After watching how LeBron dominated the Finals by facilitating the offense through the post, I couldn't help but think how good Carmelo and the Knicks would be if the Knicks set up offense like that. He obviously would have to really start looking for other people as well and stop shooting every time he touches the ball. But, he is a huge bully on the block.

He's obviously not as fast as LBJ but he's a much better outside shooter as seen against Nigeria. He isn't known as a passer at all, but it's not like he can't pass - he can EASILY average 5+ assists a game especially if he were to operate out of the post. He can rebound.

I'm saying this, because I think out of all the other superstars in the league, he currently has the most skills and physical tools to be able to dominate a game like LeBron does. I don't know anyone else as strong, skilled, athletic as LBJ than Carmelo.

Thoughts?

The Knicks tried to feature Melo in a point forward role, it worked out pretty bad.

:facepalm: at the guy that said he is top 5. Do you not realize he came off the worst season of his career? On topic no, he is what 28?29? Lbj Durant will be 1-2 for a long long time. Melo can possibly move up to top 7-10 if he goes off this year. He has just as much talent as durant and as Bron but he never got to his potential. Its sad, I still believe he can win a championship as a number 1 option.

Oh and all the moves the Bulls made this offseason, def makes them a better team. (that was sarcasm...i know Bulls fans need the explanation)

I just don't see him ever being good enough on the defensive end to be a top 2 player.

Nor is he a good enough playmaker, he just doesn't have passing instincts.

That said, he is still a top 3 scorer in the NBA. When he plays up to his potential he is so dangerous because of his pull up, face-up game, and ability to back defenders down and finish in the paint. He really has all the tools you need from a scorer, he'll just never be on Lebron's level.

this thread assumes that LeBron or someone else will always be the number one player in the league... players get injured, players fall off... no one is immune. tmac, Roy, hill etc... melo has potential to be the best in the league, especially if he defends and starts shooting over 47%

I honestly think Carmelo is one of the most overrated players in the league. Yes, the man can score practically at will. But beyond that, he doesn't bring much else to the table. Hes a very one dimensional player. As long as thats the case he wont crack top 7-8 in my opinion.

don't hate on Nate and Marco. they are i good offense off the bench. If rose comes back at 100 percent that could be contenders come playoff time. I have predicted they will be 6 and Knock out Indy in round 1. Ill :cry: if NYK vs them in the 1st round .

Pretty sure it was him who commented in the General thread about beer he drinks. He said 40's trying to be funny. Way to know the back story.

*Note- I am pretty sure it was Flashbush that said it. Not going to research that long *** thread.

Also how is it racist? I am pretty sure anyone can drink 40's. He also said he was from the hood, and that is a pretty common alcoholic beverage there.

He has had almost 10 years to become the best. He has never done so. So unless there is a huge epedemic of ACL tears, decapitations, and assassinations it wont happen.

Talent wise? he can do it all. If he ever put his stubborn *** tmind to say hey lets play lockdown defense he could do it. He is also a underrated passer and a soild rebounder. When healthy and in the right mind set he has all the talent in the world to be up there with anybodyu. I think its too late for him to be top 5. I will say if he comes in motivated(I believe he will) He could average 28 on 47 percent shooting. Man is unguardable when motivated.

I might give him top 5 but its close.

He's a great scorer but he doesn't defend or pass well enough to ever be a top 2 player.

Carmelo can finally become an ELITE NBA player, but top 2 NBA player is something earned throughout the years in my opinion. You just dont suddenly become the top 2 player in the NBA. Those in the running are Paul, Howard, Durant.

I think a better thread would be "will Carmelo ever be MVP"

The thread should be changed to "which delusional knicks fans think Melo could be a number 2"

I mean honestly, you don't just learn to play defense in one season. Kobe and LeBron came into the league raw defensive wise and it took them years to learn the body control to dominate that end of the floor. Melo hasn't shown progress, he has platued....It isn't a bad thing, he is still a capable defender but not good enough to push him to be a #2 player in the league.

After 9 years in the league it's unlikely that Melo is going to all of a sudden decide to change his game. It's possible, but I wouldn't bet on it.
There are younger talented guys coming into the league every year. Even if the current guys drop off, there will be new ones to take their place.
Melo has peaked and will most likely will contine to drop off a little each year. I don't see him ever being among the top 5 players in the league again.

When did I ever say that?

I was born in Georgia on Warner Robbins AFB. I moved to Chicago when I was 2 months old. I grew up in an apartment complex in Lindenhurst (outside of Gurnee). Then my dad got a job at WW Granger in Chicago and we moved to a complex in Oak Lawn. Then back Lindenhurst then to Kenosha Wisconsin. Then I moved to Jacksonville and lived there for some time. Then back to Chicago. Then Germany for the Air Force. Then Iowa to finsih college. Now Afghanistan working for a government contractor.

No. I work with Northrop. I am not worried about the war wrapping up in Afghanistan. My job has a stateside purpose as well. I just like being out here get 3.5x my base salary. Nothing better than being my age not having a house payment, car payment and 2 529B college accounts taken care of for my kid(s).

Much better than living in the hood.

You have never been to Afghanistan have you? I would check it out, this place is a cash cow and when on base nothing happens. I have to do helo rides to different FOBs every now and again and this place is only scary on the news.

You right it is a cash cow,but you are crazy if you think it's safe.You wasn't over there when it was real bad and they were shooting and blowing up everything.It's calm now because the war is over and Obama sent most of the troops home.

Yeah it got a little hairy in the Kandahar region in the mid-2000's. It has calmed down a lot from what I have read and heard.

And don't be so sure we are really pulling out in 2014. From what I am seeing over here, US will have its footprint here for much longer. The amount of infrastructure being built on some of these bases makes it seem like there are plans of a Korea type base.

Melo isn't even the 2nd best player in his draft class, let alone the NBA.

Having said that, Melo is much, MUCH better as a PF with a passing PG dominating the ball. When he's given the ball in the high post he can beat just about any PF off the dribble, and he's a good catch and shoot guy from all over the court. It's those 20ft turnaround fadeaway jumpers with a hand in his face that drives everyone nuts. If you find ways to limit his shot selection he's fantastic. He has the strength to guard today's PF's, the only real question mark would be his commitment to rebounding.

op should change thread tittle to when will melo be the best player not number 2 thats like a backwards complement

If you are talking about my comment about changing the thread to "will Melo be mvp ever" then let me explain to you. NBA MVP is NOT the best player in the league award. If it was then the MVP would havve been won by either Kobe or Lebron for the pass 8 years. Derrick Rose won MVP 2 years back but certainly was not the best in the league and Lebron destroyed him the ECF to prove it.

If the Knicks can finish with a top 3 record in the league which is possible if all goes right in regards to chemistry/injuries. And with Melo being our best player averaging about 25ppg along with playing the best defense of his career. Then I would put him as the favorite to win the award.

Look who's talking. As for Melo and Marbury and A.I. (who was my favorite guard in the league in his Sixer days) they are same types. Stephon prbly the smarter on court player. Melo more talented, they are 1 on 1 players, probably will retire w/o a championship, I'll be shocked if Melo is here after his contract is done. When he's gone you'll probably quit posing about being a Knicks fan and disappear like Starbury's fans did.

1) lebron 2) Dwight 3)Durant/Melo 4)Durant/Melo 5) Kobe

Lebron, Durant, Dwight, and CP3 are all definitely better than Melo. Id say hes around 7-8 overall in my book, but others can have other opinions.

Look who's talking. As for Melo and Marbury and A.I. (who was my favorite guard in the league in his Sixer days) they are same types. Stephon prbly the smarter on court player. Melo more talented, they are 1 on 1 players, probably will retire w/o a championship, I'll be shocked if Melo is here after his contract is done. When he's gone you'll probably quit posing about being a Knicks fan and disappear like Starbury's fans did.

this thread assumes that LeBron or someone else will always be the number one player in the league... players get injured, players fall off... no one is immune. tmac, Roy, hill etc... melo has potential to be the best in the league, especially if he defends and starts shooting over 47%

Its assuming all the players ahead of him remain reasonably healthy.


I honestly think Carmelo is one of the most overrated players in the league. Yes, the man can score practically at will. But beyond that, he doesn't bring much else to the table. Hes a very one dimensional player. As long as thats the case he wont crack top 7-8 in my opinion.

What all does Kyrie do other than score? Or even Durant for that matter?


For a quarter of a season maybe. Full season? No.

Lol this statement is so accurate. :laugh2:


I swear if he ever becomes a mod on this board I'll quit.

Who? Justin? :D


Yeah im with KBR,they laid off a lot of workers in 2011.Lucky for me I didn't have trouble paying my bills when I got back home.My house,car was all paid off.I been out of work for almost a year and still have money in my bank account.

I for one do not doubt Carmelo's ability, that is unquestioned. He is definitely among one of the best basketball players in the league. He's got unmatched skill and can score in a way, better then most have ever seen.
Other then LBJ, Kobe, Durant, Rose, few others, there is no player in the league that can rise to his capability,
And in all, it's just a matter of him and the Knicks winning. That's what will allow him to be considered into that category.

:laugh:


Melo isn't even the 2nd best player in his draft class, let alone the NBA.

Having said that, Melo is much, MUCH better as a PF with a passing PG dominating the ball. When he's given the ball in the high post he can beat just about any PF off the dribble, and he's a good catch and shoot guy from all over the court. It's those 20ft turnaround fadeaway jumpers with a hand in his face that drives everyone nuts. If you find ways to limit his shot selection he's fantastic. He has the strength to guard today's PF's, the only real question mark would be his commitment to rebounding.

:clap: was wondering when somebody was going to bring this up. Maybe that's why he plays so good in the Olympics.


:facepalm:




i actually like melo and personally i feel he is underrated and mad disrespected on here. But the knick fans that that act like hes a top 3-5 and some to go as far as best player in the league :speechless: and just make outlandish homer comments they just make me feel like not defending him.

Camelo is not even in the top 7 players in the NBA.

Lebron, Kobe, Durant, Rose, Howard, Dirk, Wade are all players I would rather have than Melo. I would probably even rather have P.Pierce. I have just really ever been sold on Melo. He will never win an MVP. He is just not that caliber of player and to be the second best in the league you gotta be in the running for the award.

Yes the Knicks have yet to produce at the level they're expected to, but to say you'd rather have some of those players and more' is just hate. Melo has been a great player in the NBA and has led his teams to many playoffs.

I don't think so though, Unless he became an elite defender and got his FG% up another 6-8% consistently I don't think he could be a #2, And even if he did those things he probably still wouldn't be #2, there are all-time legend status kind of players in the league right now, And Melo thus far isn't one of them.

His ceiling is being the second most overweight player in the game. I mean, he's not Boris, Felton or Pierce fat but he's getting there.

I said it because he said that with elite defense, Melo would still not be #2 sf. Clearly that is just pure hatred.

SF is more like it, But then depends on how much Durant improves defensively, can't imagine he has peaked at what he's going to do as far as overall. Steadily gotten better rebounding, Shooting has always been great. Defensively is what he is working on most now.

Even if he played lockdown defense he wouldn't be top 2

You sir have not one bit of homerism. All the posts i've seen pretty dead accurate about your team.

If he played defense and passed the ball effectively, that alone i think puts him top 7 and if his effeciency went up he is top 4-5 player easily.

Melo barely cracks the Top 10 right now...

Lebron
Durant
CP3
Dwight
Rose
Kobe
Wade
Love
Melo
Deron

Not a chance he becomes the #2 player in the game. He wont improve by that much anymore.

You mentioned you worked for Northrop Grumman and also mentioned you have been overseas on a military base.

That fact that you work for the military-industrial complex holds more gravitas than the other industries you mentioned. Tell me this, do you see anything wrong with the fact that the corporation you work for most likely gives lobbying money to politicians , who in turn then go out and make sure that America's over-inflated defense budget stays the same. I also can't forget to mention the war mongering by the chickenhawks on capitol hill and by the establishment media.

You work for a defense contractor and war is good business for your company and that is disgusting. You'll continue working in one of the most detestable industries and you'll see nothing wrong with it, human life be damned, you're getting paid and that's all that matters, right? :up:

That's a ridiculous way to look at it... Special interest groups have ran the country since it started... If he didn't work for that company there would still be war, so him working for them changes nothing...

lol at the skinny white boys, wanting everyone to be kevin durant. Melo is not remotely fat, this statement is just idiotic

let me guess though, I'll get modded by the mods just for saying "skinny white boys" while other people can just degrade players all they want, even when they know it's not true.

He did not say anything about "black boys" so yes your "white boys" comment deserves to be modded. Only racist people think in racist terms.. which you just did. So take a look in the mirror before you point fingers and pull the "race" card.

Your post is "just idiotic"..

wrong you are the only one that thought in racist terms. A green worker is an entry level worker, I used "skinny white boy" as an entry level basketball fan. Try again please. It wasn't nothing to do with race but that's probably all you can think about with your hate. Hence why you just brought out "black boy" You think everything is black and white.

How so? Don't need to sit here and tell me he is a talented mother****er. He is my favorite player since cuse. But even if he had lockdown defense he doesn't get past Paul,Dwight. If he played defense and scored more efficently hell Ill be the first one screaming top 5.

Carmelo Anthoney is never gonna be a top 5 player! He is basically Michael Beasley 2.0 that scores, and doesn't get paid enough to play defense......

Woah, Did you just say Beasley 2.0? Melo is one of 3 guys that can be called the best scorer on the planet. Beasley is nowhere in the convo with melo. Melo improved a little on defense last year lets see if he takes another step this year.

You're living in the past, man.

Brooklyn is the center of culture for the world. It has everything and more.

But I guess if you prefer strip malls and Walmart, this isn't the place for you. Better off, we don't need your simple type.

....And this one guy is from LA. New Orleans is very nice, but still doesn't compare as a city.

lol i was joking, I know it is not that bad. It's a little outlandish to say it is the best city in the world with many great cities though. I agree though New Orleans is just a party city It's not even close to being as great as brooklyn. I still couldnt live in brooklyn though, the cost of living is way too high.

Fair enough.

If you live a little off the beaten path (like I do), you can find affordable, nice housing. Still higher than the national average though. I've been to many major cities nationally, fewer internationally, but Brooklyn is unique as a city. And to think, you have Brooklyn standing alone from Manhattan and Queens, both vibrant boroughs in their own right. That's why NYC is the best city in the world. My opinion and the opinion of many, many others.

As for NO, I think it's more than just a party city. Bourbon St. is fun but pretty stupid. There's much more to NO than Bourbon St.
