And as I've stated many times, I don't think Melo is a good complimentary player to Amare. Which is really the most important. As I've also said several times, it's not just about getting max contract players or not, it's about matching talents + keeping depth.
If you can get multiple max contract level players that compliment each other and also surround them with solid talent and a bench, then great. But I don't believe this is what the Knicks are doing. It seems we just got a "superstar" at all costs for the sake of just getting a superstar. There were much better options than Melo, in my opinion.
