Because at age 34 and 35 I do not believe Melo should be making 28 million a year..........Do you ?
My issue with Melo on defense is that I have zero doubt he has the ability and strength to be a lock down defender but at certain times he just does not step up.....
Statistics can sometimes lie and voting isnt always a tell tale sign I mean look at last years 6th man.
The current Boston Celtics who, for some reason, have a way better record than both the Nets and the Knicks.
Just a thought.
Chandler has been the Knicks leader on defense the past 3 seasons. Melo's never been a defensive special, you're being plain retarded asking him to be Indiana Pacer Ron Artest on defense when his strength is offense.
That's like asking Raymond Felton to play like Chris Paul.
when will the sillyness end?
I don't think Melo will be a lock down defender, his defense isn't Eddy Curry bad or Jamal Crawford bad so I'm not worried about Melo defensively. Do I want him to give 100% on defense and make plays? Of course. Am I expecting him highly to preform on defense every night? No, that's foolish.
It seems like you don't even know who Carmelo Anthony is. Since when Melo has become a lock down defender or people expected him to be?
Next thing you know, Ski wants Melo to average 7-8 assist per game like Melo..."Melo has to be a complete Superstar, make his teammates better, play point forward and create shots for the lesser player, run back on defense and block shots...make plays, statistics lie" - skisloper

Hey Metro, or should i call you MetroMelo?
Did you say i present nothing to the table? LOL.
Just read my post about team concept. That one post alone brings more to the table than all of your posts combined.
Man, looking back at the box score from Game 6 last year in INDY... Still pisses me off. Pacers shot FORTY-SIX FREE THROWS. Made 34 of them. We shot 18! We only had 7 fewer rebounds, even though we had more offensive rebounds. Sure, we shot some threes... But we made over 4-% that night. Not like they were driving to the hoop every possession. Knicks were perfect from the charity stripe... 18-18. If Indy only gets 36 free throws, still double what we were awarded... Knicks up 13 with 9 to play, and most likely we are playing a Game 7 in NY.
If Melo wants to take 12 million in order for the franchise to get a chance to sign a good player, I'm 100% begin it because
Wade and Bosh did the same thing Miami, and now the Heat recently have two championships.
I think Melo needs to find someone like CP3 or Rondo to join forces with and make a plan.
Only if Clippers were 3-13 right now and CP3 got tired of Doc Rivers...demanded a trade to New York.
SAS saying he is hearing Melo won't stay with the Knicks if he can get paid somewhere else. Might not be surprising news given the team struggling like it is but like SAS says the Knicks would be wise to trade him by trade deadline and get something back for him.
