    It's the fact that he can kinda use the Nets game as a practice game sort of before the big Miami match up...but either way I would liked to have seen him play against Dallas.

    Overall, basketball players today are soft. There are no more Willis Reeds. If they jam their fingers these days, they will sit out for two weeks.
    I disagree. Melo actually played through a wrist and ankle injury for about a week before ultimately deciding to rest until he is fully healthy. I don't know if you've ever played through an ankle sprain, yet alone even walk on one, but that was pretty tough for Melo to play with that type of injury.

    And throughout the league, I can recall some players who played through pretty nasty injuries. Rajon Rondo dislocated his elbow in the playoffs and played the rest of the series anyway, WITHOUT painkillers. Kobe, also, playing with a bad knee, jammed finger(s), sprained wrist which ballooned every after game.

    So no, players these days are not soft at all.
