(ESPN)   Melo says he'll do whatever Phil Jackson says, in order to win. Except play D. Or stop jacking up 35 shots a night just to get his 25 points. Or play the offense as scripted instead of just freestyling   (espn.go.com) divider line 18

"Or stop jacking up 35 shots a night just to get his 25 points"

Melo has never done this. In fact, only once in his career has Melo taken 35 shots and ended up with less than 35 points. (and he had 34 that game)

Anyone who has actually watched the Knicks this year knows Carmelo is playing incredible basketball.  Don't blame Melo because everyone else on the team took a step back.

Only because Roy Williams was coaching against him in the title game. KU ought to have had Larry Brown on retainer to coach during the tournament in that era. Roy was awesome in the season, but give him trouble during a game...

Yep, and that garnered him the ESPN College Athlete of the Year AwardTM

My apologies for not being a dumbass.

Best thing he can do to help them win is re-sign for the minimum allowed, leaving cap room for free agents.

He is running the offense as scripted. There's no one else that can score on that team. It only makes sense for him to shoot a ton.

/now he isn't going to play D or pass, that part is true

I can't believe there's local sports media in Chicago that want that Tool.

The thing that scares me is that we might get him.

If by "freestyling", you mean hold the ball for 15 seconds, fake twice, then shoot a 20-foot jumper.

I remember watching the championship game on TV.  He had something like 20 and 10 -- solid numbers for college, but not eye-popping.  And that Syracuse team was pretty decent -- Gerry McNamara and Hakim Warrick would take them on another deep tournament run two or three years later.

The problem with Melo is he's a lazy piece of shiat.

Iverson needed to dominate the ball to be effective, but he worked his ass off to get a shot.  He also played decent off the ball defense.  So they surrounded him with 4 workhorses who played great D and rebounded, and it worked well for a few years.

Melo is obviously lazy on D, but he's also lazy on offense.  There's no reason why only 28% of his shots should be taken from in the paint.  Lebron shoots about half of his shots in the paint.

Standing 18' out doing jab steps is not an efficient offense.  It takes the life out of your whole team.
