I agree with you treadstarter. Nobody said anything about Melo and NY until like 2 or 3 years ago. My thing is if you dont want to rep the town anymore then dont. I dont have a problem with Melo reppin BK as his birthplace and where half his fam resides but Melois a BMore kid, he grew up playing ball in BMore and he came into the league with the trademark BMore braids.

But if he doesnt what to rep the town anymore then it is what it is. Rudy Gay reps the town still.

Oh and KD isnt from DC he is from PG county, and played for PG All Stars growing up.

When You Think Of "Home"...What Comes Mind? Its So Many Ways You Can Go With That Question But I'm Put Like This. His Home....Is Brooklyn,None of You n*ggas Can Take That Away From Him. Let The Man Rep The City & State and Move On.....I Really Dont See NY Disowning Him.

n*ggas Finna Lose Sleep Over Weather or Not Melo Should Say He From NY. For 65 Million,You Think He Care What n*ggas Is Saying? Really?
Typical BX response. "Oh, why do ya'll care so much...blah blah blah".

We get it, this is BX where we don't let facts get in the way of fabrications. That's why half you bums post and flock to MediaTakeOut stories, but if it comes to something in the Daily Bugle section, ya'll are ghost.

Ya'll ain't fooling me.

They say "It ain't where you're from it's where you're at" but what about if that person decides to rep where he was born?

I agree with you on that, but Melo has to be careful how he words things. For a lot of people Melo is the face of the city of BMore, and he does good in the city but if he just ignores his BMore roots then he will alienate his home base. It has nothing to do with the Knicks because there is a large population of Knick fans in BMore.

Melo cant get away from it even if he wanted to though because he has a thick BMore accent anyway.

I'm sure in his mind, it's all marketing. Everyone knows he reps bmore hard, but this is about money, reviving NY basketball, and what's that old saying go, tell a lie a thousand times and people will believe it. Its just marketing and entertainment, I'm sure in his mind he doesn't want to alienate his hometown. I hope people can tell the difference between marketing and real life.

I think some of ya'll are taking this a little bit too seriously...I could careless if he wants to rep my city anymore. I knew he grew up here in baltimore but I never really identified him as being a baltimore n*gga in the first place.

s**t, number 52 in my avy is more of a baltimore cat than melo.....

Last thing Im going say on it.

No one saying he wasnt born in BK.

Im saying he never repped NYC until this whole lala knick s**t. Dude has a west baltimore tat which was made into warnabrotha cus of the stop snitching movement he wore nothing but raven and oriole team hats and clothing and has a oriole chevelle hes selling now.

Im saying he didnt bring up this im so New York s**t until recently just seems a lil fake to me but thats it.
