    In their support, meaning those fans that watch the game and those who've actually played, they haven't had a Melo since forever. They got use to a team of B players overachieving and before that a big-man star in Ewing where the true scoring bigs have been phased out.

    They don't know what a Melo is supposed to do nor a team with him. To them it's either iso or ball movement, both extreme. It's about balance and exploiting match-ups. So forgive them.. for they know not what they say.

    Melo he gutted it out through a serious injury. He's a warrior and that's what you want. We got another warrior trying to make it back off the shelf too, with time to heal up. I'm bout to order some hyperbaric chambers!

    Melo is the only legit shot we got at a chip. Period.

    Ask the Nuggets and Clippers.

    Yeah Yeah Yeah .... Knicks Management and coaching-staff hasnt been on the same-page in decades, at least since the feud with G.M. Grunfield vs JVG. We had some nice players, but we didnt have the team-effort (coach to players).

    Melo has his good points in scoring under pressure, but Melo also have many flaws, the kind of flaws that always keep us under pressure.
    I wish ur point describe Melo, "u dont have to tell a driver of a car he/she have to steer" however, Melo is the guy u have to keep reminding to pass the blunt lol

    HOF Jason Kidd player/coach guidance are the only legit shot we got at a chip .. the #1 reason we gave a 40 yr ole Kidd a 3 yr contract (to keep lockerroom-discipline on the team).
    JR & Melo -vs- Amare is the same exact problem Denver had with JR & Melo -vs- max-contract Kenyon Martin (Denver had to get Billups to defuse the problem, the same as us getting Kidd)...

I'm still wondering if u cheer when we win and score because if so then you're cheering for MELO a majority of the time... U need a new team, if ur gonna just hate on the teams best player. He isn't going anywhere and the,system isn't either so get over it

    Wow! I been giving all 54 wins success (cheers ) to Jason Kidd 4th quarter performance for doing all the little and big things to win the 54 games .. Melo did his role (score), and thats all Melo did.
    Melo's selfish ball-hoggin reminds me of Marbury, only thing is Melo shots go in 44% of the time, Marbury 39%
    Both had/have problems gellin with Knicks teammates .. Marbury & Houston -vs- Melo & Amare

    See now it would be hard for Melo to do his role and score if he doesn't have the ball. Just saying.

    Woody has now said if he is not getting anything from JR he will limit his minutes.......With the Knicks roster being deep Woody is starting to at least make some smart comments in he will go with who is hot and he is not obligated to anyone.........We are in Woody's hands now.......

    JR's elbow, partying and terrible playoff performance has probably cost him millions in a new contract.

    Jason kidd didn't even play in all of our 54 wins so how could he get credit for all of them...as for steph and houston, Houston was hobbled and couldn't reach full potential with steph...kiya i want u to know that I'm not even a melo fan, my favorite player of all time is j kidd, my favorite knick on this team is stat but i give melo all these props because without him we're a lottery team but somehow u look at his faults when he does more good then bad. He's our mvp and somehow that doesn't appeal to u...

    u right, Kidd didnt play in the final regular season game (53 wins lol) .. the reason we dont have any design plays, or use the pick n roll with Tyson, Amare, Copeland, or Martin, because Melo is not going to screen or pick for any of his teammates, u dont see Melo box-out so Tyson, Amare, or Martin can get a rebound, but they do it for Melo.
    Melo dont appeal to me as our MVP averaging 40+ minutes with only 2 or 3 assists per game, taking 32 shots to get 30 points, never rewarding his teammates with a shot when they force opponents to turnover the ball with a block, steal, or offensive-foul.
    When offensive players enter the game Amare, Novak, Copeland, u never see Melo give them a warm up shot they will go 5 to 6 min without shooting.

    Before Game-2 we loss 3 of 4 games .. Melo having a injured shoulder, I wonder how many shots Melo would be taking if his shoulder wasnt sore?

    And how many assists should our power forward average. At his position I'm sure he's at the average.
