The Houston Rockets with Chris Paul (Missing time due to suspension) and James Harden are off to a 1-3 start, and so far newest Rocket Carmelo Anthony has not done much coming off the bench. Melo has talked about having to adjust to coming off the bench, but it seems like Mike D’Antoni is willing to give Melo a shot at starting to jump start the Rockets.
You know Melo has been wanting this, but it remains to be seen if the results will be any different. Even though the season just started, this Melo looks like the OKC Melo who just camped behind the 3-point line.
I know Melo can no longer carry a team, but he should be able to give a team like the Rockets effective minutes. Everyone talks about ‘Olympic Melo’ but what happened to “Bully Ball’ Melo in the post? Why not run a couple of plays for him in the post?
Ok, ok enough of all that, I am not here to be a Melo apologist. I just wanted to give a lil commentary about Melo making his first start for the Rockets tonight. To be honest i am not expecting much, but at the same time I hope nothing but the best for the guy
One last thing, you know Melo had to be sitting on the bench during this 1-3 start channeling the high school football legend Bobbie Miles (Friday Night Lights)…
HAHAHA, I can see Melo now, “Y’all wanna win, put Melo in… I’m bout to spin!”
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
