I don't understand how this celebrity dickhead couldn't see that attacking the basket or moving the ball and getting it back once open he would be more effective. This game should be done within 48 minutes of playing time and we should have outscored Denver... it's great Carmelo's clutch but that was him who's responsible for getting us into crunch and double OT...
Gallo outplayed him by playing wisely, look what happened with Amare, he played pretty okay but he didn't shoot even once in the 4th and both OT's, because Lamelo was chucking... Denver won this game without FIVE of their major players...
Carmelo is a defensive wizard because I've never seen anybody shut down Stoudamire as effectively as he has by simply denying Amare the ball. Did he ever pass the ball to him, just once? It's ridicolous how selfish he is. Most overrated "superstar" in NBA, hands down.
