You'd have a point if say for months and months and months a myriad of Phil Jackson threads were being created but this is still very fresh and brand new. Not stale like all those over redundant Melo threads created namely by those trying to absolve blame and exclusively glorify and laud him.
No need to get all Metrosexual on us Tig. He dropped a link where he would continue posting via the web about this team(actually about MELO). How about finding the link and join him in discussions if you haven't done so already since you miss him dearly.
Mods do what you want.... I won't lash out at you in rage Metro style either if the thread is merged

Metro will b back, especially if Phil Jax takes the job, and Jax agree to give Melo a extension (which I doubt).
The Phil Jax news has been more important (exciting) than any Knicks news this season.
The Knicks has been playing so bad that Knicks forums are letting any NEWS of "Phil Jax the Knicks Savior" be posted untill the Knicks & Jax deal is sealed.
I wonder how the Dantoni's Tanking Lakers (Jim/Jean Buss & Magic/Kobe) feel about Phil Jax joining the Knicks?
I hope the hiring of HC Brown/Dantoni was not fiance Jeanie idea to daddy, or the Kobe extension?
I miss what Metro brang to KO .. Metro & Crazy-8 kept KO Forum flowing with all types of knowledge.
It's just to bad the two didnt notice their good-cop vs bad-cop creativiteness had (past-tense) made the KO forum invaluable.
He was also notorious for suggesting to other posters placing them on ignore if they didn't agree with his opinions. I mean come on that's childish and ridiculous.
Everyone is free to post anything they want, this isn't a popularity contest that dictates when anyone should show their face on this forum.
The team is playing somewhat better(sans schedule) therefore we should be talking up a storm about the team right? We're winning
Actually I very rarely saw as many converse(past few months) with Metro.....instead he went around on his crusade trying to flame out sloper/ky/myself because we had a differing opinion. Oh and I tried to talk about many different subjects and have thread starters to back them up.
It wasn't until he got his repetitive subject matter merged by a respectable mod did many come out from behind the walls like roaches trying to mob up.
No 1 poster should dictate your support of this forum, otherwise it shows you're not really a fan of the TEAM but more so of personalities.
Like I said in my previous post any of you have the freedom to talk about THE KNICKS, nothing is holding you back unless all you want to talk about is 1 singular subject matter(which even then no one is held back).
If everyone shared the same opinion it would be even more boring. Forums aren't for any closed group or any 1 individual, they're for everyone. Learn how to adapt when fan climate changes. For crying out loud this team is 14-15gms under .500 and had been under .500 all year..... there's enough blame to go around for everyone involved with this organization.
Press Conference appears to be coming Tuesday per Marc Berman...New York Post
i'm the merging mod, the model merger, the melo masher, the one who chased Metro away with an attempt at straightening things out. As I've admitted, the merge did not accomplish what I'd hoped, but when I asked the forum if there were any particular Melo threads they'd like to be reinstated, there were no responses.
As the Phil Jackson hire is relatively new, I think we should leave the threads as they are for now, and eventually merge them, just to have poster's opinions ring in and threads be created as the news fleshes out, unless there is a general consensus on merging, or Rady feels the need to merge.
fyi, Metro has moved to the following location: Far far away from the orgy that consist of clyde, 8's, rady, smokes and rono
Crazy 8's site: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
personally, i'm a huge Phil fan from back in the championship days, so whatever he brings to this organization is a step in the right direction.
Agreed, I completely stopped coming onto the website to evenread the posts after a while, not because I ran from some argument with Metro,but because all I saw was Metro and Kiya one post after another shunning themasses based on disagreements and lack of respect for others opinions; they couldn’tsee the forest through the trees, that this was a forum and the word “forum”means open discussion, not dictated discussion. I don’t know if it was boredomor sheer ego, but I got tired of it completely, I only signed on today to seewhat phil Jackson convos were going on, and of course half way through a newsthread comes the debate of kiya and metro and their attempt to plant a stakeinto the heart of knicksonline ( once the premier most favorite knicks websiteof mine and many others, not a boneyard of relics that cant get through onepage of a thread with out turning into a pissing contest between cyber bullies)ill go right back to obglobal.net as Its obvious this site will never getbetter.
And im a veteran saying this so please take heed.
It's going to take those who remain to breath life back into this place. Disagreements are welcome, but I think we're all intelligent enough to detect personal agendas when they surface and usually there isn't much tolerance for it.
I've slightly disagreed with Clyde and Rady upon my initial convos when first joining as I have with a few others but it's never gone over the top because cooler heads always prevail.
This is an opportunity for discussion hopefully contributors will add their value to itAnyway what do you guys think of Phil making potentially upwards of $15mil for the gig? Does anyone find it kind of odd J.R. Smith and Woodson are eager to talk to and work with Phil and have expressed it publicly yet Melo is being kind of cryptic and vague about what it could mean for him? Is it because Melo feels he has it like that with the organization as a whole while Woodson and Smith appear more concerned or needy because of a level of uncertainty?
Well just as I wondered we have some intel of how Melo is looking at things as they unfold. Very interesting choice of words he used as the same with Amar'e
Chris Herring @HerringWSJ 1m
Melo says he'd look forward to sitting down with Phil if and when he's hired.
Chris Herring @HerringWSJ 1m
Carmelo said he heard Phil Jackson's critiques about him before. Says he's not really sure how to respond, but that it might have ...
Chris Herring @HerringWSJ 19s
... been accurate to say that he shot too much in the past. Melo feels his game has evolved in past 2 yrs, though.
Al Iannazzone @Al_Iannazzone 15s
Amar'e on Phil Jackson: "It's been very, very top secret so far with that situation and it should be . It's a very, very touchy situation."
Okay so who txt Greg Anthony
