what in the fuck are you two talking about?

I was never against or for Carmelo, simply a neutral.

Players I never talk about: harden, Westbrook,iverson, Carmelo,etc

I’m not into volume shooters or those with below avg FG percentages.

Just good to see him in a good place

Posted by Vex_id, Sat Nov-30-19 10:45 PM
Portland was smart -- they started out slow and knew they needed to do something *fast* to shift momentum before the season was lost. They also saw how successful Dwight's campaign has been w/ the Lakers with a similar narrative: past-his-prime HOFer who was said to be dead in the water. Turns out Dwight is a real difference-maker and a treasure in the locker room -- on a non-guaranteed contract!

What does Portland do? Offer the same non-guaranteed contract. Rare instance of *no* risk / big gain payout.

*lot* of teams could use that 'Melo firepower off the bench right now.

The Cavs need Melo but the front office listened to ESPN. Melo's doing everything he's supposed to. Melo out there playing defense giving much better effort. His mid-range game is a lost art in this new era of analytics driven office.

2708295, IMO...

I can't think of any available bigs but that's who the Cavs need. Forwards and centers that can produce offense. Both TT and Nance have been overtaxed... and Nance is a small ball center as it is.

John Henson (who IS on the Cavs) is actually a good choice, but he has not been available for long stretches.

Cavs are getting their ASSES kicked by the likes of Miami and Milwaukee, not just because of how good they are, but because they can basically reach over anyone on the Cavs' head and score.

2708235, Happy for Melo but lets also look at this- he needs good guards
Posted by Castro, Sun Dec-01-19 02:58 PM
In hidsight, this is what he lacked in NY.

The rest did him good too....he is playing with a bounce that he lacked.
2708239, agree, he looks to have more bounce than he did in OKC/Houston
Posted by DJR, Sun Dec-01-19 03:10 PM
Hopefully he can maintain that. He’s also being allowed to play to his strengths. It’s a better fit for him than his last few stops.

He lacked good guards for most of his career other than a year or two each with Iverson and Chauncey.
2708275, He had good guards since he left ny tho
Posted by Cenario, Sun Dec-01-19 11:14 PM
But yeah, he def had subpar guards in ny.

He had success when they started 3 of em..felton, kidd, prigioni

2717278, Carmelo Anthony continues to prove doubters wrong, deserves an apology

https://www.nbcsports.com/northwest/portland-trail-blazers/carmelo-anthony-continues-prove-doubters-wrong-deserves-apology?cid=Yahoo&partner=ya4nbcs

By NBCS NW Staff August 04, 2020 10:28 PM

We are now accepting “Carmelo Anthony Apology” forms on behalf of the 12x All-Star from everyone who believed that Melo was ‘washed’ and that his time in the league had run its course.

The 36-year-old veteran has proven the haters wrong.

The 18-year, future Hall of Famer has been nothing short of clutch for Portland during this NBA restart, hitting huge shots with not a lot of time left on the game clock. He rises to these big moments.

After the game, his point guard Damian Lillard spoke out:

He’s a Hall of Famer. I think it’s more disappointing that people are surprised by it. He’s a Hall of Famer like I said, he’s a great teammate, and that’s what we expect from him. We put him in those positions because we expect him to make those shots. We believe he’s going to make those shots, and we brought him here because we knew he would make a difference for our team and he’s been doing that. — Damian Lillard on Melo

Here’s what ‘Skinny Melo’ has been doing in the restart:

- Game 1 vs. Memphis: 21 points, 7 rebounds, two steals.

- Game 2 vs. Boston: 13 points, 3 rebounds, two assists, one block.

- Game 3 vs. Houston: 15 points, 11 rebounds, two steals, one assist.

Second-year player Gary Trent Jr. has quite literally turned up the heat for Portland this season. He has proven to be a solid backup at the three spot behind Melo and the two have formed a nice relationship on and off the court.

: Carmelo Anthony has taken a confident Gary Trent Jr. under his wing

GTJ also thinks Melo deserves an apology.

Everybody that's said something negative about him-- they need to apologize. That's Carmelo Anthony... for him to come back and bounce back like its nothing-- that's why he's Carmelo Anthony. It's a blessing to have him on our team. -- Gary Trent, Jr.

Thank you to all the other teams who also thought Melo was ‘washed’ because Rip City sure loves Melo in a pinwheel jersey

on that 12 pts you’re talking about. So even that is inefficient.

Avg 1 assist a game, just like he did last season, with
a shitty per of 14 because he does nothing else.

The least active so called superstars in NBA history.

And still doesn’t play defense. He lost his starting job to Derrick Jones,jr
who is offensive shit, shooting 30pct fg, and 29 pct from 3...but Jones plays defense.

TRASH.
