    Honest question about Melo and Lebron

    Why do people hate LeBron for leaving Cleveland, but don't hate Melo for forcing his way out of Denver?

    I think a lot of people hate Melo for the way he clawed his way out of Denver. And I think the LeBron hatred is based on (1) him being the best player in the world and (2) the manner in which he announced his departure.

    Melo didn't collude with 2 other stars in their prime and publicly dump his previous team on national tv. Don't people actually see the difference or is this to pretend he never did anything wrong in the first place and to showcase Lebron as a victim here

    Melo honestly isn't good enough to field the hate that Lebron gets.

    Yeah nice try, Melo told the team " trade me and get something cuz Im not gonna resign" in advance to becoming a FA and Denver got a NICE collection of talent for him. You telling me thats the same thing Lebron did? Ok

    First off, people dont love that melo did that, its still a blimish, but there is a diference between a guy playing in Denver, when the guy is from NY, and wants to play in a big city, and never really wanted to be in Denver, as well, his team was not very good, and could not consistantly get him to the playoffs. and a guy, lebron, who had the best record in the nba, left to go form a super team with his buddies wade and bosh, and win rings, especaily considering that he was drafted by cleveland, his home town, and the ****** way he went about leaving.

    Melo, also gave the Dever Nuggets some compensation by leaving the way he did as well.

    You know Lebron did a sign n trade right? So Cleveland ended up getting a few first round picks.

    AMAZING! Come on bro. We know they got a couple of late first round picks (and a trade exception which I think netted them Kyrie Irving by way of absorbing Baron Davis). But think of the haul the Cavs could have gotten if they had traded him mid-season.
