Are you effing kidding me??? Melo is one of the TOP players in the ENTIRE league. He's no doubt elite AND a max player.

Would you agree that he could change the course of a franchise? Yes = Elite

Breaking down all his shots like that is meaningless. He can bring it to anyone in the league on any night. His mid-range game is excellent and he can get to the rim and draw fouls with the best of them. He's also a good rebounder. If he were playing for a bigger market we wouldn't even be having this conversation.

Melo=MAX No team would offer him less.
