    It's been a long ass time since we had a top 15 player on this roster.

    In that order
    There's no possible way you can convince the Melo trade was worst than the Curry trade.

    Not even close.

    Its the effects of the Melo trade not the trade itself.......If Melo was so greedy he could have just waited until the end of the season and joined the Knicks .....Held on to our trade assets and draft picks and really provided Melo with a solid team around him....BUT Melo wanted his money and now we all must pay the price.

    others? K-mart is too violent 3-4 fouls in less than 10 minutes

    Amare - Forget



    Pablo average 5 miunes per game what can he do in 5 mins

    JR his game style is like playing on drugs awfull scoring %

    and u think such roster is enough to comete vs Pacers Heat Bulls Spurs?

    Woodson does what ISO-Melo tell him to do ....
    Glen Grunwald does what ISO-Mel tell him to do ....
    one down two to go...

    It was not greed by Melos part. He made it crystal clear. He wanted to give Denver something in return. Melo leaving as a FA was never an option. He would have signed a three-year, $65 million contract extension if he wasn't dealt to another team by the trade deadline.

    What are we now? with a 3-6 record heading into Detroit to meet player/coach Billups Pistons for a showdown between PG-Brandon Jennings and JRsmith. Then we come home where we have a 1-4 record to play the 10-1 Indiana Pacers.
    Then we go back on the road for a 4 game swing in 6 nights vs ....
    @ Washington - 1-2 home record
    @ Portland - are not taking any hostage at home
    @ Clippers - contenders at home
    @ Nuggets - lookin 4 any edge to win at home

    I will let u do the MATH on our next 6 games .......

    PS .. The only way we become winners in the next 6 games are ISO-Melo have to take the "Limitation & Alternate-Games" off of Amare & Kenyon Martin, and take a back-seat to receive 32 minutes a game. Star player what!!!

    Melo could have signed with Denver at the end of the season and did a sign a trade with the Knicks....No draft picks and no Mozgov

    No he couldn't. Everybody knew that NBA was going into a lockout when its collective bargaining agreement expired at the end of that season. No deals/contracts could be made until the new CBA was done.

    With Melo u can play the game of which came first?
    A) Glen Grunwald demotion
    B) Or Melo's anouncement to opt out at end of season.

    In 2008-9 Chauncey Billups took ISO-Melo Nuggets to the WCF, where Melo average 34 minutes, 18 shots a game, 22 pts, 7 rb, 3 ast.
    In 2009-10 ISO-Melo's 40 minutes, 22 shots per game, 28 pts, 6 rb, 3 ast, loss in the first round to Utah bc all his lastseason teammates showed up for the postseason games without any effort. Which made ISO-Melo sick during the 2010 All-Star offseason FA market. To where Melo made a comment in August of 2010 of playing in New York. La La La La

    ESPN Fantasy Projection: In many ways, Melo is the modern version of T-Mac. There is an endless debate about whether he truly understands the nuances of winning games through team ball, but there is no doubting his love for hogging the rock and hoisting a ton of shots. In other words, just like T-Mac., Melo is a beast in fantasy! He will continue to be a statistical force as a scorer, including plenty of 3s and a ton of FTs this season, too. The only drawbacks are a mediocre FG% at high volume (20-plus FGA per game), no hustle stats and a propensity for missing 10-15 games each season. He'll be highly motivated, though, since he can opt out and become a free agent at season's end.

    Metro .... I hate to shut down ur nice "Melo-Team" thread by throwing a big wrench in the process ..

    Melo's career in first half scoring points, actually doubles the amount of points Melo score in the 2nd half of a game. Especially vs defensive-teams.

    When oponents have a double-diget lead on Melo/JR, they take the defensive-pressure off of Melo/JR to trade points.
    This was obvious in Melo/JR era on the Denver Nuggets, and its been obvious on the Knicks.
    Thiats why I was against the Knicks bein apart of the chaotic Melo-Trade in the 2010-11 season.
    Melo is not the 4th qtr. top scorer so many Knicks-Fans hype him up to be .... Recall ..
    The Melo's pass to Jared Jefferies on the peremeter with 3 seconds remaining in a one-point lead in a postseason game.
    That game showed Melo's team-ball IQ .. Or better yet, Billups & Amare prove Melo's worth in that postseason game by holding a 6 point lead from tip-off all the way to the final minutes and a half of the game, before Amare/Billups went out with a injury.
    We had a bad-decision making Jamar Crawford who never wouldve made that decision if Jefferies was wide open under the basket.

    Comparing Melo to T-Mac is BS and something sports media does just to get people to read. You can say the exact same thing about Kobe (if you hate Melo, you should hate Kobe too). Kobe is an incredibly selfish ball hog and has been his whole Career. He had a couple things that helped him 2x. He had the best center in the league, and maybe most dominant player of all time in Shaq, and he had a very very talented All Star center who could space the floor and pass well in Gasol.

    T-Mac was an all world talent but injuries derailed him by the time he had a good team with Yao. Also Yao was prone too so the 2 stars were always hurt. Plus T-mac still had that one year where he had that 20+ game win streak in a much better western conference...you can't discredit someone just because of bad luck. To me Melo has had bad luck and on the Knicks he's stuck with bad management.

    A much fairer assessment is that Carmelo is a flawed player, but we can't make final judgement on his career until he has had someone just as good as him playing next to him.

    Because literally every player in the NBA is flawed outside of Lebron James (best team player of all time in my opinion, and can do anything/everything)

    Imagine if Melo had prime Shaq too? He'd have ATLEAST one ring.
