Avoiding getting "killed publicly" is not worth $54 million.  Again, you're living in a fantasy world.

The Knicks may cave on a trade, but they're not going to buy Melo out because that is out of Mills and Perry's hands.  That's purely a financial decision which the MSG accounts have to deal with. That's why buying Melo out was dead in the water.  That's why Phil got fired for pushing for it.

The opt-out is at least as certain not to happen. Free agency is gonna be a slaughterhouse for the players next year. He doesn't want any part of that. All the talk revolving around Anderson is pretty much a dead giveaway that the secret is out on Carmelo. He's going to play out the whole deal unless something somehow lines up with the cap for 19-20 so his expiring deal has value to a contender that everybody can pretend is his value as a player and save some face.

Poor Melo is going to miss the banana boat again, then.

At first I was outraged by this contract but the more I thought about I realized we got the steal of offseason free agency

 

THJ can ball.  The outrage was purely anti-Knicks driven.  It was a market contract and he's getting paid less than lesser players like Crabbe.

Do you think he honestly gives a sh*t? He's got the Knicks by the balls.

Yes and yes.  Yes, he gives a sh*t because he's stated repeatedly that he wants to play with LeBron, Wade and Paul.  So Team Banana Boat is important to him.  And, yes, he has the Knicks by the balls if they want to trade him because of the stupid NTC.  Thanks, Phil

JR Smith was a big reason THJ couldn't blossom here.  He clearly got a lot better in ATL

Stated wow you don't say. And repeatedly! Yeah, he'll probably leave a cool 28 on the table for what the (still basically stupid) market will bear. Because words. You seriously need to make your peace with the notion that there are two years left on this deal.

Just keep Melo and only play him 20 minutes a night so he and KP aren't on the floor together   Knicks actually have a legitimate shot at Lebron next summer when he opts out from Cleveland

We'll see what Melo does next summer. If he plays out the 2 years so be it. If he opts out you'll be wrong again and either disappear again for a protracted period of time or change your name again
