    I really think Joe Johnson is worth that if they use him correctly.

    If a player is worth top 6 money he should make himself be used correctly. Joe Johnson can never be worth top 6 money.

    Carmelo puts up his number and is 100x more consistent scorer than joe Johnson is. Joe Johnson has a team as well, Melo is just with a horrible team.

    No way. Melo just doesn't know how to play WITH a team. And in all actuality, the nets suck. Terrible coaching. Coaching can make a great player appear mediocre. Case in point; when Pau Gasol was with the grizzlies.

    I would probably have highlighted Melo before JJ. Melo is the ultimate self serving player in the game, a cancer for winning basketball or good team chemistry.

    Why do so many people overlook the defensive side of the game(Melo vs JJohnson there lol) I am glad people underestimate the impact of great D play as one of my biggest gambling philosophies is to focus on that side of things. The past Superbowl another classic example of Manning hype pushing the spread upward, despite going against the best secondary ever assembled to counter modern pass offenses.

    Easily guy is also one of the greatest defenders to play the game. Oh I forgot, defense isn't really that important, but sloppy stat horders like Melo can boast and show off his cancerous offensive production to high pay days and endorsement contracts.

    And Melo doesnt have terrible coaching and teammates? You replace him with Joe Johnson and they're in the running for a top 3 pick...and this is coming from a nets fan.
    This pretty much sums up the knicks:

    Don't give me that. Melo has had some good teams. He just chooses to outshine the team.

    And joe johnson hasnt been on some good teams?

    Do u just watch highlights of him hitting game winners? Thats the only way i could come with up someone thinking:

    A) He's worth more than 'Melo (who just for the record, i agree is overpaid).

    And more importantly

    B) He could actually be worth that terrible contract.
