Discussion in 'Portland Trail Blazers' started by Binx, Nov 17, 2019.
You mean Denver?
I’m honestly curious why all of you think Anthony sat around a year waiting for a team to call. I know it’s popular to bash posts and make fun of people on this board, but I know some of you like to have serious discussions about things like this.
FWIW’s, Im not feeling this Carmelo Anthony move at all. I mean who knows its trying something. It may work.
It's all good.
Not bashing, there are multiple other threads discussing this.
Try this one if you want to know how everyone feels:
Did you really think no one was talking about it?
Maybe @Binx has @THE HCP on ignore?
Yeah, but wouldn't he be curious why no one is even mentioning it?
Well, we did talk about it also in the super thread. No posts there since Friday, I know, but it's one possibility.
I'm optimistic from playing with him on 2k20. I wasn't even trying to use him heavily, but my opponent kept a heavy guard on Dame, CJ, and Ant. It led to Melo getting relatively easy opportunities. That's always been the problem for the Blazers in real life. Once teams zero in on our ball-handlers, Aminu and Harkless could not be depended upon to hit an open three or take advantage of mismatches. If Melo is content to be a safety valve, he could prove to be a significant value. The problems will come if he wastes multiple possessions going ISO. If worse comes to worse, we can cut him and be in no worse shape than before.
I think it never worked out for OKC and Houston because they thought he could still be that third star. We don't need to have those expectations on him. Just need a reliable space floorer that keeps pressure off Dame and CJ.
At the very least, I'm excited to watch the experiment.
I'm trying to decide if Binx is another version of Mixum.
I don't think "excitement" quite captures it. Better choices:
And finally: resignation.
Stephen Jacson called
speak for yourself, I’m excited.
The whole basketball world is excited. Everyone rooting for Melo and watching the Blazers.
Is this you, @Binx?
I always speak for myself. And one of us is going to be disappointed.
I'd go with:
Had to look the last one up...
Well, that's what I think but it'll only cost us a month or so to find out. I don't like the idea because even if he does turn out (to me by some miracle) to be "good" it seems like a short term fix given his age & that he was already going downhill.
