    Melo was a top 3 player most of his career so to say "he's not what he use to be" is deceiving. Aside from Kobe and Lebron...there was Melo, he did his thing up until he got to OKC where he was playing with the NBA's biggest ball hog in Westbrook and an All-Star in PG. I'm looking for Melo to shut up some critics after this season

    I need some answers here... what better option do the Rockets have? They lost SF in Ariza and Mbah a Moute. But they got Melo for $2.4M. Does Melo worth to the Rockets? $2.4M man C'mon now... what do they gotta do? Trade for KD?

    He didn't run D'Antoni out. They were losing & he quit. Woodson stepped in & they started winning. Stop

    I like Melo but he's washed until he realizes he's no longer Melo and can accept a new role.

    Carmelo should still come off the bench. Defense was a huge part in the reason why the Rockets were up 3-2 on the Warriors last year. If Ariza never left Houston, I don't think the Rockets would even want Carmelo.
