The lack of blame for Melo on the situation is RIDICULOUS.
The typical bandwagon blame everything on Melo is PITIFUL
You don’t like how it turned out? Blame the front office for once instead of caping for this garbage franchise
First of all...I blame Melo for what Melo does/did and the FO for what they did. Always.
Too bad some Knicks fans care more about Melo than the team to do the same. If you think Me7o cared about anything more than top dollar and top dog here you're mistaken. His actions prove that. His actions cost us players/assets/coaches that compounded the FO mistakes and somewhat handcuffed the team.
It goes BOTH ways. Melo is gone. The FO has churned over 4 times since that trade. The HC...5 times. The roster...continuously. Why does this board have to re-hash this "discussion" over and over with half blaming Melo and half blaming the FO and almost no one placing blame where it belongs? Both sides were wrong.
Put it this way. The team made mistakes. Melo made selfish demands. Both hurt the team multiple times. The end. Move on.
Let's not forget...Me7o forced the trade for money...Not to play for the Knicks. He stayed for money. Not caring about how we could build a team around him.
True or false - we got Felton back
True or false - we would of had to waive WC to sign Melo
True or false - the so called amazing wing players we sent out have missed over 400+ games combined during Melo’s tenure here
True or false - we had cap space one year as a playoff team
True or false - we signed a top FA that year
True or false - we used the amnesty instead of opting out on Billups
True or false - we used our one asset left on one of the biggest busts in recent NBA history
This has nothing to do with putting Melo over the team. It has everything to do with Knicks fans who continue to defend this garbage organization despite their many many MANY failures and refuse to accept their fault in this situation.
Same garbage excuses every time. “No one wanted to play with him”. Really? We had cap space when we were good???!!
