ESPN and every other outlet when the Knicks were 8-15 and the Nuggets 15-8 loved running the "Nuggets have been 33-12" since Melo was traded and Knicks have been "20-28" or something since Melo was traded.

Knicks are 16-16 and the Nuggets are 17-14. I haven't seen that stat run once since Lin started playing with the Knicks. It's kind of funny they don't want to run that stat both ways, because the Nuggets aren't playing well at all and that stat was shoved in everyone's face for the first part of the season.

Teams like the Nuggets, 76ers, Pacers and Jazz were way overachieving and people were making a big deal of it -- but now they are all starting to lose and teams like the Heat, Bulls, Lakers, Mavs, Spurs and Knicks are starting to gain momentum and rise to the top.

what does that have to do with anything? It was always brought up due to Melo being the big fish traded. He hasn't even played during the Knicks streak, so the point of bringing it up now is null and void. Lin wasn't part of that trade.

Not sure why you would want vindication for the way the Knicks have been playing. Nobody on the planet, including Jeremy Lin, thought much of him before Mike D realized Bibby was a corpse and put Lin in because the Knicks were slipping into nothing.

How many wins has Melo contributed to in this run lately? Come on man, I'm a Knick fan and can see what the haters are gonna start saying. This thread was a big mistake and will turn into a Melo hate fest. Good job.:rolleyes:

But you have to understand that without the Melo trade there would be no Jeremy Lin on the Knicks.

Melo trade opened up a gapping hole at center, then Knicks fixed that with Tyson Chandler, which opened up a gapping hole at point guard which made the Knicks sign him in the first place.

And then if I wanna stick to your argument. What about Denver? Gallinari is the only player of significance that is even playing for them that is from the Knicks. Chandler in China, Felton in Portland, Mozzy just started playing. minutes.

To be fair the Knicks are 10-12 with Melo and 6-4 without him including the current 6-1 Melo-less streak. So technically the argument of a team being better without Melo still holds

Jeremy Lin is of course going to get all the attention for obvious reasons...the only reason the whole "Melo W/L" hasn't been brought up recently is because of two things
1. Jeremy Lin
2. Melo hasn't contributed to the wins this past 2 weeks.

Sure, you can say the Melo trade had indirectly somehow opened it up for Lin, but at the end of the day the trade will be judged on how the Knicks play with Carmelo & how the Nuggets play without Carmelo.

That stat doesn't include Melo. The Knicks are winning because of Lin, not because of Melo. How many of those wins has Melo contributed to?

And Denver is NOT overacheiving. They are a TEAM. It would not surprise me if they made it to the WCF.

The point is, I don't get why this is even being brought up at this point, when so many of the parts that were involved in the trade aren't even playing right now. The Knicks traded a ton of mid tier talent (too much imho) to get a star who needs the right pieces around him. Kudos to the Knicks for clearing so much capspace to lure LeBron, that they were able to sign Stat, and still have space to absorb Melo by sending everything they had outbound, signing Chandler, and hitting the jackpot in a PG that nobody cared about. I am not giving that much credit to the Knicks front office on Lin, nobody knew about him. I am happy for Knicks fans they are experiencing some success finally, but I am a bit annoyed at opening the NBA forums and seeing 10 threads on the Knicks and all related things. You guys wonder why so many can't stand the Knicks fans, its because of this. Creating threads after every single positive thing that happens, looking for vindication, instead of just enjoying what is going on like a fan should.

Not bitter at all. I see the same inconsistent 30 points one night 8 points the next two nights guy. He's not that good, sorry. And I will gladly tune in the next few weeks, when Melo is averaging over 30 points per game with Lin getting him the ball in key spots. The Knicks are winning because a star PG fell in their laps, not because Melos out. Melo coming back will only make them even more dangerous.

Thats so far removed from the POINT of the trade that even if your right, it wouldn't change anything. Lin has nothing to do with Melo.



Melo trade opened up a gapping hole at center, then Knicks fixed that with Tyson Chandler, which opened up a gapping hole at point guard which made the Knicks sign him in the first place.

Yup, just like the only reason the Rockets let Lin go was because they traded for PGs, guess you can thank them for your Success.

Wait you can actually take this back further, the only reason the Knicks have Lin is because of Stern. It was his veto that prevented the Rockets from needing him. See how ridiculous this process is, the point of the Melo criticism isnt saved by Lins emergence, if anything it only makes Melo look worse.



And then if I wanna stick to your argument. What about Denver? Gallinari is the only player of significance that is even playing for them that is from the Knicks. Chandler in China, Felton in Portland, Mozzy just started playing. minutes.

Hate to say it but why did the Knicks bother going after Melo? Should of kept them guys instead of trading for Melo. Then the other cap space sign Amar. You guys would of had a more balanced team. Now its looking lame for you guys. 3 big contracts and rest are on rookie deals or vet minimum. Cant build a championship team like that! Look at Miami missed out last year. Look at the boring lousy Bucks! We are lousy but still managed to beat a ton of top teams and were still gonna have a lottery pick. This could be gravy!
