NBA Trash Talk: Volume V

Hi, all. For those of you wondering where Volume IV went, here’s your answer:

‘Melo Out

Let me say this before we begin: I love Carmelo. I loved finding highlights on the ‘net of this mystery talent who would put a hurting on his opposite number, then grin all the way back down the floor. I loved to watch him twenty and ten his way to win after win as a frosh, eventually bringing Coach Boeheim his first national championship. I loved to see him in the blue and gold, leading an eclectic squad of unheralded players to the postseason, and in the west no less. As I type I sit before a framed Olympic jersey signed by the man himself, around which the rest of the room is arranged. I love Carmelo, and I’m not ashamed to say it.
