Classic KneeJerk reaction thread. Wait til the series is over before jumping th gun. If we win tomorrow and Melo has a good game you'll be MIA
* ONE GAME * and already the Melo rants rain down on the forums.... i mean just last week Melo was so amazing to you all, now "he's exposed" lmao.
I remember these threads just like it was yesterday
" Melo is ball hogging well never make it to the playoffs with him TRADE TRADE TRADE"
" Knicks vs nuggets (NUGGETS WIN) "we should of kept gallo he's a real winner this game just exposed Melo, he's not a franchise player"
" Melo sits out vs Miami heat game during the season due to injury..... "MELO SUCKS HE"S NOT A LEADER HE"S EXPOSED"
Im not going to lie alot of "KNICK FANS" just like to jump on whoever is beasting at the moments DICK, I live in New York iv'e witnessed this stuff alllll season long. AMARE WAS GOD TO ALOT OF KNICKS FANS, MELO gets traded here then Stat is a nobody, LIN ARRIVED and all of a sudden this man is worshiped like he just fed every hungry child in America.
Why would you even make this thread
1. it's not supportive
2. your jumping the gun
3. WE JUST GOT BLOWN OUT BY THE HEAT NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR THIS RIGHT NOW, If your going to say something right now at least it can be something supportive... what happens if Melo goes out and dominates the rest of the series??? "OMG MELO IS THE BEST EVER THREAD"?
lol im done, thats like saying Dirk nowitzki was exposed when he missed his FT vs the HEAT in 2006... let me guess "you thought he was a choker and would never win a championship"...
ANYONE WITH EYES knows Lebron is a better overall player than Carmelo, maybe not a better shooter but his overall game dominates Melo's in every way shape and form, although Melo is still a better rebound'er IMO. have faith and stop wetting your pants and jumping to conclusions after one game... when were down 0-3 yeah then you can hit the panic button.
Obviously Carmelo was missing because him and Amar'e can't co-exist. When Lin comes back both of them should DNP'd.

Guys calling it a knee-jerk reaction might be in denial about the severity of yesterday's ass-whooping.
It's one thing to drop game 1 by 10 points, even 15. But by 33? To be so thoroughly dominated after the way Melo finished the regular season?
It's not called knee-jerk, it's called Reality.
This is what we have coaches for, we go to the tapes see what we did wrong & try to work out the kinks. The heat did their homework and they were prepared. Now we have to do our homework and comeback twice as hard as they came at us. Nobody said this was going to be a peace of cake series, we just have to figure out what works for us on the court. Maybe the passes to Melo have to be adjusted, maybe the spacing has to be adjusted. If anyone can make this work Woodson can, if anything that blowout just made us stronger.
"yes it was a horrible disgusting massacre"
Yea, it definitely was. And it was dramatically juxtaposed to the hype surrounding this team going into the playoffs. I think the way it went down blew the socks off of even the most ardent supporters.
"If anyone can make this work Woodson can,..."
If anyone CAN'T make it work, it's Woodson! Woody is a coach with a terrible playoffs history and a large part of this history is his inability to make any sort of meaningful adjustment over a series.
I do believe you're joking with me. Or you're a lunatic! (I mean that in the friendliest way possible)
Your judging one mans (melo) abilities based off one game. Amare wasn't out there doing jack $hit, so wheres your Amare threads???????? Are they at the corner of "im slurping up melo right now" because thats the only player you seem have to saw struggling on the court??? if you aint notice LEBRON OUTSCORED OUR WHOLE TEAM NOT JUST CARMELO ANTHONY
This would of been more Legit if, the heat were up 3-0 cmon now the series just began, and you already have doubts
You feel Melo exposed his self and we wont get anywhere this series ok cool... your entitled to your own opinion, but if we do win the series i want this thread sticky and i want you to see it everyday
i wouldn't exactly say woodson is a terrible playoff coach, yeah the magic swept the Hawks (if im not mistaken) and yeah woody couldn't seem to escape the second... so that makes him a horrible playoff coach now? there are some coaches who cant get pass the FIRST ROUND, let alone the second round. Woodson is the same coach who took the piece of $hit 13 win club Hawks of 2005 and turned them into a 53 win club in 2010... i wouldn't judge his coaching just yet.
Ill take woodsons successful winning season as headcoach of the knicks going into the playoff's over Dantoni's failing record and lack of coaching...
Last time Woodson coached during playoffs, after winning 4-3 the first round:
#2 Magic vs #3 Hawks
Game 1, Hawks lost by 43
Game 2, Hawks lost by 14
Game 3, Hawks lost by 30
Game 4, Hawks Lost by 14
This series marked as the most lopsided four-game sweep in NBA playoffs record. And marked the end of Woodson tenure with the Hawks!
2009 Playoffs, after winning 4-3 first round:
#1 Cavaliers (w/LeBron) vs #4 Hawks
Game 1 Hawks lost by 27
Game 2 Hawks lost by 20
Game 3 Hawks lost by 15
Game 4 Hawks won by 10
I seriously hope Woodson isn't trying to break his own record, for most lopsided playoffs sweep.
Edit: Woodson is a great regular season coach, no question about it. But as a playoff coach, he is the worst, for his inability to adjust during the game and throughout the series. Coaches adjust for the playoffs, but not him. He is just downright stubborn as a mule!

It amazes me how quickly people jump ship!
And, the bottom line is even if the Knicks lose
against the Heat, they still played some great
games this season under coach Mike Woodson.
"Winner of the coveted "Chink in the Armor" award!"
Even though this thread is a joke, the only thing that got exposed was Mike Woodson.
This game reeked eerily similar to that Hawks series against Orlando.
Hoping the result is different though.
