59. "Can we agree it’s crazy they gave away Melo’s number though?" In response to In response to 0
Like sure, Melo’s run in Denver didn’t get them a title like they dreamed it would... but cmon, the man is a legend and you gave away his number just a few years after he left (and while he’s still playing)? Look at their retired number list. Melo absolutely did enough to be honored with that group.
I could almost understand if Jokic was already a star on another team and THEN went to the Nuggets and requested 15, but at the time he was just a 2nd round pick and no one knew he’d play at this level. Tell him to pick ANY other number.
