Carmelo made his feelings known on the Rockets offering Jeremy Lin a three-year deal worth over $25 million.
Melo was quoted saying, “It’s not up to me. It’s up to the organization to say that they want to match that ridiculous contract.”
Now, you can say that Lin is getting overpaid and you have an argument. It’s too early to tell if the Rockets are making a huge mistake by signing Lin to that kind of deal. I think Lin can be a special player, but I know many people who doubt the legitimacy of his NBA career so far.
But if we want to talk about bloated contracts, let’s talk about Melo’s 3-year contract extension worth nearly $65 after he was traded to the Knicks.
Talk about a guy getting overpaid, while not leading his team to the promised land like everyone thought he would.
Dwight Howard is the most annoying immature player right now in the NBA, but Melo is rising up the charts with his immaturity, selfishness, and total lack of self-awareness.
As long as Melo is one of the stars in New York, the Knicks will not win a championship. Mark my words.
