I know Im stating the obvious... but Chandler and Amare never were or  have not been the supporting cast Melo needs. 


What package would it take to get Kyrie to NY! Look at how Melo is with an amazing penetrating PG! 



Chandler, Felton, Shump any future Picks... for Irving and Anderson V.

Then Package Amare and Beno to LA for Gasol and Nick Young


http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=n6gvb5g



Starters: Irving, Hardaway, Jr Smith, Melo, Gasol


Bench: Prigs, Young, Tyler, KMart, Anderson V, MWP, Bargs. 


Financially this makes sense for everyone and besides the Horrible Bargniani contract.. we should be a top 3 in the east for the next 5 years and secured Melo!

Melo needs to put Dolans' feet to the fire. Demand that a competent basketball executive be brought in here to run the team or he is outta here. I can't believe Melo sees what goes on with upper management and thinks this is the place where he has the best chance to win. If he does then the guy is as clueless as the owner.

Carmelo needs a real good point that not only can manage a team and pass but can hit a shot as well when things break down. Then some guys that play good defense, big guys that rebound and block shots and timmy jr  that's all!!!!!!!!!!!

quite honestly...this crowd SUCKS...wow.  


The end of the 3 point contest: no applause

The dunk contest: no applause or excitment

Allstar game...very little.

Hope LeBron doesn't go back to Cleveland. that would be a tough team with Irving and LBJ.

Can't believe that big oaf Roy Hibbert became an all-star...never woulda guessed that future for him when he was drafted...

@OLDKNICK  Don' forget a competent coach; although with everything you mentioned Woodson would transform into competent coach...lol

@OLDKNICK  simply needs someone that will suck in the defense away from Melo so he can get open shots.  Same problem that Novak had.  There was never any need to get off of him (though that meant a slightly more open lane) because his defender just stays with him.  Same thing with Melo.

@OLDKNICK  Yup. Find a couple of Battier type players...guys that play defense and can knock down an open three on a consistent basis.

@OLDKNICK  It's like the only people who can't figure this out are the ones in the Knicks' front office, lol

@Jaime  What is there to cheer about? Everything has been done already. Nothing new, nothing exciting. The whole thing is played out.

@StraightShot  He's only averaging 11pts 7.7 reb shooting 46% from the field. He is averaging 2.5 blks but i'm sorry; guy is not an AllStar.

5 of those 8.8 rebs are actually tips to other players. Chandler would probably has the second lowest rebound total for a Center (B.Lopez) if tips where not included. Melo actually grabs the ball for a possession.

who cares what Melo is doing? only Melo....wins we want wins,melo cannot produce wins...

@Kiyan Carter  Not anymore. Carmelo 8.6 reb, Chandler 8.8reb. Still hell of a rebounding year for Melo if he keeps it up.

@Kiyan Carter  

Look at what Durant is doing without Westbrook.  

Look what Dirk did without a #2 (win a championship).  

Look at Lebron did without a #2 (make it to the Finals).  

Look at Goran Dragic without a #2 (team is 30-21).  In the Western Conference.  He11, he doesn't even have a #1


Now don't go twisting this like I'm saying "Dragic is better than Melo" (common on TKB).  I'm saying that it's about the team.  Even the great Kevin Durant is winning ALL by himself.  Melo never deserves all the credit, and never deserves all the blame.  It's a team sport.

@Kiyan Carter  

In a weak eastern conference, what is Melo doing right now?  Worrying about making the playoffs.


Don't say Melo won against the Spurs "by himself".  He's not losing "by himself" this season either.  Teams win, and teams lose.  Grunwald put together a sh1tty team surrounding him.

@StraightShot @buddhabing  Don't get me wrong; i'm not saying the guy is garbage. He's a nice role player. But to elevate him to All Star status with those numbers is embarrassing. His teammate Stephenson deserved it more than him.

@buddhabing @StraightShot  

I agree with you, honestly...I still refuse to believe Hibbert is as good as they're making him out to be...he is mediocre on offense.  Defensively he is a force but right now the officials are a bit lenient with his verticality ...

@StraightShot @buddhabing  I hear ya but Drummond is averaging 13pts, 13 reb and shooting 66% from the field. Jefferson is averaging 21pts 11reb and shooting 49% from the field. Hibbert is one of the most overrated players in the league in my opinion.

@buddhabing  

Even though it's an individual award, some feel that the better teams automatically "deserve" to have more representatives at the all-star game (I disagree with this)

@Kiyan Carter  Drummond is having a better year. So is Al Jefferson.
