Melo is at worst a sixth man for the Cavs right today. Melo is still good but the media's narrative over the years finally caught up to him.
On some Petty shit this is karma for Jeremy Lin. If Melo took a step back and let Jeremy cook years ago encouraging the Knicks to keep him Melo wouldn't be in this situation now. The narrative of Melo not willing to accept a lesser role and help develop younger teammates wouldn't exist.
