    Well, I think Lin's output with the Knicks would have been mediocre next year due to the team dynamics, I think Felton will not have the same output he had the first time around as he was not playing with Melo. The funny thing about JR now being Melo's boy is the Melo did not want JR on the Knicks. JR is talented, but he is a bench player, he is too erratic and likes to shoot too much to be a 30+ minute guy. Woodson though seems hell bent on playing him starters minutes. I think the next casualty of the Woodson/Melo/Dolan triumvirate will be Shumpert unfortunately. Its a hell of a time to be a Knicks fan when Melo is basically acting as the GM

    How does he so much say to begin with? Is he in the same league as Iverson in 01'?

    Melo has a huge EGO.
    The team wants to make him happy.
    He would likely prefer lose as the teams superstar at this point than win and let someone else lead the team.

    Pretty much answers all your question.

    The bolded parts sum up Carmelo Anthony's attitude very nicely.

    LA shouldn't trade for Howard. He looks to be more of a headache than Bynum.

    I just noticed something. LA only has one guy signed past 2013/14. Over 60 million in expiring contracts.

    If this goes through, do you think other major sports leagues will follow?

    THIS.

    Its a slippery slope. Once the owners taste that extra coin, its not going to stop.

    Players won't bitch about it either because it raises the salary cap as it goes down as "basketball related income".
