I wouldn't take Melo's defense over Felton, Fields, Gallo, Chandler and Amare. The need for him is really illogical and Fields doesn't need to be an all star for us to win. Carmelo doesn't promise us a championship.

    From this moment on forward, Carmelo is the Big Dog reincarnated.

    Knicks fans really are the most fickle fans in professional sports. I hope you're not over the age of 13 bro.

    I hope Melo proves me DEAD wrong, I really do.

    I support Melo, thats my dirty secret.

    Its just hard because I really want him to co-exist with Amare and it seems hopeless.

    Do we keep Amare and Melo together?

    Trade for Steve Nash?

    I always wanted to see Nash in a Knicks jersey. I'm hoping he'll eventually coach as he's one of the smartest players I've seen. But with Lin and Davis (who will improve the more minutes he plays) I don't see a point in getting Nash. Anthony needs to stop sulking about his new role and just accept it. Even if it means getting 20 ppg. He's surrounded by talent at the moment and needs to adjust to that. If he's smart, he will and the Knicks will click. If not, then he will continue to contribute to the demise of our offensive game.

    Melo was **** today vs the mavs, even though im a big fan of his im not going to stick up for it and make an excuse for him, Melo just does not look like he's having fun out there, i think he is somewhat butt hurt he's not the "big thing in the big apple anymore" i dont know if anyone noticed but Melo has the same FG% as Bill walker lol.

    Melo needs to

    1- start playing more consistent

    2- Not worry about passing every single play, your the star on this team dont think you have to Pass every time. when you have the mismatch, you take advantage. Melo thrives off iso, ok continue to do it dont change your game to the point where you feel uncomfortable, just dont iso EVERY time you get the ball let the game come to you.

    We need to utilize Melo, the same way the Celtics Utilize Pierce IMO

    You know I have noticed the same thing about melo and even thought the same thing that he is mad cause he isn't the big dog anymore.He needs to be smart and realise he can still be the big dog on this team if you play team ball.I noticed him alot out there on the floor making faces and the way he acts when he passes the ball away when before he did'nt have too.If he is going to wine and moan like a baby and not give it 110% effort everynight then he needs traded now.Don't get me wrong I really like melo on this team but he is making it so much harder on himself WHEN he can easily turn his act around and play team ball while playing his butt off. I don't see that from melo right now and frankly im starting to wonder if we will ever see it again.

    I am hating on Melo to hopefully send an aura of energy to fuel him.

    And I thought it was bad on RealGM lol..

    Listen guys the reason why Melo is having such a bad game & has had bad games is because of 1. he's still playing through injuries, 2. the coach does NOT utilize him correctly, 3. the coach keeps him on the bench for lengthy periods of times.

    You can't expect a player who is a 25-30 ppg scorer to just make magic everytime he gets the ball even when at times it looks like he's being frozen out on possessions. When your main PG is giving the ball more to Landry Fields & Chandler when you have an elite scorer waiting to do something you have a problem. I've said it before & I'll say it again you either trade Melo or you get rid of the coach. Melo & Amar'e both can't work in this system because their skillsets fused with the coaching style/new system does not mesh well together.

    Whether any of you want to disregard this & say nahh Melo just sucks, it's up to you. But I'm telling you in this system where no plays are called, where Pringles doesn't know how to use Melo, the PG is still fairly new & has built a great chemistry with Chandler & Fields you're asking for trouble with your star player.

    It's nice to see others here are waking up to the fact that Melo sucks these days. And to think people were calling for me to be banned for stating the truth!

    He definitely seemed disinterested yesterday. The team doesn't really seem to have a leader at the moment (or is it that there are too many leaders?) Amar'e was "on" for the first time in a while last night, while Landry and Chandler were off. Lin was on at times, other times not so much.

    He's not really Glenn Robinson, but his poor shooting and high bodyfat % really annoy me.

    He has no excuses for not beeing ripped and as mobile and athletic as he was in 2004.

    He has all the tools and resources to play at around 8-9 % bodyfat in-season.

    Instead he looks like 18% bodyfat and not even half as athletic as he was in HS, at the Cuse or in his early years in Denver.

    No team is ever going to win in this league with one superstar - Jordan even realised this after losing multiple times to detroit - it had to be a team effort with players around him - admittedly pippen was a supsestar in his own right, but the bulls had great Bit players and contributors all around jordan

    If mello thinks he has to be top dog because of his ego, we aint going nowhere -

    sad thing is we have a great team , a great deep team - and as soon as mello realises this and puts individuality behind him , the better we will be as we aint going nowhere unless we play as a team and everyone plays a role and sacrifices a bit
