I'm just livid reading the posts from fans comparing the MeloDrama with the Heat summit.. there is no comparison.
Look... The Heat was obvious cohorting... how do you explain the Heatles coming together (nice reference!), contingent on the other promising to sign??? All 3 of them were being courted by other teams, so in order for the merge to happen, they all had to have agreed together on the plan.
Melo is a different story. It's just him potentially coming to New York. He and his wife are fricken from NYC, he went to college at the 'Cuse. Has anybody thought maybe he just had them targeted the whole time??? How different is this from when Hack-a-Shaq chased additional rings in Miami then Cleaveland then Boston??
Unlike LeChoke who had countless Cleaveland roster changes to his amusement, Melo has not seen any significant 'win now' moves to compel him to stay. Just kills me when a man has to make a decision for himself and his family, and everyone is judging him. Melo has done his time in purgatory.. played out his contract. He has the RIGHT to refuse a resign and become a FA to whomever he choses. Period. <!-- / message -->
