“I don’t want that (scoring) role anymore. I can do it. It is what it is, that’s what I do best. But in order for this team to be successful with the guys that we have on this team right now, we need a more well-rounded team. So if I have to sacrifice doing some things out there on the offensive end I’m willing to do it.”Via Zagsblog
The thing about Melo is that he can do it AND be the closer offensively, a trait that separates him from other players in the league. If he can do what he says, and follow the lead of veterans like Kidd and Camby, the Knicks are going to be a very, very good basketball team. Unfortunately, plenty of media people have their doubts as do fans. Melo has said all the right things. The time for action starts tomorrow.
