    Remember this Stephen Hyperbole A. Smith? See how you change your tune once the season starts. You have zero understanding of the game. I never wanted any parts of Melo in LA. Not when he was with the Knicks. And definitely not now.

    Thank you Stephen A about time someone put some respect on my boy melo name tf the disrespect was getting out of hand like last time I check melo is still better than Trevor and mbah and he only look bad cuz he was playing with two guys in Westbrook and pg who are only looking for their own shots they don’t care if melo is getting looks cp3 and harden are going to abuse melo offensive abilities and I strongly believe melo is going to have a good year but gtfoh with that disrespect melo is still a good player in this league smh idiots

    Why dismiss his time with the knicks? If anything that was where Carmelo got exposed and ppl began to realize he’s a ball stopper. A bad defender. Even a bad teammate.

    Rockets lose in 5 if iggy healthy. Rockets were not close to warriors last year, and rockets got worse this summer.

    Melo+Cp3 +Harden is not a superteam not even close considering 2/3 of the core three are way past their prime, they not beating the GSW. Westbrook and PG13 got a better chance at beating the Warriors than Houston would.
