You are aware how elite top 20 is, aren't you? I mean not even Garnett and Dirk are consensus top 20 players all-time and, at their peak and in their prime, both were better than Carmelo's ever been, and both have rings. You can say Garnett wasn't "the man" on that 2008 Celtics team, but he was their best player.
