Melo works more in the post or is shooting jumpers from 15 ft. If he played with the ball in his hands and dished more than he would be the answer. He has the size, he's just too selfish of a player

ive always liked saying josh smith, but obviously lebron is better at pretty much every aspect of the game. i think j smoove is proportionally worse though in most aspects. so he might not be closest, but he could be most similar if that makes sense.

i agree. which is a decent start to being close skill wise. similar size/athletic guys have similar skill sets.

im not saying the answer is j smith, but the argument can be made as effectively as it could be for anyone else.

Derrick Rose is probably the most accurate answer.
