Default What happened to the LeBron-Melo Rivalry?

When they came into the NBA,The NBA hyped them up as being the next great rivalry on the level of Magic-Bird.
I remember how hyped their first match-up was,and then there 2nd match-up and now well

Well both are arguably 1,and 2 in the NBA at the SF position.

Why did they discard the hype for the rivalry?

#1 bron is on another level than melo. melo is fantastic, but if cleveland offered lebron for carmelo today... they wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.

#2 melo's supporting cast is on another level. bron is winning by himself. melo has the dpoy and iverson who's having an AMAZING season.

Lebron is the best in the NBA.

Melo doesn't a garbage supporting cast like Lebron does, therefore, he isn't taking over games like him.

Melo has amazing shooting skills though.

You're claiming Melo is slightly above being average


Although Melo has Camby and Iverson he did average 28.9 PPG last year with 6 boards,and 4 assists.

This year he's averaging 25.6/7.3/3.4

How is he just slightly above average?

Hes a Top 10 player in the NBA

unless they are going to start meeting in the finals, they aren't ever going to have the sort of rivalry that larry and magic did.

Lebron is the man but its no rivalry.

Melo is something like 7-2 vs Lebron lifetime.

this sundays game is the first time its been televised in a year or two because the games are usually blowouts

Melo isn't a scrub, but he's not Top 10. And the gap between him and LeBron is widening every game.
