I am suddenly having to defend myself against two people in a thread where these opinions have been widely talked about already for 18 pages but here goes!

Where is Nash at? He's at 3 million or his current salary
Where is our 1st round pick at?
Where is Sacre at? (It's a small salary, but it counts)
Kobe and Pau signing both 1 year deals?
Again, quick brainstorming. It's 10 AM and I'm not at work, so obviously I'm not taking this as seriously as you are. I'm not sure why you're trying so hard to poke holes in this, but if you want I'll try harder.
1. Nash at 3 million- check.
2. 1st Round Pick- 1.1 million
3. Sacre- 915,000
4. Kobe and Gasol- Yup.
Salaries: Carmelo- 20
1st Round Pick- 1.1
Kobe- 20 million
Pau- 14.985 million
Total- 60 million

When is the last time, aside from the Miami cHeat, that a team pulled off a Love/Rondo/Melo/Kobe/Pau in 2 offseasons?
Probably 2008 when the Boston Celtics acquired Kevin Garnett AND Ray Allen to play with Paul Pierce.
Then maybe 2007 when we acquired Pau Gasol to play with Kobe, Bynum, and Odom.
You could throw in our two failed experiments of Howard/Nash in 2013 and of Malone/Payton in 2004.
Maybe throw in the less successful Joe Johnson/Deron Williams/Brook Lopez/Gerald Wallace in 2012.
There's plenty of precedent.
Doc Brown wrote:And why do the people that are opposed to having Melo not allowed to voice their opinion on getting him?
Who said you didn't? By my count there's more people over the last page and a half or so AGAINST Melo than for him. In fact it's been split pretty well throughout this and many other threads.
Doc Brown wrote:We have to accept the fact that we have to get Melo to get other star players?
I never made that claim at all.
Doc Brown wrote: No one is b****** about getting Melo, more like expressing the truth to his game.
I'm sorry if you took offense to that word (since you singled it out), it was just a turn of phrase. I honestly didn't mean anything negative by it, just the word that comes to mind. I should have probably said "complaining" since that's less inflammatory. I apologize.
