Extremely overrated

Written by braba101

i Got this card after pulling Opal harden and selling him. I was extremely extremely excited as I’m a huge knicks fan and melo is my favorite player of all time. However quickly after buying him I was disappointed..

Bought for**: 400,000 MT

Strengths: the strengths for this card “should” be everything, he has maxed stats in a ton of categories, he finishes exceptionally around the rim, he plays great defense (even though it’s melo, lol) plus he can hold literally every badge in the game.

  • Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim in any way you like, floater, dunk, layup, post move, whatever you want inside, he’s got it.

  • outside scoring: I wish I could go on and on about how he hits learners, fades, catch and shoots, and all those but I can’t. He simply just doesn’t hit despite the amazing stats and badges. I am very familiar with Melo’s release, I have a myleague of the 2012 knicks and it’s my favorite game mode but MT is a close second. This melo card just can’t hit. Unless it’s a green release you have about a 30% chance of it going in.

-Weaknesses: the only weakness I’ve found with this card is the jumpshot. He just can’t hit. Other than the shot he’s insane. He plays exactly like an opal should. He dunks over people, his dribbling is fantastic. The only other thing I could think of is that he feels slightly slower but that’s probably because I’m a terrible dribbler.

Recommended Strategy: do whatever you can to get him open, I’m not sure why he doesn’t hit for me but hopefully he will for you. If he could just hit open shots he would be the best in the game by far.

Use if: always use this card.

Don't use if: don’t ever not use this card, if you can get it pick it up.

-bottom line: he has insane stats, badges, animations. He’s great. He left a ton to be desired for me in terms of shooting. (My 98 Durant hits far more often than this card)
