Melo spoke to the media today and said it's not up to him if the Knicks sign Lin or not.

"It's up to the organization to say that they want to match that ridiculous contract."

What is it again? 5, 5 then 15 or something.

I mean the Knicks have experience in dealing with ridiculous contracts (ask Amare).

Melo is an idiot, even if its true(which it is), you dont make a comment about another mans contract to the media.

Especially when melo himself is overpaid and forced his way to NY to get the most money possible. Dumbass.

He actually put up great numbers for years, Lin did it for half of a shortened season.

"To be clear, Melo wasn’t taking shot at Lin, he was taking a shot at Rockets for ridiculous $14.9M balloon in Year 3."

He's saying its ridiculous how he can be offered 5mil, 5mil, then 15mil. But, hey, anything to make Melo look like the bad guy right?

He may turn out to be right, but he's waaaaaaay out of line to say that. That definitely violates unspoken rules about not commenting about other players contracts. I'd point out Amar'e's bad contract but he is smart enough to remain quiet about other players situations.

Really, Melo? Really? Regardless of the context, I don't think any NBA player with an 8-figure annual salary should be allowed to use the words "ridiculous" and "contract" in the same sentence. And I was always under the impression that it was frowned upon to comment on another player's contract. Not your money, not your team, not your business. Take the word "ridiculous" out of that statement and there's nothing wrong with it. Melo should know better.

My stance on him has never changed. They wipe Melo's *** more than any baby. This guy hasn't won anything in his NBA career to merit this. They rolled out red carpets like he's some 2nd coming of Micheal freaking Jordan.

-Melo lied about tell D'Antoni about Lin

-Melo's arrival sent a whole starting lineup to Denver

-Melo tanks the start of the season

-Melo gets a coach fired

-Melo's boy, JR is here

-Melo's fav coach Woodson stays over calling Phil "I got more rings than anyone" Jackson

-Melo's coach changes the offense, why? b/c Carmelo Anthony wasn't on the top scorers list, no other Knicks player had an issue w/ Lin, but Melo wasn't scoring

-Melo and Stat have never worked on the Knicks

-Now Melo adds his 2 cents about the contract?

This guy is killing this franchise, very slowly. CANCER!

I don't think Melo meant it in a bad way, however...

A Man who makes $20M+ a year should NOT be commenting on another player's offer. In fact, NO Player should be talking about another player's contract.

Poor form. Bad etiquette.

I can't even fathom how he thought he could get by saying something like that. Was an absolute dirtbag thing to say.

That's what Melo is. People act like they can't see it, we've been seeing it. He's all about himself. And Dolan and MSG basically Grunwald, they pretty much made him the gm.

Lol Whether anyone agrees or not Melo is the star of the Knicks and face of the franchise. I bet none of Jeremy's peers think he is the face of NYK except Lin stans. I like Jeremy but I just think his potential is being overblown.

The last contract isn't even guaranteed. It's pretty much the $10 mil the first 2 years then a couple mil the last year.

Its not about whether we agree or not, everyone thinks the contract is stupid, but you dont make a comment about another players deal. Taboo.

the last year is fully guaranteed, thats one of the things the rockets changed.

Context is key when speaking on Melo's contract...

He meant the contract is ridiculous in the way its structured. The way its structured hurts the Knicks and not the Rockets.. For the Knicks is something like 5, 5, 15.. For the Rockets its 8.3/8.3/8.3.. Which is ******** and is ridiculous...

Read Carmelo's full quote.. Or watch it and see exactly what he is talking about...

Deep down Knicks fans/Carmelo fans know this guy is outta line and his reputation is just getting worse and worse by the moment. The Knicks chemistry with Lin and Amare was so much better and tney were a better team and Melo couldn't handle it. The guy is a baby/prima donna like Dwight and too many of the NBA stars. This comment was so outta line I don't even know what to think.

Considering who they had on that squad and who they played in the first round i think they did a nice job. They need to work on their defense and get some more size up front but denver's future is brighter without melo.

Agreed. The current CBA is going to bite ALOT of teams in the butt in the coming years.

7 year opt in on the CBA, 10 years if they don't renegotiate.

The Current CBA is the future decade folks. Get used to this.

Billups was/is practically done, Nene never could stay healthy. But that's besides the point. Which team in Melo's entire career he should have beaten in the playoffs?

That is pretty ****ed up. Calling out a persons livelihood, something only a real idiot/piece of **** would do. I hope he wouldn't be bothered if anyone called him out for being the least successful superstar in basketball and getting a coach fired.

The Rockets will make that contract back easy in all the overseas business, they had the cap space to kill.
