09:52 AM ET 10.03 | Much has been made over the past couple of months about the roster turnover of the New York Knicks and how this Knicks roster is now littered with veterans. Head coach Mike Woodson has made it known how he feels about the situation, stating that young players don't win championships, and ultimately that is the goal in the Big Apple.

Old rosters don't do it either.

Oh my Knicks... we will forever be a joke... the latest joke someone played on DOLAN is that old players win championships.... we have the oldest team assembled in NBA history. That's insane. And who can't take a cue from history. When Houston reloaded with Barkley, Drexler and Pippen where did that get them? They got demolished by young Shaq and Kobe... poor Knicks. It's over before it even started... peace out 2012/2013 season... we are gone!

The only thing he should be focusing on is melo.Make sure he 'gets' the importance of him playing an all around game

If Denver gave up on Anthony, how much faith do you have in Woodson (who Cleveland gave up on).

Not knocking the team, but I just feel like Melo is another AI; all flash with no real team accomplishments.

Miami, while not young...is much younger than the Knicks, and they pulled it off

Of course.
Any senior high school team in Miami can pull it off with James, Wade, and Bosh as the starters.

You are quite the optimist, only thing is no one is listening to that garbage you spittin. No one on this site really believe you are a Knicks fans. JGB, Meatplow and others express their opinon and you are certainly entitled to yours. However, you are always 100% negative concerning the Knicks. I never see other posters being always critical of their team, but you buddy, no, its always the Knicks ain't this and the Knicks ain't that. The only time you talked with egerness was when bum **** Jeremy Love was in town and look where his play got him. Maybe you should switch teams and become a Rockets fan. I also recall you championing "Stat". All he does is 1)never play any defense, 2) half **** rebound, 3) attack fire equipment, 4) let oppisition have their way in the paint and a host of other bush league activites. Yeah Stat & Jeremy Love are your guys. I remember last year after hoping the Knicks lose 10 and not make the playoffs, and after you realize your dismal prediction of Knicks faith (missing playoffs) was going to materialize, you jump back on the bandwagon with additionally warped suggestion. Yeah buddy, you're quite the Knicks fan!

And OBTW "Clyde the Glide" did in fact win his only title at a ripe old age with the Rockets. You can't group Clyde in wit dat "lifetime lose" "Barkley".

Easy bro... don't take it personal. Being a fan doesn't mean I should not criticize the team when they go wrong. Still a fan... so loyal to myself! By that I mean if your love is blind mine can see... this Knicks team is a train wreck.

With Lin I can understand why we let him go so no worries there. Y're going into a season counting on Melo to be a facilitator, Amare to post up and Chandler to score? Our best sixth man is JR and our point guards are Ray who was recently out of shape, Kidd at 39 and this Argentine old song that's never played in the NBA. C'mon now... If you plant grass expect weed to grow!

QUOTE(#18):

denver didn't really give up o him as he forced his way outthey had no choice but to move himbut I do agree that he has AIs worst flaws- namely that he hasn't figured out that its not all about him. that is why ai was blackballed fro the league- not cause he couldn't still drop 20, but because he was unwilling to assume a lesser role and not have the offense focused on him.Melo is supremely offensively talented- and he has recently said he will try to be more of an all around guy- but until I see it actually happen for more than 3 games- I won't believe it

Well all I got say is without Melo last year and yes the year before that, you remember when he was the only Knicks to show in Boston for two, followed by two more home games, yeah same thing) the Knicks would have really been disastrous. Nah, I don't see what you guys see when it comes to Melo. "I'm just wondering how does a guy score 47 pt. grab 17 rebound, and hand out 8 assist be called not a all around guy?" Yeah I'm just real curious about that. But anyways I'm 100% thrilled to death that the Knicks have Melo.........I along wit you went thr 2000 thru 09 years, yeah, the pre Melo stints!
