Seems like people don't want to blame Melo but I think the problem is him and he's shooting terrible..him and amare get paid the most so I expect them to work the hardest
I can see that... his shooting is terribly off this year. And as much as I've been a big Stat supporter, he is handcuffing us with his contract. Bargs too. Still don't know why we didn't re-sign Shane Larkin, but oh well. We need a fresh start next year, plus I hope we can keep our lotto pick this year.

The New York Knicks were en route to their fifth straight loss last week against Brooklyn when a frustrated Tim Hardaway Jr. screamed angrily, "Get the rebound!''

Certain his second-year teammate was speaking to him, Carmelo Anthony approached Hardaway on the way down the court and used an expletive to ask Hardaway who in the world he thought he was talking to.

Anthony, according to sources, then used another expletive in telling Hardaway he was going to beat him up when they got into the locker room after the game.

While the two players never wound up f!ghting, the episode was emblematic of the volatile state of the Knicks. Off to their worst start in franchise history at 4-19, the Knicks are a team full of discord, defiance and doubt, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

"Nobody's taken a swing at anybody, but there's a lot of arguing and cursing each other out after games,'' one source said.

In addition to the Knicks' lack of chemistry, sources say the players believe coach Derek Fisher's insistence on running the triangle offense is another key reason for New York's struggles.

Anthony could not be reached for comment Wednesday. The Knicks play at San Antonio on Wednesday night, and Anthony said after Tuesday's 104-93 loss at New Orleans -- New York's ninth straight defeat -- that he is considering giving his ailing right knee a rest.

Several Knicks, in addition to Hardaway, are at odds with Anthony and believe he's not playing team basketball. Sources said players voiced their displeasure with Anthony this past weekend, telling him he shoots too much, doesn't move or pass the ball, and only plays defense when he feels like it.

Sources said the most tension exists between Anthony and Hardaway as they haven't cared for one another almost since Hardaway joined the team last season, with each player believing the other shoots too much and doesn't care about defense. Sources said Hardaway was also bothered by the favorable treatment Anthony received under last year's coach, Mike Woodson.

Sources said one thing Anthony and his teammates do agree on is their disdain for the triangle offense. For weeks, if not longer, the players have been ready to ditch the triangle and move on to another system. They feel like other teams know what they're going to run and where they're going to go on the court, which makes it easier to stop them.

When team president Phil Jackson gave his "state of the team'' address Monday, he said the Knicks players have shown defiance to the changes he and Fisher have made in the name of "changing the culture.''

"There's some resistance to discipline and order and culture change and things like that,'' Jackson said.

The players' dislike for the triangle is a part of that. But there is more.

Last year, under Woodson, the Knicks switched on defense. This year, under Fisher, they don't switch, which has some players grumbling.

Also, the day after losses, Woodson would typically hold voluntarily workouts that were light and non-demanding. Fisher, however, holds full-fledged practices and works the players hard.

"Guys are definitely frustrated,'' one source said. "But some of it's just basketball stuff that the players don't like doing. When somebody's demanding that you make a hard cut, you don't like it because you have to work harder. When someone says it's not OK to throw a bull---- pass, guys don't like it.''

But the players don't feel like Fisher is being too hard on them, sources said. In fact, some feel his sideline demeanor is too stoic and they'd like to see more emotion out of him.

"They almost want to see Fisher get upset during a game,'' one source said. "They want to know that their coach will go to battle with them, that he'll f!ght for them. They're not seeing any emotion out of him.''

With free agents who signed before Sept. 16 becoming available for trade Dec. 15, the Knicks could look to make roster changes soon -- with sources saying J.R. Smith is the player they'd most like to trade.

The New York Knicks are one of several teams that the Boston Celtics have engaged in trade discussions involving point guard Rajon Rondo, sources have told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.

The Dallas Mavericks appear to have the best shot to land Rondo at this point, Stein reports.

The Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers have also talked to Boston about Rondo, but Dallas is in the “most advanced talks,” Stein reports.

That the Knicks have engaged the Celtics in talks regarding Rondo is intriguing. On one hand, they have to at least talk to the Celtics if Rondo is available. But is he a good fit for them?

The triangle offense values a guard’s ability to shoot and distribute, more so than it does his ability to get to the rim.

Rondo, who is expected to test free agency this summer, has never been a strong shooter.

But he would be a significant upgrade at point guard for the Knicks, who, led by Jose Calderon, are off to a horrendous 5-22 start.

The Knicks, according to a league source, have been “very active” working the phones since Dec. 15, the date at which free agents can be traded.

When thinking about trades and the Knicks, it’s worth noting that Phil Jackson said earlier this month that he’d only consider trading for a player that was a good long-term fit for the organization.

It’s also worth wondering what the Knicks would be able to give up for Rondo. The Dallas Mavericks, according to Stein's report, are talking to Boston about a package that includes multiple picks, including at least one first-rounder, and young big man Brandan Wright.

The Knicks’ earliest first-round pick that can be included in a trade is 2018, and, judging by the way the roster has performed, the trade values of players currently on the roster aren’t exactly at an all-time high these days.

If the Knicks traded for Rondo, it would likely be with the a.ssurance that he’d sign a long-term contract with them. That development, obviously, would eat up a significant portion of their 2015 cap space.

NEW YORK -- Goran Dragic is going to consider all of his options in free agency this summer -- including the New York Knicks.

“Every team that is going to be available for me is going to be an option,” the Phoenix point guard said before Saturday’s game against the Knicks. “I think New York, they have great base of fans, [a] great basketball organization [and] in the past few years they didn’t play so well. ... That luck can change quick. It’s still too soon to think about that.”

Dragic has a $7.5 million player option for the 2015-16 season that he is expected to decline. Phoenix, according to reports, will make re-signing Dragic a priority. But between Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe, they have $14.4 million dedicated to the point guard position next season.

So Dragic may be deemed expendable. There have also been reports that Phoenix would explore its trade options with the 28-year-old Dragic.

Dragic insisted on Saturday that he’s not thinking about free agency at this point in the season.

Instead, he’s focusing on the daily grind of the NBA season with the Suns.

For what it’s worth, though, Dragic did say that he disagrees with Charles Barkley’s theory that free agents will not be attracted to the Knicks because of the Phil Jackson factor.

“Why not? He did an amazing job with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers,” Dragic told ESPN New York. “I know right now he’s in a different situation -- he’s not coaching that team. But still, I think he has enough knowledge -- he won so many championships -- that he knows what he needs to bring to try to get the team better.”

Dragic added: “You have the great Phil Jackson on this team and then the fans are amazing. Every game is sold out.”

He also didn't think that the Knicks' poor record would be a deterrent for potential free agents.

"It can change quickly," he said.

The Knicks have started the season 5-23. So the light at the end of the tunnel for fans is New York's potential to be a big player in free agency this summer and its first-round draft pick.

The Knicks are expected to have enough cap space to sign a max free agent this summer. So they will have plenty of money to make a strong offer to one of the big names on the market.

It sounds like Dragic will be interested.

Developing their young players soon will be the new credo of this catastrophic 5-30 Knicks’ season, and it eventually could lead to the signing of D-League point guard Langston Galloway to a 10-day contract.

The 6-foot-2 Galloway, a standout on the Knicks’ summer-league team and member of the training-camp roster after going undrafted out of St. Joseph’s, is impressing Phil Jackson as point guard for the inaugural Westchester Knicks.

According to a source, Jackson believes Galloway could be part of the future as a sharp-shooting triangle point guard. Ten-day contracts can be issued starting Jan. 5.

“He’s learning how to be a point guard,” a league source said of Galloway’s Westchester stint.

The conundrum is Galloway can be signed to a 10-day starting Jan. 5 by any NBA team because he technically is a free agent. Only Knicks draft picks, such as Greek guard Thanasis Antetokounmpo, also on Westchester, can’t be signed by other clubs.

The issue is the Knicks would have to create a roster spot for Galloway.

“I’m confident he’ll get his chance this season,” Galloway’s Philadelphia-based agent, Michael Seigel, told The Post. “Who that team is, whether it’s the Knicks or not, I don’t know.’’

The Knicks could waive undrafted forward Travis Wear, whose contract won’t become fully guaranteed until Jan. 10, and try to sign him for Westchester to keep him in the system.

Or the Knicks finally can release injury-plagued Andrea Bargnani, who made his season debut against the Clippers on New Year’s Eve but is back on the shelf after reinjuring his calf against Detroit on Friday.

Bargnani has an expiring contract.

The Knicks are concerned Galloway could be signed elsewhere before they open a roster spot. The D-League Showcase is held Jan. 15-19 in Santa Cruz, Calif., and Galloway will attend. After the preview of the top D-League players, a series of signings often take place.

The Knicks have enough point guards on their roster in veterans Jose Calderon, Pablo Prigioni and youngster Shane Larkin. But the Knicks decided against exercising the $2 million option on Larkin for next season, perhaps thinking Galloway can come cheaper.

Galloway is nowhere as speedy as Larkin but is a much-better 3-point shooter, rebounder and considered a cerebral player.

The Knicks thinking is Galloway’s smarts and 3-point ability makes up for his lack of penetration ability, which isn’t as vital in the triangle. Plus, he is rebounding better than Westchester’s bigs.

Galloway was a point guard in high school and as a freshman at St. Joe’s before being converted to a shooting guard. He is averaging 16.4. 6.2 rebounds, 2.4 a.ssists and 2.7 steals per game and shooting 44.5 percent — 35 percent from 3-point land.

Meanwhile, Antetokounmpo, selected in the second round last June, is brother of the Greek Freak, Giannis, whose Bucks play at the Garden on Sunday.

The defensive-minded Antetokounmpo still is a project, though also hoping to land on the Knicks roster by season’s end. But there is no urgency from Knicks brass.
