We are already the highest scoring offense but one of the lower defense teams and your idea is to bring in more offense.


    Melo is sometimes a black hole on offense, Remember the Nuggets vs Knicks game how many times did Clyde say he ain't passing that up and Melo shot jumper after jumper. I even watched a few games on league pass this guy goes iso mode and keeps his head towards the rim no passes.


    Damn son I would love the Day people think for themselves and stop letting the media tell them what to think.







    We don't need no Melo. The crazy thing is a lot of people lobbying for Melo where saying Yellow Mellow and few months back. That sound familiar.

    Go check metro's old thread and you'll see. Damn everyone just follows what ever player espn says we need

    Yes your right I did call him Yellow Melo some months back. And I haven't been shy about pointing out his weaknesses. He aint my fav player, not even close. I haven't been shy bout that. But he would help us A LOT. I'm just trying to be rational. You should try it.

    It's not rational to say a scorer like Melo wouldn't help a team that likes to outscore people.. Our already prolificly effective scoring would reach uber effective status overnight almost. To me it's silly to deny that he wouldn't help us. Just like it's silly for you to think Ellis > Melo You just sound dumb.

Carmelo though is a much better all around player than Ellis. Rebounds at a higher rate, creates for others, AND scores the ball well. Like Rono said, Melo took a mediocre team to 50+ wins and the playoffs by himself. If Melo is a man of his word he waits it out till FAgency or forces Denver to deal him to NY at the deadline for pennies on the dollar so we can keep most of our lineup intact. If Melo is there and can be had at a reasonable price you go out and get him. For all we know the DLee deal over the summer may at one time have included Ellis but, I'm wagering a bet here that their GM valued him higher than his true value when you break down his game and stats and Donnie passed.
    thankyou man!

    If you make a list of the Top-10 Best Small Forwards in the league this season you get something like that:

    LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Paul Pierce, CARMELO ANTHONY, Lamar Odom, Rudy Gay, Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, Danny Granger and Michael Beasley.

    If you make a list of the Top-10 Forwards it has to be similar to:

    LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudamire, Kevin Durant, Pau Gasol, Paul Pierce, CARMELO ANTHONY, Kevin Garnett, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love (yeah, i keep out Tim Duncan)

    And if you make a list of the Top-10 overall you get:

    LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Amare Stoudamire, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul, Pau Gasol and Deron Williams. Right behind them there is just 3 players who could enter that list. Their names are Paul Pierce, Derrick Rose and... CARMELO ANTHONY. That's how good he is.

    So a forward who can score from the post and beyond the arc almost at will, create his own shots, who's clutch, a good rebounder and defender and has strong leadership in a winning team is not enough for you to be considered among the best? Good to know.

    WE DON'T NEED MELO

    I'm partial to Melo waiting it out and if he really want to come here he can in the offseason. What did he do tonight though?

    10 boards. That's something Ellis couldn't bring with his 6'3" rail thin frame. We have a 6'10" guy with a similar body type that was supposed to be ferocious on the glass and blocking shots and what has he been doing? The East plays a different kind of ball and we all know it. Aside from the Lakers out west who legitimately has firepower and big bodies to throw at a team? Melo has the body type to succeed here with his slashing and rebounding. He can take more beating driving his way in and getting the contact. Ellis would break down quicker out here. Ellis has missed, MISSED 90 games. That's a season plus a first round playoff series. Melo has missed 64 in his years in the league. Both those number don't include current seasons. Some of the games Melo sat out were late in the season after Denver had clenched a playoff berth or the birth of his first child and not due to illness or inability to play. Almost all of Ellis' games were due to illness/inability to play. Even out west he is not as durable as Melo. All of these things need to be factored in if you are going to say Melo is a lesser player than Ellis. I can understand some of your points but you also need to see both sides of it.

    I have seen Melo play in person and have had league pass for a number of years. There are things he does that Ellis simply cannot. His height is also a factor. His ability to be a tougher matchup at his position due to long limbs and a few extra inches more than the prototypical average height for a player of his position.

    Not when he's 33, not as good as he used to be, and helped by the fact that his team his loaded. **** all Bumston Smelldicks.

    Paul Pierce is freaking awesome. He's gets underrated alot of times but he's not better than Melo right now. Not at 33.

    If they were both the same age and I had to choose one, i'm taking PP all day.

    Carmelo > Ellis... not even close

    As for the MeloDrama, I am sick of it and Denver's wishy-washy front office. I hope the Nets overpay and nobody takes Denver seriously after this. While I believe we do need a second star down the line, Denver is asking for too damn much and the nyets seem hellbent to get themselves somebody to headline their move to Brooklyn.

    While I don't buy all the hype and understand that Denver is really just trying to get more out of the Knicks this way, I am not the team with the 10-26 record in a 2nd rate city so F**k Denver if they want to play hard ball and waste everybody's time.

    While anyone would love to have a talent like Melo on their team, we are overloaded at SF. Whats worse is our major need down low as Turiaf showed us last night how good we can be when we get production on the glass as he was able to hold Pryzbilla and Aldridge to only 1 offensive rebound in the second half. Knicks #1 priority must be to get a starting center who can compliment STAT's game and run the pick n' roll with Felton.

    I know you hate this Toons, but I still think we'd be a lot better w Paul than we are w Felton. Still think we could add him. Donnie's was smart to only sign Felt for 2 yrs.

    W Paul, we'd be contenders RIGHT NOW. Sry for getting off topic.
    the new jersey nets are maaaaybe the 8th seed with melo. the rest of their team is so horrible rono....thats all im saying. If the nets had melo now, the 2010 knicks could beat them with lee, chandler and gallo. we beat the nuggets, a better team, with lee chandler and gallo....all im sayin. that is not a playoff team.

I was just being realistic about it. If he goes to the Nets which i doubt, they will be a contender. Avery Johnson is a good coach and carmelo will attract tallent. Its as simple as dat bra.
    Im a carmelo hater? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHHAHA

    My facebook profile pic is melo in a knicks jersey you dummy.
    All i have been doing is supporting the melo trade.
    war threads have been made for me and rono going head to head vying for melo and CP3 respectively.
    No poster here would ever call Toons a melo hater.
    I provided facts for intangible stats, and leadership qualities for this man, so before you go and embarrass yourself talkin ****.

    for the record, im too old to fight....i buss shots.
    you talk a lot of ****, without any facts or articles to back it up.
    i posted the stats of all new jersey nets to be in the trade.
    wilson chandler, landry fields, and amare board better than brooke lopez. the nets suck, and they will not be contenders with melo, billups and rip hamilton.

    my nuts *****......hop off

    His own head coach as well. Yesterday NBA TV or ESPN (sorry don't remember which it was a late night broadcast) was speaking to Avery and was asked what he wants and without missing a beat he said "I want my center to get 10 rebounds". Gotta love the faith your team has in you when they go so public with their distaste for your talents or lack their of.
