    Is he actually going to be wearing #77 for the Knicks??

    ADD I've confirmed this ... Wow Andrea. Just Wow.
    Why is that significant? Was there a famous Knick that once wore #77 as well?

    Based on numerous sources on twitter. He's joining some elite company by doing so.
    I just checked BBR.. the only guys to ever wear #77 were:

    John Mahnken
    Gheorghe Muresan
    Sasha Pavlovic
    Vladimir Radmanovic
    Blackie Towery
    Jake Voskuhl

    Jake Voskuhl was the opposite of elite.

    I don't see the significance.

    Not at all. Just seems like the worst Number a player could pick, really. Haha

    I actually like it. Why do what everyone else does? Screw that, be yourself, chuck bricks, forget you're seven feet tall, and enjoy that $11M playing for some other team.

    That statement started out serious but then something happened...

    Ciao Andrea, may your pasta always be al dente paesano and your pizza crust chewy. Primo misses you already.

    Will there ever be a Thread like this ?

    Without arguing about whether AB is a good scorer, or an inefficient scorer, there is a certain irony to this trade, in that this is what BC had tried to imitate (to a degree), with the ill-fated Chandler trade. Andrea's "situation" in New York - somewhat mirrors the Raptors. Only the talent is a step up. Time will tell ... I guess.

    • Melo is what Gay could've been (or could be - Never say never). Bargs never really got a chance to mesh with Gay, and see what could've been.
    • Chandler is what JV could be - NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 - but with better "scoring" hands.
    • Felton has some similarities with Lowry. Short and both described on Hoopshype as "Conditioning is sometimes an issue with him". As well, inefficient shooters for both guys.
    • J.R. Smith [6th Man of the Year award] had similar numbers to Demar - albeit, DD is 5 years younger. DD has 4 year - 38 million. Smith is 4 years for 25 million (13 million less).
    • Stoudemire vs Amir. 29 games vs 81 games makes these 2 comparables, like apples & oranges. However, AJ is better Rebounder, not far off in fg% (-.023), better passer (+1.1 apg), better blocker (+.7), and a lot less money [2 years 13.5 million (7.0 mil - team option) vs Amar'e choking 55.1 million for 2 more years.

    .

    Reality is, this trade worked best for both teams, and for Andrea.

    1. AB gets a new home, an experienced Centre to off-set his help Defense, and a rightful place as NOT the Franchise player [BC's damned & determined f*#k-up].
    2. This Thread pretty much dies, to live on as a remnant of Raptor bi-polar history.
    3. New York gets it's 2nd / 3rd scoring option, and someone to spread the floor for Melo (and JR)
    4. An end to booing a player (to this degree) - which as Kyle said: " I love our fans to death , but booing one of our players isn't cool and it should NOT be done!! Hopefully next game it won't happen!! "
    5. Everyone is happy again .... until we start chewing on Rudy's ass.

    It could have died 39 minutes ago, if you had of quietly moved it without announcing. But, no! Had to soak up all the glory, didn't ya? You bastard! You're all bastards!
