In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
My favorite part of the article is the comparison to Melo. He says Wiggins is more Melo than Bird........................which, to me, means, let the lakers have him.........
What's wrong with Melo?
He's a great player on a crappy team. The only criticism I have is that he's more concerned about where he plays than winning. I suspect he's learned his lesson.
Well, if you read the article, you'd see that the writer says Bird could dominate a game while only scoring 11 points. While Melo could put up 35 and his team could still lose.
I agree Melo is a great player. He certainly fills up the stat sheet. He's the playoffs every year of his career until this year...............and lost. He's no Larry Bird.
As far as his team goes, Melo, Amare, Chandler, Smith, Artest, Martin........was supposed to be a good team........they gave up early in the year, and he can't lead them.
That's the point, man. Not knocking him as a player - just a leader!
