Melo had Iverson, Billups, and Stoudemire.


Melo had a healthy amare one time and Amare decided to punch a fire extinguisher in the playoffs and broke his hand thus ending their season

Him and Billuos made a conference finals, played a year together, and went to my together where Billups got hurt.

Melo never had a Wade or Bosh at all. He did have Iverson though

I think he’ll mostly be a 2nd quarter player. He probably won’t play much in the 2nd half unless it’s a blowout or we have injuries.

Melo is one of the greatest closers in the game. He’ll play in the 4th unless it IS a blowout.

Melo and Baze GONNA SHOCK DA WORLD!!! I liked both their games last season. If they play anywhere near what they did last season they will more than earn their paychecks.

Melo has a big following on social media. There are a lot of Melo fans out there and now they are all Laker fans.

Melo and AI are just two shooters who don't play any defense. AI is so overrated, especially in Philly. Base on the media hype of these two, you'd expect a better performance from them in 2008. Our Lakers swept them. They put no fear in anybody with their empty points. Melo will get an opportunity to hit some meaningful buckets this upcoming season.

To be fair though, Melo got AI at the tail end of his careers. Still good numbers in 2008, but he fell off the cliff after 08.

Kuzma:
28.7mpg - 12.9ppg 44%/36%/69% shooting - 6.1rpg - 1.9apg - .5spg - .6bpg - 1.7 TO

Melo:
24.5mpg - 13.4ppg 42%/41%/89% shooting - 3.1rpg - 1.5apg - .7spg - .6bpg - .9 TO


Melo's production is better in shorter minutes than Kuzma. Also more efficient. But defensively Kuzma is miles ahead of Melo... But I'm interested to see if Kuzma's improvement on defense is more due to having better defensive schemes and a guy like Vogel. If so, I expect Melo to be a little better on that department.

On defense: there are going to be some games he struggles, maybe mightily. AD, as the last line on defense, & LeBron roaming a bit will help.

On offense: there will be games mixed with a bit too much ball stopping. OTOH, there will be nights that might border on the magical. Something we'd seldom, if ever, get from Kuzma.

You mean Denver? He didn't coach in NY. Or, did Melo cost him a job in NY or something?

Karl is the absolute last person to be talking trash on this matter.. You got the Billups vid right in the comments who I trust much more then Melo or George and he basically called out George about as nicely as he possibly could as being the main reason with those out of bounds plays.

Not a good look for George in anyway not that Melo is innocent.

Denver. Melo called him out when he went to NY. JR called him a snake and called him out. Kenyon still calls him a snake to this day. Iguodala has nothing good to say about him. Cousins called him a (bleep) outright in a podcast. Kemp wanted to leave Seattle because of him. And him and Payton clashed in Seattle at the end as well as in Milwaukee which is why he looked for other teams and became a free agent and a Laker. Him and Cassell also had words before over knowing what it took to win, with Sam playing the I got rings and you don’t card which is why he ended up shipped out too. Him and Iverson were feuding in his last days as a nugget but being it was Iverson, he caught the media blame

Yo! That was out of site, out of mind. I totally forgot he forced his way out of Denver. I just remembered him going to NY. LOL! Forgot what a nasty divorce it was.
