Interesting statistical analysis of Melo's slump/decline

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/fe ... o-anthony/

I stand by what I said last season, he could contribute on a non contender that needs scoring (cue Melo to the Knicks rumours), but he's not part of a top tier rotation anymore. And as for the Lakers, the last thing they need is another non defending patchy shooter.


Why would any non-contender want that, though? They would be bringing in something of a cancer, deprive younger players of playing time and end up with a worse draft pick as a result.

Good point, well made.

I never really thought he was good tbh. Just a high volume scorer. But from playing for USA he seems to be boys with a lot of good players around his age so I’m sure he will land on a team he really doesn’t improve.

He was OK with the Nuggets for a couple years, but in general you're right. And it's his inability to adapt to any role other than lead scorer that shows what a selfish player he always has been. Compare that to Vince Carter who is still kicking around as a great teammate and role model for younger players, last year in Sacramento and now in Atlanta.

Rondo out for at least a month with a broken hand. Lonzo should unpack his bags as he won't be getting traded just yet.

Meanwhile, the NBA top scorers list just got updated:

1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - 38,387
2. Karl Malone - 36,928
3. Kobe Bryant - 33,643
4. Michael Jordan - 32,292
5. Lebron James - 31,425
6. Wilt Chamberlain - 31, 419

What do people think of this kid Zion Williamson from Duke? He reminds me of a 2m tall Charles Barkley.

Williamson is ridiculously athletic for his size and obviously strong AF. He reminds me of LeBron in terms of physicality at such a young age though he obviously doesn't have close to the same skill level or basketball IQ. He'll be a beast in the NBA but he'll need to evolve beyond just relying on his athletic talent if he's gonna be truly elite. Basically, he's not Barkley yet - he's a stronger Blake Griffin.

Looks like an amazing athlete especially considering his weight. He can jump out of the gym even carrying that mass but his passing and shooting look better than advertised so far too.

Duke might have the top 3 players in the draft which is pretty crazy.

Pels just decided they do give a fuck in the 4th quarter to comeback and beat the Knicks

But what a disgraceful effort (continuing on from the Wolves game). AD included, even though his stats look great

Love the W, but part of me wishes they had been absolutely flogged

Elf came back from injury and promptly broke his finger on a foul x(

Poor Elf - that's rotten luck.

I'm on the Suns at +6. Russ, Ferg, and Abrines, are all out! :lol:

No backup 2 worth shit, and they have to play next to Felton... :uhoh:

Much better from the Big Birds!

Especially with Jrue sitting most of the 3rd in foul trouble. Randle brought the heat on D

AD with a much more earned 40pts and 8 assists :shock: There's no real PG when Jrue sits now. Might have to address that...

He was there for shoot-around in the morning, but had to leave due to a personal matter.

Hopefully, if everything is OK on the home front, he'll be back next game - along with Ferguson + Abrines.

Just saw the highlights of the Charlotte v Philadelphia game.

Kemba is an UFA next year right? He's picked the right year to step it up and surely he's not gonna resign with Charlotte? I know they've always said they won't trade him unless it's for another All Star, but if it's a choice between letting him walk for nothing?

Surely he's got some ambitions of actually playing on a contending team though? Or at least a playoff team?

He's always spoken about loyalty and being a one team guy

Latest quote from less than 2 months ago:
Quote:
“This is where I want to be. I don’t want to be nowhere else. I want to create something special here in Charlotte, something we’ve never had here: I want to create some consistency.”

...Good luck with that, cause I don't see anything other than mediocrity for them as a small market team that's too good to get a high draft pick.

Maybe. He's currently underpaid his market value ($12M p/a) so may do a Carmelo and choose money over winning. If so, I assume the Hornets have the inside running on securing him if they offer him the max.

Wiz are trying to blow it up - finally:

Also, just flew into Sac today. Still smoky as hell here. Would be a good time to shoot a post-apocalyptic movie.

Adams is sooo MF strong he gets a technical for breaking up a fight. And when Cauley-Stein tried to shove him, he ended up just pushing himself further into the crowd!

Russ-Schroder lineups will suck all year, and they're gonna play a ton together.

It's gonna screw this team over.

Kings remain fun. They should have won by more...

Wizards home crowd booing them is a bit rich.

They are typically a garbage crowd and if a big team is in town it's usually a home game for the away side. Players should tell em to get fuked




Anyone else still watching these guys? :o
