I know we're all excited. So am I. It's a breath of fresh air to not only get some wins but finally have some solid pg play.
Let's keep things in perspective though. Only two of the 5 teams we've beat have winning records and Utah is on a losing streak.
We still have plenty of holes on this team. I think it's ignorant that some of us are parading around boasting that we don't need Melo and Amare. The regular season and the playoffs are 2 totally different beast. Only team that won a ring w/o at least one elite player is the Pistons, and that's partially because Kobe and Shaq were feuding.
End of the day, with all the talk of Melo and Amare needing to get us involved, the supporting cast needs to get them involved too. Theyve singlehandedly won us games despite terrible play from our supporting cast. We aren't winning any playoff series with just Jeremy Lin. Sorry to burst some people's bubbles. We need ALL hands on deck. We need our stars to play like stars and our supporting cast to support. We need to have the coaches, front office, stars, supporting casts and even the fans with the common goal of gettin our Knicks on the right track. Last thing we need are some bandwagon Knicks fans salivating for Melo and/or Amare to screw up so they can wait and see Lin win us a few meaningless regular season games. Let's support ALL of our Knicks!

Melo and Stat must come back and fall in line with whats going on or get benched. They have to play both ends of the floor. hold the ball for 3 seconds make quicker decisions pass/shoot/attack the rim.
The Knicks wont win in the playoffs without Melo and Stat on board.
As much as you say want to say the 36 million dollar players single handily won a few games for the Knicks they didnt make the team better. Thats a reality check!
If the Knicks are going to do anything in the playoffs though these guys has to play at a high level!
