    one Melo isn't soft and Bargs is more fragile than soft dude just doesn't have the body strength like a Dirk for example

    two Melo can score inside and so can Bargs but both are jump shooters while they should drive more

    you gotta stop selling guys short

    I was a big fan-favorite of PF-David Lee however, when it came to stopping oponents from scoring inside I could never defend or justify Lee's poor defense in stopping oponents from scoring inside the paint. If the oponent miss the shot then Lee will get the defensive-rebound.
    Melo & Bargani has a long NBA career of letting oponents score inside the paint, which makes them a liability at PF, especially in the playoff, and in the 4th qtr. of regular season games .. u will see monitor-kicking and fire extinguisher knockouts when things dont go right.

    I recall Bernard King diving and falling on top of Dominique Wilkins, which put a stop to Dominique scoring inside the paint LOL

    From your other post I gather you want Bargs to play the 5. How is he going to to that if he can't guard the paint as a 4? And don't tell me you want him to play the 3.

    Every second Bargani is on the court PF-Kenyon Martin, and SF-Meta should be on the court with him, from preseason to regular season games.
    K.Mart & Meta strong leadership at positioning their bigmen teammates are what made them star-players in the NBA.
    Putting Bargani at the 5 in a steady lineup with K.Mart & Meta is a blessin for Barg, and a blessin for the team.
    Something new.

    HC Woody need to try something new by making Tyson, Amare, and Melo work-out in scrimage-games 2 or 3 weeks before training-camp. The Trio dont know how to defend together, score together, or screen & pass to one another. How long have the trio been teammates again???
