Trade Carmelo he's fat, he doesn't pass the ball, he cant get our team out the first round, he doesn't play defense, he's cancer to our team and he doesn't possess the leadership skills of Lin.
Lin would never call a contract ridiculous, this just goes to show you how much of a joke Carmelo is, he's the one with the ridiculous contract.
Am i doing it right?
Stat And Melo!!!
After reading all these posts I may take a leave of absence from this forum till the season starts. I don't think any of you will be happy unles we have Team USA in NY.
This team has not been consistent for years. Look back on some of these games and see that when Melo iso it's more times then not when everyone is standing around waiting for him. The man had no damn choice. We now have 3 PGs to fix that problem. With these additions Melo will be the natural finisher he has always been.
Defense. We now have a coach who demands it from EVERYONE and we saw that after he took over Melo was a different machine. Play D or sit your ass down.
Now instead of asking can Melo and Amare coexist you shOuld be asking about Amare and Chandler since they both work closer. Melo can score from anywhere.
You want to bring up MDA... Do you really miss him?
1. They never really played together so it was like watching traing camp in a game.
2. By the time Melo got back Lin was everywhere and teams were starting to realize you gotta respect his game. It's not like this kid was superman. Give the other teams some credit.
You ask me even without Lin next year we are in a better position then we've been in in a long ass time. I loved watching Lin as well but I want the best for my team and if this kid is trying to get his big payday at the expense of my franchise that I was born into because of my father and brothers love of the team then have fun out west guarding Cp3, Nash, Parker and Westbrook.

2. He had no problem passing the ball. Who do you think created Novak's shots?
3. Why is it Carmelo's fault that we didn't get out of the first round? Did Jeremy Lin get us out of the first round? He was such a great leader from the bench at 85% with our depleted backcourt because he was protecting HIS OWN payday (Which most guys would probably do, but if Melo did you would crucify him)
4. Played good defense under Woodson
5. Lin's leadership? See point 3
Stat And Melo!!!
Lebron got his ring and all the attention has died off him (not completely but is has simmered down a bit), I think we will see even more hate coming Melo's way this upcoming season.
Melo is a very talented player, his hate has sky rocketed ever since being traded to New York.
Real Fans of Melo know what he is capable of and will continue to support him
See this garbage is why even though I have been a member since 2006, I don't post much. Since Starbury came to town, groupthink IQ dropped on KO.COM by 100 points. I am so serious right now. When I joined this board in 06', there where INTELLIGENT conversations going on all topics, not just basketball. That included politics, religion, and RACE. Ask RADY or any of the old-school posters. I remember one poster called David Stern:"the overseer sitting on the porch of the plantation sipping on a mint julep." No one was offended because we knew what was up. This is the NEW YORK KNICKS PEOPLE. You know, SPIKE LEE'S team. Mr "Do the Right Thing" himself. Bottom-line: Describing African-Americans using terms like "fat" and "lazy" is unacceptable. These are PROFESSIONAL ATHELETES people. They have more athleticism in thier little fingers than most of us mere mortals have in our entire bodies. It's no coincidence that the african-american is being described as "fat" and "lazy" even though he won an NCAA title and is a perennial all-star, while the asian as "hardworking" based on 25 games. If Lin worked so hard he would have been availible for the HEAT series. It's a double-standard working here on KO.COM, the basketball-bizarro world. I don't hear the national experts saying this stuff. I just read this GARBAGE here.
criticism don't equate to racial bias though,
as long as a star athlete making max money is not winning the ring ther will always be some "hate" especially from the demanding and sometimes passionate yet slightly ignorant fans.
even LeBron got so much undeserved hate because of not winning for a while, even Jordan,
it's not about race,
if leBron or Melo was white or asian, the situation would still be the same IMO
I guess when everyone Hates Dolan thats because he is oh yeah white....everyone calls him dumb and fat....o yeah hes white...
dude your reaching.....The hate or dislike has to do with guys getting paid millions and not giving it their all................Ask any 10 year old kids who plays basketball and he will tell I tried my best....
at times Melo does not...Oh yeah Melo said that!!!!
dont the play the race card...not here
This guy is a multiple all star that has started in all star games and is even a starter for team USA over Kevin Durant. He is a legit star whether some think he is over rated.
NOW...Melo has been known to say dumb things through the media...example would be calling Lin's contract ridiculous...he was most likely talking about Rockets management however as the star player you have to keep your mouth shut. SHUT! But he doesn't so people can judge him.
Melo also has a type of game that requires him to have to have the ball in his hands and do his moves and isolation plays while not being a point forward like Lebron so he is really on helping himself when he goes iso.
Now I believe if he had a good PG that can orchestrate, outside shooters, and a decent big man then sky is the limit.
It is really al about Amare and how Amare fits since Melo is simply better. Melo gets flack because people expect him to be Lebron and he just is not.
Melo is a type of Kevin Durant, he is a pure shooter and probably one of the best shooters in the NBA and most clutch.
Melo needs stability, vet players, a good PG, a good big man...the usual.
I believe people expect too much from him on defense and passing. Maybe because he shows glimpses of great passing and defense and it looks like Melo just feels like improving those aspects of his game when he FEELS like it. When he should be goodon defense and rebounding every game because the ability is there.
"The Knicks are back" - Amare
people hate melo for being a iso player
but remember when lin was on his roll? yes he was throwing assists out, but alot of the points he scored were on iso plays too.
the melo hate is out of control.
