    Default Melo's attitude

    What do you guys think about our primary scorer's attitude on and off the court?

    I think he has some more maturing to do before he ever reaches the mointain top.

    The year the nuggets went to the WCF, his attitude towards approaching the game, and life, improved.He became a team player and averaged a career low 24-something ppg after winning gold in Beijing.

    But after that deep playoff run, he seems to be back to the immature Melo.

    I wouldn't say he's back to that same immature kid, but it does rear it's ugly head at times.

    He's really no different than Lebron. Egomaniacal and self-involved. Don't kid yourself. If Melo had the chance to do "The Decision", he would.

    I think you guys are right about Melo's continued attitude issues, but I do think that he's grown up enough that, unlike some other star athletes, he knows when to back off and say the right thing before a situation really gets too far out of control.

    That trip really changed him, he cut the braids and he became more of a team player, however sometimes it shows, he needs to learn how to be a better leader before we make a deep playoff run, so when they win the Olympics again next year we'll win the title!!!

    The difference between Melo and Lebron is that James is much better basketball player in every aspect of the game. Other than that you're right with everything you said.

    For me: It's the tale of two Melos.

    Sometimes he looks/seems like an immature kid, he has an attitude and not in a good way.

    But sometimes he gets into that "**** You" Mode...when he feels as if he is being overlooked he gets mad, and plays madder. He did it at the beginning of the 2009-10 season, he had this look in his eye.

    What I am hoping is that having a guy like Amare in the lockerroom night in-night out will keep Melo focused. Because when he gets that look, he can be the best 1-on-1 scorer in the league.

    Nah, that's an exaggeration. Lebron would kill for Melo's shot and non-chokingness.

    Mid range jumper? 3 point shot? Clutch ability? Post ability?

    My favorite move on the court and Melo's signature post move.

    LeBron got smoked!

    Plus, look at Balkman's outfit on the bench! Now that's what I'm talkin bout!
