Now I'm worried about what will happen when he comes back...I honestly think they need to consider bringing him off the bench for a few games to see how he fits in, and then slowly work him back into the starting lineup...I don't like Amare at the 4 and Melo at the 3 though...the game is changing and Melo plays MUCH better at the 4, and Amare would need to be at the 5 if he wants to play alongside Melo. Unfortunately only way that happens is if Chandler gets injured....
Careful..... they'll break you heart... A team with Melo and Stat isn't going to go far when it really counts.....
That's the thing everyone is forgetting...Melo HAS been to the WCF...and guess which year that was? It was 2008-09 season, the year he went to the OLYMPICS and tore it up. Why was Melo so good that year? Because he was in a groove and in SHAPE thanks to the olympics. Same thing will happen this year. Melo is going to have an MVP-type year. Even someone like Amare, when he's healthy, is one of the top bigs in the league...and remember he has also been to the WCF a few times, the one most recently being one of his better years as a Sun in 2010. I'm not worried about Melo this year at all....I expected the Knicks to be a top 4 team this year. Also as others have said about Mike Woodson, he did a FANTASTIC job with them last year after dantoni left, and I just felt that the players really responded to him. Felton never wanted to leave NY, and you can bet he's very happy to be back and he's IN SHAPE. The lock out really messed up a ton of players last year, and felton was one of them.
OK..... being in shape and a groove doesn't change who you are.....

Didn't he then mysteriously get injured?

Grego, very good breakdown! I totally forgot that kawhi was DRAFTED by the Pacers!!! The reason they TRADED him was because they ALREADY had Paul George! Isn't that crazy? Yeah, I remember when that trade went down, I was like damn it, the Spurs done did it again. they always make smart moves. I expect the Spurs to be in the top 3 again this year, possibly even #1. They have the same team and Kawhi is in his 2nd season and looks like he has already improved, plus POP speaks very highly of him. You KNOW you're good when a coach like that gives you props.
Another guy to keep an eye out on (if he's still available) is SPENCER HAWES. If anybody remembers, he was a top 10 fantasy player last year in the beginning of the season until he got hurt. Obviously his value is directly tied to Andrew Bynum's health...but with that being a constant question mark, you might wanna scoop him up in case....esp if you HAVE Bynum on your team. Check out his stat line from tonight: 16 pts, 12 rebounds, 2 threes, 2 assists, 2 stls, and 5 blocks.
Royce Young @dailythunder
This is the first time since his rookie year that KD has gone five straight games without scoring at least 25. Longest streak is 12.
