    Default If amare goes down in an injury for 20 games.....what is the knicks record?

    We need carmelo anthony
    we have no good draft picks
    melo can carry the team if amare gets the flu, twists an ankle, has any injury


    without amare and another top scorer, in 20 games this season

    knicks are

    4-16

    melo is not the point, the point is, if amare misses major time....what do you think the knicks record would be in 20 games. We are riding this guy pretty hard.

    And its not about denver, its about melo, he holds the keys in this scenario

    exactly, the way Stat is being used, we will be in deep **** if he goes down. Great teams never put themselves into that situation. Theres always a secound option to lean on until the 1st option returns to line up. Who is the next guy that will lead our team? Every championship team had 2 or more elite players, thats the winning formula. Right now The Knicks brass is just hoping the games will be entertaining enough for the fans to watch, phuck that....I want to win...I can watch a good game of BBall anywhere in this city...and I don't have to pay a grip to do so.

    If Amare miss 20 games the Knicks organization is in deep-deep trouble
    b/c Walsh will be force to make one of his stupid-ass trades which will
    cripple the Knicks with a flawed picky-picky headcoach Damnphony.
    After Walsh last 6 trades I'm afraid of another one.

    The loss to the Cavs showed us what we need the most this season,
    and it damn sure aint Carmelo Anthony.
    Varejao did not break a sweat defending Amare. Varejao locked Amare up
    better than the Heats tripple-team, plus scored 14 pts, grabbed 17 rbds,
    and blocked 4 shots commiting only 3 fouls.
    I guess Varejao learned alot from playing great ball next to teammates
    Big-Ben, Big-Z, Shaq, Jamison, and Lebron James in the frontcourt.
    I could imagine Varejao in a Knick uniform telling coach Dantoni & Amare
    to "STFU" and stick to scoring while I take care of all the rest.

    P.S. Do anyone recall what happen in the Miami Game when coach
    Damnphony finally benched both Amare & Felton in the first half of
    the game being down by 13 points in the 2nd quarter? well, PG-Toney
    Douglas got his first chance this season to show how effective his
    defense & playmaking skills work with the lineup of Fields/ Gallo/ Chandler/
    and S.Williams, end result leaded to a Knick/Heat tie score at halftime.

    This is what I've been worried about for a while, which was why I was for Trading for Melo. Now the Nets are rumored to get him, still don't completely believe he's going or staying. It is so disturbing don't even want to think Amare getting injured. People have to step up from the bench, but those are big shoes to fill.

    Without Amare the Knicks will most likely lose to any team above .500 and win half the games with the teams below it.

    We don't need Melo per say, but rather a 2nd scorer who can create his own shot.

    That doesn't necessarily mean Melo buddy, and considering his average defense, and considering he'd put us in cap hell with 2 massive contracts (look how hard Lewis was to trade, and yes I realize Amare is much better but still)...you can easily get someone like Maggette, Jackson, Ellis, Iggy, Wallace, w/e you know?

    Much much cheaper if it has to be...

    I thought about this myself and tbh idk.
    I even thought they might even go 1-19 or 0-20,but they're not that bad i'd say 2-18 would be best depending on the part of the schedule.If it's January well the 1-19 or 0-20 might be reality.

    i wouldnt say 2-18 lmao. maybe 7-13 6-12.......... def need a second scorer. melo wants to be here i hope we land him at some point. but untill then we need a second scorer asap. Its not the fact we lost to the cavs. Whenever we play a team with a good defensive BIG we are going to be in trouble. Kiyaman is so right about Varejao.

    What would happen to 90% of the teams who lose their franchise player for an extended period of time? It's obvious that we would struggle badly and probably miss the playoffs.

    Oh man That is a tough schedule, If galli and chandler or fields don't step up we're in Big trouble. This is why we need a second consistant scorer. But if not Carmelo Than who ? That's the million dollar question.

    your right in a way. but a nba team is a nba team and anyone can win on any given night. NOWAY they get just 2 wins without amare. Amare is are team. BUT 2 wins?!?!?! cmon bro. thats a tuff ass schedule but 2 wins ur the gass man of the year. its all about matchups, and when we are hitting threes we are lights out.i definetly agree on needing a second big time scorer tho.

    ^^ ya.

    What happens if Amare goes down...Walsh speed dials the Russians and asks for a mulligan, offering Chandler, AR, Fields, a 1st, a large Garden fries and a pw to a WikiLeaks mirror site for 'Melo..
