    Melo never made it past the conference finals (which he got to once) with all the pieces Denver surrounded him with.

    It's not entirely his fault - Amare's contract is horrendous. Imagine the Knicks with Melo, Kevin Love, and Tyson Chandler as their "big 3". That team would be 3rd best in the East if you keep the rest of the supporting cast in place and have a bright future with guys like Hardaway and Shumpert emerging. Then take Bargniani's money (you wouldn't have made that panic trade b/c you'd be stacked at the 4 and 5) and instead allocate it to upgrade PG and a 3 point sniper like Korver or Redick.

    Having $20MM a year in dead cap money is a killer.

    Melo played at SF with Denver.
    He plays PF with the knicks.

    Nuggets had NENE at center and martin and pf.
    Only guy in that roster that had any playoff experience was Chauncey billups.

    And of course they played the lakers, with a kobe in prime and gasol, Bynum before he decided to play bowling trevor ariza and a healthy Derek fisher

    And what evidence is there to suggest Love would've done better? Like I said Love has never even made the playoffs. A real "superstar" can make the playoffs with bad rosters, look at Dirk Nowitzki, he made the playoffs 11 straight years (iirc) and the best player he played with in that stretch was probably Jason Terry.

    This post is great. Hardaway and shump are the only real talent other than melo on that team. Knicks need to build like the heats and spurs. 3 point shooters that can hit 3s off the bench

    Melo is dominant as a small forward.
    I would love to see him go to a team that will use him as a small forward.

    Stay away from that shite fest and play the Grizzlies tomorrow at home v's Cleveland. Conley can d up Kyrie and the Grizz big men will penetrating pound the Cavs down low. Can't wait hoping the line is less than 6.
