Default By being a bitch and not playing tonight, did Melo allow a blemish on his MVP case?

He is the best player on the team but he's certainly not carrying these guys. At the end of the year, his haters in the media will use this game against him...

Carmelo sure has as much help as anybody in the league.... if not the most, unless you think everything is a fluke...

Carmelo isn't MVP no matter what the Knicks do. LeBron and Durant are both head and shoulders above him as players and their stats clearly reflect this. The Knicks are just monstrously overachieving right now but will fall back down to earth later in the season as the wear and tear affects some of their older players.

I mean, people don't expect a team whose main impact guys are Ray Felton, 50 year old Jason Kidd, Ronnie Brewer, Tyson Chandler, and Steve Novak to be this good forever, right?

There is no way you don't give it to him if they keep up this play and have the top record

Didn't you JUST say in the game thread that it was all a fluke?

You can't have it both ways.

Nope.

He's injured. Did the Wizards not beat the Heat the other day or am I missing something? What does missing 1 game have to do with anything.

That being said when it's all said and done I don't think he's MVP.

Also, Wade is pathetic lol.

Yep. They'd win the East without Carmelo and Amare. Just watch it.


This game says more about the Heat's issues. They can't defend the 3, can't protect the rim. And the Knicks play defense. They stepped it up tonight.

Please.

The Heat's "issues" are that they are lazy against teams with mediocre talent. One can argue that they're just lazy against all teams but squeak out wins towards the end because of their overwhelming talent.

Come playoff time, the defensive issues will no longer exist. They are way better than the Knicks.

So they can defend the 3 and protect the rim?

40 year old Jason Kidd and Kurt Thomas = more help opposed to DWAYNE WADE AND CHRIS BOSH?
