Melo is one of those guys who is really good on his own but he doesn't make his team better.
I dont think Melo will ever be on a championship team as the #1 option
I hear this a lot and tend to disagree. Isolation players can win and have often. What Melo needs is a cast around him that opens the floor. A couple of shooters that can spread and a Post that can step out and draw his defender or stay inside effectively.
Currently I just don't see the cast there. JR Smith takes too many contested shots with his man right on him. When he takes these isolation jumpers or drives iso he is essentially taking shots away from Melo; a player who does these things more effectively.
Chandler is extremely limited offensively allowing his man to loosen up on him at time to help on Melo
Absolutely hate the MWP addition. When he was on the lakers it would kill me to see some of the stuff he would throw up with Kobe on the floor. Absolutely inexcusable shots for a player of his caliber
If Shumpert can keep his 3pt% up like last year I think he is a great piece with Melo
Interested to see how Bargnani fits in as well
