Hello.. my boyfriend is a big fan of yours and he has never been to one of your games. I am not sure what to get him for Christmas and I thought maybe a autograph from you on one of your pictures would be cool. If you don't mind doing the honors I would really appreciate it.

Melo,

Odds are you will not read this comment, but on the off chance that you actually run into this, I want to offer you a little perspective from a lifelong Knicks fan. This organization has been dysfunctional for a long time, and the plague has only gotten worse since Phil Jackson came on board. With the exception of the "accidental" Porzingis draft pick, and resigning you, Phil Jackson has significantly hurt this franchise. Furthermore, he is throwing you under the bus for his shortcomings. Any Knicks fan with half a brain and mind to think for themselves, can see what is clearly happening here. The NY media has too many beat writers trying to make a name for themselves, and will fan any flame to try and catch some recognition, and it's unfortunate that you have to deal with the all this static noise instead of just balling. But therein lies the issue with this organization, and I am sure you know that is no fault of yours. I want you to stay in NY, so do real Knicks fans, but if you leave, I hope you win a chip or two, and show Phil Jackson and the majority of NY media just how idiotic their behavior has been. They are trying to chase you out of town, and are tarnishing your name with reckless abandon. My hat is off to you for how professionally you have conducted yourself in this circus. George Karl and Phil Jackson are two old men out of touch with the NBA, and too dsitracted by their own distortion of reality to see that you have matured as a man, a player, and a teammate. I hope Phil Jackson gets fired, you stay in NY, the Knicks draft more talent and make a few smart trades, and you guys have some deep postseason runs.
P.S. tell coach Hornacek to play O'Quinn more minutes, you guys on the court together are a dynamic duo.
I enjoyed your years on the Knicks, and appreciate you holding up to your end of the bargain by playing your heart out every night.

Good luck to whatever your future holds,

One humble Knicks fan, who appreciates your game.
