    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I don't particularly mind him being on the roster, since it's not like he's bumping better players, but I'd stop short of saying he's been "good." His averages look okay, but his scoring efficiency has been mediocre (by which I mean TS%, not FG%) and advanced numbers suggest he's been a net negative--nothing special on offense and poor defensively.

    Better than a hole in the head, though. And it's MELO--the prince who was promised (by HCP).

    No it hasn’t worked. He’s terrible while looking only pretty bad. He’s fools copper. Taking minutes that young guys with upside could be playing and getting better.

    Since Carmelo Anthony (15.9 PPG, 39.5 3P%) joined the team, Portland is outscoring opponents by 3.3 points per 100 possessions with him on the court and have a net rating of -4.0 when he is off.

    Carmelo's scoring efficiency has been crap. It's not mediocre.

    Yes, but the team stats indicate he is making scoring more efficient for the other players on the court with him since he garners attention from the defense.

    Of course explaining that and having someone understand it is probably gonna be tough. This was kind of what LMA did also. He drew attention and they had to guard him. If they don't cover Melo he will drop 40 on them. This is the same with Dame and CJ. Teams have to respect all three of them.

    He had a good night for sure. But i still think the Blazers are asking a bit too much of him. He played 36 mins again tonight. They need another PF and then they need to drop his minutes back down into the 24-26 range.

    Agreed. Almost as if we have some injuries.

    17/6 in 32 mpg on 41% from 3. No defense, but who cares.

    This is so much more than I ever expected him to contribute. We'd have been so much more dynamic with Hood at SF next to him, but this will do fine.

    Why do you say "no defense"? By reputation? I think he's been playing pretty good defense and the numbers back it up.

    Alright. It's been 25 games and I think I am finally ready to say that we shouldn't have let this experiment out of the lab.
