2. Dantoni didn't really fit with Melo
3. The east is weaker after you get past Miami, Boston, and Indy (Granger isn't right).
Melo can defiantly lead this team IMO. We can make fun of their age, but Kurt, Sheed, and Camby have pride and some level of competitiveness. I think them in a locker room with Kidd and Tyson will have the other members of that team ready and fired up.
I also think Melo is more than good enough. He did it in Denver, with a tougher conference, in a tougher division, and with constant injuries to his starting bigs. I think people are severely under selling the guy especially since he will have a regular and not condensed season, and unlike last year isn't coming out of the camp/preseason hurt
If you put the Nuggets and Cavs in different conferences during those years Melo could've been in the finals and LeBronm the won being swept or beat yearly in the postseason by Tim and Kobe led teams

how you feeling about that contract now New York. It was insane to pay that guy so much money...
2000/2001 - Western Conference Finals
2001/2002 - The Rebuild Is On. Post Stockton & Malone Era
does not affect my fantasy team so happy cos i chose kris kardashian over him.
LETS GO HEAT
Too much money for too long on an UNINSURED contract.
I do feel bad for the guy. I honestly believe he thought he'd be good for the entire contract.
We'll see when he comes back, but I'm rooting for him (despite the little voice in my head screaming "Beware Phoenix... 3-4 years TOPS!").
It'll be interesting if Sheed starts.
It's crazy how we're only a 1.5 seasons removed from Amare getting MVP chants and worshiped at the Garden. It seems like we only know him for the injuries, bad play and massive contract.

Folks, it's 6 weeks.... we don't watch real basketball until February anyways. Stop it with all this writing Stat off crap. YES, he is not the player from his PHX days; YES he is probrably the top 5 worst defender in the league. But he can score and still has plenty of morale-wrecking dunks to dish out. Yes I'm talking to you Mr. KG, Mr. Bosh & Heat center:_(insert name)___.
In case y'all forgot.... Boom Shackalacka!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iqc1MNA3GZ0
Let's enjoy the upcoming season. Living in La La Land w/ the LakeShow and Clips, and now my online feeds of Knicks games, I know I will.

I think we will be fine, we have some depth at PF
I just love LOLing at how bad the Knicks are in terms of basketball and decision making. They ran Isaiah Thomas out of town which was well warranted but they keep making horrible personnel decision, such as Amare and Melo, who might be the most overrated player in the NBA.
