    Lebrons fault that they had beef to begin with. Kyrie bought them back together.

    Nobody wants to pay what Melo/NYC thinks he's worth.

    How long is Melo under contract? 2 more years?

    Its 2 years, but he can opt out after this season if he wants. The only reason he's Houston or bust is because he wants to opt into that second year.

    so, how does that work? I'm a bit hazy with NBA contracts. Does he want to do that so Rockets can offer him more money as a restricted free agent?

    The Rockets can offer him more money because they would own his bird rights, but the logistics behind Melo wanting the Rockets is that he's owed 26M this year and 28M in the second year.

    Melo knows that he will never be able to make up that 28M if he opts out, because he will get low balled on his next contract. The Rockets gives him the opportunity to keep his 28M and play for a team that he can possibly compete with. If he goes to Cleveland there is a possibility that Lebron leaves after next year and he wouldn't want to stay essentially losing that money anyway.

    Melos ranking is laughably disrespectful. I get he isn't winning right now, but he's still a skilled player. He's right outside his prime as an elite scorer he's not at least still top 30? Ok...

    Meanwhile Marc and Conley are top 30..I'm satisfied..

    Who's making the new thread? The preseason is just around the corner.

    It has always been somebody different every year.

    Preseason starts on Oct 1.

    Genuinely still don't understand preseason games, unless they are fun exhibition games against foreign teams. Does any sport do this preseason BS?

    They all do. It's a way to squeeze more money out of fans starving for more.

    It's the DLC of the sports world.
