    Steven A full of KAKA always ripping Melo and who TF are you telling Melo how to play. He played ISO in NYC because we had no freakin players. Amare knees shot, what other guy on the Knicks were lights out when we needed a bucket. FOH...There wasn't another reliable scorer, hence the reason MELO for scoring all the time.Learn the game FRAUD !! If I was Melo I would cut you off. You overrated anyways, yelling at people and confusing that with excellent sports journalism...

    Melo used to get hot and keep the ball now he gets hot, creates a threat then pushes the team to get hot by giving it up and at that point the floor opens up and moral is through the roof

  • JackyDKnows

  • videopaenguin

    Media starts every Carmelo-related conversation with "I'm happy for Melo" before shitting on his comeback.

  • Cassie

    Max: He's not washed! 2018 Max: He looks washed!

  • I am Who I am
    I am Who I am

    Correct me if I'm wrong but everything that they're accusing Melo of is all the stuff that Harden does. He doesn't play any kind of defense. When he gets the ball the offense is on hold like a line at the DMV. He dribbles for 18 of the 24 second shot clock; and Harden can win MVP doing this isht but a HOF'er has to sit out and now the league is making an example out of him. This is the absolute definition of BS. In every sense if the word. REAL MELO FANS HELP ME GET HIM INTO ANOTHER ALL STAR GAME THIS YEAR!!! PLEASE!!! ✌&💙

    If Molly is going to be present at the table she has to participate...she has little to no dialogue and rarely even plays mediator or arbitrator. Confused why she’s there. Doubt it’s her fault either. Looks like it’s by corporate design.
