Bruh Melo the NBA is not the only league in the world. Go make money somewhere else. I bet they'll appreciate your talent.

Mellow isn't a good role model to younger guys, he's selfish and doesn't care about anything but getting his. He will be remembered for nothing, he accomplished nothing. It's a team sport Mellow

I watched 20 seconds into the video and stopped it. The problem with Stephen A’s logic is that Carmelo does not shoot the three well and does not play defense so while he may be a better individual player as far as his overall skill set goes he does not do the things well that modern NBA teams look for and covet. End of discussion

Forget lebron. Carmelo has enough clout to get himself signed, front offices are just not willing to take a chance on him for whatever reason. Maybe that Billups interview was a eye opener

Jesus, all he has to do is try on the defensive end! When your plus/minus is -24, you do not deserve to be on any team! If you score 20, but give up 44, you actually suck!

The Carmelo can still play better than 80% of the NBA still. The man can shoot.

Ever since they moved to L.A. from Minneapolis, the Lakers have continued to gerrymander the NBA with backing from the networks and the league. Wilt, Kareem, Shaq, Pau Gasol, Lebron, etc.The Lakers are the Yankees of the NBA. Why on earth would any true sports fan want to see this crap played out year after year? Musical superstars sent to big market franchises with the rest of the league playing the part of the Washington Generals...

Bruh did Melo hit Max baby moms or sumn? He is super salty at him. Acts like he just ain’t got talent. Like he didn’t score 61 at MSG. Put some respect on my mans name. You just gotta stop hating eventually. Put him on any team and treat him right. He’s putting up 20+ a game.

Look,I dont give a shit about how Melo has to live with the choices he made. He bounced his ass around the league and is set financially for life. He's an entertainer and he got paid well for his services. Nobody owes him shit and ain't nobody going to reach out for sympathy and Melo shouldn't want anyone to. Move the fuck on. His story and energy has exhausted the shit out of me.

Stephen A Smith is stating the obvious once again. Of course LeBron has the clout but who gives a fuck? Nobody wants him on their team.

Melo had his opportunity to join LeBron and Wade in Miami, it was not supposed to be Bosh. Melo chose the money which I knock no one for getting paid but maybe LeBron who took less money to go to Miami because he wanted to win felt Melo cared more about money then winning so know maybe LeBron doesn't want to play with him, period.

Nobody deserves anything but respect and love to a degree. Melo has to know why he has been almost ostracized from the league. We don't know the owners or what those conversations are though and something is amiss.

multi150nyc - Před 21 dnem
"The game is more efficient now." SMH does Max know what the definition of efficient is? With so many one and done players & wannabe carbon copy teams jacking up three balls, I truly would refrain from calling today's NBA league efficient.

i don't think any of the contenders will pick up Melo. they want 3 & D guys. but i'm not sure why some of the weaker teams are not going after Melo. anyways its not Lebron's job to facilitate a pity signing

Yea, I am sure there are NOT 450 players better than Melo in the world but that’s not the point. You know how many times I am at the gym and I am captain and I DONT take the best guy available first? Yea I’d openly admit he is the best at the gym but he’s not the best for my team and what I’m trying to do. I pick the players that I know mix well together, hustle, and don’t take bad shots. Almost every time I’ll be on the court all night while the “best” player is continually getting picked up by the team who has next cause he continually loses. I fully understand this may not be the best analogy but I am just trying to play Devils Advocate.
Danny Dan
Danny Dan - Před 21 dnem
Once again not-so-smart Stephen A. Smith is making a logical fallacy. Basketball is a team game. There are literally thousands of basketball players who are not in the NBA, but individually better than some of the 450 current NBA players. The reason why Melo not playing in the NBA now is not because he ranks below 450, but because he won't make any team better by joining at this point. Period. His defensive liability got much bigger by his fading offensive power. He has proven over and over that he is a ball stopper and all he knows and is good at is iso.

Melo admitted that he needed to mature but yet Max doesn't think its enough unless he accepts a bench role! Max is wrong with his analysis trying to turn a superstar into a specialist overnight.

Melo averaged:

Superstar - 2004 - 2017 (25ppg)
Third Option in OKC - 2018 averaging 16ppg
Houston - 2019 (13 ppg)

I'm not sure how Max and others can expect him to go from superstar Melo to benchwarmer in one year. Doesn't matter what flaws he has, you can't expect him to change his role that quickly without even giving him a couple years to figure it out.
