Default Re: Melo vs Dirk

Dirk plays on a better team than Carmelo. Especially defensively which if you noticed has improved and thus catipulted Dirk into MVP candidate limelight. The comparison of Denver franchise vs Dallas isnt even an argument. So to hold Melo not getting past the first round when Dirk has been with his team for x amount of years is silly to me. No one stripped Dirk of his MVP award. But at the same token winning MVP nowadays doesnt mean you are the best player nor a top 3 player which Dirk isnt in my book. Dirk/Melo are both top 10 players in the 6-10 range...atleast as far as my eyes can see it.

what's silly is you claiming that Melo is better and would be MVP "right now" if he played for Dallas.

Dirk is 10x more refined than Melo....get back to me in 4 years

I don't even get it. They were in love with Avery until directly afte the finals... and were even calling for his head after the 0-4 start, I mean really saying fire him. But in love with him when he first got there and when he was leading the team to their best record ever. Maybe I do get it...they're fickled and love making excuses for Dirk. No its not all Dirk's fault, maybe not even mostly...but damn sure isn't Avery's. And the idiotic statements that Dirk's teammates sucks, well that's just ridiculous... He may have the best teammates in the league, and has for years and years and years

wrong....the biggest reason is that GS played lights out basketball.

Dirk could have averaged 40/15 and they still would have lost...


That must suck for GS, they will never be looked at as winners. Everyone will always look at it as Dallas lost to themselves.

Avery played Dirk at center....he is just as much to blame as anyone

J. Howard in the playoffs: 21.3 / 9.8 / 2.8 on 52% FG and 39% from 3 pt...choked???

What more do you want from your second best player when your MVP gets you...20/11/2 on 38%

Terry poured in 17/2/4 on 42%
Harris got 13/5/2 on 49%

This is Howard's page, go down to playoff stats and it'll show you everything you need to know:

Howard didnt choke...no matter how you spin it.
