KBlack25,I agree with you on everything you have said about Melo.He has single handedly destroyed this team b/c he does'nt want to play team ball.The Knicks or anybody else CANNOT win playing Melo ball!!
I have lost alot of respect for melo b/c of the way he has acted this year.He quit playing,acted like a baby,got his coach fired and has completly gotten the knicks away from playing team ball.
Stat has clearly gotten a raw deal out of this whole situation and its not right.He only got to shoot the ball nine times BUT made 18 points.Melo on the other hand thinks he has to take every shot on the floor and thats the reason the knicks suck.
Melo has single handedly turned this knick team into the 76ers when AI played there.He acted the same way and how many rings did he end up winning? NONE!! The knicks also play alot like the cavs did when James was there.When the ball got threw to james he would hold it the whole 24 seconds and shoot.How many rings did James win with the cavs? NONE!!
So don't get ready anytime soon for a championship trophy b/c its not going to happen until Melo gets traded or grows up.
We'll see how Melo responds on game 3.
K Black you cannot seriously say Stat is giving 100% effort when he doensn't even put his hands up on Defense to get in a players grill
Not having any defensive awareness is one thing, but not even showing the minimal effort is just as damning. He also can't box out for anything.
Can't hate on Melo because he is trying his best to win. He stepped up big time when D'Ant stepped down.
To be honest...If I was playing under the former coach I wouldn't give him my all either...slimply because he was a clueless coach that only wore down his players with his coaching style.
I also wouldn't want to damage my game or body playing for that dude. We have a bunch on injuries and Melo is the only one on the team that can do something. He still tries to get his team involved but they are stinking it up...so what's a bro to do...but take matters into his own hands.
When we were playing with a healther roster Melo was close to being a triple double guy...now everyone that's left (healthy) is defering, but he can't do it alone. He'll try thou...and have fun doing it. I just want a healthy team to cheer for... forunately, I was blessed to have that...even if it was in spurts.
It's also funny you bring up the same sportswriters who regard MELO as a top five player and just VOTED MELO NBA PLAYER OF THE MONTH. But i guess as the song goes: HATERS GONNA HATE(kb black), BALLERS GONNA BALL(Melo). You sure this isn't PERSONAL like Melo didn't sign an autograph for ya, or were you one of those ****LOVERS that hated to see Gallinari go???
