    I’m legitimately thankful to have had Melo play here.

    I was heavily onboard the Melo to PDX bandwagon back when Houston was putting his picture in their hallway with a trophy in his hands. So seeing it happen here eventually was a delight.

    I gotta go back and find out who it was that absolutely lost it on me in this thread. Claiming I was purposely trying to deceive the forum members with a blurry picture! They were pissed!

    I’m working, but if one of you mouth breathers gets a break from your video game sessions or your mom brings you some lunch downstairs, please find it for me!

    Wondering if they are around still? Maybe using a different name?

    I'm sorry @SlyPokerDog I just had to.... Could not resist.

    Since this has been posted in so many threads already, I figured it should be put in our mega mega mega thread just for posterity.

    Carmelo was in my 'Top 100' favorite Blazers. After learning this tidbit, he's dropping off that list...

    I wouldn't even put him in my top 10 of people with the name Anthony, who played for the team.

    I like Melo but face it, after Portland he went ring chasing. You are what you eat.

    He was ring chasing before he came to Portland. OKC, Houston, etc. He only signed here because literally nobody else would take him.

    For those who asked (in no particular order)

    Greg Anthony
    Anthony Mason (sure he never played for the team but he was drafted by them).
    Anthony Tolliver
    Joel Przybilla (his middle name is Anthony)
    Anthony Cook
    Richie Frahm (middle name of Anthony)
    Antonio Harvey (I'm counting him)
    Tony Brown (assistant coach)
    Antonio Daniels (see Antonio Harvey)
    Mario Elie (middle of Antonio)
    Tony Snell

    Melo doesn't register on my radar. He was always good at getting selfish numbers that rarely help the team.

    I was never a fan and didn't enjoy his time here.

    He was right that if Dame wanted a title his best chance to get it was to leave. And he probably knew Dame well enough to know that above all else, Dame wanted a chance to win a title.

    And he knew enough about Blazer Management to have an idea what their priorities were.

    Good advice Melo.

    Melo was fine, even though he always seemed a bit out-of-focus and fuzzy.

    And his personal life is of no concern to me. If he told some dame to get the fuck out, well, we don't know the whole story.
