    ESPN Ranking: Melo ranked at #64 of top 100 players; Lonzo #63

    http://www.sportingnews.com/nba/news...f1fdnt3og4cecc

    The sheer disrespect for Melo is absurd right now by some of these media outlets.. That's just pathetic. They had Wade at like 90, too. What!

    Why is Melo's ESPN ranking such a big deal every year? It's 2017. Carmelo is not an elite player by any stretch of the imagination. Is the mid 30 year old one-dimensional inefficient scorer who hasn't been to the playoffs in half a decade top 25 to you? Lol? The funny thing is he always proves his low-ish ranking to be correct, or an overstatement.

    Just lost all credibility. I mean you can't be serious with these rankings. Covington, Bradley, Ball, Danny Green, Gordon all better than Melo??

    Actually Wade didn't make the top 100, every ESPN list is terrible though. It's every year and their all time list is garbage too. There's not near 100 players better than Wade in the league.

    I'll take Bradley over Melo if he's healthy but everyone else is just laughable. I mean, Danny Green is literally a 3&D guy who plays best off the bench and Ball has potential but it seems they are already misguided on where to judge him. Covington.. lol, dude is just a defender at this point.

    My bad, on Sports Illustrated, Wade is like 90th. He's like two spots ahead of robin Lopez.. HAHA

    This basically sums it up. Dude doesn't make his teammates better, plays with zero heart and intelligence, doesn't play an defense, and is an inefficient chucker and ball stopper.

    All that being said, he's still much better than Danny Green and Robert Covington - which automatically makes ESPN's list a gigantic joke.

    Honestly, I actually think at this point of each of their careers, Danny Green brings more intangibles to the table. Better shooter, better defender, moves the ball to the open guy, doesn't force anything in Pop's system, is highly intelligent. Everything that Carmelo isn't.

    Melo isn't good enough to be a volume scorer on a good team and that's all he brings skill set wise. He'd beat guys like Danny Green, Avery Bradley, Covington, etc. one on one but those guys do more tonhelpbteams won.

    Advanced stats help in some areas but imo have ruined the way players are viewed. It shows so much on lists like these, literally every list and I can't tell you the amount of terrible takes I see from NBA reporters on twitter.

    Most recent terrible takes:

    JR Smth is better than Devin Booker because he has a higher VORP

    Jokic is a top 10 player in the league.

    Comparing Jokic advanced stats to LeBron and Jordan's their first 2 years in the league to try and show Jokic is or will be on that level.
