    Wade was never coming to NY. Not even in our wildest dreams.

    And no, my oppinion wouln't change just because it's the Knicks.

    Either every (big market) team gets the chance to create a superteam by removing the salary cap or no team should be allowed to.

    Miami will have a wide open field for the next 5 years.

    Nobody in the East is even close and in the West San Antonio are probably on their last run, the Lakers are in serious decline, Oklahoma won't be able to resign everybody (Westbrook, Durant, Harden, Ibaka) due to the cap and the Clippers are missing a few pieces and overpaied on DeAndre.

    It's pathetic to watch the best 3 shooter in the league and not getting plays designed for him!

    Go where a team will appreciate your talent, Novak!

    Nope. I won't blame him if it is true. Same for Lin. Thing is, this whole thing is not about gratitude or sticking out for the team. There is no such thing in this league anymore. The franchise and the fans will be the first ones to trade you off or waiver you if they don't think you serve their best interest anymore. Why should it be any different for the players? I support and respect them if they want glory or growth. It's not like they are Lebron, whom a franchise was built on anyway.

    I've always said I am a basketball fan first and foremost because if I am not a basketball fan first, I will not be able to appreciate the game and the team. And I agree, they should go where their talent will be appreciated and nurtured and used to the fullest. Their talent should not be wasted and hidden so that others can shine.

    Our offense is the problem.

    and LeBron doesn't hold the ball too long, you're 100% wrong. LeBron has high IQ and is always producing. This is a 6"8 265 lb PG/SG/SF guy who averages 27+ ppg and 7 + assist...get lost dude, Nash and LeBron would easily be the greatest passing duo and would get nothing but EASY shots for Miami being the elite passers they are, along with Wade who's a great passer also.

    BALL MOVEMENT at its best folks, something Melo kills.
    LeBron does have the ball the entire game even if he's producing it isn't my point on top of that Nash has never been a good off the ball player and LeBron isn't a good enough shooter to play off Nash........facts

    Melo is a scorer so I guess every scorer is a ball movement killer

    I want Melo on this team because he wants to be here, LeBron doesn't, Nash doesn't so **** them

    My last point is we can say Melo doesn't understand team ball but thats not proven, hence since Woodson has taken over he's become a better leader and all around player. All great players had a little selfishness its needed sometimes to be honest but if we don't have faith in our best player we will just be bitchin and moanin about everything and its gettin annoying, I've yet to see any positivity regarding Melo

    He's an ISO player

    We gave up too much

    Doesn't play defense

    How about

    He is the best scorer in the NBA

    Great rebounder

    Great passer

    Bought in to playin tough defense

    Clutch performer

    Only player to average 20+ points and make the playoffs every year in his career

    Melo has room to grow in New York and I know he will perform at a high level next year and lead us to a conference final

    I think Melo is a good player but saying he is the best scorer in the NBA is a bit too much. I think many are better at scoring. Another thing is, Melo is a veteran, a superstar. He's not some rookie that gets the benefit of patience from us waiting for him to 'grow and perform at a high level'. He's supposed to be already mature as a player, at his peak and perform at that level. No excuses. I don't know about others but having been recruited and paid as 'the face' of the Knicks, I expected more from him this season, not next year. Why were we supposed to wait for next year?

    I personally hope that Nash goes to the Heat or the Lakers. The Lakers have the bigs necessary to get a chip. Of course they are getting older, so it would be interesting to see how/where they get the athleticism they need.
