Carmelo Anthony will never get a Championship ring.

My favorite sport is basketball and my favorite team are the NYKnicks.

The day that NYKnicks traded away Gallo, WChandler, Moscov, and Felton for Carmelo Anthony the first thing that I said was:  "NYKnicks will never win a championship with Carmelo Anthony."  Carmelo Anthony is exactly the same player as Allen Iverson.  He's a type of player that requires the coach and every player to be adjusting to him.  The isolation offense requires that Carmelo to be over 65% in FG percentage and the paint to be completely empty.  Carmelo can kill anyone playing 1on1 basketball because he's big, tricky and skillful.  However, NBA is a team game.  Carmelo would waste most of his energy playing 82 season games but when playoff comes, he's not going to have the energy or strength to make the quantum leap.  Carmelo's game does not allow a 2nd scorer to be consistent night in and night out.  The 2nd scorer gets less touches, plays out of position, and will be stagnant most of the time.

I hated NYKnicks the day they traded for Melo.  I hated the team more when D'Antoni was to blame for the Knicks woe.  Grunwald and Dolan should be slapped around.  If Knicks were going to pick and roll and fast break offense, stick with players to surface around Amare, Gallo, and Felton.

Allen Iverson SINGLE HANDILY took the 2001 Sixers to the NBA Finals and won game 1 as a double-digit dog.

Melo hasn't.

Melo is a very nice player. 25ppg career avg to go along with 6 rbs, 3 assists and a steal per game. Thats not too bad. He is also said to have gotten in good shape since his Knicks early exit this playoff season. Its been 9 years in the league for him. He has reached his cieling for sure and soon it will be timt to come down. The bad news for him is that the Knicks are stuck in the same conference as the powerhouse Miami Heat, which do not seem to have any glaring holes and should be contending for championships for years to come. In additon, his sidekick Amare, is not the right fit to go alongside Melo, who would thrive alongside a PG such as Deron Williams. Melo will not lead a team to a title. The only chance he has is later in his career when he signs with a contending team and chases a r ing riding the pine. He will never be "the man" in his career.

A basketball black hole-could the Knicks be daring and trade Carmelo? Its going to be a long time before carmelo is self-aware enough to realize he's a second option at best.

Knicks have a solid team as long as they stay healthy. He will follow the same career as sir Charles....always competitive but always a better team out there. The only way he will win is taking a pay cut and playing third or fourth fiddle

Im also an avid Knicks fan and I hate to agree but I dont think they will win a ring with Melo either. He is a 1on1 type of player. And to get to a Finals, let alone win one, you have to have a good wingman and Amare is not that. Glad to see them bring back Felton, I just hope Melo lets him be the great PG that he is. Woodson is really gonna do some good things with the Knicks. He is a defensive monster and knows how to make his team score. If Melo can sacrifice atleast 25% of his touches a game, we may have a shot to go deep in the playoffs this year.

I don't Think he's Like Allen Iverson At Least AI took a team and carried them to the NBA Finals against The Empire the Lakers with Kobe and Shaq in there Prime Yeah He did win Game 1 but lost the last 4 but at Least he took his team to the Finals and has won all lot of playoff games.Carmelo Hasn't even got out of the 1st Round What a JOKE.Carmelo will not get to the NBA FINALS with Miami and the BIG 3 Bulls with a Healthy Derick Rose and Philly getting Better Boston Celtics,I don't Think he has the Best team in New York The Nets got all lot Better.They got Lopez Humphries,JJ,Wallace,Deron Williams they look GOOD. Amare and his Knees he won't be Healthy this Year This guy messed his Knees up so bad he has No Hang Time.
