Melo's greatest asset as a scorer is his ability to create for himself, create in broken down plays as the go to guy, and to be the go to guy in crunch time spots who can ice games (and play series').
His volume scoring isn't what defines him as a good player -- if anything, volume scoring is what has marked his downfall from being a great player.
Amare has played like **** for a while, tho...but he seems to be kicking up his gears some, so hopefully he can regain his scoring dominance.
Stoudemire was possibly the best inside finisher in the entire NBA, up until this year, and one of the most efficient scorers as a result.
Ideally, we run a fast paced offense with lots of possessions -- that lets everybody eat. STAT with the type of shot volume that makes him a 22+ scorer with .550+ fg% efficiency, and leaving Melo with enough shots to be a 25ppg scorer, based off him finishing shot clock possessions/mid range game/and playing off the double or tripple Effective STAT would receive on the inside.
In theory, this should be possible. But you need both the PG to run the offense and push the pace -- which we just recently got.
And you need all the players' to buy into it -- which includes no laziness, and an understanding and respect for spacing and ball movement.
