If Walsh had his way, NYK would have acquired Melo, kept Mozgov & made a run at Chris Paul. But Dolan, upset over losing LeBron, blinked 1st
Donnie wanted Carmelo but he was not about to trade every asset for him. Jim Dolan took over and got robbed by then Denver GM Masai Ujiri.
Berman of the Post's revisionist nonsense regarding Donnie Walsh's role in the Carmelo deal & the story behind Walsh leaving NYK is fiction.
Ralph Sampson, D. Robinson, Duncan, LeBron, Melo, CP3, Blake Griffin and D. Lillard all swept Rookie of the Month award. Wiggins on track.

In the 7 games he's played since Carmelo last played, Cleanthony Early is 10-for-44 shooting - over last 6 he's 0-for-13 from 3-point range.
This McCoy trade is the NBA equivalent of "Melo for Good Young Center On Rookie Deal," right?

Maryland frosh Melo Trimble told me: We’re just going to go in there & show everybody why we’re going to be a national championship team.”
If Jim Dolan buys the Daily News will he get upset over posting Knicks record since the Melo trade? (It's really Timofey Mosgov trade now)

Fisher on Melo: "We need to have him around just to continue to establish the type of leadership he'll need to continue to step into."
Jahlil Okafor, Duke Kelly Oubre Jr., Kansas D'Angelo Russell, Ohio State Karl-Anthony Towns, UK Melo Trimble, Maryland Justise Winslow,Duke
If James Dolan buys the Daily News I'll be first in line to ask him for a raise. If Melo makes $25 million & Phil $12, I can make $3, right?

Josh Selby brought back the Melo's 1.5: http://t.co/vbEja7zOS3
I saw a bunch of DUDES early this season following Monmouth. Melo Trimble might've been the best. 19, 5 assists, 4 boards vs. Michigan today
The Knicks won their first game of the season without Carmelo Anthony tonight. They were 0-16 minus Melo.
Knicks bust an eight-gm losing streak to beat Pistons, 121-115. With the win, NY earns its first win without Carmelo. Now 1-16 in those gms.
Melo can be very stubborn offensively, but to say that he didn't change anything abt his game at all these past few yrs isn't true.
Battier has often talked abt his approach in guarding Melo. But Melo did kinda drop 50 on him. Twice. Not sure his scouting always worked

D'Antoni is asked if Melo, as a ball-stopper, was his "worst nightmare." MDA: “They're doing great things with therapy. I’m good."
