    You know I would honestly be open to it. Teams would actually fear Melo if he's next to PG13. Plus he can score and this team can get some decent defenders as opposed to top scores and meh defenders.

    I would be open to it if Melo handled all media conversations and questions.


    Remember when we could have gotten 1-2 solid players and a possible Top 3 draft pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by trading away Paul George?

    The assumption that leaders want the ball in their hands for the last shot except for Paul who wants it because he's egotistical and stubborn? Or the assumption that leaders are willing to pass the ball to someone else for the last shot except for Paul who passes the ball away because he has a weak mentality?

    I'd absolutely do it unless it required giving up Myles Turner. They can have their pick of anybody else. And as I said when I posted about this last week, I've been critical of Melo his entire career. Still, the dude is nigh unguardable and what that could do for PG is incredibly intriguing.

    Just an observation, if he can't handle a role player taking a last second shot he is not going to be able to handle another alpha player like Melo to take it.

    Reality is Melo is a better clutch shooter than PG so he will probably take the majority of those shots, I don't think PG is going to be happy about that.

    I doubt if Melo would ever agree to being traded to Indiana but wherever he goes I think he'll accept a Robin or second star role.

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    That is not a logical assumption to make.

    Well, he is an owner of the Puerto Rico NASL team, maybe call up the Indy Eleven owner, and have him help recruit Melo.

    I'm not saying whether Lopez is a good move or not. I'm just stating the fact the many times teams revisit trades that were talked about at the deadline. The Pacers were rumor to be interested in Lopez. I think that will be revisited this summer.

    Lopez is a good scorer and would take some of the scoring pressure off of George. I don't know what it would do to Turner and it wouldn't really help our rebounding or defense.
    Lopez is a good enough defender at the rim, as far as eye test goes at least. I like watching the Nets, always fun watching young guys. But I don't want a pairing of Lopez and Myles, unless one of them develops a real mean streak and cleans the glass.

    Your perception's off.

    If Miles would have hit the shot you wouldn't have heard ANYTHING out of PG. Don't pretend like he'd be pouting after a win.

    He was pouting before Miles took the shot, he was another distraction Miles had to deal with.

    Let's not forget how he reacted after Miles missed. I didn't notice it before until Barkley brought it up.

    BTW, Shaq was an ******* in that segment. Barkley was a Superstar in his prime, and I thought his opinion mattered too. Shaq needs to stop acting​ like he got his rings while Jordan was still dominating the league.

    Melo will be a player in 4 years that will be a huge asset for a team pushing for the playoffs. I can see him being a vet off the bench who can change the complexity of a playoff team. He is not there yet. If Paul wants Melo I say make it happen though. These two have coexisted on Olympic teams and Melo would be a stretch 4 that could help. You would have to play Lance with him to get rebounds out of your backcourt.

    The player Melo doesn't match up well with is Myles. He can help on protecting the rim. But I just don't see a strong team here.

    There's a big difference between a role player taking a final shot, and Carmelo Anthony--who's an NBA All-Star and Olympic Champion.

    Aquiring top level talent in spite of fit can certainly translate in this league. But holy schnit any line-up that included a front court of Melo at the 4 & Myles at the 5 would be awful on the boards and at interior defense........

    If in some bizaro world Melo came here the only way I think it could work would be with Paul moving back to the 2. As long as we have Turner we need a bigger physical front court player next to him or we'll never be able to defend against post play or rebound.

    You do not bring in Melo to have him play the 4 position. You bring him in to play the 3 position, and move Paul to the 2 position. Any minutes Melo gets at the 4 should be situational only. At least that is my opinion.

    Mark Boyle might be driven into retirement.

    That said, I'm sort of open to the idea. Especially if George is on board. George and Anthony on the wings with a developing Turner down low sounds intimidating right?

    Not that I would ever expect this to happen.

    I don't see Melo coming here and that wouldn't be high on my list of choices, but if it will help us keep Paul, we should do it. It would certainly take some offensive pressure off of him.

    I actually really like the idea of Melo as a stretch 4, just maybe not when paired with Turner. You look at this series, and he's quick enough to stick with Love yet still big enough to hold his own on the low block. I also don't think Love could guard him at all..

    I would hope PG has the common sense to understand that Anthony isn't what the team needs.

    I doubt it happens.....but it wouldn't surprise me if Bird would consider this.

    He's all about throwing as much talent into a mixing pot and hoping the s*** figures itself out on its own.
