09:06 AM ET 11.04 | Tyson Chandler missed practice yesterday due to flu-like symptoms, but the Knicks are listing their starting center as probable for today's matinee against the 76ers at the Garden. "He's fine," Mike Woodson said. "We'll see how he feels [this] morning when he comes to the gym, if he makes it." It's unknown if Chandler was under the weather Friday, when he played just 25 minutes in a 20-point rout of the Heat.

Well it seems as though he's following Amare's lead in how to be suffering afflictions at season's beginnings. Its the same story with these two and unlike you, I agree with Chris Mannix that Melo will carrying the Knicks until these very fragile players come back. Funny though, faced with mountains of criticism, Melo is always there is seems, season's end, bigginnings, playoffs, you name it.

why are you starting? and why do you always have to come out with guns a blazing?can't you just take some prozac and come in mellow?no sheet melo will be carrying us- who else will? one of our 58 year olds?

No, I wouldn't be the one stuck at sea in a boat thats carrying me to safety complaining about how it gets me to safety, but you on the other hand, would probably punch a whole in it, like you always do with Melo, and that JGB, is quite baffling to say the least!

You are great.

You find a way to wave the Carmelo Anthony fan Club banner whenever you can.
Anthony is a great one-on-one scorer, who can win a few extra games (maybe even a 1st round playoff series depending on an easy matchup).

But that's it.

Ever notice how every one on the team stops and looks at him when he gets the ball?
He scores really well but does not make a team into a contender for anything serious.

NY CAN"T be a tittle contender with Anthony as their best player, because he doesn't make others on the team better...the great ones can do this.

So, enjoy his individual accomplishments, because that's all that will come of the Carmello-Knicks.

So explain to me why Lebron was accused of the same exact thing Melo is presently being accuse of. Now that Lebron join two other top ten players and won a ring he's considered on of the great ones. Well I'm waiting on the day Melo is playing with a top ten player and see how he'd do. Look, even at Kobe's age, and the fact that he's still top ten, he's now playing with a top ten player, so is KD.

Top Ten in no real order: Kobe, Lebron, Wade, Bosh, Howard, Melo, Paul, KD, Westbrook, Rondo. Top five in no real order: Griffin, Duncan, Pierce, Garnett, Love (not Jeremy Love).

Uhm, funny I don't see Chandler or Stat anywhere there.

Save the Melo can't win as a team player drama, he's always carrying the Knicks by himself, same as Lebron before the sign and trade, the only difference is most of you are to shallow to see it.
