This might be one of the most unfair threads i've ever seen on CB. Then against i've seen them for every rookie for the past 5 years.
That's the worst.
yep. that one was pretty terrible. reliving it is a good idea for cb posters one and all. thanks for the trip down memory lane.
as for melo, after watching his red claw videos it is clear his game is NOT ready for the nba yet.
but it is also clear, to me, that he has physical abilities and can become a nba center. how good a center is the key question.
he blocks very well. he now does a decent job of boxing out. give him time and he will do that at the nba level as well.
he has developed a decent jump shot where none existed before. his hook shot will be a nice one in a few years. he is showing me that he can learn to be better.
right now, he is better than perk on offense in terms of abilities.
rebounding...he has to learn to go after those a LOT more. now, he seems to sit under the basket and wait to block shots.
i think he can learn to be a decent center. but he is a project. next year he MIGHT provide some important minutes. but i dont see it this year.
