Chandler expected to play Wednesday

Tyson Chandler did not practice with the team on Monday, but he is expected to play on Wednesday.

Chandler missed practice due to personal reasons, the team said.

Melo's a great individual player, but sadly not elite, not until he wins himself a ring. The same goes for Durant- who he's often compared to on this board. He used to be compared to Lebron.

@xmen

Lol! Interesting analysis. Could it be Melo is not much a self-motivator as some people on this board suggest? There's no denying his talent, but he strikes me as more of a follower.

There are certain players that are truly impact players and some maybe not as much.

Shaq was a beast in the East. he took his Magic team to the NBA Finals with Penny and etc.

Then he goes West to LA and they win rings in many of the years he was there. 

He goes to the Heat and his team with another ring with Wade beasting in the Finals. 

He went to PHX to but that was a horrible fit.

LBJ takes his team to the Finals in the East with a bad cast and then he goes to Miami and they go to the NBA Finals each year winning a ring in 2 of them.

A.I., he takes his team to the Finals in the East with a cast of characters and then he goes to Denver and go nowhere with Melo

Billups who wins a ring in the East with Dumars and co and then he goes West to play with Melo (for AI) and they go nowhere but the WCF one year. 

Melo, he takes his team to the WCF once and then comes to NY and we make it to the 2nd round once and may miss the playoffs this year.

ANALYSIS!  The problem is Melo! lol

Why would we go after an elite PG with the triangle offense?  Just a total waste of money.  That's just terrible management if we waste max dollars on a player such as Rondo.  Go after Marc Gasol.

@SuperDuper Dude, All 3 of those players got to an NBA Finals and lost to the MJ Bulls.  Malone and Stockton got there twice and lost to the Bulls I believe.

Even Barkley talented but hold the ball forever dumb butt got to the NBA Finals.

Melo, 10 years going and no NBA finals! 

Also Utah played the Bulls tough. Remember MJ pushing off (forgot his name but see his face) for that last shot?

@SuperDuper  LoL, MelO isn't on those players level especially mentally

@Sandro Guedes  And he's supposed to be Elite, he loves to win so much they he forces his way out of denver when he could of waited and signed with them and have a full team, what a winner mentality

- Conley outplayed CP3 2 years in a row.

- DWIll got beat by Nate and Belinelli. And couldn't cut it with a legendary coach in Utah.

- M Gasol will never sniff the WCF.

- LA still hasn't gotten close.

- K Love can barely carry his team.


Getting to the NBA finals is something precious few can say. So those who don't get there shouldn't get the sole blame as to why they didn't.

@SuperDuper @dagawdEverything is relative man!  He's very elite comparing to us and many other players

But is he elite in the sense that he makes others better or the type of leader that can get it done in the clutch?

Melo's suspect decision making hurts him from being the closer that he should be.

He's a lethal scorer that when you look at his stats at end of games, he will have his 25+ easily. 

Yet, for those critical possessions during a game that can affect the turnout or change the momentum, Melo is not elite and there's no stat for that other win wins and loses.

@Kiyan Carter Melo is in the East now and it's been that way for many years.

In the West, Melo has execues.

In the East. Melo has excuses.


Melo, the most unluckly player ever.

@Kiyan Carter Dude, this is the NBA where many teams make the playoffs. It's not baseball!

Once you get into the playoffs, you have to perform and win period. 

Getting to the playoffs does not make you special, not making the playoffs makes you special.....in a Biggie way!

"Second best in the east and top 5 in the nba"

@Kiyan Carter LOL  i think you've shot your last BB young buck!  Now you're throwing the gun at me. 

Underdog, Underroos whatever, your boy Melo has not taken a team to be the best in his conference ever!

If that's greatness to you, then you need to up your standards

@VerySilentJay @xmenreturn 

CP3 is an elite talent like Melo.  But until he wins anything or get his team somewhere, he is just a top player or talent but I will not consider him a winner just like I do Melo.

@Kiyan Carter LMAO WCF is not the NBA Finals.

Melo has never been the best in his conference never alone the NBA.

xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter Dude, Melo can't get to final apearance or a ring so what is your pt. 

If you are down on just getting to the NBA Finals, then Melo is should even be worse in your eyes.  

It's that luv thing again huh Happy?

VerySilentJay
VerySilentJay

@xmenreturn @VerySilentJay  I consider CP3 to be a top 3 PG of this league.

Multiple time All-Star, Olympian, et al. 

That, to me, is elite. Is it his fault that he's come up short in the playoffs time and time again?

Is it his fault he's never been given strong enough teams durign his career.


DWill had one of the best coaches in history and couldn't do jack, while running a legend out of town later.


So only players with rings are elite?

To me, that's absurd.

xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter LMAO ! Here we go with the real help. Dude hasn't had real help for 10 years? 

Maybe if he got real halep, he wouldn't even know what it looked like or what to do with it. 

I guess AI and Billups are not real help.



xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter Then Melo can't even get there!  If you can't even out of your own conference how great are you really?

You're starting to eat your own man!

@VerySilentJay @xmenreturnSo which one of those guys are elite and gotten to the NBA Finals or have a ring?

CP3, Love, DWII ahven't won anything and they are in a similar boat as Melo.  

Yes, everyone don't get to the NBA Finals or win a ring. For those that have been in the league for many years and not won a ring or gotten to a NBA Finals, they are not eleite players until they can get their teams to that level.  

Also they are not elite just because they are on a team that does get there.  Elite is for players that are the main reasons they got there or as a role player.

@Kiyan Carter Stop with the excuses. There are always reason why u lose otherwise you would have won.

@Kiyan Carter Name the game winners Melo hit this year?

We barely have 6 wins so you should be able to name all of them? lol

xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter Chandler, Bilups have a ring.  

They both played here with Melo and we get 0 ring.

STAT and Melo are in the same boat.  Both are not smart players and both have not even won their conference.


xmenreturn
xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter Game winners? So out 90+ games in a regular season, your guy Melo hits 6 game winners and blow 10 games with bad decision making, only the 6 games is noticed by you huh?

In the playoffs especially, it's about winning.  How many playoffs games have Melo won for us?


xmenreturn
xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter What?  

We lost to the Indy last year and we had the higher seed!

Stop it man, Melo has been in the league for a decade now so he can't just be just unlucky for 10 years can he?

Maybe it means he's not the leader or winner that many of you make him out to be.

Melo is talented like Barkley was but not the smartest. However , Barkley did his damage near the rim in the clutch and that's the difference.

@SuperDuper  And he didn`t win till he got Scotty and Phil, you guys are completely non knowledgeable leading off with the Latin hater followed closely by D man

@sandro, I strongly disagree. Malone and Barkley were/are not better than Melo. The problem is that we are always thinking that the grass is greener on the other side. In another words, we always find the players on other teams to be better than ours. At the end of his career, Melo will be better than both above. Also you cannot compare Stockon to Melo. For Pete sake, Stockon was a point guard.... SMH...

xmenreturn
xmenreturn

@Kiyan Carter Yep that is why IO say even Barkley got to the NBA Finals.

Barkely at least too the ball down low most of the time in the clutch and that surely help. 

Melo can't even match Barkley in getting his team anywhere.

@dagawd @firebaldy  I agree that religion was invented as a control tool but people who do believe in religion do so based on faith---NOT FACT. I get where  you are at on that. You do know something afterall.

There are universal laws and life is about those laws and how we adhere to or ignore them. 

Look up Epigenics as well. Very interesting.

@SuperDuper I'm not even talking about eras.  I'm talking about players who fundamentally know when the game is on the line, they play high pct b-ball rather than just relying from the perimeter. 

Melo is 98% perimeter in the clutch.  Ewing had this issue too where he would shoot fade aways instead of using his 7 foot body to attack the rim. However, Ewing seem to be afraid to go to the foul line since he missed some critical foul shots there.

@SuperDuper Ok. Then show us the MJ rings!

Good decision making helps you sustain playing against good teams.  

No one not even MJ could hit a perimeter shot in the clutch all the time.

MJ won many games at the foul line or he found Paxton, Kerr and others for an open shot. 

Players like T-MAC and Vince Carter had what Melo has which is when the game is int he clutch, they tried to do it from the perimeter. Against better teams and players this is not high pct.  You have to be able to take it to the hoop and draw a fool maybe, hit your free throws while the clock is stopped and etc. 

With Melo, T-MAC, VC, it all or nothing on that perimeter shot.

Bird, Magic, Kobe, MK, Duncan, Akeem and etc were able to do it inside, make good decisions along with being able to hit the open shot.
