I Would Be So Stoked To Have Melo On My Team! Why not!? Melo is so awesome, and that nickname is superb. His nickname is “Melo”, as if “Carmelo” was not cool enough. Who shortens their sweet name with an even sweeter nickname? “Melo”… his nickname is “Melo”. I want him on my team!
I loved the commercial where he played every player on the court as himself. He even played the coach. I want that guy on my team. I want him as a teammate. Who needs the other parasites on the team when you have a guy like “Melo”? I guess that is why he only has 3 assists per game. He is not being selfish. He is just passing to himself. That does not count as an assist, but it should. It seriously should. Melo and Kobe would lead the league in “Self Serve Assists”.
I love how he is demanding to be traded. That is the kind of guy that I want on my team. I want a guy that wants to be off of his perennially playoff bound team so bad that he openly demands how bad he wants out of that crumby city where they obviously do not care about their players.
I love how he can so easily cut ties with his coach that leaned on his team as he fought back from cancer. I love how he can so easily cut ties with his teammates. I love how he can drop the city that drafted him, and the city that wears his jersey.
Why do I love it? Because “Melo” is a calculated business man. He will make more money in New York. He will get more publicity in New York. He will get more SportsCenter face time in New York.
That is the guy I want on my team. I want a guy that makes all of his decisions based on what he wants, because he is going to be on my team. He is looking out for himself, and himself will be on my team.
