Chandler cant stretch the floor Amare and Melo games are to similar making it easier to guard us.

    Im watching the Denver vs Laker game last night and im just like damn the way Gasol and Bynum are able to find each other is amazing two Bonafide 7 footers passing the ball fluently to each other taking advantage of their size down low. Then i look back at the Knicks and think to myself.... why cant Chandler and Amare work like that... why cant Amare find a way to lob it to chandler or just toss it up there to wear chandler is able to grab control of the ball for a dunk or layup, i know Chandler is not a offensive threat like Bynum but if he has the ball in a decent position he is going up for the dunk which probably leads to a foul and FT.

    Idk man, i think a stretch 4 would benefit this team better... like "marcus morris" "channing frye" "Barganani" 'illyasova" players that can stretch the floor open as far as to the 3 point line to the point where if you double you pay the price... even like a post up PF "Al jefferson" or "scola" could even fit.
    I agree. Melo and amare rarely play a two man game. One of the reasons I believe is simple... Everyone in the league knows what Amare needs to be effective! If you gameplan for Amare, you basically take away the pick and roll, that's it! This is what happens when at 6'11" you don't have a post game. He's either shooting jumpers or trying to get a PnR from anyone who has the ball. That's not gonna cut it.

    Another issue is that when Melo has the ball, too many people are just watching instead of making cuts. Despite whan many think, Melo will pass the ball if someone is open and unguarded.

    He thinks he will be back for game 4.

    He told the media that he didn't know there was a fire extinguiser on the wall...he just wanted to make some noise and swung his hand at the wall as he walked into the room.... catching the glass casing instead. Apparently, he didn't even know he was cut until Jorts told him he was bleeding. Talk about dumb luck.

    I agree that they don't play well together but I don't agree on your assessment of Amare. Up until this season he's had a good post up game. When he gets in the paint he usually scores. The fact that he can occasionally hit an outside shot is a bonus.

    Where he is limited is in creating his own shot. He needs a really good point guard to be most effective. Melo on the other hand can't do it all and the team has to be ready to step up offensively. There seem to be some trust issues on his end.

    so if Renaissance Man plays tomorrw then its obvious to me he is trying to pull a Willis Reed so he can have his name in the history books are the first Knick trying to come back from a threatening injury to help the team in the newly renovated Garden.
