I feel the same way.

But if we're winning, I'll let it slide at times.

BTW Gallo had a knee injury, sucks for the Nuggets because I thought they were legit this year. Huge blow for them.

Yahoo says Gallo tore his ACL, brutal for them.

Knicks magic number down to 3 for the division with the Nets loss tonight, closing in on the Atlantic!

I understand and I hate the complaining and flopping as well, but they are winning and its hard to have that overlooked by issues with character.

Melo is a primadonna--probably one if the worst I've seen in a long time, and I'm convinced he wants to win for his ego alone.

But as a Knicks fan, I'm willing to overlook his shortcomings as a person if he can continue playing like an MVP rather than acting like one.

They've been so bad for so long. At this point, who cares how they win. Just win.

50 against Miami, 40 against Atlanta, 30 tonight against Milwaukee? Hopefully they don't come out soft. Take it to them and let's get 11 in a row and bring that Magic Number down to 2! Let's Go Knicks!

Melo can act like a primadonna when he wants to when he's getting ****ing hacked in the paint and not getting calls. I don't have a problem with that because NBA refs are jokes.

We might not have Tyson or KMart tonight. Looks like we might have to go small tonight.

Melo is tied for 4th in the league in FTA per game.

He would get more calls is he never complained as much. He makes such a big deal out of the slightest contact.

The refs wont call a foul on every play. Melo gets more FTA than Lebron.

Huge loss for Indiana tonight. The Knicks now have a two-game lead with two games in hand.

Tough schedule remaining.

I think we have #2 in the bag. I want to rest Melo and Smith, both are being really overplayed. Give Copeland some minutes.

Todays game will be a war. OKC wants the No. 1 seed.

And i'm sure this Knicks team wants to prove something after losing by 1 with no Carmelo.

Should be a great game.

NBA officiating is a joke. Refs basically decided not to send Melo to the line.

Melo getting fouled every time he goes to the rim. Not a single foul called. Meanwhile, the exact same things are being called against the Knicks

I want to know where those people at that said the Knicks don't get calls because they're a bad team.

Melo finally gets to the line when the Thunder force him at the end of the game
Grabbed 9 offensive rebounds
Overtakes Durant in the scoring race

Yes, it is a coincidence.

JR and Melo were playing like **** when Amar'e came back. And they continued to play like **** when he went down until a few weeks ago.

Amar'e is Copeland except three times better. Adding Amar'e to the team now makes them the only team capable of beating Miami. Three real bigs in Amar'e, Tyson and K-Mart. If Lebron doesn't enter god mode that is a nightmare for the Heat.

No one is stopping the Heat this year. We have no elite PG and our bigmen scorer is soft as butter and knees made up of mush. He is also terrible defensively and openly admitted this was his first year ever of playing defense. He is an extremely flawed ballhog type player and brings a negative loser mentality to the locker room. The Knicks should give him the Avery treatment, get lost from the team to avoid distractions. LeBron will carve us up like a pumpkin, just as he did last year.

Just hope a sucker takes on Stoudemire's contact and the Clippers continue slumping. Then fork over assets to sign a disgruntled Paul and I think we are the best team in the league next season.

Have patience, now is not the time.

What is this, Bleacher Report? "Negative loser mentality"?! You sound like Mike Francesa. Amar'e, before he got injured again, was playing fantastic basketball. You can't blame a dude who was straight balling for bringing other guys down, because he WASN'T. Fact of the matter is Carmelo hit a slump and has finally shaken that off over the last two weeks. It has nothing to do with "intangibles."

If nobody has a chance to beat the Heat this year, nobody has a chance to beat them the next few years either, so hoping we get Chris Paul isn't going to change anything. We beat the second best team in the league right now because Raymond, our subpar PG, played a FANTASTIC game with Tyson and the pick and roll.

Are the Heat favorites? Yes. Are they favorites for good reason? Absolutely. They're the best team assembled since the Shaq and Kobe Lakers.

But with Carmelo and JR playing lights out basketball and everybody else playing as they are, the Heat absolutely won't barrel over us. It'll be a hard fought series (if there is a Knicks-Heat series.) If Amar'e comes back and plays like he was before he got injured it'll be that much harder for the Heat to win.
