    JR and Melo have been the 2 healthiest scorers on the team. Now that the team is starting to fill out i suspect the offense will be shared a bit more. I have no problem with JR and Melo shooting most of the shots. I just don't want them shooting over 20 a piece, that many shots for just 2 players is going to take other players out of the game. Imo, you better win if you take that many shots. If it was me...i'll be more embarrassed than upset if I scored 30, 40 points and still lost the game.

    Woodson has been letting Melo & JR control & call all the shots on offense for 48 minutes per game .. when we true-blue Knicks-Fans been expecting "Felton, Kidd, Melo, and Stat" to be co-existing and controlling the flow on offense, plus rewarding defensive-players with easy baskets.
    We have to many players in the rotation that scores well in transition or halfcourt to where we do not need "ISO-Melo" to keep slowing down the game to score his selfish 30 points per game on 38% shooting.

    If there was no-Melo, how long do u think we Knicks would put up with Melo's ex-teammate JR.smith 34 minutes of bad-decision-making? We dont see any transition-baskets, fastbreak basket, consistent inside scoring, or team-defensive-stops when both Melo & JR are in the lineup.
    look at the end of the Celtics game I was frustrated with the isolation as well as other times....but sometimes that is our best option!

    Melo's ISO's have only picked up since Felton was out...The Atl game Melo was catch and shoot all game (how he started the season)


    When you do not have PG's who can drive and cause defensive breakdowns the alternative is one on one...and we do possess one of the best 1 on 1 players in the Game!

    People thought the samething about Ewing! They felt his game stopped the flow of the game

    another point of consideration...Melo has become a more willing passer..so if/when a double comes he kicks it to the open man..the isolations do result in getting open shots

    During The Nets game he drove and dumped it off to Amare for a dunk twice and found JR and Shump on kick outs


    Do we need to be more than an ISO team...of course..Melo going ISO will only go but so far

    And I think Woody knows that! He has praised his PG's almost as much as Melo over the course of the season he knows it takes ball movement and team work...but the last month has been like the end of last season with Amare hurt no starting PG and Melo and JR being our best 2 scores...the only option is to set up plays from The ISO!

    Did Someone Just Called Woodson A Clown (,,-___--,,). I swear you people overreact over one or two games.

    ^^When you’re used to cheering on a team that has been sucking for over a decade the anxiety attacks will appear more frequently, The panic seems to come and go so don't take it too seriously. Perhaps one of the new features for this site should be some paper bags. Might help with the hyperventilation and nausea...
