    All these scrimmages n work outs in the summer with nba players is not gonna get melo ready ..those games where not in real time n guys where not playing him hard..I see melo taking atleast 5-10 games to get his rythm n timing back ..he was in shapes but looked a bit heavier then he usually plays like ..I see him losing 10 pounds n getting his legs back n averaging 15-20 if giving steady minutes n touches

    Melo's low point was when he made a youtube channel thinking he wont be returning back to the NBA.

    Carmelo lived like a celebrity too soon that's why he had to have everyone helping him get a contract. longevity is not at the strip clubs or Hollywood parties. If you show up to work after nights of drinking , thot chasing and getting high it will show in your lack of endurance. I hope Giannis doesn't get Melo's big head or start dating white women atleast till he has accomplished everything he wanted.

    Melo sucks. He should be retired. He takes too many shots and misses a lot too. Just look at his field gold percentage. It is low.
