ps; the Clippy's just signed Josh Smith 


Now CP3 is going to be setting up Blake, DJ, Craw, Smith, Pierce, Lance Stevenson...Woodson and Doc are going to have fun with all that crazy talent..and a lot of crazy.

If Anthony isn’t able to lead this team and at least ensure they compete for a lower playoff seed (which should be relatively in the Eastern Conference),

Should be relatively WHAT ? Should be relatively easy ? Should be relatively difficult now that there are 6 or 7 decent teams in the East ? Should be relatively easy to find a freaking high school student to proofread this before I publish it ? RELATIVELY WHAT ?

That's not what alas means, unless it is regrettable that Melo and Dad are on the same page. Did Isola write that?

Go Knicks

Sheeesh.. We are long overdue for some material that gets us excited about this team aand its potential.

? Who knew the Hawks would be the number 1seed in the east last year and turn in 60dubs??...Who knew Cle would be in the Finals in Brons first year back..w/o Kevin n Kyrie being on the court??...or the Spurs eliminated in the first round??..If you told me the Bucks with no Jabari would make the playoffs..I would have asked you who's your dealer!!

Point is no one knows what the hell the season is gonna bring. But before it does at least be optimistic that the NyK can develop some great chemistry and compete with the NBA's elite.

There is no way Melo lasts the length of his contract a Knick.

@demetra *Breaking* "Melo hasn't received a hand written letter from Phil in 2 months." 


These stories are inflammatory, negative garbage.

All of this is a figment of Frank Isola's imagination. 


Nothing to see here. Carry on.

@Dan Alleva It was Araton's piece in the NY Times today and Real GM had the rumor before Isola commented on it.

As for Melo, the guy has been in the league a long time, he knows what he's getting with the FA's and I guess he's not artificially excited enough to gush over them.  Completely understandable and human.

Trying to understand why "there is good reason to believe Melo isn't thrilled with the signings? Maybe you heard something,new?

"Seemingly they are better than the cast they trotted out most of last year...?  Seemingly really ?


Maybe take Thursdays off.  Recharge.

@hosket I guess Melo was expecting them to be A LOT BETTER than last year's team. 

You can argue that last year's team had more talent than this one, of course that talent was often injured, confused, stoned etc..but man for man I think they had more talent, just misdirected.

Reporters begging for clicks

Did Larry bird and Paul George text when Hibbert and west left?

Thought so.... new York is the only reason this is even an article

@donche Hibbert probably sent Bird a photo of his plane ticket to LA

There is no respect for what Anthony does around here. He is an amazing talent that cant just be replaced. I think phil has put the kind of team around Anthony that he can suceed with especially if what the kids are doing in summer league can cross over to season. I think this is a top 4 team in east this season.

Top 4 team in the east? Wow. I'd take that bet. That would be quite a jump from where they were last season. .500 seems like a more realistic goal. I'd love to be wrong, but.....

@Kenneth Combs Agreed Kenneth. I'm thinking of saving all this negative BS and when the Knicks end up making the playoffs THIS SEASON, randomly reposting some of the most negative and ridiculous hater posts I've seen.

The handwriting's on the wall.  Melo's days here are numbered.  Thankfully.

This is probably overblown due to the general shortage of basketball news this time of year. Phil and Melo aren't dating, for God's sake. Who cares about who texted who, or didn't? I figure that if the team doesn't at least appear to have playoff hopes when the season gets under way, Melo will demand a trade come the deadline in February. I'm almost wishing that happens.

the soap opera continues...... much ado over nothing. who cares? who really cares what anthony thinks? i don't really think anyone cares about the relationship between p jack and m anth. are they going to go out to dinner tomorrow nite? where are they going? have they texted recently? have they talked recently? really guys i know its a barren time for news but you guys need to come up with better filler then this....last time i checked c anth is under contract and making much much more money than he has shown he is worth. coming off a major injury and his weak ALL AROUND performance included i would say that c anth is much more of a liability to the ny knicks then he is worth. i think p jack's salary dwarfs in comparison to c anth. and i think that p jack will have a much much greater impact on the future of the knicks than c anth will thats for sure. one thing is for sure c anth couldn't  bring in a free agent recruit if his salary depended on it.

@blackwood1 was he worth his contract last year? i rest my case. if anthony was so concerned about winning why did he sign here? and if he wanted to win here why did he not take less money to leave more cap room. the world is zoo sick of anthony complaining reggie freakin jackson is making 10 million less than anthony and he contributes more to his team. stats are great when you only look at the stats you want to look at. how about posting up FG percentage turnover rate and plus minus?

@petehasglu @j_spikett @blackwood1 i know he got injured yet he wanted to continue to play so he could be in the ASG. is that the makings of a TEAM player? to avoid surgery and delay rehab so he could get his BRAND in the ASG

Reggie freakin Jackson just signed an 80 million dollar deal, Kanter 70 mil but Melo is not worth his contract? Lmao that baseless hate is gonna be the death of you. 24pts/7rebs/3ast that's his stat line.

Who went to play with Malone & Stockton, Barkley in Philadelphia or KG in Minnesota? Guess they were all over rated lol.

You mean the all star game that was held in new York city? In the arena the only knick representative plays in?

So you really think Melo was the only one who wanted him to play in the game? No consideration. To how bad it would look for the Knicks to have the game on their court and not have their major star who is the only knick selected to play not appear?

Context matters.
