I'm really happy for the Blazers and Melo. Dame had been pushing for this and gaining extra goodwill from your star is always nice.

Also, PF Melo with space and an actual PG should be nice. I always though Melo was at his best at PF and it's awesome that the Blazers aren't forcing some goofy expectation of him being a spot up 3 or shooter only or anything. I hope this works out awesome for both teams.

Goes to show these awards are BS. Melo isn't the Blazers of the week. How can he be the western conference player of the week?

That guy loves hearing himself speak. He really didn't have anything of value to say or even seem to grasp what is going on.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Look, Melo has been great. Absolutely, unexpectedly great. But that was a symbolic POTW. It should have gone to Doncic or, ugh, Harden.

Nobody thinks he was the best player in the western conference last week. I think it was awarded because of the overall situation. To go from out of the league to what he did last week in such a short period, at the age that he did it, the NBA felt was deserving of the award of performance of the week. At the end of the day, who really cares? It will probably end up in one of his drawers in a guest bedroom.

Yeah, he's about as full of **** as he can be. It was funny when he tried to set himself apart from the "talking heads." He succeeded by being a talking empty head. There is plenty of good material in the Melo story, but this guy is so dumb he couldn't make 1 good point in the time I listened before tuning out. I got to when he said he would dumb it down. How could he get even dumber than what I already heard? His voice-over is proof I will tolerate almost anything to watch Blazer highlights.
