It'll be interested to see how he fits in with the squad. I'm not convinced by any means that Melo knows how to play the right way. Talented, but...

Still, he puts up numbers like it's nothing. I once saw him score a quiet 55 at the Toyota Center


It will definitely be interesting. I've watched a couple of the Thunder preseason games and Westbrook and Paul George were sharing the ball sometimes to the point of oversharing (i.e. giving up the easier shot). Carmelo, on the other hand, hasn't turned down many shots, but I think, for the most part, that's what they want him to do within the flow of the offense. I'm tempering my expectations, because his defense is a little worse than I expected. I don't think he could cover Iguodala or Draymond effectively, at all. So, between he and Westbrook their defense can be exploited despite having 3 very strong defenders on the floor with them (Roberson, Adams, George).

That's awful, 6 minutes into the 1st quarter, looks to be season ending injury, and I've never seen an injury like that before in a basketball game. My heart goes out to Gordan Heyward.

Terrible. Hate seeing fudge like that. Hopefully it doesn't impact his career beyond this year.

That's terrible. I hope he has a full (and hopefully quick) recovery.

Lebron was out there playing with the entire back of his jersey ripped. Never seen that before. Way to go Nike :hanging:

Kerr used 13 players in the first 13 minutes. Looked like a preseason game to them...

Still, good to see KD turn it over 9 times and lose the game!

Good effort, Rockets. Tucker was phenomenal.

It happened in the preseason as well - most spectacularly here:

I'm usually able to avoid seeing those types of injuries, but not this time. I give the players a lot of credit ... I would be too shook to play with the same energy after seeing that in person. And Kyrie and LeBron both played really well to put on the show, but unfortunately not the story of this game.

It was also very surreal to hear the starting lineup with Rose, Love, Wade, and James ... and I think Crowder may end up being the best thing to happen to the Cavs this summer.
