I'm read for the playoffs to start though. None of these remaining regular season games seems interesting. Let's get to it.
I get what you're saying but it's like saying someone's salary is ok for the amount of work they do when every other person doing the same job is getting paid double. If Stern and the NBA is insistent on today's ticky tac NBA, you can't then call it like the 94 Finals when it comes to Melo. I totally agree. I wish it were a tougher game out there. In fact, I think he wishes that also. He's a physical guy. But when other guys are getting the benefit of the doubt...when he is being called for touch fouls....when his peers/fellow Olympians are getting superstar calls...I know it has to feel like a huge kick in the gonads lol
