    I can honetly tell you im starting to think we should'nt have done the trade for melo.This team has'nt hardly improved at all since he came here.He is a great scorer and can score 30 pts a game when playing good but they won't get a team nowhere b/c Melo can't make the players around him better.Some players can and some can't and melo can't.If we would'nt have made that trade I can honestly say I think the knicks would have been a better team.

    all he has to do is grow up, and play like he was at the beginning of the year. Take fewer shots and trust your teammates with those passed-up shots. He's here and he's here to stay. At this point, it's the coaches' job to get this into his head.

    Yes he does have to grow up and have that same attitude that he had when he said he wanted to win.This team played great ball on the court.He has to realise he can still get his 25 pts a game with fewer shots b/c of the talent he has it would come easily.The ball movement has completly stoped b/c of Melo and smith.We have seen over and over when melo gets hurt that the ball movement comes back.I agree it is on the coach to fix this problem BUT I also think Melo has to do his part and agree to share the ball.This team will never win if Melo keeps this kind of attitude and thats a fact.Yes we will make it to the playoffs but won't stay there long if melo does'nt get his act together.

    I guess leading the NBA in scoring isn't getting your act together???? What about the other 11 guys on the roster???

    Did leading the league in scoring get AI anywhere? NO it did'nt and it won't melo either.Whats the use to have a roster when you are'nt willing to pass the ball to them for a wide open shot b/c you are getting double teamed.

    If I remember correctly AI did make it to an NBA finals....Anyway bad comparison...AI was a 6'1" point guard...MELO is a 6'6" point-forward...Anyway...Who is MELO supposed to be "sharing the ball with????" Seriously who???? I watched that debacle Sunday...Melo drops 24 in the first half so the HEAT doubled him and then what???? JR,Novak,Stat,Felton..all sucked it up If I am coaching against the KNICKS I TRIPLE-TEAM MELO and force the rest of the scrubs to beat me....

    There is no way u can compare Melo to Iverson .. Iverson were the unconditional first pick of the draft, plus Iverson publically stated to fans and the NBA during his rookie season "that he is not a PG, reguardless of the 8 to 12 assist he gives out per game". Which forced the Philly 76ers to trade their high scoring SG-Stackhouse to get Iverson a PG name Snow. The tandem backcourt of Snow & Iverson took Philly to the finals, plus made Philly a 3rd or 2nd round playoff team each season. Not a first-rounder like Melo.

    Iverson biggest controversy were telling the League he is not a PG! (something Marbury shouldve did)
    Iverson controversy was not being the first player to wair braids, or to miss ego coach Larry Brown practices (every star player missed Larry Brown abusive practices starting with Suger Ray Richardson, David Robinson, Rodman, Reggie Miller, Mark Jackson, and practically all of the Championship Detroit roster.).

    The Denver Nuggets forced a running-uptempo Iverson to play PG with slow-ball moving SG-JR.smith & SF-Melo. This is why u always seen a running-transiton Iverson scoring a layup on a 1 on 2 or 1 on 3 defenders beating the shiii out of Iverson .. u rarely seen JR, Melo, Nene, Camby run on a fastbreak with Iverson.
    This is why Melo & JR look lost on every fastbreak the Knicks run the past two seasons...

    this team need 2nd player like MELO but on diffrent position + PG with better IQ [Lin]

    have u seen his spin move vs heat with +1 and he didnt fear Birdman which is known as same blocking machine as Ibaka.

    All u melo haters are morons... He's passing the ball just as much to the same people. They're missing shots. That's why we're losing! If they were hitting them he'd pass more but since they're missing he shots more.

    Nobody hatin on Melo more than u by putting down Melo's teammates .. Recall, Melo's a top-3 high scorer on a winning team. Everyone know Miami Heat is not just Lebron, or OKC is not just Durant
