All-Star player couldn't get ANYONE worthwhile to play in NY with him. So that says lesser about the star player than the rook, don't you think?
In reality, you're laughing at Melo.
Lastly, this is no longer Melo's team. That dream is over. This is Kristaps Porzingis' team!
I laughed because:
1. No FA wants to come here anyway, but if they did...
2. They'd much rather team with KP and Melo than with KP alone which brings me to
3. You actually think this is KP'S team and he could carry us (really?) at this point
4. And this...

The Knicks play in a state with an insane tax rate, field a team that no rising star is old enough to remember them as a good team, and have the most unrealistic fanbase there is. Now, on top of all that, now there's a triangle offense that no AAU bred player wants to play in.
The rumor is bogus (we're now in the armchair section) and your reasoning is weak considering the factors.
But since we'll have $ this summer KP the leader can attract the top talent Melo couldn't. Surely we'll be competitive right?
