Melo or STAT?
I say Melo, he is a pure scorer and will be the number one option and our finisher. Is this instantly Melos team alongside Amare or does he have to put in dues as Knick?
PS Billiups should be really good(if he is not bought out) for the next 2 years.
Wow.. we get to actually have this convo. Amazing how far we've come..
For now it's Amare as Melo gets fully acclimated. Long-term, I'm really not sure..
Melo plain and simple it's in his DNA to hit winners and score
We get to rest STAT some
Roger Mason Jr will quietly be our number 1 option.
It's Stats team, it takes more than being the number 1 option to be a leader. The number 1 option is your best scorer, your most clutch player, that man is Melo and that's exactly why we just traded what we did for him to be exactly that!
STAT & Melo will share an equal amount of touches but it will be Melo w/the ball in his hands in the closing seconds of a game if we need a game winning shot.
Definitely Melo. I'm wondering if he'll actually move the ball in the system. If he moves the ball, they will score a lot of points... that is... while the starting line-up is out there.
We have no legitimate center on this team, anymore. Scary.
Closing games out, and as a general rule, its Melo. Unless Amare isnt being blanketed (like he always has been). Melo will free him. Ideally you feed to STAT. Unreal finishing %s from.where we will be looking to have him.
In actuality Amare will get a lot of crunch time opportunities, even if Melo is option1.
It will be pretty balanced ultimately...imo.
It will be interesting to see if Fields assumes a #3 role..
Chauncey & Fields will get their share of open shooting opportunities with teams keying in on Melo & STAT every night. It's gonna be great to see this team grow together. We finally have a real team we can be proud of.
Gotta go with whos got the easier matchup and whos more efficient on that particular night. You cant really have the same number one option every night when u got melo and stat on the same team.
