Let's take out Melo....
 
You can replace him with any other player in the league except Lebron. Who could replace him and do better and why?

I heard this on the radio last week. It's purely hypothetical and I could come up with none. Your not adding any other players to this hypothetical it's solely a one for one swap.

Only other player for me would be Durant.

Why Durantula?

Actually on the radio they excluded LBJ and Durant but I didnt. I don't see what he can do to clearly make this team better.

He's the league's golden boy. Knicks would be camping at the free throw line for most of the night,just like OKC does.

There would be no more "refs damaged us" complaints :lol

So FT's translates into making this team better.

I did catch the joke.

Well he scores almost as well as Melo and he's about 4 years younger.

He plays off the ball better and doesn't freeze out his team mates.

melo gets abused by the refs, the whole knicks team gets abused by them actually...i personally didnt think that JR deserved a flagrant 2, that play looked like a hard foul more than anything...and lets try and get some help for melo next season...he cant do it alone, lebrons got wade and bosh, durants got westbrook and ibalka/martin, melos got, JR and felton??...thats laughable

we need to snatch one of those big contracts teams are unable to keep due to cap , anything is better than an always injured amare

This thread is not a get help to melo thread. This thread is for anyone that feels another player can do better with this team than Melo.

If someone else takes Melo's place they could do better as the centerpiece. Who are these people that would make the Knicks better as this team is presently constructed.

I see that people are saying Durantula but I dont see where anyone is saying anything substantial that says that Durantuala would help this team more. It cant be the extra couple of points or the extra FT's that would make this team better by his addition.

Are there any other players that people feel could do better with this team than Melo?

Melo's strength is putting up points, so there is a host of players whom when given 20 shots a game could easily put up 28 with better efficiency.

His rebounds are comparable to his position, and his assists are average.

Durant, Harden, Steph, Curry, Westbrook, Kyrie, Kobe, Wade just to name a few.

The only reason why i put Durant first is because no matter how people view him, the dude can score.

And he has ref respect to draw fouls and such comes in handy as well.

I dont care about versatility in scoring, a play could have one move only but if they are elite in scoring that way, i take that....put the ball through the hoop more than you miss.

I also picked those guys because they do more on the court consistently than just scoring.

So Durant, Harden, Steph, Curry, Westbrook, Kyrie, Kobe, Wade can do better with this team. Interesting. So I'm curious is this significantly better?

The team would not miss a beat, and yes the team imo would be better.

4 of those players are arguably better than Melo now (Durant, Harden, Kobe, Wade, and all are more complete.

I specifically named guys who are ungardable such as Melo, and guys who can naturally makes plays for teammates and are known for continuous effort.

Totally irrelevant to this thread. This is about NO Melo and I am asking about what other players would you take instead of Melo that would make this team better....
