The transition hasn't been the smoothest and I am not to sure Amare and Melo make the best combo. With that said this is a preview for Melo before he commits long term. Could a disappointing half-season + early playoff exit be enough for him to leave?

maybe when Nets moves to Brooklyn , to play with D-Will , but otherwise I think Amare will move sooner than him .

Amar'e would leave before Melo but neither will in the forseeable future.

Is Melo a FA this summer or did he sign an extension with the trade?

He signed an extension. 3 years plus a player option for the 4th year.

Okay. Yeah that totally changes everything I thought he was going to be FA this summer.

Ever? Maybe. Within the next 7-8 years, doubtful. He made too big a ****ing deal about wanting to be in NY so bad. He'd look like a complete moron if he tried forcing his way out anytime soon.

I've stated this on multiple occasions, but I'll do it again because this seems like an appropriate place:

Let me preface this by saying that despite being a Nets fan, I root for the Knicks to succeed; so much so that I've been called a "closet Knicks fan" by many Nets fans. Much of that comes from the fact that I'm a New Yorker, but a segment of it results from my belief that the NBA is better when the Knicks are playing well.

Having said that (Curb fans), I really think the Knicks ****ed themselves with the acquisition of Carmelo Anthony. That's not to say that D'Antoni's coaching philosophy isn't also at fault -- you're not going to win in this league unless you put an emphasis on defense -- but even with a better coach running the show I'm of the belief that the Knicks would be unable to compete with the NBA's top-tier teams.

Melo and Stat make up one of the best offensive tandems in the league, but their style of play doesn't necessarily translate to playoff success. I think the Knicks need another piece (and a change of philosophy) if they want to vie for a championship. That brings me to the Knicks' most glaring issue -- the lack of upward mobility. Although we can't necessarily predict the constraints of the new CBA down to the dot, it's fair to assume that the cap will not be significantly higher than it is now. The Knicks have two players on the books tied up for roughly $40 million (when cap holds are taking into consideration), as a result they lack the ability to marginally improve the roster (whether it be through a trade or signing free-agents). There are many delusional Knicks fans who are of the belief that they're still bringing in another max-player, but the truth of the matter is that they won't have room.

I think the Knicks are going to be like the Hawks (slightly better though); they'll compete every year, but they won't have enough to capture a championship. I hope I'm wrong, but I really don't see the Knicks reaching the finals as currently constructed. We'll see.

No team is stupid enough to give up that many quality players just for Melo.

Good post. I'm afraid of what you said, the fact that the Knicks may never become true contenders. Melo and Stoudemire take so much of the salary cap, and the CBA is going to look to restrict playoff teams from improving much.

No way in hell.

He's where he wants to be now, even if the situation isn't to his liking. He'll be running the show in New York now (along with Amare, I suppose). If there's a player-coach dispute, Melo will win. If there's a player-player dispute, Melo will win. As he already did, he will continue getting what he asks for.

Den, I value your opinion because you seem to be objective, intelligent and analytical in your assessment of all-things-NBA. Having said that, I'm curious to hear your take on a few (actually several) things that pertain to the Nuggets.

How do you feel about Carmelo Anthony's career as a Denver Nugget? What's your evaluation of Melo as a player;do you think he's underrated, overrated or properly rated?

How do you feel about the trade as a whole? Are you satisfied with what the Nuggets received? Would you do it over if I told you that Melo would sign an extension with the team? Would you have rather done the trade with the Nets? Would you rather have received Anthony Randolph than Mozgov?

How successful do you think the Nuggets can be this year in the playoffs? How do you see the team faring in the future? It's going to be hard for the Nuggets to retain all their free-agents this off-season, so how would you seed those players in terms of priority? Do you want to add someone in free-agency or keep the team similar to how it's constructed now?

Why can't the Nuggets wear the alternative dark-blue away jerseys every game?

That's a lot of questions, so if you don't answer all of them I'd completely understand. Thanks, in advance.

Wow.

Of course Melo is gonna leave. He lives in NY, he loves it here and despite the losing he still is extremely happy to be a Knick for the next FOUR years.

melo does look pretty unhappy in NY in some of those losses.

03-27-2011, 11:12 PM
To the OP ~punch in the face~ how long ago was it when the Heat did the exact same thing. They have yet to figure it out and they aren't going to do it overnight when it's the toughest time of the season to get wins. If D'antoni would grow a pair and tell Carmelo to just jack up the first open shot, rather than dribbling the ball to death into the floor. The luckiest guy out the whole trade is George Karl.

Note-Melo wont leave New York, I am just saying if it were to somehow happen, but dont hold your breath.

If Melo leaves NY he will quickly become a likable player again. But hes not going any where so all you haters can keep hating.

D'Antoni will be the first to leave, the guy is a terrible coach

I'm not a fan of him but it's not all his fault but he will be the scape goat, he can't help they traded away all of their depth for one player.

Punk
03-27-2011, 11:46 PM
Lol Wow seriously? It's not gonna happen. Stop it please. If the Heat went on a 7-8 start and a 6 game losing streak and there was no threads on "Will LeBron leave Miami?" and now all of a sudden there is one on Melo? Funny how that works out.

Is it his fault the coach likes putting him in the game 5 minutes in the 4th? Out of every 4th quarter meltdown, he puts him in at the 5/6 minute mark when the game is already out of hand.

We all know D'antoni will be gone soon enough if this doesn't improve drastically. I'd trust Melo's words if he calls this streak as a "humbling and challenging experience"

It's not like we went 0-20 since the trade. The potential is there, we know how good we can be in wins against Miami, Atlanta and the blowout win against Utah. Playing consistent 48 minutes is the only problem.

Every other recent loss is just depression and lack of confidence. Amare is just not doing his part right now either.

It's not as bad as people want to make it out to be.
