Year after trade, Melo's time as Knick falls short

Carmelo Anthony briefly had what now belongs to Jeremy Lin.

Madison Square Garden shook when he was announced. Fans lined up to buy his jerseys, chanted his name, delighted in having the New York native back in the city.

The happy homecoming hasn't lasted.

The Knicks are a sub.-500 team in the year since Anthony's celebrated trade from Denver, and the New York Post even wrote Tuesday that the Knicks should try dealing him to the Lakers for Paul Gasol.

Still popular, Anthony is no longer beloved. Fans appreciate his talents but question whether they translate to victories, fearing he'd mess things up once he came back from injury to play with Lin.

Sure enough, the Knicks lost Monday to New Jersey in Anthony's return, continuing his frustrating season.
