Wonder where they put Carmelo gotta figure in the 20's
Watch them really disrespect and put Amare outside of the top 100..
If Melo is not top 10, they can expect a very angry letter from me
Melo's April plus Olympic Explosion should thrust him into the top 10 I say as low as 6 as high as 15 BSPN better not bull ****
Amare - between 20-30
Melo - between 15-20
Think Melo might get a higher then normal rating because of the Olympics
Hopefully it's top ten and more important he plays like a top ten player next year
I dont think a player ranked 437 is going to lead any international team into almost beating Team USA....Prigs will open some eyes this year, he is a solid PG that doesnt make mistakes
Put Melo with the lineups Kobe and Lebron has had and you would be talking top 10

I agree with Metro, i do think Melo has repassed Nowitzki and probably Ginobili too but thats real close in my opinion. Ginobili has some of the best intangibles i have ever seen, and hes just a really good all around player. Melo's offense is superior but im not sure if its by enough to make up for Ginobili's superior defense, passing, and team player. And I do think Melo is a good team player and passer himself, i just think Ginobilis better at those things
Not bad...gonna give ESPN's top 10 and what I think it should be

Why Melo gets the slot above Love and why he makes top 10 over Dirk
1.Melo is a Knick and I am biased towards any player who plays for us!!!
2. Melo plays the post better than both despite they both being PF's and Melo being a SF and both have Melo by 2 inches
3. Melo puts the ball on the floor better than both.
4. None of the 3 are lockdown defenders but Melo is actually the best of the 3
5. Melo average 38 pts per game in the 2 games against The Heat....2 desperation games against The Leagues top Defense and eventually NBA Champion. Dirk 25 pts per game at 40% against the runner-up in scenario.
I can't put Love above Melo because Love has never played on a winning team!!! Melo has consistently achieved playoffs berths over his career, and usually they were 50+ win seasons.
At the same time, I can't even consider the case for Melo over Dirk; Dirk has two Finals appearances and One Big Ring, so as long as his drop-off is not very dramatic (and it was not so drastic last season), I think Dirk is still up there in the Top 10.
I think this is Melo's year to earn that Top 10 spot.
this is "Carmelo Season" dude. he's gonna make Lebron cry.
