My bad, I just noticed A &$#%#&@! Something started a thread on this already.
Looking at the video a few times,you can clearly see KG has 1 thing on his mind,and that was to get under Melo's skin,which he did...When KG was on offense he was acting he he was defending Melo..And that elbow at the 34 second mark and push under the basket is what Finally TICKED Melo OFF!!
Melo desperately needs to keep his cool though. KG plays crazy all the time, it's not the norm for Melo.
It went both ways. KG got in a alley op dunk lastnight on Melo. I clearly saw Melo give a slight nudge with his back and shoulder while KG was in the air holding onto the rim. The pushing and elbowing both guys were doing it also, however Melo took it more personnel and KG didn't.
KG is the bigger taller guy, so he is going to fight harder for the position he wants in the post. Paul Piece killed it with that fade away shot on Tyson Chandler while the game was still up for grabs. Paul Piece at the end of a game is clutch as anyone. The Celtics put Green, Paul and KG on Carmelo it frustrated him took him out of the game.
I like to see that kind of edge for Melo. I'm not the biggest Melo fan but he's changing my mind with this stuff since I can't stand KG and his antics.
I agree that it's good to see someone stand up to KG's antics.
An edge is good, but Melo doesn't need to get himself into any off court altercations with opposing players. The last thing they need is him getting seriously hurt or suspended.
A guy in the crowd at the 17 second mark, on the left side of the video. I think that is John Calipari.
"The Knicks need to find a way to get rid of Amare, they won't go nowhere with him on the roster, they need a defensive minded Forward. Oh wait, let's trade him to the Celtics to bring in KG. I'm still a genius!"
