What an asshat!

HE will never be a winner because its always about him. What about the crap his teammates and coaches had to endure with him?

Good Riddance!

He really rubbd me the wrong way these last few days. I fully admit i was never a fan of his as a player BUT most of the time i have always complimented his character and the way he has handled himself. But these stupid comments sounds really babyish and stupid. Intstead of just saying "it didnt work out in New york but i hold no grudge and wish them luck" he starts the"babe in the woods" routine and how he was "stabbed in the back" and he walked through hell". N Matter what happenes tonight it is definetly a breath a fresh air with him gone

This attitude is truly why I hate him. Arrogant, narcissistic, selfish lazy ass prick. Hope GS 5-0 on their ass in the playoffs.

This and the whole defense thingy


The guy was voted best teammate by his peers. A lot of quotes in the papers today from his old teammates about him being agood guy. Not sure what else needs to be said. He s gone anyway.
doesnt change the fact that his comments were stupid. Gotta be fair about that at least

What did he say?

basically that the knicks stabbed him in the back and it was "hell" here. Seemed very overdramatic and petty. I mean ive always complimented his character but i didnt like his comments.

Do you think he was right? Hell maybe a bit much. But A few years of Knicks dysfunction, Phil's public comments, Phils inability to communicate with players directly and that's all he said? Don't think it's anything to get upset about. We can't accuse a guy for being overtly sensitive because he finally comments, after 3 years of holding it in and being professional, on his perspective of things. Specially when we all thought he was probably right about how Phil handled things. And btw, he still didn't mention names. Did he?

Dont get me wrong i understand his turmoil against phil. I mentioned yesterday that phil did things wrong when it came to that situation. However the knicks overall gave Melo ALOT since he got here and sacrficed a lot which put us in a tough position. I just felt he should have been a bit more appreciative or professional in his comments. Either way im glad we dont have to deal with that anymore

People argue that its not Melo fault but then you see stuff like this saying he wanted special treatment. "A conversion " yeah it's so hard. Tell that to a kid trying to make the team. A ****ing bitch that makes 25 mill wants a conversion. So damn corny. We need talent but we don't need pre Madonna **** boys that think they are bigger than the team. A players individual goals and brand shouldn't be above the team. Fuck this guy.

which of phils trades were you impress by?


look dude, phil fcked up, he handle the sht horrible wrong, here's why you have a talk with your star player

LaMarcus Aldridge was unhappy with the Spurs the past two seasons and Gregg Popovich understood why.

Their heart-to-heart talk has made basketball life much easier for Aldridge, and his comfort was apparent in the season opener.

Aldridge had 25 points and 10 rebounds, and San Antonio held on for a 107-99 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night while playing without leading scorer Kawhi Leonard.

"He just didn't feel comfortable and it's 98.75 percent on me," Popovich said of Aldridge's struggles. "I tried to change him, I tried to make him a different player and I think that really affected his ability to feel comfortable and confident on the court. And we took care of that, basically by me letting him know that we're going to do it differently."

San Antonio needs Aldridge to feel at ease with the team missing Leonard and Tony Parker to injuries. Even without them, the Spurs had enough to hold off the revamped Timberwolves.

This is the way you do business, not throw your players under the bus via the media(aldridge would be better playing somewhere else) and twitter

Aldridge played like crap since he's been in san an, is pop catering?

Phil should have got off his soap box, and coach for a yr to show melo, fisher or JH, how he truly wanted his triangle to be played..

that entire ordeal was as embarrassing as the larry and steph drama, MDA and Marbury, Ewing and Layden, this franchise as a history of bad PR

S.A isn't NY.

They tried to trade LMA during the draft but found no takers. In NY with Pop being the coach with his track record and LMA having to replace Duncan. LMA probably would have been buried by NY media. Then again Pop is a dick to the media and gets away with it because he wins. So don't know if NY media would be chomping at the bit to tear him down. Or feel it would hurt their credibility to do so and tear into LMA instead.

Either way any drama that goes on there is limited attention drawn to it in S.A. In NY every single day there would be pot stewing questions asked and comments made looking to create material and intensify the drama.

I am quite sure a class A dick like Pop would not have built the track record he has in NY. He would never have lasted long enough here. Media here only gives you a break as long as the confetti is still flying. Once it settles, the love is gone and it's the same old what have you done in the past minute meat grinder time again.

Phil could not physically coach here. Watching him sit in a chair was painful enough. If he could have come here and been the Knicks Everything Pat Riley, maybe things would have been different. Maybe Phil knew coaching here would just tarnish his rings. We will never know.

The record here shows Phil's management style suhucks. Some great players can't really coach. Actually, what truly great players ever were really great coaches? Russ played while coaching, and sucked when not playing. Willis sucked. Lenny Wilkens managed to win one chip in all those years.

Maybe truly great coaches suhuck at management. A new generalization is born.

When you stay off Melo, you actually make sense Einstein.

Good to know your reading comprehension skills have suddenly increased dramatically, now that your personal pariah is off suhucking the life out of some other franchise.

Let it go, bro.

How'd you like those two block thingies and the two steal thingies last night, Boy Genius?

Look at the trolls spending years posting thousands of Melohate, complaining about one comment. Hilarious.
And last I read, his terribly abused teammates were taking dinner with him. But I'm sure asshat didn't pick up the check.

The guy was voted best teammate by his peers. A lot of quotes in the papers today from his old teammates about him being agood guy. Not sure what else needs to be said. He s gone anyway.

His bad shot selection and poor defense were hurting the team. But he is popular. Those are separate issues.

Enough already. How did it hurt the team? By not letting them win more than two whole games when he wasn't throwing up terrible shots and being old Enos Kanter on defense?

If he said he too took responsibility for the team's failures, then he'd be right. When you shoot worse than most of your teammates and the worst shooting teams in the league and play poor defense, you lose the ability to be taken seriously when calling out others.
The classy thing to do would be just to move on in life and not comment anyway. He should be thankful he's in a great situation where he's his teams third best player now. A lot of people like KG were stuck in bad organizations much longer.

OK, it helped us get KP. We owe him a thank you for the poor shooting and defensive naps.

Aldridge played like crap since he's been in san an, is pop catering?

Phil should have got off his soap box, and coach for a yr to show melo, fisher or JH, how he truly wanted his triangle to be played..

that entire ordeal was as embarrassing as the larry and steph drama, MDA and Marbury, Ewing and Layden, this franchise as a history of bad PR

S.A isn't NY.

They tried to trade LMA during the draft but found no takers. In NY with Pop being the coach with his track record and LMA having to replace Duncan. LMA probably would have been buried by NY media.

Or feel it would hurt their credibility to do so and tear into LMA instead.

Either way any drama that goes on there is limited attention drawn to it in S.A. In NY every single day there would be pot stewing questions asked and comments made looking to create material and intensify the drama.

I am quite sure a class A dick like Pop would not have built the track record he has in NY. He would never have lasted long enough here. Media here only gives you a break as long as the confetti is still flying. Once it settles, the love is gone and it's the same old what have you done in the past minute meat grinder time again.

Phil could not physically coach here. Watching him sit in a chair was painful enough. If he could have come here and been the Knicks Everything Pat Riley, maybe things would have been different. Maybe Phil knew coaching here would just tarnish his rings. We will never know.

The record here shows Phil's management style suhucks. Some great players can't really coach. Actually, what truly great players ever were really great coaches? Russ played while coaching, and sucked when not playing. Willis sucked. Lenny Wilkens managed to win one chip in all those years.

Good to know your reading comprehension skills have suddenly increased dramatically, now that your personal pariah is off suhucking the life out of some other franchise.

Let it go, bro.

We have a roster full of garbage defenders, but he's ok with them, as long as the name isn't melo.
