and how can you call Melo a ball hog then give Iverson props lmao

The part u missed in my post, were Iverson, Billups, and Jason Kidd exceptional talent improve their teammates talent in a lineup to where their backcourt partners performance were star caliber (u do recall JJ Barea, Terry, and Kidd getting rings).
When a team plays exceptional well in the regular season to win above 50 games, thats all good.
Butt when a team makes it to the FINALS .. that mean the TEAM played on the Next-Level of NBA B,ball.

As for Iverson being considered a ball-hog .. when a player have Iverson's top notch speed, and the best cross-over u ever witness, plus average 6 to 8 assist per game on 47% FG shooting with 7 to 9 trips to the line from getting knocked in the stands on fastbreak baskets .. thats not Ball-Hogging, thats the new logo "The NBA is Exciting"...
