Carmelo is an awesome scorer .. no one can take that from him, but thats all Melo is in a 82 game season.
All the Knicks Fans who knew this about Melo wanted the Knicks to stay distant from the Melo-Trade.
Dolan shouldve gave "Stat & Felton" a full season to gell with Gallo, W.Chandler, and Fields (Three-different type of SF) to base their two leadership roles given a 82 game season, and playoffs.
Melo couldve been signed by the Knicks after a shorter CBA take over without the war between big-market vs small-market being the trickster at setting all the CBA rules.
Owner Dolan's knowledge for greed, instead of knowledge about a Winning NBA or NHL team will always keep Knicks Fans on hold for a championship or a visit to the FINALS.
Donnie Walsh STUPID idea of signing two Max players went to Dolan's greed .. rather than add several star-players to compliment each other roles like GM Ainge, and GM Riley did by keeping things simple in the old CBA respective by paying high salaries that are quite lower than the max salary to keep several role-players on the team for 3 to 4 seasons.
