    u right the past 3 seasons Ball-Hoggin Kobe Bryant been making 80% of the Lakers decision-making on offense.
    FUNNY HOW ......
    The Lakers went to the Finals 3 seasons in a row when HC Jax had the trio of "Fisher/Odom/and Kobe" run the offense for their teammates .. each one develope their own plays for Gasol & Bynum to score.

    you're judging Melo off the basis that he's selfish

    the point of playing is to play to your strengths, Melo moves the ball when its there but again it all works together

    1. Woody has to call a set
    2. Ray Ray has to get the ball moving
    3. Guys have to move when Melo gets the ball
    4. Melo has to be patient but decisive

    you make it seem like if he averaged 4 less points and 2 more assists our team would be better

    at the end of the day I dont give a flying **** who scores as long as they score

    At the end of the day, all our "OLD-HEADS" 4th quarter input paid off for a Knicks win. Why?
    All our "Old-Head" players had veteran experience in 4th quarter situation tougher than every game we had throughout the season.
    We had multiple players on our roster that could score, all our players were not isolation scorers, when we stop ball-movement all our offensive-plays became isolation plays.
    Kidd and Nash did not become HOF from running isolation plays.
    Or did u forget the Miami Heat had a few "Old-Heads" on their roster, and only lost 3 games out of their final 41 games of the regular season ....
    The Heats game highest scorer wasnt always Lebron, or Wade, or Ray Allen, u had Charmers, Bosh, and Miller also be the game highest scorer...

    Im bitter about not seeing any future growth in a Knicks organization becoming contenders under ISO-Melo running the show.
    What is ur excuse for being so BITTER about me calling a dribble-dribble 44% perimeter shooter a ball-hogger when he shoot 30+ shots a game? If it quack like a duck, and look like a duck, guess what? its a duck...

    Default "I want to be a free agent". Knicks star Carmelo Anthony talks free agency

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]





    I thought this was interesting. I think he will ultimately re up with the Knicks. its cool that he just came out with it instead of down playing it. What do you guys think?


    ps. if this is already posted, forgive me

    He's looking for the most money he can get. Opting out and resigning with the Knicks is that option so he'll take it.

    20 mil a year can bring back a lot of good players....I like Melo but I think i'd get 3 very good all round players, for one awesome offensive player. Just my .02...If he gets hurt, you'll realize what i'm saying.

    I don't think at age of 34 Melo will be worth $29M/year. I don't buy that "every player has to test free agency at least once in his career" talk. Melo wants more dough and I don't blame him. But I don't think he'll be worth that kind of money. If you asked me, I'd let him go and rebuild. If Melo signs elswhere in the summer of 2015 we'll have $7M in salaries. It gives us $53M to spend.

    This sucker chump has always been about his paper....

    At the same time this is the greatest news we could possibly hope for. Once he's truly free he can potentially be reeled in by another team. It only takes 1 team to save us from ourselves.

    Now here's what's interesting....Dirk/Duncan/Garnett and I think a couple other big names took paycuts so their teams could structure distributed salary elsewhere. This guy knows this is his last time to get paid...

    I wouldn't pay Carmelo THAT RIDICULOUS CONTRACT but we bouts to get Allan Houstoned we have a problem!

    I'm hoping we can say Good Riddance to this Cancer

    That's a good point about AH, his contract was a bad one but he probably thinks he was worth every penny. I could see him giving Melo that contract just because he can and not because it's a good business decision. Curse of a big market team I guess, too rich for their own good and can afford to pay for the Stat's Melo's etc., just wish we were lucky like the Yankees and brought a few championships instead of this 50 year record of futility.

    What I'm hoping for, this turns into an ugly Lin/Dolan pissing match and Dolan gets offended by Melo's hunger for money somehow some way.

    Does anyone one of you Melo lovers want to calculate not only Melo's albatross future contract yr-to-yr but the Tax ramifications for the Knicks for the 2014-2015 season?

    How's everyone liking that Brags trade now?

    This isn't going to end well folks....

    I'd be down to rebuild after this year. Sadly I just don't see this team getting it done, unless a major trade goes down....

    We gutted a decent team for this guy and now wants more money??? If you ask me, he can go to LA with Lebron and have a three-some with Kobe. Gonna be hard to be cheering for Anthony this season. I'll be rooting for Shumpert and Tim Jr.

    Since JR Smith followed Melo here, maybe he can follow him to the Lakers......
