KP has been speaking about many things all season.

First he called out his own team. Saying they play 1 on 1 too much and don't play together.
Then he called for a system to be inserted said he loved the Triangle, that they ran it more under Fisher.
Now he's upset at all the schematic changes and confusion.

Meanwhile Melo who is paid and is seen as the leader of the team is chilling, laughing, and talking about nothing important in his media interviews. Only time he talks is if he's feeling threatened or insecure about the way Phil talks about him.

It's really dysfunctional, but it's also Melo/KP. They don't work together. They are acting opposite sides of what they should be. With Melo's career winding down, he should be one putting pressure on the team for less confusion, more focus on winning and hating the losing. KP's only been here 2 years and he's so pissed off at the losing. KP's acting like the one who has a career winding down and needs to win ASAP. He's acting like a seasoned veteran who sees the losing continuing and wants it to stop ASAP. Then on the court, defensively they don't mesh. On offense, KP is slowly starting to adapt and when Melo is out he gets the Melo opportunities more.

I just don't see why KP is the one who is doing this, when it should be coming from Melo or Rose. Guys who are on the end of their primes and need to win.

IMO Melo and Rose don't have the FIRE anymore. They think they do, but really they have been diminished by all the Money and adulation over the years. It's taken the edge off of them and they are too comfortable. You can tell when a player has that burning desire to win and would chew off his own leg just to get a ring. That's not Melo or Rose anymore.

When you are the "franchise player", the buck stops with you. Win and you get all the credit, lose and its all your fault.

That's the way it is and has always been. If Melo doesn't like it, then that's just too damn bad. With POWER comes RESPONSIBILITY.

What Zinger did was UNACCEPTABLE. He should be suspended at the start of next season and fined. Being a professional is not just about respect for others, it's respect for yourself.
