He's the one that wanted to play this game so bad. And yet on national TV he makes it look like coach can't tell me what to do and f' this team. Him not me. I've been a Knicks fan before Melo, I'll be one after. But I can't defend that type of crap. Don't play if you didn't want to play or can't, have some respect and let your coach who you lobbied for know. No, Melo does what he wants.

I don't see what's wrong with fans being pissed off at players on their team. as a Nuggets fan I got to experience this same type of feeling with JR Smith and all of the dumb stuff he did.

but back on topic, Melo should have told the coach about any physical pain he had because from a fans view it just looks like he was fed up and walked off.

Cause maybe he's not a blind homer. . . It's time maybe some Knicks fans stop defending this guys every move. His teammates reaction to him just walking off says it all.

Clearly he has pride in his team by calling out the best player when he's in the wrong. It's the name on the front before the name on the back and Melo just doesn't seem to understand that.

KnickFanSince91
03-14-2013, 10:32 AM
So I guess it's cool to just ignore the part around 19 seconds right before Melo walks off where Herb says, "Just go"?

We were in the middle of a blow out, he was laboring the whole time and the coach told him to go get treatment...what do you want him to do? Thug it out so we lose by 11 instead of 23? Would that make you feel better?

First year- lost conference finals to LA
second year- lost to Utah
third year- Billups out w injury

I don't exactly think that a good PG is what is holding him back, but thems the facts.

The problems in New York are about health and depth. Age is a factor in the injuries, but of their top 6-7 guys, only Chandler is 30.

Are there other reasons the Knicks aren't going to win a title? Yes, but none of them are relevant or even apparent when you don't have your whole squad.

Trying to make this something else is trying too hard to hate Melo.

wow fans getting at player's necks

doesn't surprise me though, especially since most fans don't play sports and don't know what they are talking about, especially when it comes to injuries.

im not even a melo fan or knick fan but what i take from this is that he knows he's not performing 100% out there, that he is just hurting the team and making his injury worst, increasing the risk of having a really bad injury that would hurt his career and his team.

people need to look at the bigger picture outside their computer screen

no heart? he was injured before the game started

he is shooting poorly

he still tried to play the game, and its obvious from his limp that his knee stiffened up

yeah he has no heart for trying to play through an injury where his knee is swollen up so bad that it needs more than rest and ice, it actually needs to be drained. you are right though, he has no heart

How quickly we all forget that LeBron "quit" against the Celtics? We love to write people off with these absolute statements. "I know he'll never win a title. He's a quitter and can't lead a team." Fact is that game doesn't define his career or even this season. Last night ego got the better of him. He wanted to play hero and win in Denver in spite of the boos. He never should have played that game in the first place and we paid for it. Now we move on.

Drain the knee. Get healthy. Come back for the playoffs. If we're a 6 seed and have to play on the road against Brooklyn or Indiana then that's what we'll have to do. The playoffs are what truly change legacies. I can live with that and I still trust Melo as my franchise player.

He makes a crappy situation crappier, but I don't believe he is the crap -- if that makes any sense.

I look at it this way. I watched Melo all the time in Denver, lacked leadership, responsibility, and cohesiveness. So seeing this, with the reputation he has, he starts a game, leaves after playing ******.
1) he was selfish in the first place knowing he couldn't play
2) he quit on his team after getting embarrassed and outplayed.

If he had a different rep, maybe I wouldn't think this way.

See, we saw differently, he has been carrying us this year. Got injured, complained about injury, now we are paying for not being proactive. Tried to play with the injury, and now it looks like he quit. Take a look a little closer, he stepped off the court because of injury, not because he quit.

I give Melo a pass on wanting to come back and play but not how he left...

Guy had to have his knee drained so there's some damage there.

Did he even ask Woodson or let him know, because in the video it seems he just said something to Herb.
Judging from Jr's and other players reaction it seems he just left without telling the head coach and if that's the case then that is flat out wrong, injured or not.

How quickly we all forget that LeBron "quit" against the Celtics? We love to write people off with these absolute statements. "I know he'll never win a title. He's a quitter and can't lead a team." Fact is that game doesn't define his career or even this season. Last night ego got the better of him. He wanted to play hero and win in Denver in spite of the boos. He never should have played that game in the first place and we paid for it. Now we move on.

Drain the knee. Get healthy. Come back for the playoffs. If we're a 6 seed and have to play on the road against Brooklyn or Indiana then that's what we'll have to do. The playoffs are what truly change legacies. I can live with that and I still trust Melo as my franchise player.

Lebron Carried Cleveland for seven years, Melo couldn't carry the nuggets And now can't carry the Knicks. Plus until lebron came to Miami melo played with better players around him.

And on top of it all, he "didn't carry the nuggets"....really??

They were a lottery team that got the 3rd pick in the draft. They were BAD. Second he got there, with some good management, they instantly became a playoff team. Trust me, he was a big reason for being a playoff team. It took the best player in the league around 3 seasons to finally get his Cleveland team to the playoffs.

So please, he did carry the Nuggets. They made to being a near top team in the west, a tough, tough place. Lebron couldn't make the playoffs at first and then he guided Cleveland to the top seed and deep playoff runs IN THE EAST. Nuggets weren't getting past the Lakers of 2003-2005, Lakers 2008-2010, Spurs, etc.

I'm just saying. It was a much harder proposition. Put that Melo lead Nuggets team in the east with Lebron and he would have made the playoffs every season from the start (something Lebron didn't do) and would have had deep playoff runs.

And as someone said, guys, you're comparing him to the best player in the league. Lebron is insanely good. Even with people having MVP seasons, Lebron with a "normal" season is still a front runner for the MVP.

The only difference between what he did and what Kobe did was Kobe stayed on the bench, which I think Melo should have. I think this is being made a bigger deal than it is, it seems pretty clear to me hes talking to Herb Williams who motions him to go back to the lockeroom. Woody was in the middle of a 20 second timeout huddle, hes not going to stop the whole thing to announce hes going back to the lockeroom.

Almost nothing you said was true. Melo was like Denver's 3rd or 4th best player his rookie year.

And nobody blames Melo for failing to lead Denver, they blame him for his failure to even show up. I should know, I witnessed his invisibility live when he faced the Clippers. I've never seen a superstar locked down by such an easy gameplan. So yea you can mention whatever you want, its not just about losing to star teams, he was clamped down by a sub50 win Clippers team that had very little playoff experience. I was a huge Q-Ross fan back then but the way he got in Melo's head made me a true homer for him.

I'm sure Melo and co discussed him giving it a go in the second half and coming out if he couldn't.

Their reaction wasn't anything?

Roger Hines is even stunned. Kidd looked away, Camby looked away, JR and Shump look confused and Woodson looks visibily frustrated.

The crowd was riding him. Melo wasn't going to get treatment that night, he chose to go to the lockerroom on his own. He could have sat on the bench and waited for the game to finish. There is no treatment being done or x-rays in Denver's arena, he wasn't going to a hospital after the game either. According to the beat writers, the Knicks beat writers he wanted out of there and his teammates weren't happy which is why he's flying back to LA b/c he knows they are pissed about him and questioning his heart. You want to make excuses for him go ahead.

I'll tell you one thing we won before w/o Melo, Melo hasn't gone farther than our 99' team so don't even tell me that this is something worth it. He hasn't even gotten out of the 1st rd. Those are the Knicks fans I can't take serious.

"I hope we lose Melo and go through years of losing?" Man **** Melo! Melo ain't **** in the NBA, he hasn't won anything in the NBA level, what a scoring championship WTF cares. I respect the homie's game, but he's as big as a malcontent crybaby as there is in the sport.

Or Melo needs a star, Melo needs a PG, Melo needs a coach. This is the ingredient to continuing a mismatched roster that's going nowhere.

Ok, I'll stick with Melo, and you can go back to losing. Without him, you would not be in position to win the division. Will they? I don't know, but you sure are closer to winning it because of him than not.
Oh, and to your point about needing a PG, Felton, started off well, and is inconsistent. So if he needs another player, so be it, because our other star is hurt, and who knows how much he would've contributed. Do me a favor, go ask Lebron how much easier it is with Wade there. Or go ask, Garnett how he feels having Pierce there. It's not a excuse, it's a fact. JR has been playing well, but he is inconsistent also. So, keep bringing up Lebon, or better yet, go become Heat fans, cause there is plenty of room on that bandwagon.

Lets not forget I told you and anyone else how eversince the Roxs came to NYC, teams used their strategy to turn us into a .500 team and wear us down. It's been there, you just don't listen.



No I did it all the time.
Ok, when you mentioned all those players, Kidd can't hit the side of a barn now, Copeland was in Woodys doghouse, and JR was inconstant at times. As far who I would like to pair him up with, that guy that played for us before Melo came here, he hit midrange jumpers and was a allstar, Amare. But everyone seems to bring Melo to blame, but Amare is the one that punched a fire extinguisher last year. We wouldn't have won, but it would've been fun to watch.
And as far as you being a so called fraud, maybe you are or maybe you aren't, but these post about you complaining in the beginning of the season when we were in 1st place doesn't help prove you are a fan.

aside from Copeland being in Woody's doghouse which if you watch him play you know why. JR and Kidd are guys Melo boasted about, JR has been a bargain but again these are players Melo wanted w/ him.

Ahh yes. Sucks he's not here but what do you do? you can't make excuses.


But everyone seems to bring Melo to blame, but Amare is the one that punched a fire extinguisher last year. We wouldn't have won, but it would've been fun to watch.

People blamed Melo b/c he wanted the spotlight and didn't play up to his max ability until the players that helped or pitched in got hurt and he had the spotlight to himself. Amar'e punched a fire exstinguisher b/c here he was doing everything he could offensively to co-exist w/ Melo and it wasn't working. He got pissed he didn't see the ball enough. One thing you never questioned w/ Amar'e is what he was willing to sacrifice for the team, his defense sucked, his attitude was great, but health has kept him off that court and he's never had to adjust so much until he played w/ Carmelo Anthony. But Stat's career is over. His knees aren't like they use to be and that's something we have to deal with.

But you asked me where was I. I was here. I'm just letting you know you're wrong there. I've been calling this team for their defficencies and the smoke of their play. I've been there.

The thing I dont get about Melo is he has the ball a lot, creates A TON of attention, plays 40 minutes a night. And avgs less than 3 assists a game. To make your teamates better you pass the ball to open shooters, look at the top scorers in the league all avg around 5-6 assists a game. Melo needs to pass .

This legendary idiot troll is actually making sense now. You must be taking your vitamins and ritalin DMF...

I couldn't agree more -- Melo should be dishing 7 a night, but he likes to shoot the 3, not set it up.

Not sure you guys have seen the Knicks team outside of Melo. The only guy on that team that can consistently score is Melo. Novak is the only decent offensive role player and Chandler is the only other player beside Melo I'd want on my team.
