Didn't like IT....stop playing
Crawford was a 6th man. People here knew that but the Knicks didn't. (Sound familiar)
Zbo was a damn good player once again be placed in positions where he was asked to do too much(I see a theme here).
We won that Melo trade. Saying we didn't is showing the hater in you. NOBODY we traded became half the player Melo has been for us. Dude scored over 10K points in 6 seasons with us which included his half first season, the lockout season and the 17 win season where he was shut down after All-Star break. Step back and think about that. Add to that he's actually in his 6th season with us. We couldn't build around him because we made dumb moves after the trade and the player who was actually making more than him his entire tenure here was hurt more than healthy. I'm not even mad at STAT. **** happens.
You keep banging that Melo hate drum though....but then get upset when I say KP isn't an Alpha. Not that I don't like him or want to get rid of him, but because I don't think he's an Alpha...
To look back and say those players we traded became relatively nothing is the wrong analysis. They were assets at THAT TIME that could have been used to get the players around Melo you speak of. Melo wanted the money and Knick, stupidly, made the trade and gave it to him. I think if you put that proposition up for a poll, you lose. Both parties got what they deserved for being stupid heads.
