I'm just going to quote someone else on the internet - in another knicks forum.
This team has two factions of players according to the articles(and it seems that way on court). One wants to play a certain way and the other wants to play a different way. It just ends up being a weird mix with no cohesion.
The articles are embellishing and dramatizing to get hits though. There are probably alot of undercurrents of emotions similar to what was described, but I doubt its to the level that the writers are talking about.
You guys have to remember that the writers do have to embellish and dramatize. Hits to their pages = affects advertising dollars.
One thing is for sure there is at least 2 factions.
Melo on one side or his own side.
The guys that have bought-in (see Linsanity run)
