Still seems like a prima donna to me, and while I root my ass off for Stat and Fields, I'll always hold some contempt for Melo.
How good were those assets though? All complimentary pieces which are dime a dozen in the NBA. In the NBA you win with experienced stars. High 1st rd picks can always be bought from high capped teams.

We also got Billups & Brewer(maybe a 1st).

WE GOT A GREAT PLAYER & gave up nothing of great singular value. This was a quantity for quality trade people get KILLED for on the trade board.

If all of the upping of the offers wasn't public people would think we stole Melo & Billups IMO.
