because he's not a team player, can't be coached, refuses to be coached, wants to chuck and duck like his entire career.


I answered the question and you proved yet again why you will take anything as validation of your beliefs.

2019-20 - nobody wants melo
2018-19 - rockets got rid of melo
2017-18 - thunder got rid of melo
2016-17 - knicks got rid of melo
This is it. He isn't a catch and shoot player. He isn't a standstill three point shooter and he can't be your main guy. So that makes it impossible to justify picking up a Carmelo.

He really did. I don’t think it’s fair he question the man’s “Blackness” without substantiating it some.

In an ironic spin for Mr Rose particularly it’s like calling someone weak or a quitter without context or consideration—which the Knicks (at least publicly) didn’t when he upped and left without notifying the team.

Some things you don’t question out loud in the media brother.

Is Mills not enough of a brotherman because he didn’t resign Rose to a gajillion Dolandollars?

Kinda unfair for Rose to throw that out there like that.
Unfair and irresponsible.
That’s bigger than hooping.


He was pointing out that Mills used the fact that he is also black to be cool with him while knowing that behind his back he does snake ****, which Mills does do because he is Dolan's puppet, the guy who reports back to him...his agenda is clear, his position in Dolans organization, the fact that he holds a position when he isn't even needed, makes that clear, no matter how many times he says "hey brothaman!!!" and tries to fist bump Derrick Rose in the hallways.

Believe it or not, there are many people in this world that don't support somebody who they feel is doing wrong, regardless of them being the same color as them, and they do show love to people who show it back....regardless of their color. It's called judging people individually.

Anyway, don't be a blind, black tinted glasses wearing ignorant fool in support of your people...there are **** amongst all of us. You help the cause of your people by picking and calling the bad apples out to make the rest of you better, more united, not by putting a veil over them in fear that they will make the rest of you look bad, divided. Isn't this what you want with policing? How about, I say, with **** people in general? That'll be even better, we'll start weeding all the **** people out, regardless of color, employment, political or religious affiliation.

As a Muslim, I know this all too well. Try it, Blackfeet...but I digress, your screen name coupled with the fact that you're questioning somebody that was around Mills and believing what you ASSUME just because "he's one of ours" tells me what your mindset is.

Power to the people, yada yada yada.

Fuq Derrick Rose.

That is all.
Just because it happened to you, doesn't make it interesting.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Yesterday I was lying; today I'm telling the truth.

Melo does look trim. I hope a team does pick him up.

I don't have a huge ax to grind so would be happy for him if it works. If it doesn't, I always enjoy a good world burning.

You.can't sign Melo. Melo isn't Vince or even DWade who gracefully faded. Melo needs shots to be Melo and he wants to contribute not be a mentor.
