NO NO NO .. u got it all WRONG.
It was HOF Jason Kidd (9 minute) decision-making in all of lastseason 4th quarters.
Jason Kidd (decision-making) were our 4th qtr. SAVIOR in 82 games.
Plus it was the DYNAMIC duo of tandem "Kidd & Kenyon Martin" Winning 16 games of the final 18 regular season games.
Take away 10 day contract Kenyon Martin 16 wins from 54 wins, and u have a struggling 38 win team on a 4 game losing streak with Tyson & Melo out with injuries.
The NY Press/Media didnt write or mention anything about Kidd or K-Mart lastseason, they made it all about Melo/JR scoring. They never mention Knicks oponents always kept a defender very close to Novak, which stopped all the double-teams on Melo/JR.
But make no mistake about it, Melo carried the majority of production for that team and without him the Knicks wouldn't of had a shot at winning a single playoff game (possibly miss the playoffs all together), never mind winning a series and getting within a quarter of forcing a top tier team like Indiana to a game 7.
That streak where Melo went on that tear, scoring and leading to the longest winning streak in franchise history since the early 90s Knicks and beating quality teams like OKC on the road, etc.
The Knicks suck this year, but it's not cause of Melo. The opinion that Melo has been playing the best basketball of his career the past season and a half is pretty much shared unanimously by NBA analysts, and I share that opinion as well. It's a shame we have such an incompetent owner and management that basically gives away first round picks like spare change and has no clue how to build a team around Melo, which all but guarantees this team will suck until the day it's sold to someone else.

I should put together a post of how this forums Knicks fans turned into Melo-Fans, then into invisible-fans in KO forum.
Melo's 40 pts cant win a game this season .. 21-38 = big let down
