    Default Marcus Morris takes shot at Melo'

    Melo takes fire from NBA draft pick

    Marcus Morris, the 14th overall pick by the Houston Rockets, has compared himself to Carmelo Anthony -- already a bit of a stretch -- and when he was introduced to the Houston media after Thursday's NBA Draft, he acknowledged that comparison and then added this:

    "But I'm not going to take after him on the defensive side."


    Whenever the 2011-12 season begins, circle the first meeting with the Rockets on the calendar. But perhaps instead of just exacting personal revenge, Melo should realize that this isn't an isolated opinion about his game. Players respect Melo's ability to score, but he is lacking a star's respect when it comes to the complete game. If he cares at all about his rep, especially how younger players view him, this has to change.

    To his credit, Carmelo did improve his effort, focus and determination on the defensive end when he arrived in New York, but there's a lot more work to be done before he is considered a good defender. It's one thing to get up in someone's face and hound them, but it's another to play good, solid positional defense with a strong understanding of, and committment to, the team concept.

    And, of course, it helps to be in great shape.

    Melo is going to rip this guy to shreds when the Rockets come to town.

    Screw the article, screw the other players,and the screw Marcus Morris.

    Melo aint got to prove a god damm thing to nobody."He needs to change if he wants the younger talents to respect him" who gives a f*ck what the younger, nondeserving talents think of Carmelo. His offence is unmatchable and he can be a lock down defender when he has too. This guy got drafted to the Rockets...lol the Rockets.Have fun in bum town

    People are stupid he plays very good defense when he wants to, i wish he was more consistent on the defensive end myself but at the same time I cant blame him for taking nights off against average or below teams during the regular season

    Heres the video where he said it. Just a case of foot in the mouth if you ask me, he's a quiet soft spoken kid but Melo should school him if they get matched up when we play the Rox.

    you bet....Melo is gonna dunk in his face

    Melo plays defense when he wants to, like Amare and both have great potential to play defense but the coaching staff doesnt get on them for not playing good defense so they are inconsistent.

    With Tom Thibodeo Melo and Amare are good defenders, with Mike D they are hit or miss

    Indeed Carmelo and Amar'e have ridiculous length and athleticism so they can play good defense when they actually PLAY DEFENSE.

    We need to get a COACH who STRESSES this ****. Look at Amar'e, Amar'e has never had a defense-emphasizing coach in his entire life...

    he had Terry Porter in Phoenix and that was his worst days as a pro. He was completely lost in slow-paced system. He is only good in up-tempo basketball put him on a team like Lakers or Bulls and he would be useless.
