09:49 AM ET 11.17 | The Knicks had just lost their fifth straight game at the Garden -- a disastrous 110-90 clunker to the Hawks. Carmelo Anthony was not quiet in the locker room, making alarmist remarks after the club fell to 3-6, allowing the Hawks to shoot 56.4 percent and score 48 points in the paint. He said the club isn't "trying." Anthony all but hit the panic button, even suggesting the team may soon dig themselves too deep a hole to recover. "I'm disappointed in all our effort," Anthony said. "We're not getting it done from an effort standpoint. It's like we're not even trying right now. We can't worry about the boos. We got to play harder. We're not playing worth a [expletive] right now."

The Knicks no longer have my part-time support. They are pathetic.

The Knicks have my full support providing they stay below the Might Raptors. Otherwise I might get our mayor to sit on Melo

Gasol and Nash for Lowry and Gay and then you can be in the prime position to draft Wiggins and have the best 2 Canadian basketball players EVER on the same roster?#Riggin4Wiggins

I'm afraid the greatest Canadian basketball player is done.

yeah- after I wrote it- I forgot aslo that tyson will come back and then the same thing will happen with him that happened with dwight.As crazy as it sounds-NY actually has a couple of decent trade chips if they want to break it down. Felton has a tiny contract and even my arch nemesis jr turdsmith has a small enough deal that a team that is desperate might take him. as for AB- his contract is large- but it isn't amare large.... lolbut NY would likely have to take back another bad contractbut as we all know - someones garbage is another's treasure.- so for example- and I'm not supporting this-say boston wants out of wallaces contract- Maybe NY feels that wallace is worth the extra year....

Knicks need an allstar caliber point guard.
Felton isn't going to get them to the finals....
Their only hope is to land Rondo.

Even when Chandler was healthy NY were still bad. You're missing the PG that stirs the pot. NY is lacking leadership on the floor.

That's what I've been saying.
All all star point guards are locked up in long contracts.
Rondo on the other hand is up in two years.
Melo has already said he wants to play with Rondo,I don't know what trade can work to pry Rondo from Boston but I do know that in 2 years Rondo can be got.
