Melo is the only reason we're 23-12. Without him we would be .500 if not even worse.
He did a stupid thing,so what ? He lost us one game,he won us all the others.

And I don't get why tonight we should see a performance of his life ? This game isn't all that important. I would understand if you said it for a playoff game but for a Knicks-Bulls regular season game with the Knicks being 23-12...I don't get it.

But it all comes down to #7.

Getting tossed, bitching about calls, getting himself suspended does not help the team.

The team follows Carmelo Anthony, they were built strictly around him.

7 games missed, 9 techs, 1 suspension.

Blame the role players all you want, feel free to dodge the elephant in the room.

This team will go as far as Melo takes it.
So win he wins us games, give him the credit! He missed games because he got injured. Pretty harsh injuries too. Going hard to the rack and getting taken out by one of the strongest players in the league. Diving into the stands for a loose ball and having a center fall into his knee and hyperextending it. You'll have to forgive me if I don't think that should supersede the fact that he's an MVP candidate and the 2nd leading scorer in the league.

Meanwhile, mum is the word when Chandler stinks it up as well as Kidd. When Chandler plays well, he "had a Dwight Howard performance" but when he stinks it up..."oh he's just a role player anyway." Yea well he doesn't get paid like a role player. So just how you like to bring up Melo's salary, I'm going to continue to bring up Chandler's because Melo has earned his salary far better than Chandler has. You keep saying "Kidd's role" but he was brought in to be the backup pg. The starting pg went down. That's what the backup pg does....replace the starter.... and he's not doing it well.

I KNEW losing Felton was going to be a huge problem. All that Kidd leadership and what not has nothing to do with production.I love the rah rah locker room stuff but at some point you have to do something tangible.

Melo's having his worst game of the season by far. Poor defense. Struggling offensively. He doesn't look there mentally.

Jr is struggling offensively too but at least he's battling.

Bro you are killing me over this Chandler thing. This is getting crazy. Every post is about Chandler sucking it means nothing. The Knicks wont win or lose based on Chandler because he is dependent on others to get him the rock. Let it go.

If you dont double the Knicks they will struggle. If you dont have anyone to create shots for role players they will struggle. If you have no one pentrating or require double teams in the post then they will struggle.

I can understand scoring 36 points against the great Bulls defense but allowing them 57 points in a half is simply unacceptable.

Knicks about to be 5-8 in their last 13.

My issue isn't Chandler. It's people giving him and Kidd and the credit when we win but then when he stinks it up, then it's "oh he's a role player". That's hypocritical. It's the same sh!t I heard every game with Jared Jeffries. "O he's a huge factor because he does all the little things." Then he stinks it up and it's everyone else's fault. What's he doing right now by the way?

Come on fam, get out here with this.

melo is playing like a child that got spanked by his mommy.

John Starks game 7 type shit, this aint Chandler or Kidd fault.

Meanwhile the guy he is supposed to guard looks like Jordan tonite, and btw Luol is guarding him PERFECTLY.

This is all on Melo, he needs to take some time off and go find himself.

Even worse, Chandler didn't have this game circled, Melo did.

Sometime talk is cheap.

*See quote where I said this is Melo's worst game*

And once again. Melo is ONE person. If that's the case, when Melo goes out... why isn't Tyson Chandler taking over? This is "all on Melo" but when we win...it's not all because of him. That's hypocritical man. Be consistent. That's all Im saying. That's why we never keep stars in NYV. Because when we win, it's the "because of the role players" and when we lose it's because of King, Ewing, Marbury, Melo etc. We run our players out of town and guys like Jared Jeffries and Charles Oakley become beloved.

You can't be serious. Dude. I respect your opinion but you sound a bit silly. The guy has been playing at an MVP level and we're going to rip him because of TWO BAD GAMES? How soon we forget 2 games ago he had 40. 4 games ago...45. Stop it dog. Just stop it. Who cares if he had the game circled. He had a bad game....and is STILL outplaying Chandler!

Bull...the team IS built around Melo.

Tyson isn't expected to be Dwight.

Kidd isn't expected to be Chris Paul.

Melo is expected to put up MVP stats and carry the team to a win, yet is clearly mentally phucked up.

He's gonna get his average for sure, but will he get us this win and take us where the team needs to go?

MVP's dont get suspended and lead the league in tech's.

Stop with this, the TEAM will have to have the #1 seed for Melo to have a chance at that.

Don't look now but the guy who "needs to take some time off" is heating up You cant be serious lol The guy had a bad game and a half lol But he needs to go take time off? Overreact much?


And if we are going to give Chandler and Kidd passes...fine. But can we PLEASE address Pablo Prigioni? WHAT HAS HE DONE??? NOTHING!!! He sucks! He needs to go. Everytime he comes in the game, we immediately get worse. Tonight is exhibit A
