You're only supposed to switch when you HAVE to. When you get beat, when you're at a disadvantage size or speed wise, etc. An offenses #1 job is to get easy shots. One of the main ways you do that is by creating mismatches. When you switch so freely, you do that for them!

Grunwald moves:
A 3 year deal for Jason Kidd for over 3 million dollars per year = FAIL
A 3 year deal for injury prone Marcus Camby for over 4 million per year = FAIL
Re-signing Chauncey Billups then using the amnesty clause on him = FAIL
A 35 year old rookie PG with no handle = FAIL
Summer League full of known players scrubby brothers (Thompson, Smith Rivers) = FAIL
Signing a 36 year old who hasn't played in years AFTER the start of training camp= FAIL
Signing a washed up dunk contest Youtube sensation = FAIL
Cutting Ronnie Brewer for a 2nd round pick NEXT year instead of White or Thomas= FAIL
Passing up on guys like Foye, Delfino etc, who makes less than Kidd and Camby = FAIL
Giving Novak over 4 millions dollars = FAIL

If the team can't get out the first round feel free to blame the supporting cast.

Marbury 2.0 all over again.

Not at all, just not enjoying watching our star not play to the level of efficiency as the others.

Sure, there's points, but alot shots to get those points, and I'm certainly not content with 44% shooting, watching a dude that used to couldn't in LeBron now shooting 60% from the field and Durant well over 50%.

Comparing Elite players to Melo isnt fair besides their Team>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Knicks Team.

When role players cant play its more challenging for Melo to be more efficient. If you cant trust your teammates to score someone has to do it.

But as the role players get better Melo will get better.

The problem isn't that Melo can't trust his teammates to score, the problem is that if Melo doesn't get 25-30 shots a night at exactly his preferred pace and spots and style, he doesn't put up big numbers and no one thinks he's a star.

If this was last year I probably would kind of agree. But I have seen enough evidence that Melo can play enough unselfish basketball.

Where your theory holds no water is when you watch the game and he passes it the other players do nothing with it or miss quite often.

No one has stepped up to be robin. (I dont blame Stat for not demanding the ball because he has been effected by the Media constant claim that they cant play together.)

Melo had 35 and 8 last night. All this with 2 guys in the starting lineup who can't hit the ocean from boat with a beach ball. Not to mention. Prigioni and Novak aren't exactly lighting it up either.

I wonder if Kidd will start hitting threes again,at least at a decent clip. He's shooting worse than Landry Fields or Ronnie Brewer
He didn't hit a single three in 4 of the last 5 games and he's been shooting 15% in the last 10

So,let's see help Melo is getting:

Jason Kidd: 15% for three in the last 10,hasn't hit a 3-pt in 4 of the last 5 games
Iman Shumpert: Shooting 24% from the field and 26% from three in the last 10. Hasn't hit a three in 6 out of the last 7 games
Raymond Felton: 28% for three in the last 10,hasn't hit a three in 3 out of the last 6 games.

So basically Melo is playing with a bunch of guys who can't shoot to save their lives. Are we really going to blame him for taking more shots when he and all of us know his teammates are going to brick it if he passes to them ?

Guy hasn't been efficient in the last few games but he can at least score. Kidd can't score at all. Shumpert can't score at all. Felton if he does score it isn't much and it's on bad efficiency. Tyson isn't an offensive minded guy.

Melo had 35 points last night. He attacked the basket and got to the free throw line. He had 8 assists,many of them were beautiful passes to Amare for wide open dunks. I think he played very well. Not excellent but very well. Despite his 10-26 shooting.

He looked really good passing the ball to STAT last night. They need to do that more.

I agree. That would require STAT getting in the game more and not picking up stupid fouls.

Is it just me or Scooter improved as a poster ?

Before he was just trolling about Melo but now he actually has some good posts and valid points.
