Default Re: What Does Melo Need To Do To Be Top 50 All Time

Debatable. English is comparable. Just because he wasn't hyped since high school as the next great thing doesn't make Carmelo better. They were both high volume scorers from the small forward position. Only 6 teams made the playofs in each conference when English started not 8 btw.

Imagine if you made this thread about Paul Pierce when he was 28. It would be an epic bump with people calling him a career loser at that time.

Pierce was always a better all around talent. He's not just a high volume scorer.
