Carmelo isn't a playoff player. He showed how useful he can be during the regular season, he was named player of the month for a reason. But he's been underachieving when it really counts - in the playoffs. He makes $20M/year and he's supposed to carry the team even if he constantly gets doubled or if other major pieces of his team are injured. I'm not saying he should win the series against a top seeded team completely on his own. But I do expect him to win ONE DAMN GAME, to play like he played in G2 in Boston. I understand Miami plays some great defense and knows how to shut him down, but FFS if he didn't play like **** for a huge part of the season maybe we wouldn't face the Heat but Indiana, Orlando or Atlanta!
Of course, it's not solely his fault, Amare underachieved as well, we played without a respectable point guard for a good few months, D'Antoni failed, some injuries occured, but still, if you want to be considered a superstar, you have to make things happen.
