Melo However seems to Hit a Game Winner, about 70% of the Time he attempts one. This dude is cold blooded when it counts.

He is also #1 in Clutch Stats. http://www.82games.com/0809/CSORT11.HTM
http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/recap?gid=2009020425

LOL to anybody who still thinks Bosh> Melo.

I think Melo will go down as the 2nd Best Clutch Player Ever, Nobody can Top MJ unless they hit a layup, get a steal, then hit the game winner in a game 6 in the Finals.

Discuss, Melo Place in Clutchness Now, and Vs the All Time Greats

No, he won't but as a Nuggets fan I must say it is a blessing to have him on this team in crunch time.

I thought there was no way that go-ahead layup was gonna go in, and it should've been an and1.

Hey, Memphis is playing possessed Now, Mayo on a mission 33 and 32 pts back to back nights :bowdown: back to back wins, lead against lakers by 12 at half.

I'm just trying to bring variety of different Players, to This Forum. Even Though Melo isn't liked by Most. People still won't give him props for how good he is. The numbers don't lie especially in the 4th. The Dude has Ice in his Veins. You guys can Have LeBron, Kobe, and Wade. With 10 sec left down by 3,2,1, or Tie Game. I want Melo taking the shot for the game.

Discuss what?

Melo has never gotten out of the first round.

And his stats in the playoffs are appalling.

For as much hate as Tmac get, at least he does good in the playoffs. Melo losts in the first round while stinking up thejoint.

GOAT Clutch player? This thread fails on so many levels its not even funny.

Hell, yeah! Let's summarize what the NBA has right now:

-The greatest scorer ever (Kobe, of course)
-The greatest NBA athlete and all-around player ever (LeBron)
-The most dominant PG ever (Paul)
and from now on
-The greatest clutch player ever (Melo)

GOAT era, by far.

Actually it's really not that funny. Especially this year where Melo has been playing hurt and is putting numbers inferior to Bosh's. But beyond the numbers, a lot of people would still prefer Bosh, because he offers more value to a team (PF to a SF). It's not laughable either way, because it definitely depends on what your team needs are. But pretty sure, Toronto nor Denver fans would want to trade their superstars for each other straight up...

There is no way Carmelo Anthony will even reach the top 100 clutch players of all time until he does something in the playoffs. That being said he is really under rated this year. People only said he could score, this year he comes out and actually plays defense(still not good) but average on a good night. He is looking to pass the ball and he doesn't force anything well not as much as he use to. He is top 3 in rebounding SF, and on top of all of that he has been playing with elbow\hand injuries this season. But people still don't see that. You hear by announcers\people on forums etc about players like Brandon Roy and Kobe and other players who are extremely clutch and they are but I don't think Melo ever gets the credit he deserves. What's even more confusing is how some people think he was actually better this year most likely because they check box scores but still it's mind blowing to me. Horrible thread tho, should have just said Melo has been extremely clutch this year I don't know what made you think of all time or 2nd all time that's insane:oldlol:

I'll attempt to actually answer your question.

What we know is that Melo has already proven himself to be clutch on a small scale.

But as someone previously mentioned his playoff performances have left a little something to be desired. For people to elevate him into the pantheon of a Michael, Isaiah, Brid, or any other great playoff performer he's going to have to develop the ability to elevate his game when it matters most while leading his team to something significant in the postseason. Like I said before he's already done that on a small scale (regular season) so there is some precedent.

To be fair this a question that none of us could possibly answer no matter how far fetched it may be because we don't know what's going to happen in the future.

I personally think he could be labeled as a great playoff performer when the final chapter of his career is written. As for going down as the greatest to ever do it? I doubt it but anything is possible.

I like Bosh and he is a very good player but he just lacks that game changing ability. When your team is down by 8 in the 4th quarter Melo is going to take over I don't see Bosh doing the same thing. But that being said I'm a Denver fan and I've had the chance to watch more of Melo so my opinion isn't 100% accurate just something I have noticed.

This. Melo still has 10+ years left in this league and he has been improving since day 1, anything can happen.

Again, that's a common misconception. Bosh's clutch stats aren't bad and he plays good throughout the game (and in the final final moments of the game - it's a wing's game - no arguing that). I get all the games that are on Altitude and I see plenty of Denver games year in and year out. It's easy to see Melo hasn't been 100% this, his shot has been off. But he's passing better, making better decisions and even boarding better. I like Melo too, but it depends on what the team needs are and everything being equal, Bosh becomes more valuable to a team more than Melo just because he is a big.

As I've said though, it all depends on team needs; but to say something as ridiculous as "LOL at anyone....." - now that's just ignorant...

bosh gets the same treatment KG got when he was the only guy on his team with the wolves. KG was criticized over and over for being anti clutch and disapearing in the 4th while duncan was dominating. The thing people forget to look at is, Duncan has always had great guards/sf to play with and during the final seconds of a game, those guys are the ones that create shots and get open. The bigs get stopped and can't create a shot...

oh, and Bosh>>Carmelo any day.

I agree with the point that someone thinking one is much better than the other is stupid because like you said it all depends on team needs. I'd just personally take Melo because in the 4th quarter regardless if he is 5-20 that night he is going to go into attack mode and when I watch the Raptors Bosh always seems to disappear like that one game were Moon took that retarded 3. It's not even about the stats it's just something I have noticed. I haven't seen every Raptor game but I have league pass so I'll catch a few games. Personally I think the Raptors would straight up trade Bosh for Melo and it would be Denver who would turn the trade down but once again thats just my opinion.

Jordan was more clutch than Wade or Bryant.

With Wade or Bryant you know they are gonna take the final shot, but you still wonder whether they will make it.

With Jordan you knew he was gonna take the shot and you were surprised when he missed, and if he did miss you felt that the other team got lucky.

Maybe if Toronto was planning on keeping JO and Bargnani which isn't the case. But then again, if Denver had no PF (meaning no K-Mart) and they had another SF on the rise like a Travis Outlaw, they would do it straight up to. It has to do more with the Raptors lack of contributing players on the wings. Joey Graham is starting to become a good rotation player, but that's all he is, a rotation player, not a dependable guy year in year out...

you blind homer it is laughable because Bosh just disappears in the clutch plus only shoots soft fadeaway jumpers, the raptors would get so much better if they had Melo inplace of Bosh

No matter what anyone says, that was a great shot by Melo. Give him credit for playing through the play, because there was no whistle blown. It's not Melo fought that the ref didn't blow the whistle. He did the right thing, by continuing to play on.

I bet the Mavericks wouldn't be complaining, if he had missed the shot. They would of said..well good game.. you guys had a chance.. etc

Point blank... the Mavs lost the game.. not the refs.. the Mavs had opportunities to extend the lead and they didn't.

Great shot by Melo.. no one can deny that.. and smart play by him too...

I don't understand how anybody can say this is a bad call, the defender bumps melo(foul) but then raises his arms up and then looks at the ref claiming that it wasn't a foul.

Oh, but then the three goes in and now suddenly he swears that it was a foul, so what is it? He just wanted the ref on his side for every aspect of the play, it's not a foul the first time and then it is a foul when the shot goes in? What a joke of a defensive play.



How about this?:


13 fouls on the Nuggets in one quarter

Maybe instead of playing the refs and fouls he should have actually DEFENDED Carmelo? Don't stop playing until you hear the whistle, hey just like Carmelo!

Every sportsfan should be on Melo's side with this, true it could have been called, but if it HAD been called would Melo have heard the whistle and thrown it? What if it had gone in? Would the same thing have played out and then the refs have called a continuation and made it a 4 point play?


This is the big what if: What if the foul had been called and the Nuggets would have inbounded with seconds left? Seems that Mavericks fans think that this "foul" happened with 0:00 on the clock, that they had a guaranteed win. Remember Carmelo's gamewinner against the Thunder earlier this year?



And the bottom line: The Mavs had no chance in this series to begin with.

exactly.

if they were trying to foul, then they should have tried harder.

the refs are not making that weak call with seconds left. if melo misses that shot, then all of dallas is celebrating the noncall. so you have to give credit to melo for a huge shot.

besides, the mavs got tons of calls earlier in the game.

well said. people are just upset because the shot went in...not because of the foul because if its not called and melo misses, they love the non cal and are happy the refs kept the whistles in their pockets. if they do make the call, then the mavs are so pissed because of a weak call with seconds left.

wright messed up. not the refs. that was not an intentional foul.

Wright is an idiot and has no reason to be upset with anyone but himself. That was pathetic defense, if you're trying to give a foul to give, don't give a touch foul and then hold your hands up like you didn't foul. If he had just contested the shot Mavs win.

Saying Carmelo is clutch isn't news to anyone. He has been one of the most clutch players in the league for years and he has been the leader in hitting the most game winning shots in the past few years combined.

All of which you said could be put in the gamethread, but you are just an attention seeking whore so you needed a thread to validate your opinion by other posters. It's actually pretty ironic that you say "get a life." What do you do on your free time?

Here we are? And you are quoting my reply that no other poster did. So you cant lie and say "I accidently read another poster who quoted your response". You took me off ignore for a reason. Obviously because you want to read my posts.

So maybe it is you who should get a life? Or make another thread because you want everyone to read your thoughts or lack thereof.

"Hey guys...this is what i think"
"Hey guys its me again, more of my thoughts for you to read!"
"I know there is already a topic made but this is my thoughts. They are much better than anything else posted in that topic!"
"Screw a gamethread, my thoughts will get overlooked. Guys look, here goes my thoughts!"

He plays basketball all year around with Team USA, plays big minutes night to night, and has hit numerous clutch last second shots in his career which takes pretty damn good conditioning to do. Pick something else to call Melo out on but please, don't say anything about his conditioning.

ESPN:

Among the Celtics' players, the lingering impression was that Wright was as much at fault as anyone because he did not commit the foul in the proper manner -- especially when he had the perfect opportunity at the moment when Anthony bobbled the ball before regaining control and sinking the game-winning shot.

Wright needs to be taught to learn to foul.

The woman interviewer asked something to the effect of, "Chauncey, did you know that the Mavs would try to foul Melo and that Melo would play through the contact and drain the game winning 3?" :lol Was waiting for him to say, "yes I can predict the future."

Well in the begining of the thread lilojmayo says that MJ is the most clutch player ever, and that Carmelo will go down as the second. Larry bird is the closest to Michael Jordan IMO in that category, so the question was if lilojmayo really believed Carmelo Anthony is really or will be more clutch than Larry Bird.

are people really that stupid? carmelo one of the best clutch players ever?
based on what? a one game knee jerk reaction that at the base of it was nothing short of total nba corruption. wtf is wrong with people

this sht has been happening for years and its getting so much worse. best recent example was the rondo foul cover up where the footage showed he had a bee line for his face and knocked that chicago player down.
then they doctor the footage to show the least incriminating footage they can.

repeat process for every single questionable scene in the nba ever. the commentators dance around these reoccuring issues and this one is another fcked example.

i love the nuggets. but dont wanna see that sht. melo was clearly grabbed and then his arms were hacked and the nba sweeps it under the carpet.

the officials are guided and always have been for the nba to be entertaining. even at the behest of fouling and travelling. wake the fck up ppl

and now games are being decided because of this garbage. :wtf:

Melo is Top 3 this season in the clutch and has the best field goal percentage of those 3 players. Alt account ftl, chump.

[url]Alt account ftl, chump.

i dont even know what 'alt account ftl' means so the chump diss doesnt really make sense, so i dont have a reply.
in regards to the stats, didnt know he has delievered a few times on clutch shots. george carl mentioned he had made a couple in the last few years in regular season. one this year (?) and another clutch shot a couple of years ago. kinda took his word for it.

i dont deny he has clutch factor ability. but as many others have said, in the finals his numbers and games have been sub par. so claiming he is one of the best clutch players of all time is ridiculous.

see how he goes as finals campaign continues..

the question i was mainly addressing was the fact it should never have even counted if it werent for the bs of late in the nba,
watch the Nuggets vs Mavericks Game 4 Lookahead on nba.com and it shows a better view of the shot than the other doctored videos. his left arm and body get hacked at 39 seconds of the video. it is very clear the referee even sees the foul happen. his head follows atoine's arm as hes hacking carmelo! this foul is undeniable and is why the nba have officially stated the officials made a mistake and had made a missed call.

“At the end of the Dallas-Denver game this evening, the officials missed an intentional foul committed by Antoine Wright on Carmelo Anthony, just prior to Anthony’s three-point basket,” Joel Litvin, NBA president of league and basketball operations, said in a statement issued by the league about two hours after the game.

listen to the Rick Carlisle post game inteview on nba.com see what he has to say about it. its total bs and its happened all year/years long and its finally started influencing the outcome of playoff games.

so, carmelo was fouled with a few seconds to go in a finals series game winning situation and the call was not made. great !

Hyperbole aside, it's sad Melo's great shot is being lost in all the over reaction to the non call. People are acting like they just started watching b-ball yesterday. Since when does an intentional foul end a game?

The Nuggets won game 3 because Melo hit an incredible shot. No one can ever take it away from him. Those who don't want to acknowledge it are just robbing themselves of appreciating a great moment.

First off, I could hardly understand a word you said. Secondly, Melo has made two huge clutch shots this year in two games against OKC as well as others. The stats speak for themselves. So far in his career, he has been incredibly clutch, with people not giving him enough credit for it because he hasn't gotten past the first round. What are you talking about "finals campaign?"

Although this was a bad call (maybe second to LJ's gay 4 point play), Melo is still a great clutch player. I have no qualms naming him alongside Jordan, Bird, and Miller.

Melo is a really clutch player, but he has not earned the right to be mentioned with players like Jordan, Bird, Miller. Hell he just got out of the first round for the first time:oldlol::rockon:

Melo actually avoided most of that contact. I know that the Mavs had a foul to give, I know that the foul probably should have been called anyway, but Wright really should have wrapped him up instead of just bumping him.

And you have to consider that if Melo hadn't hit that shot, the lack of a foul call would have meant the clock would have kept running, the game would have been over, and the Nuggets would have lost. The Nuggets would be the ones *****ing about the foul-to-give not being called.

And really the odds were hugely against Melo hitting that shot in that situation.

So the no call could have very easily favored the Mavs, but Melo hit an incredible shot after the whistle was NOT blown. Deal with it.



Also, did anyone else see Mark Cuban shove a cameraman out of the way on the court? :oldlol: What a tool.

ur clearly one of the idiots i was referring to earlier.

the shot was a no shot cause he was fouled. and if u actually think its just a matter of a normal foul. ur also an idiot. it was a game winning play and the ref didnt call the foul when in the video he even watches the foul being committed. it was fcking bs. how can you not understand this. no no, divert your attention to carmelo being a clutch player. WOOO WOOO GO CARMELO!

ps: carmelos a gun, hope he picks his game up in the following games and series
