Melo has been quiet through the first 4 preseason games so far. While he has been performing well, his voice hasn’t come up. Despite a bad offensive showing by the rest of the Lakers, Carmelo had a great night out against Phoenix. He ended the game with 17 points in just 16 minutes, shooting 50% from the field.

One thing Melo had made his name for was his rebound antics. While grabbing a clear rebound, he yells, and that has become his staple. And now the Lakers fans got the taste of it.
