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.

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

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.

GenieKid 11 meses atrás
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.

“Smeared?” How about entire NBA seeing Anthony is a non-rebounding, non-defending ball stopper? Not to mention a cancer on every team he ever played on. And do you want him projecting his attitude on younger players? Want to go from contender to also ran? Bring Anthony aboard.

The same Lynn that just won a championship on the bench for Toronto. When is the last time Lynn was actually able to produce on an NBA game on a consistent basis. Yet he was on that chip team. You can't even compare Lynn's stats to Melo's. I believe Melo made a huge mistake in his career when he stood up to Phil Jackson for his comments about Labron's business associates. Jackson called them a possey. Melo immediately confronted Jackson about it and told him to cut it out with the racial slurs. From that point on every chance Jackson got to berate Melo's skill set he did. I can't recall that ever being done by a GM in any pro sport. The situation about Melo didn't just start today. Go fact check what I am saying. It might help you understand what's really going on.

Not a good catch & shoot 3 point player or a good defender. Melo is a good member for a team that has sooooo much going on that melo has little attention & can peel off some mid range shot's. Him choosing NOT to play for portland was being greedy. No big team's want him , but he held out in hope of that happening. Melo chose to stay Unemployed. Can't feel bad for the first ballot hall of famer.

melo needs the ball to be effective and the way he is playing now he slipped off, I don't know what happen but suddenly he declined bad... real bad he ain't hitting the it like how he used to before. What Max's is saying is mostly the reason why he can't find a team specially this season is an opening for a championship everyone want's a guy that would make the most out of their minutes. At this point Carmelo can't be a role player cuz he can't play d, he can't catch and shoot and he needs the ball a lot to be effective. so meh... I'm, sorry melo and his fans, if he gets back in shape though people would sign him without a doubt.

Max if we agree with what the top players are saying Melo is better than 80, maybe 85 percent of the league. Saying that please stop the narrative Melo has to be the 12th player on any squad in this league. Please don't bring Dantoni into the conversation. He has never won anything. How does Chris Dudley get picked up an not Melo? Milwaukee could use him. Philly could use him. Portland could use him. Again please stop with this Melo can't defend, he's not a catch an shoot guy. Your telling me that Dudley is a great defender? Again, go back to Phil Jackson in New York defaming Melo's skill set every chance he had to anyone that would listen. The narrative of Melo not being a good defender started with Jackson. Melo coming off the bench started with Jackson in New York. All because Melo confronted Jackson for his negative comments on Labron's business associates calling them a possey. Stephen A I'm surprised you don't bring this up. Stop with the really dumb narrative that this is a players league. It still is a owners league. If not then Melo would be playing some where because he can still help a team win.
