    Default Official Dump Antoni and Melo Anthony Thread

    Mike Antoni is a loser. He's 20 games under .500 since getting here.

    By the end of this season, he'll be in one of these:

    NNNNNNOOOOOO!!!!!!!




    I like Carmelo Anthony's ability to score in bunches. I don't like his selfishness.

    If Anthony can learn how to pass the ball and take less shots, then I'd keep him. This is unlikely, though, so I'd rather trade him while his value is still high.



    Melo for Dwight Howard is what I'm thinking. Then the Knicks could have a Zach Randolph/Marc Gasol like frontcourt.

    Howard can rebound and score in the paint. Stoudemire can shoot from the baseline and free-throw line, as well as drive to the basket for easy layups. I don't know if STAT can dunk at will anymore, since he's 20 lbs heavier. We'll just have to wait and see.

    What are your thoughts?

    Melo is far from the problem. This team would have 0 wins without Melo with the way Stat is playing/degressing.

    Anthony is shooting 40% from the field. He needs to pass the ball more and attempt at least 5 fewer shots per game.

    I think Antoni's poor coaching and Anthony's inability to get his teammates involved has contributed to Stoudemire's subpar play.

    I think it's part Melo, but more the system. Also, I think he regressed because he's a year older/slower and he put on 20 lbs in muscle which slowed his first step which is also hurting his game.

    I remember when I used to work out a bunch, it tore my shot up...bad. All the players need to be accountable for their play. BUT Melo & Stat need to take over this team and be leaders as they're not getting ANY leadership from their coach.

    lol funny thread...

    in my opinion its not really fair to blame Carmelo, hes being asked to:

    1) Be the #1 offensive Option

    2) Be the point guard

    3) Be the best rebounder

    4) Play defense

    5) Lead a team full of scrubs

    6) Take the blame from the fans and media

    I think hes done the best he can do, Melo's played with alotta heart. He leads the team in assists per game, he has looked to get his teammates involved.

    With the situation Melo is in and the teammates that he has, its impossible for him to deliver and look good while doing so. The only player in the league that might be able to deliver and reach these high demands is Lebron James, even he would only make it 3 quarters of the way.

    So who should be put in a hefty bag?

    Amarknee Stoudemire has become such a horrible basketball player, he looks like hes an overgrown high school kid trying to fit in with NBA players. Hes officially the most overrated power forward to ever play the game. Chris Bosh and David Lee are both better players then him, Garnetts what...38 years old? Hes still better then Amare. I think Harrelson was on the verge of taking Amare's starting job from him until he got hurt last night.

    Lets just put it this way, if i had a license to kill my bullet would go straight between STats eyes, leaving a whole on the bridge of his nose thats bigger from the abrasions left by his goggles. He barely even has a d*ck

    3. This is Tyson's and Amare's work...

    4. Yeah, helluva work, play defense...

    5. He's the main reason we're a team full of scrubs...

    6. Yesterday was the first time this season he admitted he takes the blame for a loss, normally Amare plays this spot.

    MDA said he's cool with shooting poor percentages, right after a loss, so....when isn't he cool with it then?

    Yea, Melo finally admitted he's taking bad shots, but is he the only one?



    Is MDA's "not looking at stats in that manor" Melo's fault as well?

    2 for 12 = 16%

    But that's fine according to MDA. Not because I'm an angry fan ranting about him....but because he said it. After a loss. His words.

    STAT is shooting 41% this season.
    Melo is shooting 40% this season.

    Did you forget Lamelo pushed us to trade for him? He made it clear that he's not willing to risk the free agency and if the Knicks didn't reach an agreement with Denver he'd resign with the Nets? Of course it was Dolan who made the call, but Lamelo wanted his $$$ over a solid team... Or we got him sending away 3/4 of our roster or he'd be a Net.

    What is bothersome is that MD was asked in the postgame interview why Bill Walker did not played more in the second half and he reply was that Walker played 3-4 min in the second half and did not played good and his body language look like is tired so that s the reason he had him benched.

    This guy doesnt even know what is talking about. I dont think he even whatches the game but stay on the bench hoping that Melo is going to turn the game around.

    Bill Walker played only 2 minutes in the second half did not score and had a turnover ( I think that why he was benched) but up until that point he was red hot going 5/6 fg with for 15 points in 11 minutes. And how can he say he was tired when Walker only played 11 minutes.
