I really haven't even noticed Melo much this year. Maybe cause Porzingis' shine and attention has made people sort of forget about him. He may even be considered underrated at this point laugh.gif

it's really hard for me to consider melo top 15 bare minimum. maybe top 20. But he's really nothing more than a heavier derozan now.

4-5 years ago Melo would be considered better than today's Dray. Even then, it would make a for a good discussion. Today? I don't think there's no question. Fans over value scoring a little too much. Because a player is not averaging 25-30ppg doesn't mean he's not better than someone who does (which Melo doesn't anymore laugh.gif ). These are the same arguments I have when people want to shaft Marc for not being some dominant center putting up Shaq numbers. In today's NBA, value is defined by more than just scoring the basketball.

LeBron's DRPM: 2.5 (92nd percentile)

Melo's DRPM: -0.6 (41st percentile)

 

Not sure how he's better on defense. Sure, his opponent FG% chart looks good, but

 

1. There's a lot of noise in those numbers that are further from the basket (as opposed to the numbers near the rim which are useful)

 

2. He's not nearly the team defender LeBron is.

post #38086 of 93193
I think Melo is still a good player, I just think what made him elite a few years ago is starting to fade somewhat. If that was his main asset as a player (his scoring ability), then he's expected to drop off. Maybe its his situation, I don't know. Either way, the person also told me the Warriors would be just as good with Melo in Dray's spot. I just don't see why its so easy to just insert any player with a guy that does a lot more on the court.

Its a friend. But, he tends to say outlandish things and then can never back up his claims with anything. Its like barbershop talk laugh.gif . He just sticks to an opinion regardless of how you break it down.

Never post in here anymore but I always laugh at the Melo slander because its so obvious that the majority of people havy maybe seen him play once in the past two years or so.

Draymond is better imo but to act like he is in some sort of league above Melo is slightly ridiculous as well. He plays on a machine of a team that hides his deficits and accentuates his strength. Meanwhile Melo has had has a starting backcourt of Vujacic/Calderon for a chunk of this season for a team still running the triangle laugh.gif

In the 1996 NBA Draft, Kobe Bryant fell to No. 13 and the Charlotte Hornets, who took Bryant in order to trade him to the Los Angeles Lakers for big man Vlade Divac. However, that trade almost never happened, as Divac detailed to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears that he initially planned to retire instead of allowing the deal to be consummated.

Divac was drafted 26th overall by the Lakers in 1989 and soon developed a love of playing for the franchise. But then-Lakers general manager Jerry West had grand plans for the 1996 offseason. West wanted to get Bryant and then sign Shaquille O'Neal on top of that. In order to pull that off, Divac had to go.




West pulled the trigger on the deal, sending Divac to the Hornets for Bryant's rights on draft night and clearing the cap space to sign O'Neal. Only, the trade was done in principle and soon held up by Divac, who didn't want to go to Charlotte:


"My feelings were that I play basketball for fun. This is not fun," Divac recently told Yahoo Sports about the 1996 draft-day deal that sent him to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Bryant, who is expected to play his final game in Sacramento on Thursday. "If somebody asked before, 'Vlade, are you going to play basketball over there [in Charlotte]?' It's not going to happen. I talked to my wife and told her, 'Look, I'm going to retire.'

Divac was in Europe at the time of the trade and soon informed the Lakers he planned to retire, which would've nixed the deal and made him "the most hated guy in L.A."

However, West managed to talk Divac off the ledge after an "emotional meeting." The big man ultimately consented to a trade he called "the best deal in NBA history" because it gave the Lakers Bryant and allowed them to sign O'Neal to a seven-year, $120 million contract a week after the trade became official.

Divac left his family in California while he played two seasons in Charlotte before heading back to the West Coast and joining the Sacramento Kings, where he helped them nearly ruin the Lakers' three-peat, only to fall short in Game 7 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals.




Divac returned to the Lakers for one final season in 2004-05 before actually going through with his retirement. He now is the chief basketball decision-maker for the Kings, who are set to host Bryant for his final time in Sacramento on Thursday. Divac will be part of a pregame ceremony that honors the Lakers legend who almost didn't become a Lakers legend because of Divac 20 years ago.
