    He's right...he came in and did exactly what we asked him to do. Turns out he sucks at it. Not his fault, he did his best, he did what he was told, he played his role. He just wasn't good enough, and he's still not. There's a reason no serious playoff team wanted him. He's capable of having good games occasionally but they're few and far between.

    What does Melo mean by "it was already planned out like that." Does he mean him playing from the bench, or us pulling the plug to get Bzdelik back?

    What a victim. Probably needs @rocketchamp shoulder to cry on.

    If I were ever inclined to try to play basketball I would try every thing in my power to learn how to be an efficient spot up 3 shooter.

    As Vince Carter, Jason Kidd and many other players who've shown that athleticism can only take you so far. If you can at least spread the defense by separating the defenders you can be effective for a long time in the league.

    Doesn't help that Melo never bothered to challenge himself to being a consistent defender either, doesn't help with a switch heavy defense if you can't play any defense in that scheme

    Didn’t watch, assuming he’s still a victim of something.

    Melo went AWOL on the team, it should of been considered maternity leave. He needs pampers, diapers and all the cool stuff babies need.

    dude got paid $27m last year. what a disingenuous whine of his.

    I'm sure he said privately to someone (his agent?) last year, "fck it. I'm getting paid. If no contender wants me, I just won't play." Then let's see what players say about that.

    And that's coming from someone who liked him more than most (but not for us last year).

    I'm so sick of this stupid ass narrative they've been trying to push. I mean seriously, how many iterations of this story have we heard by now? They really make it seem as if he was this perfect player and teammate before he got to Houston and we screwed everything up for him.

    We gave this bum a chance when no one else would but sure, he needs to get "revenge" on us lol.

    i wonder if the same revenge logic applied when he went back to okc last year. then proceeded to go scoreless up until a garbage score at the end of the game that okc let him have

    Nothing else to report on?

    He was a professional the whole time he was here. It could have been a complete circus but he just left with his head high. I respect him for that.

    Is his “I did nothing wrong” in response to getting traded or in response to being immediately waived after being traded?

    Media would not be giving Melo this press redemption tour if he never played for the Rockets. They just want to stick it to us.

    Didnt do anything his entire career other than chuck away inefficiently.

    One of the most overrated and selfish players in my 3+ decades of watching NBA.

    I have no idea why Morey was infatuated with this clown.
