    Thank God the Suns didn't get in on the Melo Sweepstakes. Funny I rooted for him when he was at Syracuse but not no more.

    Melo is a joke. A "superstar" in his prime on a 4-20 team in the East.

    Lol are you serious? The Bulls need a guy scorer like Melo instead of another guy who is injury prone as hell in Pau.

    I always laugh when I see Pau and Rose on the bench wearing a suit its like the Bulls never learn their lesson. I wouldn't be surprised if they give Greg Oden a hefty contract next.

    And this the NY media creating garbage. Melo didn't demand out or anything, even though he probably should.

    Yes, I am serious. Melo is not a team player and Thibs demands players to be team palyers. And for an injury prone guy, he is averaging a career high in rebounds and 19.8 PPG, while playing some of the best defense of his career while only missing 3 games. Also, Melo would not have allowed Jimmy Butler to break out like he has and Bulter is having a better season than Melo so far and they a reall close in scoring, while adding Pau's scoring. Plus, we would have had to of given up Taj Gibson, Nikola Mirotic and Doug McDermott to get him. And here is another thing, Pau has played 10 less games than Melo since Melo joined the Knicks, so I guess Melo is also injury prone. So, yes, I am glad Melo is not a Bull.

    Amare and his expiring contract may be more attractive to many teams out there.

    Melo done for the season and Pau having one of his best. I stand by my original statement. Would you like to retract yours?

    I still think Melo would have been a better fit than Pau. Many Bulls fans on their forums have been complaining plenty about Pau and his lackluster defense. Not that Melo is a great defender or anything but he's better than Pau.

    Plus Pau-Noah really doesn't work that well.

    Melo probably doesn't get hurt if he isn't being forced to carry the entire team do so much like he's had to do in NYK as well.

    I am not sure you can blame Melo, the Knicks are a horrid organisation and have been a joke for years.

    They basically have a crazy owner, a rookie GM, a rookie coach and a bad roster.
