Come on, the hate some of you guys throw at Melo is silly. He's not the best player in the league but he's near the top.
Hate? I've watched and been of fan of Melo since Syracuse. Get your head out of your ass and realize when constructive criticism is being used. Melo is the last person I would choose to hate
on. To be honest, I try to imitate some of his offensive moves on the court.....
Kobe is a good defender. Older and slower, but still good. Why have't the refs put the clamp on his game? That's a lame excuse.
