I STILL say Carmelo is top 20 players in this league. I will NEVER allow any of these "analytic nerds" to convince me otherwise. I dont let anyone think for me i know what i see. And what i see is a man that can still drop FIFTY on a good day. I want to see him pllay cause I ENJOY watching his unlimited offensive moves. The NBA is entertainment and Melo is entertaining af. There i said my piece.

Melo hurts Melo ...he walks in with an attitude that is not healthy. He has to work!! He has to understand he isnt a superstar anymore!

Carmello doesnt Hustle. He didn't work hard to stay in great shape. He didnt make winning a priority in the NBA. His defense sucks. He isnt worth the huge money.

Why would anyone want Carmelo?? An older, volume shooter, who plays no defense & is delusional & believes for whatever reason he's still a starter... I'm sure there's a lot of teams looking for that resume'... lol

I just don't think Carmelo Anthony could really put up the points even at this point in his career people seem to still be overestimating his output he's one of those guys he could maybe get your 10 points tonight maybe but if that's coming on with him unable to play Team ball still trying to play in this isoball that it's not worth it I think you would be best served on a team that's kind of on the cusp of getting better like Wonderland or something some team that's top-tier Carmelo would slow them down like Portland is James Stephen A Smith name in Los Angeles I still need to be like LeBron needs to get him a job in LA LeBron's not running that team you can make suggestions but he's not running that team he is also at the point in his career where he needs to show that he can produce this season 2 LeBron's not sitting pretty he needs to really take the Lakers to another level this season with a team with no depth

Melo in summary: a defensive liability with predictable offense, and he doesnt adjust his game as he gets older.

At this point, Melo needs a chance to ball out. Everyone is saying he can't play ball anymore is def motivating him.

I still believe Melo is better than 50% of the 2019 NBA players, why can’t he on a roster?
Charles Jones

No one can say this if they truly saw how Melo was playing in games the last 2 years. His shots are horrible. Not just the selection but also his percentage. Also he can't defend. He's not fast enough to be on the perimeter. And he not strong enough or have enough explosion to get defend down low or get rebounds. This story they're pushing is for people are for people who only like Melo. But not his play style.

Funny thing is, they never mention what the teams did after Melo..nothing. They blame Melo, he left and none of those teams have won anything. They need to focus on how horrible Chandler Parsons is, but they can't be cause they can't handle the truth!

Melo has the shadow of not winning a championship. A personality of egocentrism. A narrow of a scope for articulation on the ball court. That's why he isn't hired. I have never been a fan of melo- his play is empty like Dwight Howard's. Conversely, I would be happy for him and Dwight to do well late in their careers where seeing them play team-ball would be refreshing and mystical- for lack of a better term. I want these guys to do well, and I can't root against guys who have had bad pasts that are changed men: The keyword is "men" here, where Melo and Dwight I believe are finally entering manhood and either have to pay the price, change their game, or bow out because it's too late.

He's always been a skilled offensive player. The problem is that he's also always been a black hole who stagnates ball movement. His skills have diminished and he's shown, repeatedly, that he doesn't play well as a role player, and he's a sieve on defense. He had a nice career. Let it die.
