I dont think you understand how good Billups Melo and Amare are in terms of excellency at there respected positions
billups is perfect because he doesnt present himself as the heir apparent best pg in the league, while melo and stat pride themselves on being just that at their respective positions.
Basically what I mean, is you have the barometer setter in billups
and the thunder and rain in melo and amare
all we need now is a few clouds
and we will be the perfect storm.
