He won't be contending for anything in Detroit they just took a team and made it a bunch of individuals.
But its clear you just want to bag on Melo so why not just say I hate Melo rather then post the rest?
Ive played basketball all my life and have been on some really good teams and have played in big tournaments learned countless offensive plays and have ran loads of defenses and I pay attention to college and the NBA and have never once heard the term Ball Stopper
You'll be surprised with Detroit and actually I like Melo and think he's one of the best international players but in the NBA he's too inconsistent and he hasnt shown he can be someone you can rely on. He also plays no defense and it's not the fact that he's not good at it, it's just he doesn't try and that really bothers me about him.
