The only way Carmelo can get his respect from ESPN is if we keep winning but Melo's gotta play hard for himself and for the team, not BSPN.
Yea, maybe Carmelo did shoot too many shots last night but he still scored 30 points and he wasnt disruptive to the offense. His defense should be talked about more but ESPN doesnt know what defense is unless your talking blocks and steals
Love the way the announcers said Melo wants to be compared to LeBron and Wade/Bosh...Don't you think he already should be...lol..Melo gets little respect, its sad
There's 2 things that annoy me with Melo:
1. He shoots too many 3's. He is too talented from Midrange and In to settle for 3's. He needs to post up and just dominate inside the arc.
2. The most annoying thing about Melo is when he doesnt get a call he doesn't get back on defense. This hurts the team obviously and sets a bad example.
Well, maybe because he hasn't earned it yet?
Wade: 2 chips, once lost in the finals, once in the ECF;
LeBron: chip, twice L in the finals, once ECF;
Bosh: chip, once L in the finals.
Melo: once to the WCF.
@BigAppleSports I agree that Melo too often spends time complaining after a non call and takes his time getting back on defense. Saw it a couple times last night and it irritated me.
@Red yeah that was also too many 3's for my liking as well but they just took what Miami was giving them.
If your comparing Wade and Carmelo directly to eachother i dont think theres much of a difference at this point. Back in 06 yea, Wade was a beast but injuries have slowed him down some. Bron carried the team last year, and Carmelo > Bosh

I agree with u guys about this as well, he was very lucky he didnt get T'd up at all last nite. Other then that his defense was really good but hes just gotta get back and stop complaining

Way to go, Knicks! :beer:
P.S. I can't believe some of you are criticizing Melo.
Does it matter if he shoots too many 3's as long as "the" team wins?
nope, I don't think its necessary to criticize Melo. The teams winning, they stomped the Heat. Let em play.
