    Nooooo this is much ADO about NOTHING. This "article" is nothing more than what that punk did to MELO last night: A cheap shot low blow. Lin fans acting like little BI's now for real tho. Go root for Houston PLEASE!!!! Real KNICK fans are about to enjoy our best season in over a decade. Lin fans can go ******* real talk

    Look at the votes, Jim.

    Was discussing with you just the other day, Jim, that I think Melo's in for an epic year.

    Have also stated in the Lin thread, Jim, that I think it's time to drop the Lin talk and discuss the huge season that awaits the Knicks, Jim.

    Stop begging for an argument that leads to other (off) topics you'd prefer to be jaded about, Jim.

    Jim.

    Relax.

    Agreed, he seems to fall into all of their traps. Maybe Kidd will help with the media, Joumana did coach the guy into delivering more than just simple blah.

    I think Melo has shown he can do everything you need him to do, including pass the basketball. I think in his heart he's a scorer, and at times he has dominated the ball, but we have to consider the circumstances. I think if you get the right chemistry going on offense, Melo will get on board with it.

    The article makes the point that Melo has never averaged 4 assists. Ok, for what it's worth, let's look at some of the other SF in the league, assist figures ('11-12 / career avg.):

    LBJ 6.2 / 6.9
    Paul Pierce 4.5 / 3.8
    Carmelo 3.6 / 3.1
    K. Durant 3.5 / 2.8
    Luol Deng 2.8 / 2.3
    G. Wallace 3.1 / 2.1
    Granger 1.8 / 2.0
    Rudy Gay 2.3 / 1.9

    If we throw in top scoring SG for comparison:
    D Wade 4.6 / 6.2
    Kobe 4.6 / 4.7
    Joe Johnson 3.9 / 4.4

    So clearly Melo is not in the same class as LeBron, and trails Pierce, Wade and even Kobe and JJ. It's an area he can still improve, but it hardly a huge hole in his game.

    I've never in my 20ish years of fallowing sports have I seen hate for your team's best player like I do here (and on a good team at that). It's funny how fans in other cities always support their team with all their faults. No team is perfect, no player is perfect but while he is here he is ours and he isn't going anywhere soon. Get over it.

    The response to this will prob be BUT MELO IS LAZY blah blah blah. If Melo is "lazy" then you're prob worthless. We are headed into a full season with one of the best rosters we have had in YEARS and yet ppl still find something to be pissed about to the fact that every thread eventually turns into a shouting match.

    I really could care less about Lin anymore. What happen happen now let's look at what we do have like Amar's dropping $100k to have Hakeem work with him for 2 weeks.


    "He gets criticized for what he does, and thatís being an offensive machine. Iím tired of reading it. He doesnít play like LeBron James. He can pass, but heís a scorer. Heís an offensive force. Thatís what he does."

    Ps. Crazy8 this is not an attack on your post just some built up frustration from reading around this site. I just don't see much purpose in pointing fingers and saying "Look, he's selfish!" What changes by guys on a forum saying it over and over. It starts in practice with trust and with an older roster respect will go around to each locker. Same affect Tyson had will be increased with guys like Kidd, Felton, Camby and Thomas.

    Go USA
    Go Knicks

    Kidd will add a new dimension to Melo's game. Feel out your teammates early, get them going, then get yours in the 4th during crunch time.

    Great point supported by actual research!

    This is a great post right here, proves how people really exaggerate his selfishness. There are times where I think he should shoot a little less but overall i dont think his balance between shooting and passing is too far off. I didnt think Kobe went to Bynum enough last year but he was still a great player. Perhaps having a point guard that can control the tempo will help both of them (Nash in LA, Felton and Kidd with Knicks). Its not a knock on them, Lebrons really the only non point guard in the league that can be your first option on offense and your playmaker. Some people just need to learn how to expect less, thats why these dudes are so uptight about Melo spending more time bashing him this offseason then supporting the actual team.

    I think he will too, Melo wont have to dominate the ball and be the point forward. Sometimes hed play so hard early in the game he'd be tired in the 4th, with this team I dont think that will happen and I think he'll get more help. Im expecting a better year from Amare as long as hes healthy

From Patrick Ewing to Marbury to now Melo there's always am attack on the teams best player and I just don't understand how you can claim to root for a team but hope that individual fails
    EXACTLY... If Melo fails then the Knicks fail PERIOD. There is a reason why he is on Team USA and why he's such a big part of what they do and I don't see any other player other then Durant able to do what he does (minus the inside game Melo possesses).

    I remember when things were really bad and watching our team lead by guys like Crawford, Randolph and Lee and getting torched by players like Melo and others of his level and wishing we could have someone of that consistency on our team. Now we have him and ppl want him to stop being Melo and start being a NY mold of Lebron. Not happening and not why we brought him here.





    That is what he does.
