Warriors' owner wants deal for superstar

08:11 AM ET 01.21 | A recent interview revealed Joe Lacob to be a man of action. The theme: The Warriors are now an active, antsy franchise, just dying to make the move that would change everything and not afraid to contemplate dealing away their best players. "I'm certainly biased toward doing something -- strongly," Lacob said Thursday. ... "What I would really love to do is to pull off the deal to get a superstar. There's one or two of them out there." Denver's Carmelo Anthony would be the main one, and Lacob admits Anthony is probably headed elsewhere. But just three months after Lacob took over the reins with co-owner Peter Guber, the most striking points of this 35-minute interview were Lacob's willingness to publicly circle who and what he wants, and offer specific criticisms of his own players and coach.

I'm more curious of the other superstar that's out there as Melo is Knicks property at this point.

Unfortunately, there isn't a player available that could make a real difference. What this team needs is a low post presence, and they haven't had one since Wilt Chamberlain.

It won't matter, Bro.

If there's another great player out there that's available of course I want to know so I can try to figure show the only that's good for him is Knicks.

monte ellis and 2 1st round picks and 2 second round picks for carmelo would be a good trade or ellis to the celtics for nate robison, glen davis and 3 future first round picks and 3 second rounders

yea the russian seems like he is going to be the nba version of danny boy snyder from the way he is publicly pointing the finger at billy king for not making a stupid move reminds me of snyder firing charlie casserly for refusing to sign off on the 100 million dollar team in 99 smh..

Billy's a moron. He shouldn't have started the talks in the first place. Why go after a player that's made up his mind about where he wants to go. These players aren't toddlers. When they make up their mind its a wrap. If Bosh, Lebron and Wade were able to hold on to their dream for years why should we expect Melo to change his mind.

In the end everything works out. When Larry called coaching his dream job and had it... how did it work out for him. You can say the same about Marbury. If Melo wants NY let him have it...

With a power forward without the power and defenseless like a Mike D'Antoni team what do you expect.

That's not true. The Lakers will compensate them to take Walton. Would two court-side seats at Staples for the NBA Finals suffice?
