Seems like only yesterday that the Donnie Walsh experiment was considered a failure. Melo was being called a ballhog, a loser, fat, ect., ect. Today he holds the Big Apple in his hand and has New York sitting 2.5 games behind the Heat for best in the East. Not to mention the fact that he and Amar'e are finally on the same page. Melo is second in scoring behind KD, and is playing like the superstar the Knicks traded a starting five for. If STAT holds up his end of the bargain and Carmelo keeps up his play, the Knicks can go far.
