I'm not sure what you can't take seriously on that list.
I mean, if I am walking next to a stove and it is hot, I will feel this heat and I will avoid touching it. I won't stand there and request an academic report on the stove to determine if it is dangerous or not.
Facts, how can anyone give facts on Melo quitting on coach? Obviously this is impossible. At the same time, how can anyone that payed attention to Melo's play before and after the coaching change say that he didn't quit on MDA?
The burden isn't on the Melo critics to provide facts, it's on the supporters to provide some type of reasonable proof that he is NOT everything we say he is (selfish, a bum, petulant).
You know, I can tell myself I'm wealthy, tall and smell good all day but when I step into the world this delusion falls apart in the face of cold, hard reality. In the same way, this wishful thinking about Melo will fall apart in the face of the cold, hard reality of the NBA Playoffs.
Lets start off with the opinion of Charles Oakley...
"Barkley for his size was a good player, but he's a coward though," Oakley said. "He was a good player for his size but, he wasn't a leader and wasn't a role model. Now he talks so bad about younger guys, I don't respect that from him...He's a fraud, he can criticize all the younger kids and if he got something to say, call them and talk to them before you just blast them. He's wants to be funny, that whole TNT thing and all that, they're like some clowns on that show."
Now on to Scottie Pippen
Even MJ knew Barkley didnt have a winners heart. All Barkley ever do is start sh*t with Lebron, Wade, Artest, and other basketball players...hes a fat insecure loser that runs his fat mouth thinking trash talking will bring him the respect that he never got from his teammates"I wouldn't give Charles Barkley an apology at gunpoint," Pippen said, never raising his voice. "He can never expect an apology from me. ... If anything, he owes me an apology for coming to play with his fat butt."
"He's a very selfish guy," Pippen said of Barkley. "He doesn't show the desire to want to win. That's my reason for wanting to get away from playing with him anymore because he just doesn't show the dedication.
"I probably should've listened to Michael (Jordan) a year ago when he said that Charles will never win a championship because he doesn't show any dedication." Pippen wasn't finished.
"I was very shocked to see what type of player he was by spending half a season with him," he said of Barkley. "I'm a guy that's dedicated to winning, and I put out a lot of effort on the court. I expect that from my teammates, especially from a guy of his caliber.
"You know he's not willing to go the distance. There's no reason for me to put my last three or four years at risk of never winning.
"Charles is definitely one of the guys that needs to show more leadership for this ballclub to be successful, and he don't show that to me. ... He feels that if he gets 10 rebounds and double-figure points, he's done a good job. But that's not what the game's about. It's about defending, being professional and coming to work every day."
Carmelo Anthony doesn’t think Michelle Obama is a Knicks fan, but the First Lady apparently likes Melo’s style.
After a photo of the pair hugging appeared on the front page of yesterday’s Post, Anthony revealed Michelle Obama whispered nice words of encouragement to him in the embrace.
“She told me to continue being happy and keep smiling,’’ said Anthony, who is known being carefree on the court. “She’s a Melo fan.
Anthony, who tweeted the photo yesterday, was in hot demand at the Team USA practice at the University of East London. Former Brazilian Olympic star Oscar Schmidt asked to take a picture with Anthony.
You can tell just by looking at that picture that she gets moist for Melo just from a hug.
She wouldnt even be able to expand her arms around the body of Charles Barktree and she would have to hold her nose if she got that close to him and smell his Taco Bell breath
u dont recall when Melo received ZERO playingtime on the USA Olympic Team do u? Do this USA Olympic Team need any scoring from Melo? Think CP3, Harden, Kobe, Durant, and Love before answering.
Everytime I watch the re-runs of the Knicks vs Heat playoff series, I see an open Novak & Fields everytime Melo has the ball in his hands.
I believe you on Fields being open because quite honestly, the Heat didn't even bother covering him.
I don't agree with Novak. It was said that as soon as Novak got into the game every Heat player kept calling his name and made a considerable amount of effort to keep him from getting open.

Your also right about both Fields and Novak
As far as Novak and Fields. Novak couldn't even move without someone stuck to him like a shadow so that's completely false. And i'd rather Melo shoot on 3 defenders from half court than let fields shoot a wide open shot. The guy is quite possibly the worst shooting perimeter player in the league
