I still say it would of been some Jordan type shit if Melo went to Detroit 🤦🏾‍♂️ fo sho a 3peat from 04-07 ....But Bron and Wade was coming & that Boston team still would have been put together so we lose in 08 and 09 Melo Still on the Team...and we bring in some more Help like a Backup PG some how get a good free agent or 2 then 10,11,12 we run it up again & then Melo walks away to the Knicks with a winning pedigree and takes them to the finals 1 time in 4 years losing to Lebron James who has 3 rings to his 6 and Wade's 3 rings along with Bosh or Amar'e Stoudemire

The Detroit Piston Actually did Draft CarMelo And Melo Was A Terrible Player for 2 Years in Detroit. Rip, Billups,Tashawn, Big Been And the Gang did win 2 or 3 championship during that time. But then they broke up and VINCE CARTER a Champion And NBA Finals MVP leaving New Jersey was traded to the Pistons. And As Far As LeBron he Wasn't that good of a rookie either but better than MELO still!!! These are the Answers to that Question! @SHOWTIME Basketball

Narrative on Melo would've been totally different. Plays no D, X. Selfish, X. No playoff success, X. No rings, X. I think it totally would've changed the whole narrative between Lebron and Melo. At the time of entering the league, Wade was mostly an uncertain player who potential the really developed towards the second half of the season, and it was mostly between Melo and Lebron for ROY. Lebron being on the East has definitely helped his career out tremendously, so imagine Melo also on the East. Melo with an aged Chauncey gave the Lakers a run for their money in the Western conference finals. Now instead of that it's Melo with Mr. Big shot and a squad of dawgs. I still think Lebron would've came out with the better overall career because of how he took care of his body, but the conversation would be SO MUCH CLOSER. The worst thing that happened to Melo was not ending up in Detriot. The second worse is him not taking his conditioning seriously enough early on in his career.

As a heat fan I hate to admit it. But they still win 2004. 2005 they make the finals loose in 7 to the spurs, they win there. Then my heat in 2006 beat them when they were 64-18 in 6 games in the conference finals. They probably win there also. Then 2007 they loose to cavs in conference finals in 6, that Cavs team sucks. They would make finals not sure if they would have beaten spurs but who knows. Then 2008 they make conference finals against big three Boston took them with 6. Maybe with Melo they beat them also.

And just as hypothetically the Pistons adapt to Carmelo's weak defense no ball movement play style. That's the thing about hypothetical situations, you can spin them both ways. Melo has had plenty of time in the league to spin a different story about himself.

This is actually a great WHAT IF because the Pistons taking Carmelo Anthony #2 was a REAL possibility at the time, it isn't a 20/20 hindsight type of thing like the Blazers passing over Michael Jordan with the #2 pick or the Pistons passing Dwayne Wade(its wrong to bring up Wade becauseNOBODY thought Wade should go #2 in that draft!!) A lot of people questioned the Pistons taking Darko AT THE TIME!! Carmelo gets ripped a lot because of how bad his Knicks teams were, but he was a generational type of talent(people may forget that Melo was an all-star caliber player as a rookie) like Rip Hamilton said. The Pistons were already a dominant defensive team and one of the best teams in the East in 2002-2003, imagine how great they would have been with a versatile 20PPG scorer like Melo? They probably could have went on a run where they won 3 in a row and/or 5 titles in 7 years, and Melo's all-time ranking/greatness would be WAY higher than it ended up being. Some of you in the comments brought up a good point about Rasheed Wallace, the Pistons probably would have had the best record in 2003-2004 at the trade deadline if they drafted Carmelo Anthony, and may not have traded for R.Wallace, but they still would have been a championship team regardless. C.Anthony's great inside-outside scoring, rebounding and 3-point shooting would have made them elite. About Larry Brown, its true that he had the old-school mentality and didn't like rookies or young players, but he would have seen Carmelo's talent at the rookie summer league and then at training camp, and would have given him big minutes immediately as the starting forward next to Tayshawn Prince. He wasn't going to play the "Sit And Learn, Youngster" mind games with Carmelo because Carmelo was just too good for that.

Honestly, i don't think melo would've fit with what the larry brown pistons were trying to be. Imo wade would've fit more, but it's really tough to correctly predict all these what-if scenarios; larry brown liked wade much more than lebron and melo while coaching team usa, but it's not like wade loved larry brown's coaching either.
