The Melo, Rose and KP Show

[Video] Jemele Hill Goes in on Melo – “He is not about winning!”

SmugMelo

With last night’s loss to the Cavs, our 2014-2015 Knicks now hold the distinction of having the worst start in franchise history. Before last night’s game, Jemele Hill took the opportunity to rip Carmelo Anthony as player that’s only concerned with money and not winning.

It’s interesting to see how narratives are adjusted depending on the player. Usually when a player bolts rather than tough out a clear rebuilding period, they are called “ring-chasers” and “unloyal.” Now when we have one that stays, and he’s painted as a money-hungry and unmotivated.

Despite the injuries and some horrid shooting nights, Melo is our most consistent player and has had a decent start to this season (23 points ppg, 6 reb, 3 asst, 45% FG). The rest of the team, the majority of which will probably not be here by next year, is the problem. If Melo was clearly phoning it in, I could see this argument more.

Listen to Jemele’s rant below. Do you agree?
