I'll just remind you of my two main "Carmelo points" from last summer:
1 - With a reliable third scorer the Pistons don't just challenge for the EC but for the NBA title THIS YEAR.
2 - In five years Carmelo will be more above Prince than Milicic will be above Okur.
Of course it'll be a while before that all comes out in the wash but I've been here for five years (even though "here" has moved!) I figure I'll be around another five.
