This is a blessing in disguise when STAT gets back mostly he should have around a week and a half to be the main option again and get some chemistry on the P&R with Lin. Let's just hope Amare recovers enough from his brothers death soon.
And then like most ppl have stated it gives the role players a chance to step up and build their confidence, while allowing Melo to heal up properly from all his injuries.
I understand how it works in theory, but considering the caliber of teams today, as soon as opposing teams see 4 of your teammates swing to the side, they know to collapse someone to trap you. If the opponent is smart, they'll still be between you and your team, preventing a pass and forcing you to abandon the play. But with 'Melo, he is usually dead-set in completing the Iso, usually putting up a difficult forced shot and not even getting fouled in the process.
Alley-oops though? (To any of your bigs.) Awesome.
Also -- "real talk" -- isn't that still McCool's schtick?
