  • Honestly don't think melo is NBA caliber. There, I said it. I agree with Max. Not explosive, broken shot, and liability on defense, for what? Some good court vision. I wouldn't buy it. These kids nowadays are walking into the NBA. Watered down league.I like melo but Lavar Ball is finessin' the NBA.

    Ash RussomAsh RussomDag siden
    • Also, I can not stand the fact that 'being able to put fans in the seats' is one of the reasons for melo to be drafted. Are we being serious? I love the game of basketball, and for the sake of keeping the integrity of the game, this should not be one of the reasons we draft players. If that's the cause, anyone popular could join the league. Keep the NBA high level, draft talented players. Simple.

      Ash RussomAsh RussomDag siden
  • Lets all be honest, a HUGE part of the reason melo got drafted was because of Lavar Ball

  • MJ is the greatest to do it, no doubt. But a horrible owner and his track record as a mentor is horrific as well. All I say is Kwame Brown and the other rookie in Chicago he broke.

  • Lamelo shot 25% from 3 and 45% from 2 in the NBL. He's only gonna get worse in the NBA. Teams will disrespect him and sag off cause they know he can't shoot so any sort of playmaking he could have done against lesser competition will be neutralized. Dude will be a fringe starter or 6th/7th man at best like his Lonzo.

  • He’s not ready, he’s going to struggle with his shot and getting his own shot this is the NBA not Australia and he can’t and doesn’t want to guard. Jordan is going to ruin him even more demanding him to be a star can’t wait till Jordan and Lavar Ball go at it with the drama 😆😆

  • For MJ, and Charlotte, it would be best if Lebron becomes owner of a NBA team after his retirement. The competitive nature of MJ would make him do his best of making this team a succes on the floor instead of just a hobby or way of making money. (though in this specific case he couldn't take any other pick)
