We predicted like a 2-8 record with Amare, Shumpert and Melo in the line-up.

At least someone tweeted Melo to let him know if he doesnt fall in line he will get some serious backlash!

I love Twitter!

Strange huh!
He should have said "Yeah I don't think I'm gonna let this yellow scrub take the spotlight. I'm gonna get all the touches and play iso. Lin can still take the ball up court if he wants."

One thing I don't like is all the bandwagon (or should I say rickshaw ) fans that have come over.

"All this stuff about me fitting in, it’s funny. I gotta tell you that. It’s funny to me.”

You can understand that as "Do you really think I'll allow this scrub to take spotlight from me ? You must be kidding. ISO all day baby "

And Amare always points out that all players need to buy into system.
Obviously he tries really hard to avoid playing defense because there isn't any in D'Antoni's system

It's official. ISO ball is back

Other quotes from Melo:

"Maybe, well not maybe, but I’ll have to score in other areas rather than just coming down posting up, iso-ing." -- Melo #Knicks

Target for Melo to play would be Fri vs NO.

It's predictable that theyre going to try pick and roll with Amare. A smart coach would throw a monkey wrench in things and run pick and roll with Lin and Melo. Now, as a defender, you have the difficult choice of chasing Lin in the trail position or having a point guard trying to guard arguably the best scorer in the game.

Yeah, the pick and roll with Amar'e never works when teams know it's coming. That's why it's consistently been one of the most stoppable plays in the league over the last 9 years. One wonders why they run it all.

Just because you know a pick and roll doesn't mean its easy to stop.
