Doesn't change mine either. It was entertaining.....Melo needed this along with his fans more than anything. But if you look at some of the performances across the league tonight you come to understand scoring can be very overrated. Especially during an era when playing defense is very much out of style and near extinct.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] no one thinks your dumb or stupid breh it was just a spelling mistake and it got to me...... On the flip I don't agree with you on Melo, I think he's the one piece they got to keep going forward. He's just to damn nice, we got rid of Z-Bo and he is still pretty damn good because his style ages well. Same goes for Melo his style of play is the type of play that will be around when he is in his early to mid 30's. If I can think of a player he resembles it would be Dirk but he can be slotted into the 3 and 4 and he has a better post game.
It took years to build around Dirk but eventually they got that ring. I think its the same thing with Melo, the knicks got to build around him because right now its a hobbled together roster.
Love and respect, KnicksTape
You're a clown.
62 Point Performance is the greatest offensive performance at Madison Square Garden history.
You've become more of a Melo hater than an Knick fan.
I am here to remove your Knickerbocker membership.
You will now rot in the pit with Kiyaman and 3G4G as guys who only find pleasure in Melo failing than succeeding. Rot you sad soul.
Bobcats are TOP 5 in the NBA defense, they allow 95-96 points per game. This makes the performance greater than it plus the fact Melo had no turnovers.
This is the 4th time in NBA HISTORY someone scores more than 60 points under 40 minutes played. Kobe did it 2 times and Karl Malone one time. Melo has probably the most amazing one, because Malone and Kobe attempted around 20 FT.
This is better than Kobe's 81 point performance.
The more you type the more less educated you present yourself.
You want Bargs shooting over Melo? You're dumb. Theres no debating this, it's just a plain fact you're not a bright person.
100 out of 100 NBA personnel would choose Melo over everyone that isn't named Durant or LeBron. But you're talking about Bargnani's bumb ass? We play 5X better as a team without Bargnani. Bargnani hasn't done anything for New York for you to hold an allegiance to him.
You're only bringing up Melo because you're trying to play devil's advocate and not support Melo. You're a loser for that lameness.
Knicks still suck? Who cares.
Melo made history.
This team won't be good until trades are made.
Trades that include your man Bargnani because he doesn't make this team better.
Trades that don't include Melo because he's by far the best player we had.
Numero 33, the guy in your sig...
the guy in my sig giving Melo respect.
Now why don't you be a man for once in your life and pay respect to the guy that your idol pays respect to?
- Knicks Franchise Single Game Pts Total
- MSG Single Game Pts Total
- NBA Record for Most Pts ever scored for an individual with 0 turnovers.
- Most Pts by an individual since Kobe Bryant's 81 in 2006.
There are certainly more... especially with his FG% efficiency, Im sure...
That was incredible.
I was just glad to see it and we won...I believe when i saw B King score 60, we lost that game
Woj on MeloBetween the 22 combined championships in Chicago and Los Angeles, there's no adulation for a star who fails to deliver a title. The Knicks have gone 40 years without a parade – and could go another 40 without one – and still Anthony would forever be treated with a level of reverence in New York. There are no beloved ex-Hall of Famers like Patrick Ewing and Bernard King in L.A. and Chicago – just players who won championships, and just those long ago forgotten.
For those who think 'Melo's burden has left him too beleaguered in New York, it could be far worse elsewhere. Knicks ownership has turned the franchise over to him, and that'll only escalate in free agency. Whatever he wants, they'll give him. Owner Jim Dolan let him run out Mike D'Antoni and Jeremy Lin, let him have his eccentric workout coach on staff for a significant six-figure salary. They've centered the marketing on him; his Jordan Brand Nike deal is worth a mint in a Knicks uniform. In the end, this is the essence of Carmelo Anthony: a peerless scorer deserving of holding the franchise's and arena's forever records.
Every generation has its stars who were spectacular, but never complete enough to be the centerpiece of a champion. There's no shame there. This was a night when 'Melo's legacy as a scoring ace delivered him into the brightest light of this season, on basketball's most glorious stage at the Garden.
For all the noise and all the love washing down upon him, Carmelo Anthony needed to understand that for his own good, his legacy, there's nowhere better for a ring-less superstar on a max scholarship than beneath those dusty, old championship banners from so long ago. This was 'Melo's night, his forever moment at Madison Square Garden. For him, there should be nowhere else.
By far the greatest regular season Knick game by a player. Melo had a higher FG% than King .657 to .633. Bernard made 22 FTs for his 60, Melo just 10. Melo had 13 rbs to Kings 7 in the game. The Knicks also lost that game 120-114 to the NJ Nets.
Also beat Kobe's day when he scored 61. Kobe shot .613 and scored 20 pts on FTs. Had zero RBs in the game.
Most points scored by a player in the 2013-2104 NBA season so far.
