If you had to build a team around a player would he be one of them?
Umm yes, the Knicks did and look where they are.

I wouldn't say look where they are yet, bc they haven't made it out of the first round yet. Lets wait another round or two.

BUT Melo has carried the team this year (career year) and needs to be in any top player discussion.

They will beat Boston and compared to how they were the past 12 years I would say look where they are. Melo has always been a top player and this year he was even better than normal. for Rots5 to say he is not good is just ridiculous he can say he doesnt like him, but to write him off like that is insane IMO

Rots, I think you misunderstood the question. This would not be pick 5 guys to make the best possible team, rather to rank who would be the best player to build a team around. I believe CV was posing the question, are there at least 5 guys who you would choose individually to build a team around before Carmelo (CV, CMIIW).
There seems to be four or five members here that speak my language.  :)

I don't think hes not good. I think i said it that way, yes...i don't think he's a great. That's all. All you knick fans love him this yr but what happened to the first, what was it 3 seasons in NY?! He pulled an arod and sucked. You guys would've given him away for free basically. Now that he shoots 35 shots a game and scores 30 points all of a sudden hes a great!!???  Hes amazing?!  C'mon be realistic. Hes good but he ain't no great!

He is in the league since 03-04 and he averages 25 ppg his fg% is 45.6. Kobe in his career avg 25.5 ppg and fg% if 45.4 and Lebron avg ppg is 27.6 and fg% of 49%..... pretty similar stats.

You are nuts lol! he never averaged less than 22 ppg on the knicks and always shot about 45%. He is a top 5 player especially this year.

Yes I think it does detract, but still doesnt mean he is not great.

And the argument is if he is a great player or not.
