You can't even front, Melo is playing like straight ass this year. You would've thought he would actually be good as a catch and shoot player but his damn pride couldn't even allow him to do that.

Like I said, Dennis Smith Jr will never lead the Mavericks to the playoffs.
I'll call a truce on your players and you, except Smith. Dude is straight garbage but hey time will show the glaringly obvious for ya.

melo is getting old. you can't name a player from the 2003 draft that is still good besides lebron. so it is what it is.

i don't really give a damn how you feel about smith tbh. cause your opinion dont really matter to me. he has shown enough flashes to be good for a long time and has gotten praise by the top players and coaches around the league.

but sure ill call a truce

What does age have to do with being regulated to a catch and shoot player? If anything it should've made it easier for him. Where was the good stretch? The first week of the season?

Posting inefficient numbers is now that impressive. What are the excuses people are going to make for Melo now, there's no talent on the team? Melo's scoring numbers of course were going to go down this year, but damn where's that Olympic/Hoodie Melo at?

Here you go again.
In December and January he had really good stretches. Melo has also had a really solid 3 this year. Dude is taking less shots, is the third option and yet you’re still bothered.

Are we really at the point in which 15/6 while shooting 40% is a good stretch? You're right, January he set the world on fire. He's shooting the three the same as last year with us, with all the open looks he was supposed to have this year with Westbrook and George you would've though it would be better no? After all his problem was the talent here in New York...

I'm not bothered, dude doesn't play for the Knicks. I don't care about Melo, Lin, Gallo, Chandler etc... people need to start rooting for the Knicks instead of former Knicks. Melo is what Melo is, he's not a guy that impacts the game anymore at this stage of his career.

All these open shots?
Guess you not watching the games.
Melo is shooting the 3 better this year and since break I believe he’s at 40% from there. Dude also attempts 13 shots per game since break and like half of them are 3’s.

Salty Knick fans should keep an eye on what our garbage FO is doing instead a hoping and praying for Melo’s failure. Have you seen our squad this year?
