So am I missing something or did he basically call Broussard a loser right to his face?
Calling out the media is NOT smart, especially when you don't have any rings. Now the media are just going to crucify him even more for his shortcomings this season.

It's close. Not all superstars win rings. Would be nice to have some all-nba 1sts tho...

I think he can still win a ring. I think it's v possible. If he does, yall gon b salty.

He's pretty underrated because there are only like 5 dudes in the NBA that are legit stars and he's one of them. People who say he can't be the best player on a championship team are shitting themselves.

Why? What has he ever done in his career to make you think he can be the best player on a championship team?

He couldn't even make the playoffs in one of the weakest seasons by a conference we've seen in the past 20 years.

Melo made it further than the hawks did in the hawks' past 50 years.

He is. For a lot of different reasons. Some justified, most just from a lack of understanding the game from fans to the media and sometimes beyond


-refereed horribly. Prob the most unfairly officiated player since Shaquille


-low ball iq of majority of fans. Stats, speed, jumping high. That's what anyone can see. Pressure put on defenses, inside out game, footwork- nobody expects most to see these things

-biggest reason. Coaching. (Don't laugh, I know it's the nba). George Karl never had his back and that is relayed to officials. If the coach doesn't have his guys back the refs never will. So you go from spitefull (Karl) to dumb and no respect themselves (Woodson/d'antoni). This makes a huge difference. Refs don't want to call as many fouls as are happening and if nobody is trying to make them they won't.


There are going to be so many hurt feelings and bitterness around here this season because of Carmelo, jr, and bargnani. A lot of people are going to be pretty uncomfortable watching how perfect the triangle is for them.

No doubt it. Melo does get somewhat underrated time to time.

He gets more underrated simply because he's on the knicks.

Yes, and his lack of playoffs success since Denver hurts too. I think back in 08 or 09 I seem to remember Melo made WCF once against the Lakers. It was such a great battle seeing Kobe vs. Melo going back at it. I might need to rematch that series.

To be fair on the All-NBA Team selections, he is competing against Durant and LeBron. Those two will always be locks for 1st team.
