The Melo Rules

For the Lakers, it means throwing everything at him (including the kitchen sink): ”The Lakers ain’t going to let me beat them. That’s just the way it is,’ Anthony said. ‘Every time I get it, I’m seeing two, three, four people at a time. So I take it as a sign of respect. If they were out there and backing off me and not even worrying about me, then I take it as disrespect.’ According to his analysis, the Lakers must have the utmost respect for his play because they have clamped down on Anthony and chopped into his effectiveness. In the last three games, including Wednesday night, Anthony is 16-of-52 (30.7 percent) from the field. But there is no drop in his confidence. He still says the Nuggets have a good shot at the series.”

    Carmelo cannot be stopped by anyone on the Lakers Squad… Denver doesnt lose to the Lakers in any of these games, they beat themselves… Turn Overs and sloppy passes are what is keeping the Lakers even involved

    Give it to Kenyon so he can use his highly polished and insanely reliable jumpshot!

    So you mean to tell me that the Lakers are putting greater emphasis on the highest scorer from the opposing team? Who woulda thunk it?!

    The Melo Rules? Like the Pistons defensive (and psychological) scheme to control Jordan and the Bulls? The Lakers are nowhere near the Motown original Bad Boys. Gasol is no Laimbeer and Odom is no Rodman (who is, sometimes even Dennis isn’t). I think the only one in title of a set of Rules is LeBron. How do you stop the guy? (Orlando knows how, shoot the lights out)

    MP also has alot to do with the Magic’s “containment” of LeBron. If letting him average nearly a triple double is containment. The hot shooting just allows them to match James, not stop him.
