Melo's Farewell Tour--Remainder of 2013-2014 NY Knicks Thread

Recommended Posts

Thankfully, Thor performed euthanasia on last thread.

The big issue now will be whether the Knicks become the first team in NBA history to go from 50 wins to 50 losses returning same coach and top 5 scorers.

I think Melo is as good as gone, which will make some Knicks fans happy. Either way, these may be his last 23 games with the Knicks.

Rock bottom is approaching as T0m rejoices.

T0m, Knicks are 11 losses away from 50. Do you think it happens?

It'll be the 5th time they lost 50 or more in the last 9 years.

What's crazy is that since the 1976 merger, Knicks only lost 50 games or more 4 times before then.

I think the team has quit and Dolan is too stubborn to fire Woodson, so it's a death spiral right now. Please promise to live-post during the lottery.

Id say the chances of Melo leaving are about 30-70

He's a check-casher. He'll take Dolan's money, dictate who the next coach is, and happily put up 30 shots for next year's lottery team.

He'll never be happy on a lottery team when all his buds are on playoff teams.

Where do you come up with this stuff?

We'll find out a lot about him in the coming months. 

 

I really have no idea how he's valued on the open market to be honest.

I'll still post.

It only makes sense if Dolan is not trying to piss of a name coach by firing Woody.

At least you admit that.

Your claim that no one would sign him was insane.

I know he'd play somewhere....point being IDK how much he's worth to a team that's looking to win a title. Is Melo willing to be a final piece type of player? He's never had to be that. He's never really had to adjust his game. His career has always been about getting his shots.

We'll see.

If I had to bet, he'll sign with Bulls for less than max.

Pairing Dolan with Melo was destined for failure. Dolan will never cede power to a coach and he's so scared of Melo leaving he lets him do whatever he wants. Melo needs a coach that's going to challnege him. I don't know if he wants it back.

I agree with this except for last sentence.

Melo wants to win. Only dolts like T0m thinks he'll rather lose to put up shots. Thibs will push Melo and Melo will play well under him.

Yeah, I can't wait to watch Jabari Parker or Wiggins put on a Nuggets jersey. I'd be willing to bet the Knicks didn't even broach the idea of lottery-protecting the picks they shipped to Denver...

Maybe for a season, save for them winning a title in year one. Between defense, accountability, and running players into the ground, Thibs will wear on Melo quickly if they don't at least make it to the Finals.

Under "The Knicks receive" they put Carmelo, signed it and sent it back for the nuggets to fill out the rest. Steve Mills this year didn't realize you can hang up the phone and have the Clippers call you back at the trade deadline. He had a deal in place to move Shump to OKC, Clippers didn't want that. When you have a bunch of guys hired by Donald Sterling sitting in a room laughing at you on speaker phone that's beyond incompetence.

Heck, Dolan didn't know you could pull off trades before December 15.

With a healthy Rose and Melo next year, the Bulls would reach the Finals.

I still don't get how they not make that OKC trade.

Have no idea how those two would play together. Westbrook and Durant arent a match either.

Thibs will find a way.

Agree on Westbrook and KD.

Because the Clippers pretended they where trading Darren Collison, asked Steve Mills to hold and played elevator music till the deadline passed
