    What do you mean in Denver?. Melo is just a scorer period point blank. Nothing wrong with that. As for being a cancer, I'm 100% sure you just made that up for shock value. But like I said before, peoples REAL problem with Melo is he's simply not Lebron. It's similar with Kobe and MJ. Kobe won 5 rings and is the closest thing we've seen to MJ, but fans real hatred for Kobe is due to their obsession with MJ. "How dare this guy be Jordan like, you'll NEVER be Michael Jordan". If you remove Lebron from the equation, Melo is a very, very, good NBA player on some bad teams. Denver sucks and NY sucks

    George Karl is not the most reliable source but...

    George Karl --

    And we are not exactly Lin sympathizers here... but D'Antoni has some credibility in these circles

    You completely fail at amateur psychology. Kobe was Kobe and there were a multitude of reasons to dislike him. MJ had little or nothing to do with it.

    Same for Melo. I was the leader of his bandwagon for many years until running out of excuses. Playing for a sorry franchise like the Knicks doesn't inoculate him from harsh criticism.

    Michael Jordan had a gambling problem and once punched his teammate in the face in practice. Lebron's been a diva his whole career, then gets his coach fired only to have management hire his "friend" Tyronn Lue. Yet we dislike Kobe? Every player has a "multitude" of reasons not to like them, what you said means absolutely nothing lol

    George Karl is currently banned from the league and trying to sell a book. The same guy who attributed his players practice work ethic to them not having fathers. Yea he's a idiot

    What about D'Antoni who was harsh in his criticism of Carmelo as well?

    Stephen A. just now: Knicks are strongly considering getting rid of Carmelo Anthony, buying him out. If they do that, Carmelo Anthony will probably join the Los Angeles Clippers. It's not done. It's something they're considering.

    PJ will go down as one of the worst GMs of all time, maybe worse than Isiah Thomas.
