Default Carmelo Anthony

What's your thoughts?

I just saw a tweet that Hasheem Thabeet (Yes, that Hasheem) was getting a workout with the Knicks

You telling me Hasheem fcking Thabeet is getting more looks from NBA teams than Melo

Exactly 100% of the people who think Melo isnt on a team purely because of ability are stupid.

All of them. Absolutely no exceptions.

He isnt what id call blackballed but his ability no longer justifies the mild "distraction" of his presence and the expectation that he has to play.

Hes just another in a long line of "_____ ****ing sucks!" former stars who fall off and fans with no nuance cant think of a way to describe them without pretending they should be playing in Sri Lanka.

If you never heard of him....and hes signed from overseas...and played exactly the way he did last time he was in the league....you wouldnt see some guy who doesnt deserve a shot in the NBA. You would just see another guy who can score a bit and doesnt play defense....like 85 others.

Melo's fall from grace is eerily similar to Iverson's a decade earlier. He was giving you 22/6/3 back in 2017. From that to not being able to find a roster spot 2 seasons later is crazy. I mean, 38 year old Joe Johnson a year removed from NBA competition just got signed and was a single digit benchwarmer when he last played. That says it all.

Carmelo put up empty stats on bad teams most of his career. Joe Johnson was a playoff performer. Beasley is better than both on paper at this stage but who would you rather have in your locker room?

He scored a lot of points and lost a lot of games except during Linsanity which of course he put a stop to

Yea, forget about Melo making the playoffs every single year while being apart of the Denver Nuggets franchise, a team that missed the postseason 9 straight years before drafting Melo.


Forget about taking that Denver team to the WCF only to lose to the great Kobe Bryant and the eventual NBA champs.


Before you mention his first round exits (because I know you will) make sure you understand that he faced the Spurs twice and the Lakers twice as well as the Twolves in 2003.


All 5 of those squads went onto the WCF, 4 of them went onto the finals, and 3 of them ended up being champions.
