Herb Williams will turn Melo into a beast on D...
Now I do believe he has the potential but it all starts with Melo. He has to have the hunger and take a note from Gallo and ask to guard the best player of the other squad.

We know that he CAN. Carmelo can lock down LeBron if he wants to...he just has to make that conscious choice.
The part of Gallo guarding the opponents best player is highly subjective, because he may have asked for it, but he didn't do it as much as folks make it seem.
Not to mention the Knicks as a whole just seem to lose their man a lot. Our pick and roll defense is also terrible.
Work on those two things and the Knicks will be a decent team defensively.
