the knicks just never learn. they always think short term and never long term. whoever is a big free agent currently, they want to get him, which no regard to the future or team chemistry. we saw how long it took them to recover from the marbury, curry, etc years. finally they have a clean slate and acquire amare. thats fine, thats a good start right there. now u do ur best to build around amare. the trade for melo was totally pointless. they let go of some good assets when melo was likely gonna sign with them in the offseason regardless. and even signing melo wouldn't have been a good idea. once again, the knicks is all about now now now. couldn't even wait half a season.
and again, knicks just go after who's the hottest on the block right now and care about team chemistry later. at the time it was melo. this offseason it was chandler. who's the hottest, the knicks gotta have it. the team chemistry is horrible and melo, amare and chandler is the worst combo of big 3 in the history of big 3s, in whichever way you look at it.
at the start you need to accumulate assets then figure out a direction you want to go and get players that can go along with ur assets. the knicks are all about getting assets all the time, throw them all together and form a team.

in conclusion, thats why amare was good prior to melo coming and then even worse now with the addition of chandler. they're repeating the same mistakes that took team years and years to recover from.
