Clearly Melo is planning to take a massive 50 (thousand) paycut to give the Knicks cap room to go after big stars like Hasheem Thabeet.

OKC made the playoffs last year and were expected to do well. The Knicks were expected to be well below .500 this year, which has come to fruition, but they still have a chance at the playoffs, solely due to Melo.



Ok so a vote for Durant. Understandable, but not the correct choice.
Would you go so far as saying that Melo is having the greatest NBA season of all-time*?

*Not counting guys not named 'Carmelo'

What's even sadder is that people are taking you seriously.
The thing about a JUICE troll is I'm not always sure if it's troll or serious. It's truly a thing of beauty. This thread is amazing, I honestly don't know if he means it or not.

People get delusional about sports teams/players. I would not be surprised at all that he believes it.

obvious trolling. anyone who can't see that either doesn't follow the NBA at all, or is an idiot.

True, but when things are slow it's nice to participate anyway.

Not really. QC may have an inordinate amount of man love for Melo but he's been pretty consistent with saying James and Durant are pretty much head and shoulders above the rest of the league.
