Am I overeacting to tonight's loss....maybe.....but the fact remains what Melo brings to the table is not what these Knicks need!
But about tonight's game, how many times did you hear Mike Breen and Walt talk about the offense becoming stagnent and of those times how many times was those on possessions where Melo was in the game?
How many times did you hear Mike and Walt state "that is not a good shot at all from Carmelo"
The dude clogs up the offense.
Carmelo is not a leader!!!!! He needs to be on a team with an established core of players and veteren leadership because he is not going to bring that himself.
For a "superstar player" he makes a lot of dumb plays on both ends on the floor
Potential trades for Melo
Lakers give up Bynum and Odom for Melo
Portland give up Camby and Wallace
Clippers give up Kaman and Eric Gordon
and yes cap nerds I do realize this deals dont all matchup salary wise and woudl need more players thrown in.
But all of these deals round out our roster better than having Melo.
all of those starting 5's are significantly better than what we have now and allow for Stat to become the leader with a good cast of players around him.
trade this dude this off season before he no longer has trade value!!!!
