The point is that Melo has played in the most stacked Conference perhaps in NBA history. First round series against SA, LA, Dallas, you get the point.
LeBron is >>>>>>>>>better than Melo, but even his greatness has produced 0 rings and 2 embarrassments at the hand of the West.
Melo had some nice players, but no one great. No way he was getting past LA or SA and not likely Bron could for a series either.
I get the feeling that Boston fans are a little more than worried about NY this year, so they might as well talk now. Should be a fun season.
I think you're missing the point, which is that you're overrating Melo's contribution to said team, seeing that the same cast went 18-7 with Felton/Gallo/Chandler instead of him and Chauncey. If you surround him with elite role players you'll have a pretty good team, but his overall value is limited by his lack of D.
FWIW I'm not really all that worried about the Knicks, if we can't beat them then there's no way in hell we're beating Miami or Chicago.
I'm obviously not trolling since everything I have said is correct, as supported with facts and sound logic.
