scoring title here & there, combined with a few ECF runs. A finals birth might seal it

If he makes a few good playoff runs I think he would be in the Top 50.

Melo has no chance at Top 50.

Even Dominique who is 5x the player Melo is couldn't crack Top 50.

IMO 'Nique is top 50, but you get the idea.

Melo should aim at being Top 100

i agree, and the title most likely will give him a finals mvp award, which makes him a top 20 (or even higher) player undoubtedly to me.

Barring a massive improvement in his all-around game top 20 is pretty much out of reach for him. The top 20 is reserved for a certain class of player - the kind that not only scores but "dominates" games and/or can truly carry a franchise on his back.

To become a true legend (let's say top 50 to 30), he'd need to do at least one of those imo:
- win more in the playoffs (a couple more ECF runs, maybe a Finals appearance, obviously a championship would seal the deal). Doable in the East.
- win at least one more scoring title
- keep playing at a superstar level for very long.

He needs sustained success in the playoffs. He's currently 91st in all time playoff points. So first how about cracking the top 50 there.
