It's the usual suspects, Melo and JR, they are the two guys that dominate the culture of the team now.
But that just highlights the problem with the roster, the fact that we are even talking about something like this tells me that we are not in a good situation. I mean, when jealousy is a real concern, there's something wrong.
The fact remains there's always going to be jealousy inside a lockerroom. I think bringing in Jason Kidd was a huge move for the Knicks to provide some good veteran leadership (well on the basketball court cuz he's obviously got issues of his own to deal with outside of the lockerroom), because Tyson Chandler could not do it all on his own. STAT & Melo both need to grow up & learn how to be teammates & be able to put their egos aside for the good of the team. This is what Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce & Ray Allen did in Boston & it's what Lebron, Wade & Bosh did in Miami. Both teams won a championship. The Knicks have not yet figured this out.
Lin's contract would have added just another issue for them to squabble about internally. It could be better for us that he left, as difficult a pill as it is to swallow right now. Eventually I just get the feeling that the constant media attention being focused solely on Lin whenever the Knicks won would have become an even bigger issue down the road.

it's all about styles and preferences among fans of different styles and eras etc.
other dudes need to stop with the race crap,
criticizing an asian player like Lin is not being racist if it's objective,
and the same thing goes for criticizing a black player like Melo,
come on NYK fans, yous are smarter than that
Isn't a Supserstar...LOL He was when he scored 50 pts on Knicks in Denver..but we crying for Lin that wasn't gonna put same results in NON MIke Pringles Dantio system... Melo All-Star...Most fear Scorer in the league..Here a Hint..Most GIfted Scorers Don't LOCK DOWN on Defense that why you Build around his scoring...MJ had Pippen...Magic had Cooper.. Isiah had DUmars.... that the recipe...Non of those team built around LImited Guard ...Melo will be fine the Key is Stat to be healthy n get on DAMN BOX and BOX Out...
No need to hate on Melo. His playoff record speaks for him. He will forever be a loser. He will never win anything with his selfish iso ball.
I think with Kidd around, Melo will play a lot like in the Olympics, moving without the ball to get easy scoring opps. Though in crunch time, you will see a lot of iso clear outs. It's the way of the league now. You just hope he has enough gas in a possession to possession type ball game. Kidd helped Dirk reinvent his game, from an Avery back to the basket, where triples basically called it a game, to an offensive game that had more flare, where he was a threat any where across half court.
Come on, shake your body, baby Do the conga I know you can't control yourself any longer Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger Don't you fight it till you've tried it Do the conga beat
Everybody gather 'round now Let your body feel the heat Don't you worry if you can't dance lLet the music move your feet It's the rhythm of the island And like sugarcane, so sweet If you want to do the conga yYou've got to listen to the beat
I dare say that someone who purposely registered on a Knicks site just to badmouth a basketball player, is the type of person that would fit the profile of 'forever being a loser'.
