It's easy to overlook all the great things Melo has done for our Knicks team. Melo has that cautious A-rod outlook in that we're waiting to pounce on his failures. I haven't truly appreciated Melo until this week. Yes, he's had a bad few games lately. Comparatively speaking tough, the dude is a pit bull. We know he's banged up. Yet he never uses that as an excuse to his bad performances. He plays injured, which is not something we can say about our other "superstar." Amare may have been the first one here, but Melo is the consummate team player. He truly wants to win for NY and won't sit out a game even if his shoulder is dislocated. Amare should pay attention and take notes.
