    This guy definitely deserves props this seasons.

    Seems to have really matured and come into this season with a different determination, playing really hard and leading on both ends.

    If he can keep this up definitely in close contention for MVP.

    Durant won't get MVP because of Westbrick.

    Knicks also looking like real darkhorses, key will be how they attempt to integrate Stoudemire, perhaps try him a few games in the starters and then the bench if not its time to let him go for anything or nothing.

    Yeah they really look good. I definitely don't think they are missing Jeremy Lin that's for sure. I've never been a big Carmello fan, I always thought he was too selfish and a horrible defender but something looks different about him this year. Let's see if they can keep it up.

    He should come off the bench.

    My fav. player in the NBA. I understand his weaknesses but he's looked great this season, hope he keeps it up - especially defensively.

    Well nobody doubts Melo's talents, its his D, bball IQ and effort to improve his game (still the same player the nuggs drafted 9 years ago) that was worrisome. Maybe all that veteran leadership coupled with Melo's maturity as a person has made him into a better player, Camby and Kidd won't let him get away with slacking on D, and Melo himself is probably starting to realize he'll never be able to reach KD/LBJ level if he keeps being a one dimensional player.

    Whatever the reason Melo's been playing like one of the best SFs in the league, and I hope he keeps it up.

    This. All we have to do is restructure both of their contracts over a 100 year period to fit them on our books.

    yup, we have some of the best pick and roll players in the league and that's stat's bread and butter.

    i wouldn't say we'd be a top 5 team in the west though...

    Noooo PHOENIX...!!

    STAT's knees are toast and his contract is still a long term commitment. He'd be a fun expiring contract pickup but nononononon foundation piece.

    like how carmelo is playing,but check out the other knicks as well. raymond felton, jr,sheed, and jk are all playing well. this team ,unless amare screws it up, is not a first round exit.

    Are you saying that he's showing the world that he's on Durant's level?

    When does Amare's contract end I'd love to take him if it ended right after 2014, it would help our team get experience in the playoffs, plus there isn't anyone worth the max this next free agency.
