    Remember The only person so far who is faulting him if he does not take a pay cut is you. You used the word selfish. The NBA i a business and Melo has the right to make as much money as he wants.

    Of course the larger Melo's contract the less space the Knicks would have to build around Melo.....

    so what we can expect in 2015 plus is you praising Melo and 1/2 the board disgusted with Melo.....
    The only difference is that You will have to then come to terms that Melo was more interested in the money then solidifying himself as a Champion.
    Actually there is no difference we've been at such crossroads before

    Did Melo take a paycut the first time around when he could have had a more stacked team? Nope! He let Denver use New Jersey so he was assured he'd get his money before the new CBA kicked in.

    Why would he now since he's at the Pinncale and last Major Deal of his career?

    well, i was asked to leave a permanent redirect to the other threads for search engine purposes, so I'm not sure if it accomplished anything, other than merging all discussions into one, and perhaps befuddling the original connotation of discussions.

    You did a wonderful job no need to feel regret...Eventually it will lead to a healthy 7 course meal of "I Feel Crunchy" to those wearing the Melo Hackey Sack cologne...served up right here.

    This is exactly why you shouldn't be a mod because you don't even participate on this site.

    You stickied some BS thread about articles no one reads and you're the only one who replies to it.

    There were different conversations going on each thread and it's what separates them from each other.
    I sent a message to Running Jumper who rarely even visits this site, but you're a man you should undo this.
    I don't feel like going to one thread and searching to where I left off.
    These are too many pages to go through for a reference when it's easier to search a single thread for information.

    You most likely did this to hide the beatdown your boy smokes got because no one is skimming through 141 pages.

    Clyde, you're really an embarrassment to this site and I don't know why rady keeps you as a mod because you do nothing to contribute as a mod.

    We agreed to not have player threads anymore, and you just created the biggest merge in this site's history.

    There was 10 different conversations going on and now no one can keep track of the discussion.
    No body is going to read a 141 page thread, this is Cool Clyde's way of killing any discussion going on in this forum.
    The first post that was made in this merged thread is from Mar 26, 2011, 21:11.
    That's not how a thread starts.

    You just ranked the threads by reply ordered and merge everything that had the word "Melo" on it.

    WVKnicksfan made a thread called "I'm threw with Melo" and he got blowned up for it.
    It's pathetic if he reached out to you and asking you to do something about it, or smokes, rono and one of your pals ask you to take action to something you had no part of.
    You're a weak guy Clyde, a very weak guy.

    This ain't even worth it smokes.
    Clyde killed any hype that was going on in this thread.
    If you had anything to do with it, you're a homo. You Clyde, rono and 8 need to get back to your dead site and handle your circle jerking over there.

    I'll reply to this with no effort.

    1. You're lying again. There are no two points. You said:

    "Melo regularly takes terrible shots.
    is lazy about going to the basket
    settles for jumpers way too much
    makes bad decisions
    argues with officials
    gives up points in transition.
    In my eyes he's tied for worst play of the season"

    I've disproved all of this mindless nonsense.
    But now you can't go back pages, because theres over 140 pages in this thread thanks to CoolClyde.

    You could say whatever you stuck to smokes, you stuck to anything that you weren't having your way with.
    Joining 3 statements into one isn't really going to help you, I've broken them down each and ever since you've been unable to make a statement that debunks my information.

    You made that post and began to defend very little of it with the information I threw at you.
    This is where you failed, and now you're looking really stubborn about it.

    1 in 15 is an empty stat and this is the 2nd time you've repeated it. You've already seen how Melo done for his career as a clutch player in a much larger sample size. You're basing your opinion on a player's abilities on 15 shot opportunities that are impossible to make because Woodson doesn't know how to draw up offensive plays. Good job smokes, I'm not surprise again for being unable to consider using logic in one of your thoughts. You just write words and babble.

    I didn't even bait you.
    Why can't you reply back to my stats and information without saying "stats aren't important to me?"
    How stubborn can you be?
    What do you lose in replying to that?
    You could easily admit the information presented was interesting enough to shut down your argument get you back to reply to this thread again.

    The reason why you replied, no one will know because you came back with nothing but a struggle to recover what shut you down in the first place.

    I don't disagree with you about the kind of shots one should take in the 4th quarter...so you're just here for no reason at this point.

    There are two very basic points made in that quote:

    - takes terrible shots, is lazy about going to the basket, settles for jumpers way too much, makes bad decisions (point 1)
    - argues with officials and gives up points in transition (point 2)

    I've stuck to those points throughout the thread. Yeah I've re-iterated them in regards to his final second shots because as you only want me to voice opinions where I can show you fancy videos and graphs to back up my statements, I can do that, as I said before, 1 for 15 on final shots, I even posted a pretty youtube video for you

    As for why it wasn't my final word, as I said you're very good at baiting, no arguments there.



    I'm still here posting, still debating you point for point, you can keep claiming I lost as if it means something to try help yourself sleep at night but we both know it's not the case.



    No I'm not acting like that, but you keep falling back on your patented debate technique of putting words into other people's mouths and then debating something they never said, as it's the only way you can go on to claim victory.

    I didn't say I don't want Melo taking the final shot, I said I don't want him settling for crappy shots every time the ball gets put in his hands as the clock winds down. At the very least he can make a move to the basket, and try to draw a foul. He doesn't, he shoots contested jump shots EVERY TIME. How you can't comprehend this is beyond me. For someone who takes so much time writing out essays in response to me the fact you can't read my posts thoroughly is bizarre.

    I acknowledged that Woodson especially and the bums around him don't put him in the position to succeed like they should but when it comes to having the ball at the end of the game, the decision on whether to make a move to the rim or whether to simply shoot over 2-3 players comes down to one thing, Melo himself.

    It's ok metro, I know you need to cling to the deluded notion that you managed to beat someone at something on the internet to sleep at night, there there.
    I let my actions do the talking first, then I do some showboating and bragging.
    You know my style man, it's all psychological.

    You don't think I'm the say way when I did HS wrestling/baseball and currently at amateur boxing? Don't get affected by it man, and it makes you look baited when you reply to it. Be bigger.

    Of course the situation isn't clear, the point is that the chances of the Knicks somehow resigning Melo and managing to build a championship level team around him are very slim. The chips are totally stacked against us, pay cut or not.

    I wish I could reply to this, but this is from another thread.
    Clyde the Clown really made a mess here.

Aside from Miami, championships are usually won through the draft. I don't think we necessarily need another 'super star' to suck up more cap space. I'd much rather pay Melo his money and bring in some good complementary players and pay them no more than 10 mil per year.
    Aside from Melo, who can we really pay the max? Does Love even want to sign with the Knicks and can we even sign K-Love before he becomes a free agent with our cap situation?

    How much better is Love than Melo? Will Love want the max?

    Like what our options out there?

    Right now I believe we should cater to Melo so he can cater to us. Promise him we'll get players in a 2 year frame period if he could stick around for another average season and be patient. Melo got like 5-7 great years left his in career, he'll be more remembered if he sticked to this franchise and tried his best to get a championship, even if he doesn't get one.

    But I don't expect anyone to share that kind of opinion because I'm the type to like to see legacies happen in New York, Ewing had one and I'm hoping Melo could stay here and retire his jersey.

    We got out Superstar, we just need a top 5 supporting cast to surround him with.

    Tyson has been averaging some nice numbers as of late, but this is exactly the best time to trade Chandler to a team who needs a veteran center.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Let's see who's in need of a C (I won't include teams trying to rebuild and keep cap spcae)

    1. Hawks desperately need a center with Horford gone, and even when Horford comes back next year, it'll keep their front court strong if they have Milsap, Horford and Chandler together.

    2. Bobcats/Hornets - they have Al Jefferson at center, but he can play PF too. Bobcats don't have any legit 7 footers that can play around the paint, Tyson could be a different for them since they're a playoff team now.

    3. Cavs - they traded for Deng, but this team is still horrible defensively. Varejao use to be a great defender but now he has regressed. Not sure if Chandler is still on that DPOY level; but he would give Cleveland some depth and be an upgrade.

    4. Nuggets - they could use a big guy since Mosgov doesn't have stamina and JJ Hickson isn't exactly a center. Nuggets have a load of talented young players, but no quality starters beyond Ty Lawson. Faried, Chandler are average, Foye is below average. Chandler is a B level player when healthy can give you great production.

    5. Lakers

    6. OKC Thunder

    7. Suns(Plumlee has been doing good, but Chandler may be more of a leader that kind of young team needs to get to the next level)

    I am sure you watched the game last night........Did you not see a different ball club then you have been seeing ?
    Did you not see a different Melo then you"ve been seeing ? Assists ?

    Your are so narrow minded. If you do not see a difference in the team do you at least see a difference in MELO ?

    The team as a whole needed something and Melo's 62 did it no doubt.......There does some to be some love on the floor and there wasnt before the game just a lot of misery.....
    Didn't you see Melo's teammates hit shots?

    Hardaway Jr. (5-10 FG)
    Jeremy Tyler (7-9 FG)
    Tyson Chandler (5-6 FG)
    Pablo Prigioni (3-6 FG)

    Knicks shot 53% against the Celtics and had 26 assist

    against the Bobcats they shot 56% and had 23 assist.

    in the Bobcats game, teammates hit their shot as well, Melo scored 62 points but he got help to lead the Knicks to another blow out victory.


    So what's your point?
    You're trying to make it seem like things are different.

    Melo is the type of player who can do good taking 30 shots or taking 15 shots. He's a dynamic player...a SUPERSTAR.

    If you guys thought Melo was Al Harrington or Jerry Stackson a one dimensional chucker, then you've been proven wrong again.

    Melo's always been able to impact the game with his presence on the court alone.
    That's why we're lucky to have him and you're a weird creep for acting like Melo can't do these things on a regular basis, it's all based on his personnel and teammates. Can his teammates feed off his talent? It isn't the other way around no matter how hard you try to make it.

    You know Melo doesn't even know if he'll be back, if the right deal comes along he'll leave the Knicks high and dry. I do think that Melo will leave the 30M on the table to go to a team with a better chance of winning than the Knicks. All the Knicks can do is investigate the possibility of trading him and if you can get a couple of 1st round picks and some good players back then you possibly trade him.
    Well, another thread not even related to WV's exposure about being done with Melo before his 62 point dominant preform has been merged in it.

    Sorry Tiger if you didn't know where your post or thread went, Clyde just moved it without telling you. I enjoyed reading this post though, too bad theres 6 different conversations going on in one thread thanks to the Clown.
