    Phil said the triangle hasn't worked because "we've faced resistance." Implied that was Melo

    Is Melo a Free Agent or are they looking to unload him in a trade?

    If trade, how much value does he have? How high of a draft pick would you give up to get Melo?

    Is it possible for Phil to have handled Carmelo any worse than he has??

    Is it possible that Carmelo could be any more unmanageable?

    He's not a FA and has a no trade clause.

    I'd say someone will give a first rounder for him.

    How high of a pick is too high to give?

    If we're going to be real, Phil put in a coach who has no clue how to run the triangle, Jeff Hornacek and then gave him a player who never adapted to the triangle, Melo...gave him an injury prone shoot first PG who can't run the triangle....Derrick Rose and surrounded him with an injury prone draft pick...Kristaps Porzingis, Courtney Lee, Joakim Noah(how much does Joakim make), Ron Baker, Guillermo Hernangomez, Kyle O'Quinn, Justin Holiday, Lance Thomas....I mean seriously...we're going to blame Carmelo for the Knicks woes when Phil built this team?

    FWIW, Porzingis skipped his exit interviews because he said he couldn't stand the drama of the Knicks anymore. Melo went to his didn't he?

    I think it's pathetic for a GM to demand a coach run a certain offense. Total toxicity starting from the top inside MSG. 45 plus years since a title in the Big Apple and no hope any time soon.

    Question ... not trying to make a statement against Carmello. Hasn't he been a problem on other teams prior to joining the Knicks?
