Look - here's the facts: Carmelo is supposed to be the leader and best player on this team. It is, right now, his squad. If the team loses he takes the blame. That's the way it always has been in this league (blaming the best player for failures of a team), and it'll always be that way.
Blame him when we're at full strength and have a great chance of winning a series. Other than that, all the abuse is just dumb and reactionary.
If everyone is doing their part except Melo then I understand the blame but the guy is doing all he can. WE NEED HIM TO TAKE SHOTS AND SCORE BECAUSE THE HEAT HAVE NO PROBLEM GUARDING ANYONE ELSE.
And I'm not exactly trying to bash melo. I feel sort of bad for the guy but on the other hand, he's the one collecting a huge paycheck, making a huge show of coming to ny and not winning the games to prove it. (this could also be said for stat but since this team goes melo's way, I'm cutting him some slacK)
Edit: No, I get what you're saying. This team is depleted and didn't have a great chance to win against miami. But I have more of a problem with melo's leadership than anything. If this was kobe bryant I would be shutting up (and this isn't because I'm a kobe or lakers fan-dislike both actually)
Oh and I really just blame DOLAN for being an absolute retard.

Not surprise an overpaid superstar will manipulate to get his way. It's so obvious it's funny. Melo probably read the art of war during his recovery or the 48 laws of power.
9 years not even close to a ring? get the **** out of here.
Yeah It's Melos fault we got swept by the Nets in 04.
Fields is not even a starter these days if shump is around, plus whose idea is this that he also started to shoot 3s which he is not good at?
They are just average rosters, I dont think it is fair to blame them. They just follow coach's plan.
Who to blame? It is obvious.
