Even if Melo wins MVP (as of now, don't think it will happen... I got Durant winning it), Wade's been consistently the better player when healthy and much more potent in the playoffs, so I just can't see it happening with the MVP+Finals MVP+Championship, even with a dominant run. It's just the case of being more consistent than a 1 year dominance, which Wade has probably had like 4-5 years better than the 12-13 Melo so far.

It does push Melo in the Top 50, quite easily.

I've actually seen that comparison before too with Melo and Robinson before, but yeah Melo's offensive skillset just puts him at an elite level over Robinson as players.

wade took down the mighty pistons.... and a pretty good dallas team.

wade was like a crazy 6'3 point guard skilled baller that could score with the best sg's and block your shiiiiiitttt...

so far i agreed that durant has surpassed anything melo's accomplished, and wade is not gonna be touched by melo this season...


but then theres always the factor of New York.

He gets New York a championship... then... you know how that is. Knicks have been starving for this, and so has the league.

To be in even top 25 for me, he's gotta go to at least 3 more conference finals. Beat Heat, beat a legit contender DRose Chicago team, and Beat the Thunder or even the Spurs.

But how many years can the Knicks stay at a contender level Let's say they win a chip. Tyson will get hurt sooner or later. Smith will not be resigned. Kidd will retire.

Felton Iman Melo ____ and ____ ? Those blanks gotta end up being ****ing Al Horford and some other emerging Center.

If you don't think Shaq was on a steep downslope at that time then you are ****ing brainless.

No he wouldn't. Speculative conjecture.
