It is really difficult to evaluate the Melo trade. Although he helped us make the playoffs 3 years in a row I was never a big fan of how we acquired him. I've always been one to believe that teams shouldn't make trades out of fear that the player they're targeting is going to be traded to another team. During the Walsh/Grunwald era the Knicks were so worried about what the Nets were doing that they set their franchise back for another decade through a series of desperation moves. I really hope that Dolan and the Knicks organization has learned from their past mistakes and don't trade away all of their current assets for a quick fix the way that they did years ago.
No! It's not hard to evaluate the Melo trade, the 3 times the Knicks made the playoff having Melo on the roster were done by other Knick teammates, the first playoffs Amare & Felton lead us to the playoffs, the 2nd time LinSanity lead the Knicks to the playoff, the 3rd time Jason Kidd and a group of Old-Timers lead the Knicks to the playoffs. The Melo trade was a HUGE mistake made personally by owner James Dolan .. Dolan actually gave control of the Knicks Franchise decision-making to Carmelo Anthony where Melo showed he had more power than the Knicks head-coach and the GM.
The only reason why Dolan hired Phil Jackson as president were to talk Melo into resigning with the team whom Melo said publicly at the beginning of the 2014-15 season he was not resigning to. Which were another DUM-DUM owner Dolan move !!!
Please! Stop showing videos of the Knicks beating the consistent LOTTERY Lakers !!!
