    Again NOBODY wanted JR.....no team offered him any money both times when he was a restricted free agent and an unrestricted free agent despite the magical numbers he puts up for Knicks fans,,,,,

    I said it this summer and will say it again JR is a loser for this knicks team.

    Trade JR for a pack of peanuts and a fifth of Gin. Cheap Gin. We might have to give cash considerations for top shelf.

    I give credit to Melo for playing hard, especially on the boards. But, having watched Melo play with the Knicks for several seasons, as great and versatile a scorer he is, he doesn't seem to make the players around him better. Superstar players are supposed to draw extra attention like double-teams, theoretically getting teammates wide open and creating open shots for them. But, I just haven't seen that with Melo; when Melo is having a good game, it seems like the other players don't get easy shots and even play with a little bit less energy, at least from my perspective.

    What if the KNicks just released JR Smith? Would that not work within salary cap restrictions?

    Beno Udrih and Andre Bargnani just not doing it for you? There was that brief moment of Udrihsanity, especially when he made that crazy three pointer.

    I Like them when the ball is moving and we nail open shots....i like when Bargs hits his shots and drives to the basket and finishes. I don't like the 98% jump shots. We are too predictable, and coaches already have the upper hand by our previous game plans.....We just don't have a balanced attack....take my team in football, the RAMS. Until a few weeks ago, we had no running game and were predictable...since we established a running game, and now are winning games, cause we mix up the plan...just sayin

    Kenny Smith said it better "If u like inconsistency, then u like JRsmith" ....
    We are stuck with JR till Feb or July .. its time for Woody to play JR at his strength
    in a steady lineup.

    We are going to keep on losen till Woodson start playin players in a steady lineup.
    I dont beleive any of the garbage the medical-staff said about limit Amare & K-Mart playingtime ..
    Thats all Woody & Melo doin ..

    While Felton is out .. Beno & Barg should be getting 28 minute in the same lineup in each game, while Felton is out.
    This way the two players will have to create together to score, plus commit stops.

Our future is dark, no draft picks, not even much second round picks. Glen Grunwald is a crap GM and gutted this roster out completely.
    100% This is Team-Melo ....
    Melo's average 40 minutes of playingtime as a Knicks for 3 seasons .. And I still have not witness any coaches written design-play for Carmelo Anthony to score (its always ISO - one on one or one on two).
    What does that say bout our Knicks B.ball for 40 minutes per game.

    Not Hatin on Melo, I just cant find away to build a winning playoff team around Melo being a first option.
    Melo is not close to being a Ray Allen with KG & Pierce, or a Ray with Lebron, Wade, Bosh.
    Melo is not close to being a Harden with West & Durant.
    Melo is just a high scoring player that been making excuses each season of his NBA career.

    Glen Grunwald is the type that does everyone dirty .. A real GM wouldve kept a fan favorite LinSanity, plus wouldve had a future plan for a group of Old-Head players on our coaching-staff, a real GM wouldve known a ($10M per contract) Bargani having a bust 7 yr career on a nonplayoff Raptors team was not worth a 3rd round draft pick.

    everybody is talking about melo being a free agent, but keep in mind he has a player option at the end of the season. if melo gets injured he isn't opting out of the contract.

    Jimmy Dolan Jr. will never think about trading his most coveted human possession. He probably would rather go back to drinking his White Lightning than think about losing stock value with a Meloless franchise. Even if the Knicks win no more than 15 this games this season, Dolan is going to offer Carmelo his own television network, like he was planning to do with Lebron, after he becomes a free agent.

    Default Melo -vs- Stat

    Having a 3-10 start, Carmelo take on the world:
    Quote:"It's tough times right now," Anthony said. "The only way we're going to do it is we've got to do it together, to dig ourselves out of this hole. But if we keep digging and digging and digging, this hole is going to get deeper.


    Amare, who hasn't been the best player, but is clearly correct here:
    Quote: "It's hard for any player to get in a rhythm when the ball don't move," Stoudemire said. "I've been playing my entire career where the ball moves with everybody, and you end up having a career year. So if the ball don't move, then guys don't get into a rhythm. They don't touch the ball often enough to get into a rhythm, and it makes it tough for the rest of their teammates to have fun. Right now, we're not having fun. The ball's not moving. We're playing one-pass-one-shot…Teams that move the ball win. Teams that don't lose. It's pretty simple.
    Which player is reffering to Knicks basketball ....
    Bottom line the 3-10 start is all ISO-Melo's fault.
    Woodson's offense allow Melo to chuck, and chuck, and chuck some more. Other players start to chuck too.
    Which comes down to "individual b.ball" that leads to no-defense .. we went through that with a 40 minute performance Starbury.

    The 54 win season were predicted the day we signed HOF Jason Kidd .. even I mention the week we signed Kidd "we were going to win the Atlantic Division Title".

    I agree. But also you can't expect to win when your SG's Shump/JR plays 30 minutes and both finish the game 1-12 with 2 rebounds...Our SG's suck, its that simple. Our PG's are also so so, but all are backups on the better teams...The last few games in Melo's defense, he's playing well. Yeah sure he chucks up some shots we all question, but last night against a very good Portland team, he shot 50% with what 16 rebounds 3 assist. Not bad numbers. Sadly, our team needs to stop this defensive switching. Why can't Woody throw teams off, and mix up his defensive schemes. Part 2 is if you have a crappy offense, it will only expose your iffy defense, which it has. Try what works best defensively. Can';t hurt
