    If you had learned how to pass the ball bruh you'd have a chip by now, if not, then teams would still trade FOR you. Crazy talented Iso player to the point I'd take a prime melo vs. prime Lebron 1 on 1 but hey he's terrible with ball movement. Shouldn't have waited for your decline till you decided to play team ball hehe no hating just facts. Look at his Denver and Knicks days.

    I honestly think Melo could’ve been more. He could’ve been a elite defender with his physical tools and honestly could’ve been a better passer. I think after the Okc season the league looked at him as he would useless and that shit was bad for reputation. I wish melo could’ve actually been in a championship winning team after he left the nuggets. Hopefully he wins a chip with LA even tho I don’t like the lakers. I wish melo went to the blazers after 2014.

      & not to mention he's a 5%(Nation of the God's & Earths) so he wasn't willing to just bow & kiss the league ass just for a check sort of like Mahmoud Abdul Rauf, they stood for something. Melo could have avoided being black balled for that short amount of time if he didn't stand up for himself & what he believed in himself. They tried to break him down but players around the league & ex teammates never said anything negative about him Lebron stood tall for him in the media along with a lot of other marquee playas that right there spoke volumes, respect goes to the Portland organization they saw beyond the nonsense beyond the hooper & looked at the man & put him back in the game. The NFL NBA is an obey us league let's not forget how David Stern tried to hold Hakeem Olajuwon back, in some way he did because sometimes they act like that man championships & greatness didn't exist they mention his rivals Ewing Robinson even Shaq without mentioning Hakeem like he wasn't just simply killing them but was way better than them. The league politics is full of💩. A lot of politics gets in the way of the game.

      @Gee Andrezzi I was primarily referring to his days with the Nuggets. If I'm not mistaken, he was the sole scorer on their team and was considered a super star that could create his own shots and be extremely lethal for the opposing team (when necessary). His duration w/ the Knicks wasn't impressive besides the couple of clutch shots he had to give the team a few regular season victories. When he decided to take his talents to the NY, that's when we undoubtedly noticed a decline in his gameplay. So like I said, as an avid NBA fan and a thorough player observer, he was nearly unmatched when it came to his ability to score from anywhere with anyone on him. Only player that came close back then and who showed a promising, yet similar scoring prowess was Durant

    Mello was an incredibly talented professional basketball player. So essentially what I’m saying is his skills on the court are second to none, but he lacked in his personal life by having those other three kids outside of his marriage and losing the love of his life because of his own actions! This is just another case of just because a human being is great at one thing professionally does not mean the human being is great in his personal life. LaLa went and had all that surgery andvher Man still could not keep his thing in his pants so what good was having all that surgery. It’s just really sad when things don’t work out personally for these guys because they work so hard their whole lives professionally. Honestly she’s had so much surgery now she looks like Kim Kardashian said I probably went to the same surgeon and I’m not mad at her because that’s her choice but when you look at her photos online from five or 10 years ago she looks like a complete different person…..she still lost her husband and family either way you look at it. Sad af. Same for Matt Barnes he lost Gloria Who was and still is the the cream of the crop and now he messing with Beverlys daughter, but he ain’t loyal because he already said that he doesn’t believe in just having or sleeping with one woman and she still took him back. May be able to delete the videos on your platform but you cannot delete them from the Internet every time ppl Google it comes up y’all might want to try addressing your personal lives the same way and tackle your personal life with the same efforts.

      @D moe Kobe was known as a high flyer early in his career and perfected his mid range game all through out his career, Melo is already a shooter from the midrange ever since he came to the league. What he lacks is leadership and the tenacity to win, he just wants to score. Plus he lost his quickness later on his career and just start jacking up jumpshots and 3s here and there that's why the league saw him as inefficient. He's still a great scorer, he wouldn't have a scoring title if he wasn't but still, this is a team game.

      @Chance Bartholomew my point is that they blame MELO for Lins career trajectory. like its melo fault that Lin didnt become a "star". this man played 10 years in the NBA & made $60 mil. he had a hellavu career. melo being on some hoe shit or not did not PREVENT Lin from becoming whatever is was these people thought he should be. and my point still stands that LIN left the Knicks to join the rockets for more money (as he should have). i just ask how is that melo's fault?? knicks could have matched his offer, but didnt. how's that melo's fault? these are rhetorical questions, im just saying blaming MELO for how LINS CAREER turned out makes zero sense.
