  • This is such BS! Why would they put Melo's name up there as a snub, when they didn't even want him the in the league? These media clowns be starving for WORTHLESS talking points. Most of these media personnel never amounted to anything other than desk-clerk paper-pushers, yet, they talk about the athletes as if their equal to them or own them.

  • It’s sad how the media will always bring up the Luka-Trae trade. Let him do his own, he’s a GREAT young PG himself and as soon as he’ll be surrounded with good defenders, they’ll be straight

  • Max gassing him up. He didn’t get selected because he doesn’t play defense and turns the ball over too much. His play at this point in his career is conducive to losing. Team USA ain’t about that life.

    • Its not that. Young probably would have made last year's world cup team after Lowry pulled out after his thumb surgery didnt heal in time. But Young snubbed the team so Pop is snubbing him back.

  • Yes, he is 30 and 9... In a loosing team, that he is not helping to develop, and still have worst record than the last year (when he was a rook) Playing 35 min, and averaging 4'9 turnovers, yeah 4'9 turnovers a game. Not being able to defend anybody in the league, and with a "supect" lack of effort And now invited in an All Star without deserving it, over player s way better and with at the least better team record (well thats easy because Trae Young team its the worst in the East)
