thats not melo's fault cuz denver knew he wasn't gunna sign the extension so they decided to trade him instead of letting him walk 4 free. stop trying to pin everything on melo *Pete Aricio* this is like the 10th melo hating question u posted we get it, ur not a melo fan but if ur truly a knick fan stop criticizing melo and just hope he plays at the level we need him 2 to win that chip.
Shut the F**K up @Pete Aricio
1.First of all both of yall agreed we would be better off if he did sign afterwards! 2.We could've gotten Melo as a F.A. and had a bomb team last year!Unfortunately Melo makes me dislike him! We gave up too much for his greed! As I recall he wanted the trade to NY before the rules change to allow him to sign a contract above the now Max deal per year. That in fact destroys our team finances! We couldve kept Gallo,Ray Felton, and wilson Chandler plus Mosgov! Added Melo, and if the same scenario played itself out with J.Lin we could've been in a better position to offer him a contract before Houston and avoided alot of hate! Now if Melo can do what he sometimes does, play Team ball and defense, instead of Melo me ball, we can still go far. I just do not like his wax figure achievement, selfish play, and talking down J.Lin's contract when his own contract was more important to him then being on a winning TEAM!Yet he did definitely say beforehand he wanted to play in NY for the Knicks! That part I liked! I thought George Karl was just a jealous hater and was mad he couldn't get Melo to submit to him or make the team better with Melo their for whatever reason! I now believe Karl is a smart man, and was frustrated with Melo's me first style of play and I am the man attitude! D'antoni knew it! He is gone! J.Lin saw it and was trying to help he is gone!The thing I feel they had in common was no respect from Melo!STAT is the man! He came to NY and actually made the team better while shining! AND HE CAME BEFORE ANYONE ELSE! Now thank goodness STAT has not been shipped out! And they will not bounce Tyson either! I think this is why they added players like Kidd,Camby and Thomas to help Melo get it and he has to respect them! If not I will expect a lot of trade requests or Knicks ballers may be hitting more than fire extinguisher cases in our locker room! 3.I do not blame everything on Melo, I am simply venting my displeasure with him and the team because of him! And listing factual reasons why!True his attitude and play have swayed me from being a fan of his and I am truly dissapointed about that cause he looks damn good putting it in the bucket! BUT we need to be winners and champions more than a star who can score!I AS A LIFELONG KNICKERBOCKER FAN HAVE THE RIGHT TO CRITICIZE! 5.@O_Buckz I do hope that he plays at the level we need him 2 to win that chip. I am just very skeptical at this point! Yes he forced the trade from Denver I am well aware of that! But the fact is the Knicks knew he was coming here and were afraid if they didn't get him he may have signed with whoever Denver traded him to before free agency. They got held up and should have just said no thanks to the trade! Then if Melo signed with us anyways it would have made him a little less money but earned him a lot more respect with NY fans! I hope he proves to be a better player for the team this year then he has ever shown in his entire NBA career so far! If not he will just add to his LEGACY in my mind as a failure at the highest level! {SHUMP IS THE TRUTH!}
pete is a damn spam acct. dude is annoying get off melo sack bruh..go cheer for brooklyn wit that shit ...knicks all damn day.. and he didnt wanna wait cuz he didnt know what the new cba would hold..he wanted to lock into contract so he wouldnt be affected.
Pay the man! Even if.. we paid Melo Less.. it wouldnt matter.. Star players aren't cheap!
he said he wanted to go to the knicks the nuggets traded him so u cant blame he {melo is da truth}

Dolan wanted him here and made it happen. He would have signed with the Nets because of the cba if the Knicks would not have signed him. The I love waxmelo choice do not make sense.
Melo thought he was on his way to NJ...he said it himself. Denver was not going to let Melo walk without getting something in return. I doubt you will ever see a Shaq/Orlando situation in the NBA again.
Some of you guys are the media and the fans who brings bad taste to the game even when you don't understand it. It's all about logistics and timing. Just like we opt not to sign Lin we could have done the same with Melo but he's one of the best in the league. So is Stat. We got arguably two of the best players in the league... you guys would have probably said the same things right now if we had gotten LBJ and Chris Bosh that said year!!!
I don't care how we got Melo I'm just glad he came to the NY Knicks.
they was gonna trade him any way nets if knicks didn't win that season
