B. The Melo trade was not Melo's fault. AT ALL. It was Dolan who made that trade. So to blame Melo is ridiculous. Melo wanted the trade but everyone knew we could get him in FA, like you said. The problem was DOLAN, the person who made the trade. And Melo didn't get D'Antoni fired. D'Antoni got D'Antoni fired. The Knicks weren't winning w/ D'Antoni so you can stop that nonsense. We started winning during Linsanity but that was it. Other than that, D'Antoni was awful, even worse than Woodson. And now look at D'Antoni. Kobe wants him fired...wonder why?smh122 said:A. Saying Melo not happen means you are under the belief he'll stay because......?
B. Melo isnt the reason NY is bad? Since when? If NY simply signed Melo in the summer, they could've kept their team somewhat intact. Instead, shipped out integral parts of the team, then Melo's issues with D'Antoni(the guy who had the style of players he needed for his system to succeed, which they were doing) got him out of there which lead to NY patching together a team of veteran cast offs and overpriced players, with a subpar coach in Woodson has lead them here: A sunk ship
A. He loves NY. He grew up a Knicks fan. Plus, he'll get plenty of money. Phil Jackson is here now. 2015 cap space. Amar'e and Tyson both can be traded in the offseason because at that point, they'll have one year left, so teams will be willing to take them to make 2015 cap space.
And may I ask why you are blaming Melo for that trade?
