    It looks like he has arthritis in all his joints. All of them.

    Melo looked great and was active on D. So far so good...and I was very skeptical

    Carmelo has a chance to make this Rockets team special. If he stays motivated, watch out NBA. I think he should start at the 4 with Tucker at the 3. He adds another dimension this team has never had. I don't think you can start Ennis and Tucker together IMO.

    He may not be the greatest defender, but now teams have to actually defend the 3 or 4 position, whichever he plays at. None of our 3 or 4 position players have been able to create/score at the caliber Carmelo has, even if he is somewhat past his prime. He is still an offensive beast when he wants to be.

    Ennis is very similar to Ariza. You can definitely start those two together.

    enis is kinda one of my favorites rockets this year already..perhaps because he impressed me a lot playing vs rockets..i kinda see morey also value players that torch us...
    Enis is a much better player than ariza.. dont see how people aint realizing it...ariza has very poor fundamentals of basketball plus enis is more athletic and a lot younger... hes a dynamite

    we could certainly use the extra firepower with so many bodies down

    in vacuum he is perhaps better (at least at some things) but it seems he carries sulkiness ,drama and negativeness wherever he goes..he perhaps just has that bad basketball presence.. a lot of intangibles in a negative sense

    his alleged contributions are not worth having him around

    OBLIGATORY

    Wow, somebody actually left a miss in one of these videos. I was starting to wonder if anybody ever missed a shot.

    I disagree as does 29 other teams who do not want him.
