Carmelo Anthony

Let's be realistic, are there any chances he stays in New York after next year?? They have no trade chips, they have the worst contract in the NBA in stoudemire.. they are old.. They have nothing, they are maybe the 5th seed, and they wont get far in the playoffs.. With that said, Melo wants to win, I get it.. but.. He's just not a winner, sadly for his fans.. Dude is just not a team player, he's an isolation scorer, a good rebounder, but that's it.. Im just not sure who he could fit well with.. I will say it now.. He's maybe the best scorer in the NBA though, I'll give him that.. So should melo just collect another huge contract in New York where he wanted to be, and be happy with this situation? Thoughts.. ?

I haven't said a damn thing

I haven't said a damn thing about the Greek Basketball Society.. Pretty sure that isn't even a thing. But either way accusing me of that when I clearly have said nothing against the Greek Basketball "society" is ridiculous. Therefore you're merely assuming that. I have this account to use when I feel like posting comments not to be attributed to my main account for whatever reason.

Stoudermire comes off the

Stoudermire comes off the books the same time he does, if he takes a little bit less money to come back to New York, they could make a run at guys in Free Agency to reload. I dont think it is so far fetched to think he will come back.

I'm thinking maybe he means a winner in the NBA since Carmelo has been in the NBA for a decade.

My take on the Melo situation

My take on the Melo situation is - he has a player option for $23.5 million for 2014/15 season and after that year STAT, Bargnani and Tyson Chandler will be free agents also. So it looks like NY's rebuild year would be 2015, so I figure that Melo may well opt in next summer that the money for 2014/15 and see what NY do that summer.

Other teams will come calling but if Melo took a 4 year deal but Melo would not really lose out if he opts in and could still have the option of moving on in 2015. If I have read the current CBA right then Melo could sign the following contracts

2014

Remaining with NY - 5 years worth up to $134 million
Moving as an FA - 4 years worth $96 million

2015

Remaining with NY- 5 years worth up to nearly $147 million
Moving as an FA - 4 years worth just over $105 million

So you can see the huge amount of money Melo could leave on the table and why he may well keep his options open to 2015.

Anytime there are questions

Anytime there are questions about a player's attitude, that player usually doesn't qualify as a winner. I'd rather have an ailing Manu on my team than a ball-dominant Carmelo because besides scoring, Carmelo isn't good at anything. How can that man be in the league for 10 years and still look like a chubby fat kid?

Ball and Chain

I think it has to be NYC or the Lakers. He loves the spotlight and I think his wife does even more.

Agreed completely. I think he

Agreed completely. I think he will most likely stay in NY, but if he does leave it has to be LAL. Afterall the man lives in LA in the off-season. Melo is all about the glamour and spotlight. And to not call him a winner is ridiculous. He has reached play-offs every single year in the league. He obviously isn't as good as James or Durant but nobody else is either. Unless you are at their talent level it is unfair to call somebody a loser because they have not won a ship. Many all times greats have fallen short of this task. Melo's talents are unappreciated today. It's funny how If a player is a above average defender with no offense he is a winner, but Melo is top 3 scorer in league with average defense and is a loser. smh
