Default Melo's comditioning keeps improving

Photo from media day. Looks at those lean, toned arms. This cat is done loafing, he is working hard to continue improving. Future MVP.

It has everything to do with being conditioned. Three years ago Melo's arms were flabby as can be. The change is a result of better conditioning.

I love how someone can tell everything about a photo. Especially one that shows nothing besides Melo face/neck, arm and a big ass bball.

Lets see 20+ Double Doubles then we can talk MVP. How many did he have last year 5 and one was a triple double right?

Im pretty sure he only had 2 double doubles, and 1 triple double.

Not to mention and double double of points and TO's. He really needs to work on cutting down his TO's.

Doubles doubles are defined by MVP? : Get off stats and judge impact. The guy doesnt have a lot of double doubles...sue him but I'll be damn if you can run off a list of players who score better than he does. Probably THE best scorer in the game right now. His offense opens up a lot of things...and his overall all around game improved last yr. If not for the sucker punch who knows.

You got that right. Particularly when you consider his role anyway. He is on the fast break all night while Camby and Nene clean up the boards, so judging him on double doubles is completely misguided. If he wants to win an MVP he needs to improve his defense, cut down on turnovers, and just be the most efficient he can be.

I think you said it right though Gobb, its all about impact.

If he really wants to condition he needs to lay of the weed. It makes airport transfers easier too.

Yeah he certainly improved on that last season. I always hear George Karl saying how Carmelo needs to trust his teammates and stop trying to force his talent on the basketball court, and i think he's starting to learn that too. Ive always wondered how he would be percieved if he had a few more perimeter threats on his team, because his assists would certainly go up and i think that would change the publics perception of his game. Everyone is so focussed on statistics when analyzing a players worth.

Ok I agree the double-doubles aren't super relevant. But you just said Nene and Camby clean up the boards and this allows him to release and get fastbreak buckets. Does this mean Melo is an MVP candidate or just an a system that makes him look good?
