    Default Melo suspended for tomorrow's game

    @WojYahooNBA: The NBA has suspended New York's Carmelo Anthony one game for confrontation with Kevin Garnett.



    This kind of sucks I wanted to go to the game.

    With Felton and Melo both out they're really going to rely on Amare to score tomorrow..

    No surprise here.
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?

    So we get to play an eastern conference rival in a favorable situation. I assume, of course, that there will be a surprise blizzard sweeping across central Indiana tomorrow.

    Even with Winter Storm Gandalf brewing out west, this would be rather impressive to see such a surprise blizzard pop up.

    The NBA really should fine itself for pulling one of their major stars for a TNT Thursday game night. (At least they gave a day's notice.)

    Jumping into conclusions sounds a lot like you.............. I didn't say I'm not going I'm still trying to decide, Melo not playing is something to consider.

    No kidding. I have tickets and am ticked that he isn't playing. I know this obviously helps the Pacers' chances, but I've never seen him in person and was kinda looking forward to it. Plus he is on my fantasy team. This takes a bit of the buzz away from the game.

    Damn really disappointed. Now the Knicks fans can play the, "missing our best player card," if we win.

    I'm going to the game, but I would rather have the win than see Melo again (assuming we do win). I would rather both squads be healthy, but hey, we don't have Granger. I agree though, it does take away from the buzz.

    No Melo, Felton and Amar'e with limited minutes. That bodes very well for Chris Copeland. We can be aware of this guy. He can certainly score the ball. He has a similar game with Melo. We should exploit him on the defensive end in order to limit his scoring.

    Well, it's Melo's fault for acting like a high school bully kid that waits for his enemy outside the school gate in the first place. He could've settled it differently if he doesn't want to get a suspension.

    Anyway, the Knicks are still deadly without Melo. A Melo-less Knicks dismantled the Heat by hot 3pt shooting. The only thing that sucks here is that if the Pacers win, many will downplay it because "Melo was not there" and if they lose, many will surely say "Pacers suck because they couldn't beat the Knicks without their superstar."

    Can we compare this thread to the responses in the Gregg Popovich thread?

    In any case, I'm thrilled. You take the wins where you can get them. This makes a win more likely.

    Missing one game costs him $176,000. LOL, the amount of money these guys make is just surreal. It's impossible for an average person to even comprehend it.

    Stern needs to fine himself $250k. Healthy scratch for a superstar on a nationally televised game.

    Melo not playing. I'll pass. Just like I haven't attended a single game since Danny went out.



    oh wait, reality. Sheesh.

    Well it's not that big of a deal. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit bummed that I wasn't going to see him play in person for the first time. This game has some hype to it with it being Pacers-Knicks (both are good again after many miserable years) and being on TNT with Reggie returning to Conseco. Anthony has been one of the best players in the NBA this season, so losing him does take a bit of the hype away. The NBA always has been and always will be a star's league, and Melo is one of the biggest stars right now. If you have Heat or Lakers tickets and Lebron or Kobe miss, then it's a bit of a buzz kill. Melo isn't quite on their level as he doesn't have the hardware, but he has been incredible this season.
