Rameek, this thread is actually pretty good, later on I may have to re-title and stick it.
As far as our max cats I will be holding them accountable as well, and you know I call out these guys when they don't do their work, we go way back.
Like I said in the other post Amar'e will be masked by Chandler.
Amar'e will go back to his weak-side defense in the four spot, and his defensive woes will not be noticed.
We have an anchor in the middle now, and actually if I had to put them in order this how I hold the players accountable......
WANTED this stage and he wanted his max dollars.
He received everything he wanted, and now as fans of this club, I want everything from Melo.
Even D'antoni is putting the team future on him, by making it known Melo will have the offense ran through him.
This is what Melo wanted, he's my guy, but trust me, I will rip his ass indefinitely if he shows that lazy shit from Denver on this team.
Melo wanted this, mortgaged our future flexibility.
I expect to see plenty of that game 2 playoff Melo, and I will not be happy without it.
That was what a superstar SHOULD do.
Not really the numbers per se, because 42/17/6 is not realistic.
But the ability to carry the offense from a scoring and facilitating aspect is crucial, and he defended well from a rebounding and position aspect.
just have to man the post, and stay healthy...that's all.
He got his fat paycheck as well, I want to see our "anchor" screaming.......
"get that weak shit outta here", and get those rebounds.
Anything less that 12 rebounds 2 blocks will be a disgrace for the price.
is in his natural spot now, no excuses, ball out, and help on defense.
And Amar'e needs stop bitchin' when he don't get the ball, like he did last year, Melo is that 1st option now...fall in line.
Nice rant for me too Rameek.
