JR isn't "in the conversation" for 6th man either, he's the clear favorite.
we lost a lot of close games during that "horrible stretch" of .500 ball. most playoff teams in the east have been playing .500 ball all year yet you guys were scared to play them as if they were clearly better than us.
is melo still a poorly conditioned me first fat loser? haaaaaa knickstape ya bish

Can't believe people wanted Melo gone. He was far from the problem.
Eli: "You actually caught a pass!"
The diffrence isn't just Melo, its also JR Smith playing like he did to start the yr, when he was clear cut 6th man of yr canadite, to totally losing that for about a 3month stretch, to now playing like that again.. Melo can't do it by himself, and even with his monster games latley, we'd still be losing without JR Smiths monster contributions...
And as far as Melo's concerned, hes playing outta this world, and i hope he keeps it up.. And as long as melos playing like this, who could say anything but hes a beast? The problem is, its not always like this...
i honestly think it's a combination of the media and mike breen brainwashing people. last year the team struggled and it was all melo's fault. lin emerges and the team wins 6 straight! omg 6? wowsers (most against bad teams). lin and amare get hurt and what happens? do we tank and fall out of the playoffs? nope. melo goes beast mode in april and the team finishes 18-6. yet the media never gave him any credit for getting them into the playoffs.
melo is a goddamn stud. i don't mind the haters anymore either because they must be miserable. i can understand fans of other teams bashing melo, but if you're a knicks fan how can you not embrace melo? the guy is jordan-esque when he's cooking.
If anything, this is the reason i was so critical, becasue u'd have to be a moron to not know what this teams capable of and to except 21-21 from them...
