46% is not inefficient. We are much bigger than the Heat. We should be killing them on the boards. There are more problems than Carmelo...i think he's not our biggest one.
Oh boy another melo drama thread, let it go already are we really going to make a melo thread after every game now?
yes melo is the down fall of the knicks
he's the only reason we are down 0-2
he's the only reason we dont rebound
he's the only reason we cant get defensive stops
he's the only reason nobody else on the team can hit their shot or get open
he's the reason Amare wrote "im mad at myself on his twitter page"
matter fact there's only one player on the knicks roaster and his name is Carmelo Anthony, lets completely ignore the other 14 players because however they play and whatever they do wrong on both ends of the floor is just FINE because there names aren't Carmelo Anthony.
To keep it 100, BARON DAVIS AND CARMELO are the only ones who came to play this series because i don't see not one other player on the court doing a damn thing. Bibby did OK not expecting much from him & chandler is sick so i give him a pass.
Novak threads ...Edit: Novak is a 3 point specialist making 1 mill, i expect him to have a hard time with the heat if he cant get any open shots.. so he can get a pass to
In reality we just dont have enough fire power to go up against the heat, and the injuries this team has suffered does not make our lives any easier

Man...these playoffs are really going to upset Knick fans...especially if we get swept, I can't imagine the **** we gonna read when it comes down to that.
What is all this Melo quit you speak of?? Last time i checked when Amare went down with his back injury melo stepped in played PF and helped lead us to the playoffs in the first place.
I dont know if you think Melo is superman or something, but he cant beat the heat by himself.. this is the boston series all over again Deja vu where we have our key players injured and Melo has to shoot a million shots to try and keep us in the game... only this time its against the best team in the league and he cant exploit Lebron the way he was able to exploit Pierce.
I dont see him as a quitter at all, maybe a quitter for leaving Denver to play for a team he really wanted to play for... yeah you can call him a quitter for that, I admit he Quits on some plays to have a bitchfit towards the refs for some calls.. yeah you can call him a quitter for that... i really dont see how he's a quitter any other way when did he quit on the team? i think he quit on dantoni more than quit on the team
Not giving effort = quitting.
I don't know how much easier it can get than that. The words came out of his mouth, not mine.
Edit: Not only that, you say you don't see him as a quitter. Then, in the next sentence, you list two separate incidents (besides him admitting that he quit) where you SAY he did quit. So...yeah. He's a quitter.

Which is what we now have. Just with some lingering remnants of positives that Walsh (and D'antoni) helped bring to us, and that we have a passionate and gutty, even if flawed, head coach.
Melo people, Dolan people, and Anti-D'antoni people are peas in a pod, and go hand in hand. This is all typical, James Dolan bull****....the only difference is some fans deluded themselves to deeply into thinking D'antoni was the issue, that they lost site of all perspective, and actually believed that he would leave and we would become champs overnight.
What happened to us competing against anyone right away following D'antoni leaving?
A quick historical recap:
*Walsh and D'antoni didn't want to do the Melo deal. Dolan did. We lost players Walsh and D'antoni wanted; Dolan chose Melo.
*Walsh wanted to re-assert control of his vision and the D'antoni's, Dolan resisted. Walsh left.
*Melo quits on the team and D'antoni, D'antoni after proving huge success with Melo out and a reasonable PG, implores Dolan to move accept the past mistakes (see: above) and move forward, Dolan resisted, Dolan sided with Melo and against D'antoni. D'antoni, like Walsh, leaves.
*Melo magically starts playing like Melo, despite playing in an offense that was virtually identical to what was there as D'antoni offense: centered around ball movement, players committing as a team, creating and taking lots of 3pters, and small lineups being used to great success.
People are burying their heads in the sand if they don't wanna recognize the deep probs we got, and don't wanna open their eyes to what has gone down. The excuses for Melo, the hatred for D'antoni.......whatever, it can ALL be summarized by referring to it as one thing: Dolan's Plan.
And I do half agree with what your saying about Melo, he did quit on Antoni but I let that go only because it did get Antoni outta NY. We're much better off with that scum. And since woodson came in i have to give Melo credit for showing more heart and even making more of an effort on defense. Stats the one that im f*ckin sick of but i respect your opinion and i see where your coming from
As far as what I see, Stat looks like far more of a quitter and earns a lower percentage of his paycheck then Melo. Carmelo definitely works harder on the court
We could get the 6th seed or even better if melo played defense better before woodson, then knicks could go to second round with a healthy lin back, then meet miami heat, by then knicks have more chance. Now, I dont think lin shoud come back since shump and stat are both out, no way knicks could win 4 out of 5.
I like lin, shump,novak, tyson because they give out 100% and play with heart, especially lin, that is why so many people like him, though he is not a great player, nobody say we only can like great players. He simply make all players around him play better. plus he get paid like a below average player.
This season is over for knicks, I only hope knicks can win 1 or 2 game later on , I will be very happy.
