Carmelo never passes [up an opportunity to see what the public is thinking]
 
2013-12-05 02:32:24 PM
Then why is he reading it?

Hrm, I just took a picture of one of my dog's butt earlier this week. I should put a #carmeloanthony tag on Otto see if I get more likes.
 
2013-12-05 02:36:50 PM
On it, not Otto. Otto dun have an Instagram account.

Wasn't there an athlete or coach a while back that put a video up of them reading and politely responding to hate mail/comments? More public figures should do that for my entertainment. It has to be done with humor though since most times when someone lashes out, it ends poorly for them.

The Knicks suck because Tyson Chandler is out, and he's their best player by a large margin.

But no.  It's the Narrative Bullshiat League, so they suck because Carmelo isn't a winner.

so, what was the picture of?  The one where mello called him a farking clown?

Why the hell isn't there a thread here or on the front page about the Jameis decision?

The first rule about not giving a shiat is to not talk about not giving a shiat.

Oh Jimmy Kimmel they have a segment where celebrities read mean tweets about themselves. They even had an NBA version, some were pretty good.

It can easily be both things. Though, I'd replace "Carmelo is not a winner" (which is just media BS, calling someone a winner or that they want it more or whatever) with "Carmelo is a volume scorer who plays shiatty defense but they built the team around him like he's LeBron".

Also Chandler is their best defensive player, ya, but best?

Yes.  Defense, in the NBA, is really, really, really, really important.  If you look at the teams in the finals every year, it's almost always two of the very best defensive teams.

Didn't the Mavs sink a good deal once Chandler left?

Pretty sure the Spurs and Heat were two of the best defensive teams last year. Because, you know, defense is actually important in the NBA when it counts in the playoffs.

But hey you're obviously a Carmelo fan so I understand why you don't think defense matters.

Did you just say the exact thing he said then accuse him of saying the opposite? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

I think it is hilarious that people believe Carmelo is a better basketball player than KD. Like, Melo wishes he could even be close to Durant.

Melo certainly is older than KD and Durant will never catch him in that stat.

Is it always news when the police decide not to do something?  Lebron James didn't get charged with rape today, neither did Carmelo Anthony, Tim Tebow, Peyton Manning, or Alex Rodriguez.  WHERE ARE MY THREADS?  WHERE?!!!

Headline is missing the words "about playing defense" at the end.

Idk I thought he was being sarcastic when he said "defense is really really really really" important. I guess the third and fourth reallys made me thinking he was being condescending and continuing with his theory that Melo's lack of defense doesn't contribute to the Knicks' suck.

If not, hey sorry Dafatone. Maybe limit your reallys next time so IAmRight doesn't have to monitor the sports tab for possible missed sarcasm.

Cowherd constantly pisses me off but he was spot on w/his comments about Anthony this morning.

No sarcasm.  Melo's lack of defense hurts, but their biggest problem is no Chandler in the middle.  I'm sticking with Chandler as their best player.
