    You mean if we could only have one star? Or a star added to this team?

    I'd still take Melo. He may not be the best player in the league, but he's great and I'm sticking by him.

    If you mean that we could add one star to the roster we have today i would take CP3.

    If we just could have one star i would take Melo without hesitation.

    CP3 is a good one. I would go with Dirk Nowitski, great addition to the team. He's a real leader, clutch, and a big threat. If only.

    Nowitzki from 2 or 3 years ago would be a great addition. But today i don't think that he has much left in the tank after his injury (i hope he proves me wrong).

    On the other hand. We all see what CP3 is capable of doing on daily bases. Plus he's good friends with Melo.

    Not taking into account Knicks bias it'd have to be Kevin Durant. Top 3 player in the league and the youngest one to boot.

    I like the pics, I was going for the power forward position being in need of one. The Knicks have Felton but see CP3 being a way better pickup than an old Dirk. Reason I thought of Dirk was because of Kidd and Chandler. Another player I would think be great is Kevin Love rebounding scorer.

    Hmmmm Adding a player.

    Two guys I'd love on the Knicks is Rubio and Rose, but we'll have to see how they are once they're healthy enough and develop a rhythm.

    I think I'll go with Durant otherwise. He scores a lot catching and shooting so he wouldn't clash with Melo.

    JVG said about KD natural born scorer

    imagine Melo and Durant in 1 team. U can drop STAT and even Copeland when that duo playing for one team.

    Definitely Durant or CP3

    If we added Durant, im not sure if he would play PF or Carmelo. But either way I think it'd work very well. Durants a good rebounder, very unselfish...I mean the guy even lets Westbrick take more shots then him.

    Chris Paul is one of the GOAT point guards. I love everything about his game, where would the Clippers be without him? I'd say somewhere between 6th and 8th in my opinion

    Our rebounding is mainly an issue when Melo and JR shots aren’t falling consistently. They shoot a lot of jumpers... which in most cases create long rebounds and fast break opportunities for the opposition. More ball movement should remedy this; it will get everyone involved and create better shots. When you shoot too many long balls the rebounding will become an issue…even if you have a K. Love on your team.

    I think adding more scoring to the team (in the PF position) would be better simply because the added bigman will create more shot selections, therefore less rebounds due to making easier baskets. Plus, Durant/Lebron not only adds offense...they add height, spreads the defense, plus adds defense and rebounding.

    Although having Durant would be awesome, I don't think he reallt fits into this team. Melo is the main scoring option and although they played together in the Olympics there are better options if another superstar was to be added to this team right now.

    Either a PG or PF would be the best fit for this team, so I'd like CP3. Marc Gasol is also a great shout for the blocks, rebounds and interior defence next to/backing up Tyson.
