The Knicks, with Toney Douglas running the team was certainly awful. D'Antoni was also too stubborn to be a good HC.
But the Melo-hate was just ridiculous. The comparisons to Starbury was crazy. Melo is one of the best pure scorers in the game and has never had a losing record. He was hurt for much of the early season, but finally looks healthy again.
