Melo deserves a ring, he has skills and works hard on his game, he's a better role model for kids growing up today then ref manufactured steroids "superstars" like those on the Heat and D12.

KD, like Melo, impacts games by scoring...and as we saw yesterday, HIGH volume scoring. (13/30)

that's how Durant and Melo impact games, scoring and drawing defenders.

Kobe is likeminded. Which is why he doesn't see the hassle of stopping LeBron. You can't stop LeBron by stopping his scoring, thats just one dimension to his game.

The Knicks look much better than Miami and are as talented when you look at their squad now that they are healthy. One session with THE GOAT and Melo is playing GOAT like ball... Mj may not now how to manage a bball team but he is still the best BBALL mind out there...

If you notice, the two young "stars" Kobe is always quick to praise are Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook. It seems like those are the two dudes he likes to think of as proteges.

What do Kobe, Melo, and Westbrook have in common? They're all selfish, unreliable efficiency, "hero shot" players. Kobe knows those guys are just basically junior versions of him, so he wants to prop up guys that play that style and make it sound like thats how you should play. Especially cause he knows those two are no threat to his legacy.

He typically doesn't ever hype up guys like Lebron, Durant, Wade, Paul, etc. or other guys that play the right way and can actually be argued to be better than Kobe because of it. Sure, if someone asks him about Lebron he'll say something respectful, but the guys he goes out of his way to praise have always been Melo and Westbrook. He's trying to give credit to those who play the same overrated, self-centered, low-IQ type of basketball he does.

I agree but the Knicks will present match up problems for the Heat. Chandler was instrumental in beating the Heat in 11 and this Knick team reminds me of that Dallas team... Kidd at point with two other pg that can play pick and roll. Smith is looking better than ever , kMART AND CHANDLER are great on defense and Melo is looking like Dirk ala 2011..

I agree that Carmelo and Westbrook are definitely better now. Becuase of Kobe's extreme selfishness throughout his career, which dwarfs that of Melo and Westbrook, you could argue both of those two are more useful now overall than Kobe ever was.

But I'm just sayin, in the typical fans' mind, there's no way Melo or Westbrook are an actual threat to Kobe's legacy. Therefore he doesn't have a problem giving them dap. He rarely is complimentary of guys he knows are gonna surpass him in terms of talent and legacy.

Totally agree. Kobe is an all time top ten player.. He has a chance to get down to 5th best ever if he keeps playing.
