I don’t even shit on Iverson. I watched him play live once in his soph year at Georgetown and Cuse won by 20 so I got nothing against him, he didn’t cause me no problems. Gotta lot of respect for him, actually and I even rooted for him and Philly for a bit(because late career Coleman had a brief resurgence there). Fun and unique player to watch.

But any Carmelo slander will be swiftly shot down, even if it is in response to a classic OE shit breath bait post.

never made the finals, so there's that.

the part of his career where he has a chance to be AI or better is already over. it didn't happen for him. no shame in that, i guess.

we know you lead the league in mad/gm though.

and AI was a jet-lagged Vince jumper from never making the conference finals, so there's that.

He was unable to surpass the legendary Finals legacy of Latrell Sprewell before his career faded into Bolivian. it didn't happen for him.

This happened for him though: http://media.philly.com/images/110810-iverson-400.jpg

And the fact that he plays big minutes and AI still played bigger speaks to AI's motor, which few guys had (ironically Spree was one of them in his prime, incredibly energetic).

You can harp on the meaningless years of a guy's career--the ones AI didn't play, the ones Melo will play in uninteresting fashion--but one guy's jacket is gold, first ballot. The other guy is watching his former team be on some addition-by-subtraction shit and underachieving.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

let alone the NBA Finals. but he didn't make the shot, so true, it doesn't take away from Iverson reaching the lofty heights of Sprewell's Finals legacy. Truly the stuff of legend.

>ones AI didn't play, the ones Melo will play in uninteresting
>fashion

certainly not as interesting as this fashion AI played in: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/photo/images/attachement/jpg/site1/20101110/0013729e4ad90e4435070f.jpg


>--but one guy's jacket is gold, first ballot. The other

you mean Alex English? (i.e., Melo minus the NCAA championship and Olympic gold medals)

>guy is watching his former team be on some
>addition-by-subtraction shit and underachieving.

I watched a dope show Monday on NBA Tv. It's basically Steve Smith interviewing players for an hour. That one was Vince Carter. He talked about his decision to attend the graduation then come back and play. He said he went to each player individually and asked did they have a problem with him going. Every one of them said no...go do it, you should do it. Then after the series was over...reports came out that players were angry and thought it was selfish for him to not go through his normal game-day routine. He said it really kinda hurt the team, cuz he was pissed and felt betrayed. Ok...that's all I got.

what did the Knicks get for Melo?

interesting that you're caping for this guy after he left town and the team did fuck nothing while he was there.

alex english is not exactly on the cover of the program at the HOF induction.

been a fan since cuse. what's interesting is that you're still taking shots after he left the Knicks. seems oddly personal for you.

AI is already first ballot. Best thing Melo can do is equal that. Meanwhile he will never have won as many playoff series/games or as many scoring titles.

As far as Anthony goes, like CWebb I was actually a huge fan initially. It's disappointing to me to see someone with so much talent not get the most out of it. With Webber, injuries were a factor and also he was just left completely unchecked early in his career (of course he was a petulant asshole that rejected any and all forms of guidance). With Anthony, I didn't see that as much, he grew as an individual player but still never rounded out his game or became a top-five guy like he could have been. It's more disappointment than hate, but then you have people saying flowery things about him like he didn't underachieve. As good as his career has been, it could have been a lot better.

You could make the same argument for Iverson and another one of my favorites, Charles Barkley, but the freak worker like Kobe or KD, eh, that just isn't who those guys were.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

They werent HOF level guys but both Jrue and Iggy were in the ASG and played rookie seasons for us. Not too many other rookies in franchise history have dropped 40, probably like Charles and Hal Greer are the only ones other than these two. Maybe some fluke guys. This won't be the last one for Embiid and Iverson had several as a rookie (including five in a row).

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
