That **** went so much deeper than Melo. He’s gone now. Same ****, different day.
It will still be his fault, guaranteed.
People love stats until it doesn’t fit an agenda. The Knicks have had a garbage defense 14 of the last 15 years.
The one year we were good? Tyson was here...with Melo. Woody was our coach.
Or they only use stats & ignore all context.
If Melo stayed, they'd be able to see just how devastating having a traffic cone at PG is to your team defense. Now, when we will look better on that end because Frank & Baker will get a lot of minutes at PG, they'll attribute it to Melo no longer being on the floor and ignore the DRose aspect.
Melo sucked on D, but nonstop PG penetration will kill you every time.
