That's been the reason Carmelo has failed the last several seasons. He refuses to take a step back thinking he's better than he actually is.

Melo is a great player, they said.

Melo will age so much better than LeBron, they said.

by now Melo is probably on the brink of a retirement body with the games he missed last year


no way he's remained conditioned

His decline was pretty sharp too - the guy just doesn’t have any other intangibles that can translate to being of much value outside of shooting the ball. So he basically rendered himself obsolete.

This just shows what kind of player Melo was. Chauncey said Melo would get mad if he scored under 30 points even if it was in a win. He always cared too much about his numbers and being "The Star", that's why he's having such a hard time taking a step back. He needs to realize that he's no longer capable of being a star. No wonder he's no longer in the league.

Caring too much about his points is the single reason why he isn't having the opportunity to score again.

Melo was Glenn Robinson on steroids. Nothing more.

This was said from the outset of his career and it proved to be true. However, GR on steroids was really ****in good for about 12 years...it just ended with a cliff. It sucks he's ending up a joke, just like D. Howard, when he should really get his due credit for being a significant force for many years, personality flaws aside.

Never liked him on the Knicks. Was never a leader and was always more interested in the stats versus the win. The sad thing is I don’t think he’ll ever realize that he was a horrible team player. He’ll go to his grave thinking he was one of the greats.

Perhaps this mentality was why he's such a great scorer in the first place. Double edged sword.

this is the part where a lesbian says she's bisexual believing it'll give her the same power as a straight girl only it doesn't, because when a lesbian can no longer measure population, she can also no longer spot out the most impactful player, as pain no longer transfers homogeneous property.
