    Appreciating Melo

    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.

    Come on man if Amare could be out there he would. I give Amare a lot of slack but he never uses injury as an excuse.

    It's about playing with pain and tolerating injuries. Melo plays through them. Amare doesn't. The facts speak for themselves. Amare cannot play through pain. Did his injury require him to have surgery then or could he have waited until the end of the season? For Pete's sake, David Lee has a torn hip flexor and needs surgery ASAP. He put that off for betterment of the team. That's dedication!

    An injured Amare is useless for us. I would rather give him the time to heal and come back this round. What Lee has done I give him props but he's still yet to perform only played one minute last game.

    i am a melo fan. i am a knick/nugget fan, the fates chose him as the superstar i root for. i know this guy comes with a caveat but i don't care, i am confident that he can be a #1 option on a contender if he has the right pieces around him. I believe we can beat the Pacers and the Heat series will depend on our shooting and wades knee. melo is currently getting the lebron treatment and i hope we make it to the conference finals and push miami, it is time for the knicks to be properly feared and revered.

    lee played 1 minute in that game and didn't do anything, i don't know what the hell that guy is talking about. david lee apparently wasn't risking doing any more damage, amare would be if he came back too early.

    He made a lottery team into a playoff team. That pretty much sums up his achievements and i appreciate melo for that. He soaks up all the criticism he gets. The dude has thick skin. Melo is that dude.

    Are you talking about the Nuggets? Because Melo didn't make the Knicks a playoff team, Amar'e did.

    Melo is overrated, lazy, selfish, etc. and ya'll know it. The one thing I will give him right now is that he isn't like Derrick Rose. I appreciate Melo for that.

    Maybe after the fact and once hes healthy, but the ****ing dudes shoulder is popping out every game and his response after the game is "I'm not dead, I'm fine, I'll be ready on Sunday"

    How can you literally show zero appreciation to the guy who took us from where we were to where we are now?
