Watch that MTV link when Melo was a rookie. I called it from day 1! Melo always has been a me first selfish player, horrible attitude and a horrible teammate.

Thereís a reason players like Melo and Kobe turned to shit after the age of 34.

Low-IQ, offered nothing outside of scoring, inefficient scoring, doesnít play defense



I rank both of them around the same all-time

No wonder he's no longer in the league.

That's why it hurt him so much when that reported suggested he should take a lesser role and come off the bench. Everybody knew Melo was declining, everybody except him.

Chauncey calls Melo a good teammate though in the clip from the OP

The word you're looking for is selfish. And partially delusional.

Some people aren’t wired the same. Same reason Melo can’t take a back seat is the same reason Andre Igoudala can’t be the man of a team. Igoudala is comfortable being a role player, one of the guys. Melo isn’t. He’s been the man all his life. Iverson was the same way.

Doesn't surprise me at all that Carmelo was upset with a win but only scoring 21, 22 points, but happy when he scored 30+ in a loss. It's bullshit like this while he'll just be another passing footnote in NBA history and not anyone cared about 10 (hell, 5) years from now. Another Adrian Dantley basically.

Kobe stans. You have to admire the loyalty if not the absolute stupidity.
