He is still a troll but he did say that the stage may be too big for Dwight


Howard may comeback and he is recovering from surgery, but i have been disappointed with him so far i admit.

We'll see man. He needs to step up but IMO he's a 2 option on a championship team until he starts making his free throws

Skip Bayless is the man, especially because so many people don't realize/care that he's being paid to be controversial.

Skip is an idiot. I know he's paid to be controversial, but can't he at least try to make it a little less obvious?

Last time you were wrong about basketball was the last time you said Melo is the second best player in the NBA, which was probably 20 minutes ago.

Skip Bayless is to sports as Bill O'Reilly is to news. They're both annoying, obnoxious, loud mouths who are clearly trying to be as controversial as possible for the sake of entertainment and ratings. And for every one thing they're right about, there's a dozen things they completely whiff on.

He's recovering from a major surgery and is adjusting to a new situation.

We can use his poor FT shooting as "proof" that Bayless is right, but I don't think it's that cut and dry.

Also, even if Bayless is right, he only originally said this stuff to be controversial. Everyone gets lucky every once in a while...Bayless does so less frequently than most though.

You're entitled to your opinion, but your opinion sucks. To say something like "Melo is the second best player in the league", you have to have legitimate evidence to back that up. What evidence to you have? Lebron, Durant, Paul, Kobe (and others) numbers are far superior. And it's not like Melo's numbers have been great in the past or that he has team accomplishments to hang his hat on.

Melo has played a bit better this year and New York as a team has played better. But if I'm making a list of the 10 best players in the NBA, I'm not sure he cracks my top 10.

top 10 lol cocaine is a helluvadrug. Kobe is jackin shots n his team is loseing i fu watch lakers games its easy to see that the other teams dont double kobe they let him go one on one and he gets his 30 and no1 else is involved. Lebron i admit is better as much as i hate him. Durant and Melo are neck and neck but Durant has alot more help so its tough to say if durant didnt have such a great team around him and the other teams focus was only on him how great would he be. Cp3 is great but give me a 6'8 bully who can beat u anywhere on the court over a little pg anytime look how deep clippers team is and the knicks record is better early. Melo should win his 2nd player of the month in a row. There should not even be a discussion about melo being ranked lower then 3 soon u will learn. #3tothedome

It's a Twitter thing, man. If you want your tweets to get noticed, you add a "#" and type in something that will get it noticed within certain searches. For example, I cover high school sports and when I tweet from games, I tweet #txhsfb. It's very common among people who cover high school sports, so people are more likely to see my tweets.

Edit: But it's worth noting that it has caught on outside of Twitter to become sort of a societal thing. People will do it on Facebook or other social networking sites. I've seen people do it often to make a joke.

If your going by this season and how guys are playing right now and not their reps from the past, than your list would be bad, cause no way Melo is not top 10 right now.

As much as I hate Kobe, you can't blame him for the team's failures or the coaches inability to plan for this roster. And his numbers this year are among the best in his entire career. He's without question a more efficient scorer this season than Melo.


Durant and Melo are neck and neck but Durant has alot more help so its tough to say if durant didnt have such a great team around him and the other teams focus was only on him how great would he be.
This is total crap. Durant's numbers are superior to Melo's in every feasible way. He's a better scorer, shooter, rebounder, distributor, shot blocker, defender and I bet he makes a better cup of tea, too. You're basing a player's skill or talent on how much talent is on his team. That's ********. If you do your job well and your coworkers also do their job well, does that mean you do your job less well? Of course not, and that's what argument you're trying to make.


Cp3 is great but give me a 6'8 bully who can beat u anywhere on the court over a little pg anytime look how deep clippers team is and the knicks record is better early.
Again, you're basing a player's skill on team success, which is totally ridiculous considering that Melo has never played in an NBA Finals game. Quit paying attention to the players around them and look solely at the players themselves. Melo scores and rebounds at a higher clip, but Paul's far more efficient and his distribution skills alone make him an absolutely better basketball player than Melo, whose AST/TO ratio is below 1.0. Pathetic.


Melo should win his 2nd player of the month in a row. There should not even be a discussion about melo being ranked lower then 3 soon u will learn. #3tothedome
I will learn nothing. Melo is not and probably has never been one of the five best players in the NBA. He is a high volume scorer with a wildly inconsistent outside shot who rarely passes and plays mediocre defense. His efficiency has improved this year thanks to his outside shot improving, but that will not last.

That makes him what, the Kesha of sports analysis? Frankly I don't need staged controversy to enjoy my bball. I'd rather have somebody with something insightful to say than a character. It's like watching the Onion sports but with somebody that takes it really really serious.

...which is not to say that he's wrong about everything. I just think that most people on PSD could make generalizations and act like we invented the wheel each time. Plus we'd probably all be more easy to palate in the interim.

Based SOLELY on the start of this young season, I would put Melo in the top 10, somewhere in the 6-8 range probably behind Lebron, Durant, Paul, Kobe and Timmy. But teams haven't even played a quarter of the season yet, and if we're going based on the last 3-5 years, Melo doesn't sniff my top 10. ESPN's ranking of 17 was totally justified based on play from previous seasons.

He calls scores and can be very close. Dude knows sports, and he says it in your face. He seems to understand the mental aspect of the games that us number whores can't.
