Now he acting like he wants out
Not to mention his cap hold the summer of 2014(150% of his previous season salary...lol) will be ginormous eating away at any additional little wiggle room we had during Free agency.
Remember all those fans bichin at fans for bichin at Grunwald for not getting it done this off-season saying he only had so much room to work with? Well what do we think will happen if we hike up Melo's salary to the tune of highest paid player in the NBA?
Once he's signed his salary will be more than his Opt In salary of 2014 by about $2-3mil more<--------That right there could be the difference of trying to sign someone like a Copeland talent or not.
Fans will only care once Melo complains he has no help and we're stuck in perpetual mediocrity.
Not sure if serious... he just said he's gonna recruit players to NY, which to me means he's not going anywhere.
Melo is a fraud in that he's not really a New Yorker. Sure he was born in Red Hook but he's a Baltimore kid through and through and has zero connection to NYC other than where he came out of the womb.
But he's definitely a legit baller, there's no fraud in his game when he's motivated to play (which isn't all the time - he has the habit of being lazy)
This thread is a real laugher
I think you can win a Championship with Melo. His offensive-game is Paul Pierce like (look at his midrange and 3 shooting percentages last year, they were excellent). That said he doens't have Paul Pierce's defensive game and if he wants the max contract you won't be winning a chip with him. Not unless we upgrade at Center. Maybe if we got Mark Gasol or Roy Hibbert would his staying be good.
Why would Memphis take that trade?!?! Offensively Chandler and Zach Randolph cannot coexist.
haha Memphis is my 2nd favorite team in the league. The reason they cannot contend is because they literally have 0 shooters on their squad. If they ever got rid of Gasol it would need to be for all shooters and players that open up the court for Z-Bo, which we probably don't have.

Sometimes I wish we would just go back to the mid 2000's because some of you whiny b!tche$ dont deserve a good team.
You seriously cry about everything. Melo this and Melo that, JUST SHUT THE F**K UP AND ENJOY THE TEAM.

My first post of the season is this crap, but here we go.Melo, please just be quiet, and do what we got you for, put up numbers.Thanks.
I basically just ignored this. Regardless of what Melo said, I believe he'll re-sign with us. If he doesnt, thats outta my control. What am i gonna do, go to MSG and start an anti-Carmelo parade?
I might root against him depending on who he signs with but whatever happens happens. I'm just trying to enjoy the present and ignore all the negativity aimed at us by the media.
I all urge all my Knicks family to ignore the media, not get angry over dumb sh*t and just enjoy the season. I recently gotta PS3 and I didnt get 2k14 right away so i copped 2k10 to see how that was. I didnt even bother playing any games with the Knicks. I dont even wanna think about the Chris Duhon Knicks.
Lets just enjoy what we got now
@KingStarbury3: bro, where you been? I haven't seen you in ages. Good to have you back.
