When will you guys realize Melo will run whatever the coach calls
its not like he's out there just taking the ball and not passing
also remember what Ronnie Brewer said when he signed "you can't watch Melo you gotta move without the ball"
How about the lack of a facilitator to run a quality NBA offense, how about the coach not even putting in a quality offense at all
its funny because people always assume everything is about ball movement or ISO ball
they look at his FGA and say he's a chucker but in essence it's all wrong
players play the system installed if we ran an offense that dictated finding great shots instead of good ones and had a facilitator no one would be talking about this
get a facilitator and install a real offense and then see how much things change
"Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand."
"Everyone wants a champion's power, but no one wants his pain." - Amar'e Stoudemire
Now he does get trigger happy but we have a simple offense that's why there's no facilitating and everyone goes one on one not just Carmelo
its like people have no IQ, like when they say Melo thrives in ISO he really doesn't he's a beast in the pick n roll, off screens and a solid spot up shooter but unless you have an offense and a point guard you're not going to see him thriving at his best.
However I do wish he picked his spots better and let the game come to him
Its the opposite .. Coach Karl 2012-13 Denver Nuggets performance u can compare to Coach Karl Sonics with (the Glove) Payton & Kemp .. uptempo transition team -vs- ISO-Melo slow-ball jumper team .. the opposite
Melo forced his way to be our PF in the 2012-13 season, but Melo position himself as a SG all season.
We went a season without a PF .. lucky we were in a weak eastern conference without any bigmen.
Melo or JR touching the ball on every offensive-play made us a poor facilitator team.
Melo & JR never moving without the ball or having the ability to catch the ball while moving made us a one-offensive-play team all season.
We had a 82 game season of ....
Averaging 4 points per game on fastbreaks, getting out-rebounded 4 out of 5 games, letting teams score in the paint at will .... all this blame goes on our poor performance PF .... having a PF (Melo) grab a defensive-rebound then dribble the ball down-court, rather than throw the ball to the PG, or throw a lob-pass to the teammate already down-court leads to the poor poor facilitating for our team.
Woody will yell and act the fool screaming at Copeland for making one mistake at the PF spot, but Melo makes 40 minutes worth of mistakes at the PF spot and Woody just stand there looking stupid .... Melo rules the Knicks...
And Camby came into the league as a PF.
It looks to me like GM Grunwald filled the PF position well for the 2012-13 season.
And u dont need a source to know why PF-Kenyon Martin went from max-salary to 10 day contract...
Melo also posted a very nice opponent PER at the 4 so you're off again
He also shot 50% at the rim which is fine
He was also thriving as the pick man in the pick n roll/pick n pop off again **** boy
As for boxing out, how is one to judge that, you're a ****ing idiot for real, have no proof in anything you say
I think your parents were cousins
He's good at putting back his own misses, that's about it.
50% at the rim is trash.
