    Melo basically playing for free this year. I'm happy for him though.

    • Emmanuel-John Turner

      @Jayden V I guarantee you Melo didn't agree to that borderline disrespectful contract because he needs the money. Did you actually look at the contract? A million dollars is a lot of money, but it's nowhere near the amount he's made over the course of his career. But of course one of you "smart" folks are too smart to understand everything said isn't it's face value or literal meaning. It was more akin to a joke than anything. 😒

    It's amazing to compare the career paths, and current skills of LeBron and Carmelo, after 17 years in the league. Maybe he'll end up in LA after his 1-year Contract ends with Portland. Will be nice to see him win a Title with Lebron.😂😂

    i hate the fact that guys don't know how to double team lebron. cause his energy can't sustain so long

    • Teareal Davis

      That’s too easy for lebron and it’s a real skill a lot of nba players lack . Kd specifically is ineffective when trapped . He gets clumsy . Knowing how to pass is a real valuable and effective skill ppl overlook because of scorers like Jordan and Harden . Gotta appreciate ll facets of the the game to be the best you can be . But passing is a gift , you either have it or you don’t . Simple

      Chamberlain Achilihu it’s harder than u think. If popovich tried and failed u know it’s pretty difficult to achieve a successful double team without giving up points. Lebron can pass through and create open shots if u double team him

      Charles D Month ago +1

      shindean and CJ McCollum went 5 for 13 that game. It happens against great defensive teams. The question is what are we asking him to be and can he deliver. They need him to provide a scoring boost. Averaging anywhere between 15 and 20 points. And help them win with a veteran presence. He does all that which is why they should pay him. The blazers weren’t going to the finals anyway but they were about to be out of the playoffs til Melo stepped in.

    • shindean
      shindean Month ago

      @Charles D we all saw the box score, he played for 28 minutes and went for 11-38 just to get 15.
      My guy, we know he sucks, lie to yourself that he's going to help Portland but don't defend it, that's why we made sure he never came to Miami😆😆😆

    • Charles D
      Charles D Month ago +1

      shindean nah he dropped 18 on the Bucks and 15 against the Lakers. He drops. 20+ on worse teams. He’s a hall of famer whether you like him or not.
