    Default One thing about Bron & Wade

    They hustle 100% of the time when they're out on the court. I reckon most superstars do this.

    I watched Melo last night standing right next to an opposing player at half court, he takes off and Melo is jogging behind him. NO EFFORT. I watched STAT not even jump for a rebound late in the game and the other team scores, thwarting an attempted comeback. NO EFFORT.

    What separates superstars from the rest is talent. ALONG WITH DRIVE, INTENSITY AND EFFORT. Although Melo and STAT have talent, they are severely lacking in the other things.

    They're playing the game SOFT...

    The difference between Wade/Bron and Amar'e/Melo is the former cares more about winning titles while the latter cares more about making money.

    Shooting 40% can be look pass if you play your ass off to help the team. Rebound, block, steal, hand in the face etc. Melo does nothing!!! Please take out the trash before the trading deadline.

    Those 2 work their asses off on defense, yea Lebron cant close out games for sh*t but i dont question his desire to win. He took less money to play with the Heat, our stars are very lazy on defense. They used to be great on offense, now their not even good compared to where they were last year or especially 2 years ago at this time.

    The above is so true however, NBA expectation already have the Miaimi Heat
    Big-3 winning the 2011-12 Championship title....they have been the top team to beat
    for 2 seasons.

    $$$ players "Stat & Melo" know they have to go to the FINALS within the next 4
    seasons with the signing of Tyson Chandler. But it wont be with a clueless-Dantoni.
    Phil Jackson is to old for the traveling....but a headcoach with Jax type of
    personality/wisdom (Pop, Sloan, Carlisle, Scott) would have Melo, Stat, and
    Tyson fighting hard in the 7th game of the Eastern Conference Finals in 2012-13 season.

    Unfortunately not everyone has the drive to excel in his profession. It takes a lot of discipline and sacrifice. We have to deal with the reality that neither Melo nor Stat has that kind of personality to maximize his potentials. They will forever be underachievers.

    THANK YOU. This is what I've been WATCHING CONSTANTLY.

    Did you see early in the 1st quarter where the rebound falls toward Melo - but because he isn't hustling. I think it was Boozer? HE sprints from UNDER THE HOOP - to where Melo is just STANDING. And takes the rebound.

    This happened SO MUCH.

    I noted this passionately when Eliysova (bucks) did this twice --- sooo clutch --- against us in the 4th.


    Talent without Effort Syndrome.

    Those huge SALARIES - no pressure to perform. Win or Lose - Max Cats - RRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIICHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. FILTHY.

    I have no problem with talented individuals making money - but not performing up to their compensation? As they are now - I don't even consider them leaders based on their actions. Despite whatever they may say - actions speak louder than words.




    * I'm going to be watching today's game to see if Melo and Amare have glue stuck to their feet. Some slo-mo walking. Ripple effect, Melo ends up fouling stupidly when he gets caught slacking off. Scouting reports from other teams note this.


    * This thread should be stickied - this is key and ruins the momentum and energy of the team - you know this is affecting the other teammates and Tyson Chandler. The guys fighting it out wearing a freaking cast and still plays with incredible pain - CATCHES passes in the air for DUNKS. And.. the very next play there goes Melo walking down the court. Watching Taj Gibson snag another rebound - or telling someone else to cover his man. Don't get me wrong. Here and there you suddenly see Melo's ability-to-hustle. HE CAN HUSTLE. SEEN it ONCE A GAME. LOL.

    What annoys me is only when he wants to - he gets very pissy early on, turns into a problem-child.

    Wade and Lebron are the best at their position in terms of passing and defense.

    We can't say that about Melo and Amare.

    Passing and defense are probably the two most important aspects of the game, and we're not strong in neither.
