His numbers dropped because of Chandler not because of Melo.........
I hope you don't want to trade Chandler too.......
Super stars do not grow on trees, you like him or not, Melo is a super star, if you can trade him for Another BETTER superstar, then why not, but for Danny???!! come on......
moreover, why we always want to alter the players and do changes, then after a while you find everybody nagging about Dolan changing things and affecting chimistry??!!!!
It is not how many points Chandler is taking from Amare, it is the Space occupied by Chandler in the Paint, in addition to Amare not being able to hit a shot from outside.
Don't get me wrong, i like Amare, but the debate here is on Melo and shall we trade him or not.
i say we have a superstar, and a very good coach now, lets build chimistry and start winning, the team was playing perfect basketball before the playoff, even with Amre still not in place......
in the playoffs we were hit with the Heat, and though i hate to admit it, but Lebron is the best in the league now..... they defeated everybody, so we were not an exception
if we played any other team, without all the injuries we would reach the finals or at least the conference finals, that time nobody will say Melo is bad or we should trade Melo...........
Why is this now a Melo debate thread
This thread should been closed yesterday
1A and 1B kinda like how LeBron needed Wade and Bosh to win a ring but we're bitching about Melo who had no help the past 2 years in the playoffs
Melo is extremely focused this summer, he's primed and ready to perform but we're not worried about next year we're concerned about the cluster**** bull**** our team has been through the past 2 years and now that we're finding some stability we wanna start over
Woodson is turning Melo into a top 5 player overall he's defended harder with Woodson, rebounded better, found his teammates and scored at an efficient rate.
When the rest of the team gets healthy and falls in line we'll be fine. Get rid of the dead weight and get the correct pieces around our stars(STAT and Melo) and lets go to war.
Oh yea and Landry fields gets 3 years at 20 mil... Are u tucking kidding me? He's mediocre when playing his best basketball and hot garbage a lot of the other times... Toronto are idiots.. I heard they grabbed fields to block our sign and trade for Nash and he's going to LA anyway... Their GM should b fired!
1st you say Donnie Walsh got out of town because of the Melo trade then wanna trade him to the team Walsh now works for
You obviously don't know **** about basketball because you cant spell Granger's name right
The college reference is that he was 18 years old and dominated elite college competition much like the current #1 overall pick
we were never getting Nash or Ray Allen
Camby is old and lacks the mobility we need to challenge Miami
Granger shot 41% averaged 18pts and 5rebs and got hurt tryna bully LeBron and subsequently LeBron bust his ass
That team you listed will only exist in 2K this is not 2K
We claim its a team game then blame Melo and bring his playoff record, TEAMS WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS AND PLAYOFF SERIES
We say he shoots too much yet he's never lead the league in FGA and shoots as much almost every other #1 option
EVERYONE AROUND HERE SAYING MELO WONT LEAD US TO A CHAMPIONSHIP ARE ONLY SAYING THIS BECAUSE THE ODDS ARE NOT IN HIS FAVOR AND IF IT DOESNT HAPPEN YOU WANNA SAY I TOLE YOU SO AS IF THE PRE-MELO TEAM WAS GOING TO WIN A TITLE.
Then the reason people want the team back say
Felton was an All-Star- wrong
STAT was an MVP candidate- wrong
Landry was the rookie of the yeas, averaging 11 and 7- wrong
Gallinari was turning into a complete player- wrong
Chandler was going to be the 6th Man of the year- wrong
Mozgov was just realizing his potential- wrong
I will admit the beginning of Melo's era has been rocky and under whelming but we got a lot of potential and I know we'll go far, hopefully all the way to a title
Did anyone think Isiah would get a ring with Magic, Bird and Jordan ruling the league NO but he beat them all. Hakeem got his when MJ retired but still no one thought he had a shot. Barkley got to the Finals, Malone and Stockton almost beat MJ, its not impossible but it can happen because Melo was a couple inbound passes away from going to the Finals and likely destroying the Magic.
Lets get behind OUR TEAM and believe in OUR TEAM, not bash the best player and cheer for the 12th man on the bench to get more PT because we love underdogs.
I really think we're the only fan base who is never happy with anything other than guys on cheap contracts, undrafted players or 2nd round picks going off and saying we got a steal. We got our stars, we got our future and we're out the gutter.
From Woodson to Carmelo to Jeremy to Stoudemire to Jerome lets believe in our team and stop with the bashing
constructive criticism is always welcome though- I love debating
Red.... your not accurate.
Here's an acurate fact....the addition of Melo did not improve the Knicks team in any way, the Knicks were a first round playoff team before the Melo-trade, and the Knicks are 1-8 in the playoffs with Melo, which made the Knicks a first round playoff team the past 2 seasons.
Landry Fields was a 2nd round steal in the 2010 draft....ranking 3rd in ROY....averaging a C+ grade as a starter for 2 seasons....and for some uncanny reason 2nd season Landry Fields would rather change teams to be on a non-playoff Raptors team, rather than a first round playoff team....do u think our Knicks will be a contender next season with Tyson, Stat, Melo, and Lin?
Landry Fields, and his agent dont think so.
In my mind
4) Clyde as an announcer
5) A Signed Melo Jersey
Fields going to Toronto was a monetary decision and he would of been dumb not to take it.
Let Fields walk.
I don't even have to think about it. It's a no brainer.
Nice guy, but that doesn't justify this contract.
And btw: Brooklyn will finish the season higher than the Knicks.
Deron, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries is already a much better starting 5 than the Knicks have and their bench has a few good players too like Marshon Brooks, Farmar etc.
