I thought about this the other day. It is incredibly ironic that Melo is on the Knicks now. His most infamous episode as a player was when he threw the bitch punch at Mardy Collins at the garden and then ran away. I remember people were calling him Carmela Anthony because of the bitch-ness of his slap/punch.
Melo definitely has turned a corner. He no longer performs these acts of jackassery on and off the court. Obviously it is great to have Melo on the squad cause he’s a top 10 player in the league but it is just so funny to me that he used to be hated by Knick fans.[twitter-follow screen_name='tarmosino' show_screen_name='no']
