    Erving couldn't win a title till he got Malone on his team so he should understand Melo's situation more than anybody.

    Knicks could have 12 LeBron James on the team. We still wouldn't win the title. We're cursed for life. Just accept it and love the team for what it is, it's easier that way. We are losers for eternity.

    Honestly i find myself rooting for the these guys (Murry, Hardaway, Udrih and hopefully Tyler)
    The young players u mention r working-hard to have a career in the NBA.

    Dolan hiring a decent veteran GM that value draft picks like he value keeping his job within the next 3 years, are a 20% chance happening.
    Dolan having no GM for the 2013-14 season, mean all related Knicks trade-rumors are rumors created by sport-commentators.

    If Dolan had a decent veteran GM, that GM wouldve been working on trade issues with several teams for Melo, during our first 15 games of the season, when Melo comment on his "player-option" to test the FA market in 2014 offseason.
    Having a 3-12 start without Melo playing in any of the 15 games. Melo's trading stock wouldve risen sky high (after a 54 win season).
    Having a 5-15 start with Melo in the rotation playing 40 plus minutes in all 20 games .. we all should know by now that Melo's trading stock dropped so deep there is not one NBA team willing to trade for a 2 yr $40M headache .. that still have teammate problem.

    So I guess the KNICKS beat the Spurs last night on the road in spite of Melo's 27-10 line. Lol

I feel he sold the young core out prior to the Melo trade when the rumors were running rampant saying in the media "They need to suck it up"…although Melo chased Lin out via free agency at least he did publicly show support for Shump this year as trade rumors have once again reared their ugly head.

    I used the "TEAM NAME" examples of lack of threads created to show the hypocrisy/agendas and how the acquisition of Melo has nearly created…."Melo fans first"….."Knick fans second"….otherwise we'd witness more defense cases for other players but we don't and we won't.

    Melo hasn't played good this year at an 80-90% clip and actually hasn't his whole time being here. The numbers back that up. Maybe closer to 60% if that. For crying out loud this year alone…..

    he's had 11gms where he shot below 40% at a very high usage rate…..he's only played 27gms do the math


    That's nowhere close to playing a good game 80-90%. But if no one strip searches your posts you'd be allowed to rob so many blind of truth. Trust you don't what to run numbers from other previous seasons it would be another "Melo Camp" embarrassment. Go ahead and choke on the 54 fools gold win season, trying to attribute all the credit to him. Those who have been consistently checking the pulse of this team since 2011 knows the true health and condition of this team. We've had a disease since day 1….went in remission…. and has resurfaced to the point we're almost near coma.

    Heck Joe Johnson(more well rounded player when there) produced 50 win seasons in ATL and no one took that team seriously and guess what no one has really taken us seriously since the acquisition of Melo. We didn't make the trade we did for Melo, Amnesty Billups for Tyson, and spend 2yrs in futility on Amar'e so we could GOLF CLAP a 54win season. You have low standards mine are nowhere close to yours. As fas as the sunrise is from the sunset...is how far apart we see things and what we want to see Top to Bottom.

    It's statements like that(Melo plays good games 80-90% of the time), which causes this dichotomy of chaos and minion propaganda. Let's deal with facts, instead of worrying if someone is oversimplifying. How about you stop GLOSSIFYING and GLORIFYING.

    You're looking for a "Hero" to venerate…I'm looking for a "Team" to appreciate….Major Major Major Galatic difference.


    It's quite obvious there is an undying passion of many fans on forums across the internet to go through extensive levels to defend their Binkie Melo. He doesn't care about you, your family, nor your friends. He doesn't send you personal letters of encouragement, he's not financially taking care of you. For all the positive anyone feels he's brought to this franchise he's brought as much negative. I want the Knicks to succeed, if it can be with Melo that's fine but not realistic to expect after a player has played 12 seasons and needs to do a complete 180 in how he approaches and dedicates himself to the game. Unfortunately but not surprisingly Melo's been a Denver failure here in New York and this is after getting away from the supposed San Antonio Spurs curse.


    I don't care what Melo did as a High School All-American

    I don't care what Melo did in Syracuse

    I don't care what Melo did as a rookie in Denver

    I don't care what Melo did consecutive yrs of post season bids for Denver

    I don't care what Melo did in the Olympics

    I don't care if Melo has won a scoring title

    I don't care if Melo was on a 54 win team or how many 50 win teams he's been on


    I only care if Melo will help the Knicks achieve peak success and not stifle/hinder it, nor put us in a horrible position going forward prior to and when his playing days are over.


    So my main desire at this point(although unlikely which I understand) is to blowtorch (starting with your Man Candy Melo) everything here, possibly retaining 1 spoil in THJR.

    It'll sink in one day, I won't lose hope in you
    So how do you explain last night donut?

    Clutch shot, great play...Shumpert showed. We know Melo is capable of these things, especially when his teammates play way.

    Anyone hating on having a top 10 player on this roster is just doing a disservice to themselves.
    It's to the point it's not even worth the debate, Melo's performance will do the talking, especially since he's a better player post all star break.

    Melo haters have to hold that.

    Knicks need to get their act together and build a good team around him OR ship him out and restart. One or the other. None of this current crap.

    Typical troll with nothing to say when the KNICKS win and Melo has a great game. This fool will pop up again like a bad rash the next time our team loses it'll be all Melo's fault.

    Default Knicks dangle Melo for Blake Griffin: ESPN Reports... (Melo's Days are numbered)

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    The Knicks are opening trade discussions and using Carmelo Anthony as bait.

    I wouldn't want to trade Melo for another superstar however, Id rather pick up young assets in this year's draft class.

    What is Blake Griffin gonna do for us? Realistically, he will have a worse impact on us. Melo is more beneficial than him.

    We can do better.

    Point is, - the Knicks are not only initiating but they are OPENING and OFFERING Melo in trade scenarios. The end is near. Melo will not be here come November 2014. This is as much evidence that is needed to see that he doesn't intend to resign here unless there's a drastic turnaround, which is not happening anytime soon with our entire future compromised in cap hell and draft hell.

    Cheers to another 10 years of misery.

    I just don't see Melo walking. Even if Melo won't be here come November 2014 we still have something to look forward to and that's. 2015.

    Blake Griffin has career ending injury written all over him.

    If you think Melo is a bad defender wait till you see Blake.

    Blake also is like Dwight in terms his game flows heavily on how much of his athleticism is utilized in the offense, meaning he can't play without a PG because he can't create his own shot at a high level.

    Exactly why the Clips might pull the trigger on this trade. They Clips are playing well but aren't dominant, Melo may put them over the top. The Clips could get this trade done by including Matt Barnes and Jamison in the deal or Dudley by himself. I'd do this trade in a heartbeat if I were the Clips GM.
