Obtaining Carmelo Anthony was what has gotten the Knicks into the same mess Donnie Walsh dug them out of previously.

I can't get on the Knicks for getting Carmelo. They weren't going to contend for a championship with Felton, Gallinari, Chandler, and Mozgov surrounding Amare. I have no confidence that they will beat the Heat with the team they currently have, but they still have a better chance with Melo than they would have had without him. If you did not spend the money on Melo where were you going to spend it? There's nothing worse in the NBA than signing average players to big money deals and clogging up your cap (David Lee, Ben Gordon, Gilbert Arenas, Rashard Lewis, etc). I really wonder where so many of these contracts come from in the NBA. How does Hump get $12M per year? Yes, Melo has his warts, but he is a premier scorer.
