Draymond Green agrees with Carmelo Anthony to an extent. The Warriors volatile forward talked to ESPN.com about the website’s controversial list that set Anthony off on Twitter, and led to other NBA players venting their frustration on social media. “I think when you look at Melo, Melo has been a great player in this league for some time now,” Green told the website. “Obviously, I think no one thinks that he’s the Melo he was five years ago, and that happens to everyone. That’s just the nature of the career that we’ve all chosen. “At some point, you start to slow down and you’re not who you once were. So, I’m not going to sit here and lie and act like he is the Melo he was five years ago, but the 64th-best player in the NBA? All right, five years ago he was maybe sixth. He ain’t f—ing 64 [now].” That’s where ESPN.com had him, though. And it was behind the likes of Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, who was taken No. 2 in the draft. LaVar would likely agree with that, but Green doesn’t.
