    In my opinion, our win/loss doesnt matter this year but what we do at the trade deadline does. If we give Melo a piece that he finds worthy he might listen to our offseason plan but if we're not supplying him pieces that play to his strengths then I find no reason for him to stay.
    Can you clarify what exactly are Melos strengths? No need to talk about his weaknesses. Even his diehard fans are aware of them.
    What are his strengths?

    Lastseason, the two (ISO-Melo & ISO-JR) shouldve been put in the starter lineup to see how well they mesh with other starters (Tyson & Felton). Having the two on the court to close-out the 4th quarter with Jason Kidd making all the decision making in the lineup lead to a 54 win season, but now ole Super-Star Kidd is gone, and Melo & JR dont know left foot from right foot to close-out a game for a Knicks WIN.

    This is Melo & JR 8th season as teammates .. u can fool some of the people some of the time, but u cant fool all of the people all of the time.
    Should Amare, K-Mart, and Meta put this Knicks team on their back to carry it to a winning season, while the Media-Press give all the Knicks success to ISO-Melo, and his 6th man ISO-JR?????????????

    Really! what have ISO-Melo done?
    ISO-Melo score the majority of his team-high points in the first-half of the game (not a dependable closer).
    ISO-Melo dont let his teammates get a chance to be the team-high scorer in a game when they are hot.
    ISO Melo dont screen, pick n role, box-out, run on a transition fastbreak, nor does he warn his teammates about a screen.
    What makes this so BAD is HC Karl, HC Dantoni, and HC Woodson, puts up with all ISO-Melo flaws, and never put a coaching effort to correct Melo. All of Melo's teammates notice the power Melo have over the HC, so they fear what would happen to them if they called-out any of Melo's flaws. So team-comunication stops at Melo.

    Metro ....
    if the LinSanity era didnt show u anything, it did show us team-comunication on both sides of the court, where Lin never ran into a hard screen on defense, like Tony Douglas kept doing every game once we got ISO-Melo...

    Melo's strength are .. u give Melo 35 fga and Melo will score 28 points.
    I like the Topic of this Thread ....

    Will Melo leave the Knicks ?

    A real Knicks Fans response would be, "Im ready to help him pack ASAP, plus give him a ride to the airport with a one way ticket."

    Could u name me some peices to put around Melo?
    Please, name me some players that are going to run up and down the court 7 straight times to watch Melo be the last one back on defense, and take the shot on all 7 offensive-possession in the 1st qtr., 2nd qtr., and 3rd qtr.

    Little did some people know that "Chauncey Billups" was the best player in the Melo-Trade .. BIG-SHOT Billups finds a dozen ways to WIN a game other than scoring...

    Thats a great comparison...I think its even worse then what they did with Starbury. Its time for the Melo Mafia to be back like nothing ever happened

    He also mention Melo will leave after the 2013-14 season and will maybe head to LA.


    My question is, why risk the potential of this happening? Either trade Melo now or get a confirmation from him.


    Teams that could use Carmelo Anthony

    Atlanta Hawks
    Charlotte Bobcats
    Chicago Bulls
    Cleveland Caviliers
    Dallas Mavericks
    Los Angeles Clippers
    Los Angeles Lakers
    Memphis Grizzlies
    Minnesota Timberwolves
    Milwaukee Bucks
    New Orleans Pelicans
    Phoenix Suns
    Sacramento Kings
    Washington Wizards
    Utah Jazz


    This is still Team Melo, but the best for Melo and the best for New York should be respected.
    If the Knicks want to waste Melo's time and not build a roster or have a coach who will play guy's minutes who deserve it (Prigioni), then Melo would be better off on a team who could use his talents and Knicks would be better off getting as much value as they can for Melo because the Knicks need it. Our future is dark, no draft picks, not even much second round picks. Grunfield is a crap GM and gutted this roster out completely.
    Unfortunately the plan failed so you're absolutely right. It is time to start thinking about the future and trading everyone that has value now. I'd also put Chandler on the block. He's 31 and he's getting more injuries, but his stock is up largely due to our performance in his absence.

    I don't subscribe to the lets get a free agent franchise player plan. I think the way to build is through draft picks rather than free agency, or may be a combination of the two. But the Knicks traded all of their draft picks. I'd trade Melo for expiring contract and first round picks. Try to get some depth in the line up.

    We should offer Marbury a contract.

    The trade that would have made the most sense was before the year started...Melo for Jordan and Bledsoe and 2 2nd rounders

    AMEN! This is exactly why I felt letting JR walk was the obvious move. More so when Tim Hardaway Jr fell in our laps. I understood the notion that we had little recourse to obtain the talent of JR with our cap situation, and I will even admit that Woody seemed to have maximized the Smith effect last year, at least to the point where bringing him back was persuasive. But, to me, his attitude and off-court antics coupled with his playoff performance would've been the deciding factor for me.

    Knicks were in a groove, about to sweep BOS... then JR throws that elbow... After that, he went on a cold streak (much like the playoffs the year before). Based on 2 post seasons in NY... to me, it wasn't worth bringing him back to flop again next June.

    Throw in the surgery, the fact he wanted his brother, and we have a mess: And now we have one of the worst shooters in the NBA, throw the first 12 games... And every minute he gets... only stunts the development of Shump or Smith.

    Re-signing JR means we'll going to give up on Iman. It was obvious the moment we selected Hardaway that we couldn't move forward with both JR and Shump. We opted to put our eggs in JR's basket.

    And, like you said, it's been 9 years and Melo-JR have zero chemistry.

    The shot JR took with under a minute to play vs INDY... 4th quarter and we had lead... 20 seconds left on shot clock... and he chucks a 3 from the corner... Just shows you he is a lost cause. Woody is going to get himself fired believing he can turn JR into a basketball player. It'll never happen.
