Carmelo Anthony doesn't have to come off the bench, he also doesn't have to learn to adapt the houston rockets game. Even the worst case scenario of melo doing whatever melo normally does, that still works for rockets. Right now they do not have the wings they had last year. Which means they need proper wings, they need someone who can strecth the floor somehow. They lost last year on the western conference finals with 27 threes missed in a row, I doubt melo could be any worse, he has worse defense than ariza for sure but considering they already lost ariza, they have no other choice than sign him.

Actually their offense is the most stretched. It is even wider that the GSW play.

Gordon, Harden, CP3 are scary with their 3 point percentage. Add Tucker which had been also good with his three's.
It is just Capella which is always on the inside.

 Melo might fit in the 2nd team. If you see how they played in the Finals of the West where it is like 8 players which are rotating in the game. Minus 1 when CP3 got injured. They need that back up team. It doesnt mean he is not really needed. It is just that his ego might get in the way.


I think Carmelo Anthony has always been overrated due to not being much of a defensive player.  He's good for the Rockets system because they are a high powered offense.  The problem with being a three point shooting team is that you live and die by the three.

He is really a great player. But that was before. Unlike Lebron who keeps his game aggressive with his agility and power. Melo do not have that anymore. He is starting to get a really big body but cannot get that agility that is needed for a small forward or even the forward position.

Houston plays with speed. That is how D'Antoni plays are made. If you see games of Phoenix and Knicks, all are made with small players that could do fast breaks. That is why they dont use much of their centers.

I don't think he is a good addition. Considering his playing style, he wants the ball in his hand and we know how Harden play is. We'll let's see if they will have a good rythm. They are deadly if they will show a good chemistry.

I dont know much about the playstyle of Melo but I think he always want to shoot in the perimeter and outside. Maybe he can be a good addition into the offensive power of Rockets now that Ariza has been traded to Suns I think. If Melo will be great in Rockets this season, they have the chance to beat Warriors.

After the transfer, I've seen my friends got disappointed of his transfer and they are saying the same thing. Rockets won't be the same since they've got Melo.

If Melo will be great in Rockets this season, they have the chance to beat Warriors.

Melo was a consistent offensive specialist during his Denver days. When he transfered to the Knicks he gradually lost his offensive effeciency. One thing I dont like with Melo's playing style on both ends, is forcing a low percentage shot and lack of defensive presence. The OK3 was just a proof that a team cant win when everyone wants to score. Ive seen Melo and PG throwing bricks at OKC, I know even the GOAT have a bad night, but great players always find a way to be useful to his teammates even without making a bucket. I'd rather have Melo on the 2nd squad as the lead scorer than putting him in the starting line up.

The Rockets' back-court dual-core Paul and Harden have extraordinary organizational skills, they can really stimulate the essence of Anthony scorers, Anthony can rest assured to put the energy into the offensive.
The Rockets are now in a vacuum with the SF position and they need Anthony's arrival.

Following you with that, yes Paul and Harden can give Melo another chance to bring hype to his career, we know this two stars can break the defense and Melo as a receiver and always ready to shoot the ball, the coach might see good potentials with this three players joining together and blending the chemistry, with how the west was formed right now most of the teams will find ways to be more  competitive.

Melo cannot run, he is a big man but not as athletic as Lebron James.
I don't know if who is going to adjust here, is the current style of play of the Rockets will be change just to accommodate Melo or should he adjust?

Well we've seen in the past that having your offense going around melo don't really end up well. He's just not that type of player that can carry the offense and the team like his batchmates bron or wade. Definitely the adjustments would have to be on melo and he has to embrace what role would be given to him.

It will be Melo who will adjust his type of style in playing for me. The Rockets are a strong team already and they just need a teammate who will replace Ariza since he is traded to another team and Melo will fill that slot. I agree that Melo is not as athletic as Lebron or any big guys out there. If he will adjust his style then he can contribute more in the team.

I don't think that Melo can fit as replacement to Ariza. Trevor is more of a defensive player and his three points is just a bonus for Houston. How can he fill in the shoes of Ariza on that regard when we all know that Anthony doesn't play defence and more of a isolation player in which James Harden is the best option? We saw that he didn't make any adjustment on OKC so I don't know how or why the Rockets is interested on getting his services.

The rockets could use Melo for sure.  Since they will most likely be going up against Golden State again in the playoffs they severely needs his offensive game.   Carmelo hasn't been able to lead his past teams to the finals (Nuggets, Knicks) but I think he is better suited as a 2nd or 3rd option type player.  Let Harden/ Paul run the team and just let Carmelo do what he does best.

It looks like he is more likely to start from the Bench than as a starter or if as a starter, probably He's going to replace Trevor Ariza since he's gone to the Phoenix Suns as a free agent. Melo is generally a toxic player who's actually never even been top 5 player in any season(yeah, I know it is surprising) and its really hard to make him learn how to play team ball. Interesting to see how he fits in and how Mike D'Antoni uses him.

Paul has something to do with Melo agreeing to play with Houston so I'm sure that he explained to him already that he is no longer the first or second option for their offense and I'm sure Melo understands that. Starting with playing with the Knicks, Melo started to decline his playing style and it was evident at OKC. With that said, he will be used sparingly by coach Mike but they will do everything to involved him in plays so bring his confidence back. But as first five I don't think that Mike will do that so Melo will have to come as a 6th man.

I guess that should be enough for Melo by now.

How about the change in rules of the NBA.
Someone is looking to take it back to 2-3-2 rule to save travel funds and also the impact to the players being dosed by airsickness.

Another is about the top 16 seeding regardless of what conference they are. When could this be implemented?
We know there are good teams in the West that had a good standing like Denver Nuggets who struggle to get that 8th rank in the Western playoffs and yet failed.
But if this is implemented then they could get a chance. Eastern teams have bad standing in 2018.

https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2018/7/24/17606678/lebron-james-lakers-nba-playoffs-conference-imbalance-gmib

Nuggets should have been at rank 14 that time out of 16 overall.

This could also be a chance to watch greater games even in the season. It will look like the playoffs every game.  Cheesy

The difference between melo in nuggets, melo in knicks and melo in okc with melo in rockets is that melo now knows he is not the superstar he is. Yes he wants to be a starter, who wouldn't I want to be a starter in NBA too.

However I can't even be the 12th guy that sent to g-league yet melo can put his foot down and ask to be a starter and he can get that. About the difference melo back in those teams were a scoring threat, up until he was traded to OKC he believed he was the scoring number one option. This time he knows cp3 and harden is the real deal and he is not the dude at this team. He kinda realized that in okc but also had trouble believing it, it takes time. I think it will be a lot better this year with Diantoni coaching him again.

I hope that there will be no conflict between him and Harden. I hope for the best to Rockets and I've read the article that Harden said it's a great acquisition for them.

Melo has to understand that he is not a star player of a team, if he still wants to get sign, he was to play according to his rule.
Harden is a facilitator, now there are two options for him to give the ball, either Melo or paul but we have already seen that Paul is an effective player.

Lets stop that Melo thing for now because many know that he doesn't fit there (just joking)  Cheesy Cheesy

Lets talk about Kevin Love signing a 4 year 120 million extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst and Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon report the Cavs have signed Kevin Love to a four-year, $120 million extension.

The team officially announced the move on Tuesday afternoon as Love signed the contract at Quicken Loans Arena in front of Cavs front-office officials and construction crews working on renovating the arena.

http://www.nba.com/article/2018/07/24/report-kevin-love-signs-four-year-120-million-extension-cleveland-cavaliers?collection=news

Now that Love is the remaining all-star in the Cavs, what will be the future of the team. Can he seek help from his teammates. I wish what Lebron did last season will not happen to Love next season.

Houston Rockets are said to be an offensive team so I think Carmelo Anthony will be a great guy for them. Carmelo is a great scorer, we all now that, e might not be in his prime right now but I know that he is in a team that will be used his potential.

Paul and Harden did their best, including other players like Capela and Gordon and with Carmelo this Season I guess we will be seeing how will they play.
