    Most of us join the knicks because we want to talk or read bball, you join because you are eternally stuck on Melos ballsack. your forum behavior reflects how you act in the real world too. The average ko member lives their life ****ing beautiful ladies and getting the perennial money while you sit there boiling in your resentment for someone who has far more money, recognition, and talent than you.

    it sucks to see another person live life with hatred but maybe when you get banned soon enough you will figure out how to be a better human being.

    Get rid of this guy mods...he is spamming because he says the same damn thing in every single post lol

    I was a Melo hater; but dare I say I'm slowly becoming a Melo supporter?

    Hard for me right now, always wanted him to play for Puerto Rico in FIBA, seeing him in the USA jersey burns me.

    Just imagine the tons of looks and point Melo would rack up on the PR team that's mostly a bunch of point guards and two goofy 7"2 guys. PR would finally be able to defeat Greece and become a top 4 FIBA team.

    Melo is basically unstoppable in FIBA play, always been. His style of play is perfect because the 3pt line is shorter and that where he is most deadly. 18-20, you can't beat him.

    Default Carmelo Anthony = Charles Barkley???

    After the 1992 Olympic Games Charles Barkley had his best season as a professional basketball player winning the 1993 NBA MVP award and leading his team to the NBA Finals and putting up ridiculous(Melo's voice) numbers in the process. Being around proven winners Jordan, Bird, Magic and other Dream Team members, Barkley was on a mission from Opening Night til his season ended.

    Carmelo Anthony is seeing a similar type of situation. Kobe Bryant who Carmelo is great friends with sees something in Melo no one else does the fact that Carmelo can be an NBA Champion and MVP if put in the right situation. LeBron James and Kevin Durant often argued as the 2 best players not only in the NBA but in the world are coming off of a NBA Finals battle that has to put some type of fire inside of Melo's heart. On top of that, he's being called everything he is not and looked at as a cancer to any NBA Franchise and not a guy who can lead a team to a title.

    All things Charles Barkley went through

    Barkley average 25.6 points, 12.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists on 52% shooting and lead the Phoenix Suns to a 62-20 record

    If Carmelo can average 25.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists on 50% shooting and lead the Knicks to a 55-27 record and a top 2 seed in the East and LeBron or Durant dont get gassed by the media all year, I can see Melo winning NBA MVP similar to how Derrick Rose came out of now where and won it after averaging 25-7-4

    If the Knicks then get past the East and the Miami Heat they will likely face the Thunder, Lakers, Clippers or Spurs in the Finals whom I think we can defeat if we're firing on all cylinders.

    Regardless this scenario looks so similar, Barkley whom people claimed was not in Jordan's realm let along world showed the world he is a force to be reckoned with and still not quite in Jordan's realm but not as far as people say he was. This is Carmelo's chance to prove he is up there with LeBron and Durant as a top player in the world and not just the NBA.

    Anyone watching closely sees a new guy, a new player someone who is playing hard every possession and I'm looking forward to seeing this theory come to fruition.

    Melo has always reminded me of Barkley, more so now with the bulk and his ability to play in the post.

    Chuck Barkley played 51 playoffs games in his first 6 seasons, Melo has 54 games in the playoffs over his 9 year career.

    @CA7: frankly, I expect Carmelo to have the best season is his career, considering how hard he's been working this offseason, how good he's been playing for the national team I believe he'll be one the main candidates to the MVP award this upcoming season.

    Comparing a star-Melo to a multi-positional super-star Charles Barkley puts this Post (in a 1 to 10 average) at a level-2

    Its hard to match Melo performance with any of the previous ex-star players in the NBA, because defense was a must in the NBA (back then) along with hand contact defenders.

    Charles Chuck Barkley were the toughest of all the players on the USA Olympic Team, and that includes Karl Malone, Ewing, and David Robinson.

    Maybe Carmelo is pulling a Lebron and will stop the BS and dog the league.

    Yeah but Charles was average at defending his position 1:1.

    He was a bully though, wasn't afraid to through an odd elbow, just an intimidator on the glass and a great scorer.

    I can kinda see the comparison, body type-wise and re scoring but that's all.

    They play/played different positions and have different games overall.

    I don't think Melo is better than Barkley.

    If there is player from the past you could compare Melo to it's Dominique Wilkins. Same position, great scorers, both perennial losers. Altough Nique' was far more exciting player to watch. His duels with Jordan/Bird were legendary.
