    Folks, the nightmare is over. Be thankful that there is a new man in charge - Phil Jackson. Yes, he won a lot of rings, but what I like most is his link to Red Holzman and the "old" Knicks. That...

    Folks, Larry Brown is irrelevant. Woodson is finally gone. Knick fans have something to get excited about with the advent of Jackson. Maybe ... just maybe, Knick fans will finally have a team that...

    Melo is an outstanding offensive player. The problem is he does not know how to win. The solution is simply a new coach and a smart PG with game. Woodson is gone. That immediately makes Melo and...

    The title of this thread is appropriate in the sense that you cannot have Melo as the leader of a championship team. He simply does not have the smarts or the focus to compete at that level. He can...

    Analogies are nice, but what happens with the Spurs has no bearing on the Knicks other than an example of a smart NBA program - i.e., how to do it right. No one is saying Melo is not an outstanding...

    Stupid people tend to do stupid things. The Kicks have a stupid coach and a less than bright star in Melo. A bad combination. So the consequence is you get that the sequence you had last night in...

    You are allowed to love Melo. He is truly an outstanding basketball player, but he has not shown the smarts at any point to suggest he really knows how to win. Oh, I believe he wants to win, but...

    I totally agree with this sentiment. You simply cannot build a championship team around, or on, a player like Melo in this organization - i.e., with this coach. Melo is an unbelievable shooter...

    Guys, stop listening to the the know nothings pontificating about baseball or any other sport - especially the NY Post. It is not a real newspaper. Listen to what Collins is saying. He is trying...

    Guys, this is a fine moment for the Knicks. Ignore the naysayers like Lupica. Little man, with little equipment who has forgotten what joy and happiness is. He should retire.

    Finally a smart...

    Araton's piece in yesterday's NY Times referenced a close associate of Jackson's saying that the players who best understood the triangle in Chicago were Rodman and Kerr. Guess we can rule-out...

    Let's get a few things straight...

    First of all, the trade for Melo was unbelievably stupid. He was going to be a free agent. That means exactly what it says - free as in no compensation. Thus...

    The owner - i.e., the guy paying the bills - always has a final say. The question is the degree of interference. I have to assume that Jackson will only come aboard in a situation he is comfortable...

    Guys, instead of seeing the advantages of Jackson taking over basketball operations for the Knicks, there are all these "knowing" pessimists crawling out from under some rock who want to tell you why...

    Folks, let's just ignore the naysayers. The decision by Dolan to at least meet with Phil suggests that he is serious about trying to put a truly competitive team in the Garden - i.e., one that has a...

    Guys, there is a little bit if truth in everything being said. On one hand, you do have to throw to build-up arm strength. On the other hand, throwing too much can very possibly lead to arm...

    There are several nice proposals on this thread. The above by KnicksFan4Years seems closer to realistic. But they all seem to echo Isola's column, today, that it is time to move on from Melo.

    Syndergaard obviously has the "potential" to be outstanding. But let's keep things in perspective. He has only pitched two innings in spring training.

    KnickFanSince91, you are certainly allowed to love Melo, if you wish. That is your right. But watch a game closely and note what you see. Monday's game against the Pistons captured the essence of...

    Insights are good. Both Chandler and Melo are overrated, but each gets a pass from one constituency or another. Love Szczerbiak, but it gets old listening to how Melo is carrying the team. Watch a...

    Agree.

    The article in today's NY Times got it right. Basically the team needs a strong personality to run the team. Melo is an outstanding shooter, but he really does not play defense, does not...

    You have it just about right Fredette might be an okay addition - backup SG - to a more well-rounded team, bit not here. Who does he replace? JR? Hardaway? Better you give Murry a shot. You need...

    Last night was another example of what is wrong with this team. Melo has another great game, but does not come through in the end and the Knicks lose again. Sound familiar?

    First, Melo is an...

    I am reaching the same point. Just too frustrating watching this team keep doing dumb game after game.

    Example: Love Hardaway, but he has no clue on defense. Clearly no one is working with him. ...

    You have almost captured the entire futility of this Melo experiment. You are totally right about Woodson. He cannot coach a championship team. Clearly showed that in play-offs against Indiana. ...
