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.

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.

Mean Melo I'm one of your biggest fans. I support you wherever you go and fuck ESPN for that bs. You get hella disrespect . If I had enough money I would buy all of your stuff from back when you were in Syracuse. If you could ask anyone they would tell you I can you my pops. Got so much love for you as a ball player I personally think you deserve to be in the HOF. And I know for sure you keep putting in the work that you putting in you definitely gonna bring the knicks far. If you switch teams best believe I'm switch too you are my favorite player man your might not see this but if you just so happen to look out for me this season imma be in the seats definitely cheering for you.

Dear Carmelo Anthony,
I didn't pay much attention to basketball until about two years ago when I started dating a guy whose heart is held by the sport. He has been watching you play for about as long as you have been around. Basketball isn't just something he does because it is fun; it is his dream. He is a three-year high school varsity starter and plans on attending college to play basketball. I wanted to do something special for him for Christmas this year since it is his last high school season. I made something using cutouts of all of your jerseys from high school to now, and did the same for his jerseys (but with jersey outlines for when he plays in college and "the NBA." I think it would make everything so much more special if I could get something with your autograph on it to add to his gift. God bless you and maybe, if I can save up enough money, I will bring him to one of your games next season. Thank you.

Hello Mr. Carmelo Anthony. I pray that you are having a bless day so far you are still one of the best players in the NBA. You just need to be surround by other Talented players playing beside you being around one of the smartest point guards. In the NBA like Rondo would be a good choice too good players like you around a good point Guard, is a very Dangerous combination Rondo just needs to be surround by some of the best players and you are one of them you enjoy the rest of your day.

I have a feeling Magic Johnson. Might make a deal with you you are going to be that unstoppable force that extra fire power. They really need you always bring your A game you are the best. And don't ever give up you are going to win a championship it's not over yet look how long it took Michael Jordan, he had to get pass the pistons you are going thru the same thing don't worry it's going to happen and if you sign with the Lakers it's over for the Golden state warriors. Your defence is incredible you can run the court all day long you continue to go to the Gym and take care of your body and eat the right foods you have a bless morning.

Time for you to change your sports nationality and become a bigger legend in the country of your father, by helping them get there. I'm counting on you, you do not have to be loyal to any of yours sponsors anymore, thank you.

Melo, it was awesome to see you drop 32 the other day. You have been my favorite player since 2004. I thought when you came out of Syracuse that you would be just as good or better than lebron. I own every jersey from every team including olympic melo. All your shoes too.

Please do this for me. work on your defensive footwork/skills or retire. I cant watch other teams pick on you on D on the pick and roll. Its hard to watch.

I see that you worked on it in your time away. Your offensive game is still one of the most wonderful things to watch. I make my daughter watch it. Not everything is a 3 or a layup. You are a physical beast that can bully ball any center in the nba.

I hate turning the channel when i can see they are going to pick on you in the pick and roll.
