No one besides Lebron has a signature shoe worth buying right now. Sneakers went downhill along with hip hop and women wanting to be natural.

Looking like Olympic Melo out there with the varied scoring opportunities he has with his new running mates. The silver lining of trading Melo and being horrible this year is going to be rooting for these 3 from afar.

The only signature shoe that I've ever really liked was a TMac shoe...while back...red high top, very sleek looking.

I also liked a Derrick Rose one but let's not mention that.

They're trying to play off each other but the 1v1 tenancies show. With more work they will gel as 1 hopefully. That's what make GSW so dangerous.

Sharing the ball makes you more dangerous than being a stud 1v1 guy. Big 4 Celts, Warriors, Big 3 heat. It takes sacrifice. I'm just saying tif they learn to play off each other its very scary. They can play off of Westbrook's ability to start.

Melo is shooting 40% this preseason and is taking 15 shots per game in only 21 mpg. Thank the lord he is off the team. I don't hate the guy, but he needed to be shipped out in the worst way.

finally got time to watch a OKC game last night and I was damn impressed. starting 5 looks really goooood and defense was even more impressive. even Melo is playing good D there :lol:

wait until Melo and George start to get in a rhythm, then u will see how scary they are. Westbrook was out there giving Melo open looks all game long. Olympic Melo will be back

He's shooting 44% from 3 and that number might rise as they build some chemistry.

i think their biggest flaw right now is lacking a shot creator off their bench
