The Carmelo Anthony - Flappy Bird Mashup Is So Damn Petty

So petty.  If I was Melo and saw this, I might start crying.  That's some technologically crude shit.  First you have the unbelievably stupid, copyright-infringing Flappy Bird game and then you have the New York Knicks.  Two failed and confusing franchises.  Combine that with the NBA narrative of "Melo can't win" and we're all crying.

As far as Melo goes, I dig his game.  The Wizard of Jab-Step is A-OK in my book.  When you're playing with Fat Ray Felton and JR "#TheTurnUpIsReal" Smith, your game is going to be criticized a bit.  Also, when you're the best point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward and (possibly) center on the team and you only get the ball with 6 seconds left on the shot clock, things aren't going to go smoothly 100% of the time from an offensive standpoint.  I always think that it's bullshit when people blame HIM for the Knicks shortcomings.

That should be James Dolan's head in Melo's place.  Dude has squandered upwards of $300M away, lost out on countless all-stars and future HOFers, and traded away all of the team's first round picks.  I may legitimately have a mortgage before the Knicks have first round draft pick.

Yes, I've laughed at this picture on 5-10 different occasions.  Doesn't mean it isn't stupid.
