Kershaw dude, you're so wrong. Did you watch this game? Did you watch the Boston series? Carmelo isn't getting stifled by good defense, he's stifling himself.

He's playing horrible, but have to give the other team credit too.

I could see why George Karl was frustrated coaching him, to the point he has given up on him. This team would've been so much better if Lebron chose the Knicks.

You can say that, but their is only one ball to go around and JR and Melo are selfish Amar'e would just be worthless. If Amar'e was on the court with JR and Melo on the bench, then we might have something going.

You wonder if the Knicks ever practiced how to run an offense or move without the ball.

Long gone are freebie points from the free throw with players like Houston and Sprewell, huh?

Melo and JR went a combined 14 for 43 from the field today.

I can think of 10 players I would rather have than Melo. Easily.

This is why Melo never went past the 2nd round in his career. It really stinks Lebron rejected the Knicks offer.

Really? Name them.

And relax people, it wasn't going to be our year anyways. Hopefully some deadweight (Chandler, Amare, Smith) is moved out so we can sign a true franchise player in Paul. Stay patient.

This offense needs to run through Raymond 80% of the time. The other 20% JR and 'Melo can **** around as they please, but this bull**** iso ball absolutely ruins the Knicks.

Give the ball to Raymond.

Felton can't do anything now other than shoot bricks now that Hibbert is in the paint. Chandler is useless offensively when he can't run pick n roll with Felton. Felton will retort to shooting bricks, I'd rather have Smith and Melo shooting due to their high reward.

I love Felton, but I think his play is very unsustainable. Teams live and die by their star shooters and that's gonna happen with the Knicks and Anthony.

First off Chandler is dead weight? He's one of the top defensive players in the league and a true center. HARDLY would be considered dead weight. As for the 10 players.

LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Love, Derrick Rose, Dwayne Wade, Rajon Rondo, Kyrie Irving, Kobe Bryant.

There's a bunch of Centers too, but since we have Chandler they are kind of useless.

James, Paul, Durant, Rose, Wade, and Irving ill give you, but a soon to be retiring Kove over Melo in his prime? Love would be redundant on this roster, and Rondo doesn't score enough.

Stephen Curry and Derron Williams are 2 other guys I'd take over Melo. That's 8 not counting Kobe and Love. Similar player but because of his position I'd take Westbrook over Melo too. Then there's Dwight Howard.

Also those thinking that Boston was a tougher match up than Pacers will be pleasantly surprised. Pacers are one of the best defensive teams in NBA.

Melo is an elite scorer,thats it.He doesnt make his teammates better like a Rondo or a Paul do

Let the bashing commence...

Pacers are around 10.

Indiana conceded 91 points a game in regular season. Only Grizzlies at 89 a game were better. Bulls were at 93 a game. Pacers belongs with your top-3. Cant believe how underrated Pacers are.

Melo is a great scorer, but last game was an example of how his points have been inflated due to his selfishness. He went 10 for 28. Shot under 40%. By no means a terrific performance and he still scored 27 points, about his season average.

Curry & Griffin are NOT great defenders. Stop!

Also, Griffin is overrated. I don't want to hear about his dunks. He is NOT a better offensive play than Carmelo Anthony.

The poster you replied to never said Griffin was a better offensive player then Melo.Try reading what someone posts next time when you reply to them,its not hard.

Curry and Griffin arent great defenders,but they are still much better then Melo and are much better team players.

I don't care about basketball but wouldn't mind Knicks doing well. Look like they'll win/lose the series vs the Pacers?
