    I've always thought Screaming A was a little entertaining ... but recently his shtick has worn thin

    I mean, just from a pure cost-benefit persepctive its worth it to give Melo at least a few more games....

    But if Melo is being a little bitch behind the scenes then i agree. If Melo is productive enough to even be in the rotation this year it will be because of Harden and Paul setting him up with the best looks of his life .... he should have 0 power in our locker room

    This is the best way to phrase my reaction. Its like SAS is just ****ing with people with some of these takes.

    Just start Melo so he thinks he's a starter. The mentality of a bench player obviously affects him for some reason. Starting doesn't mean sh-t. CP3 starts then sits after the first couple minutes.

    Nah , don't indulge this baby . I'd rather cut him than give him the satisfaction of starting .

    If he starts to earn it ... then that's one thing .... but don't give him a starting spot just because he whines for it .

    Setting a strong defensive tone early is key ... granted we ****ed that up last night ... but I like our chance of doing that a lot better with ennis than with Melo

    SAS is a buffoon - but Melo should start... the dude is here on a sweetheart deal to up his value before his next contract... to not have him start hurts his 'brand image'... The whole concept may seem stupid to many - but thats the business - and the NBA is a business...

    and those that want to say he's washed - can stfu... didnt hear ya runnin your mouth while he looked good all preseason - but 1 crappy game (where pretty much everybody cept PJ sucked) and y'all wanna revive the rhetoric... smh... some people are just ingrates... the man is here on a min deal - be appreciative...

    He's getting paid like 20 million in buyout money .....

    He's here on a minimum deal because that's all he's worth .

    If he wants to build back up his value he will have to show he can be a good role player .

    How can you be so off ?

    sweetheart deal? nobody else was rushing to sign melo. the worst team in the league dumped him. he wasn't signing some significant deal anywhere else. the worst idea is to give a player what they want because he whines. is melo the only one that would like to start on this team? lets show EG can whine or GG can whine so they can start. You dont hear a peep from them. they repeatedly let it be known whatever the team needs from them. This melo drama is just unnecessary and distracting. And for a non star stupid.

    be appreciative? no, he's the one who should be appreciative that an actual really good team is giving him a chance to revive his career. if he sucks here, it just solidifies what many brought up as issues in endless posts. he's no longer a good player and his ego refuses to accept it

    preseason lol. some of yall need to let that stuff go. mcw looked good in preseason. who cares. he sucks when actual competition starts and not playing against

    Naw bro, it's you who's off...
    True he's got his buyout money in his back pocket - so taking a min contract aint hurtin him... but he chose to come to the Rox. How often is everybody cryin on here cause so-n-so snubbed us,,, well here's a guy that chose to come here - on a cut rate deal and people wanna disrespect...smh...
    If you honestly believe that a min deal is all Melo is worth - then Idk what to tell you... if you dont think he (and Boogie) took less money to pick their destination - then yer wrong. You honestly think that if he told DM he wanted a piece of our MLE, DM woulda passed - get real...

    How is saying he had to earn a starting spot being disrespectful.

    Lol who is crying that people don't wanna come here ? CP3 wanted to come here . Dwight wanted to come here . Once we got a star player in harden .... other players want to come here .

    Of course Melo picked his destination and wanted to come here .... it doesn't mean that I have to suck him off . MCW and James ennis also wanted to come here ... so they deserve respect and a starting spot because of it ?

    Melo has to prove he still has it . This is a what have you done for me lately league

    What was Melo's actual 'fair market value' at the beginning of the offseason?

    5% said he was a min player...
