The truth is that it never really felt like Melo really wanted to be here, long-term. Some of that relates to reasons I described. Another huge aspect of it would be the George Karl of it all, especially as more and more stuff comes out dealing with what miserable POS Karl was. And then there's other potential items related to his desire to be here (especially vs a market like NYC) that would be even more speculative and really doesn't matter at this point.
And let's keep it really real - Melo didn't do enough to warrant unconditional love during his time here. He ain't getting a statue, and shouldn't. But he should be shown love and celebrated as one of the great, great players we've ever had. And his time here will always have a lot of sentimental value for me.
