At 6'8 230, Melo is one of the most prolific offensive talents in the league and I feel he could be used in more ways than what he is.
The way I see it, we should have Melo at the point forward like Lebron in cle, or mcgrady in Orl, or bird did in Bos, or Magic in LA. (yea magic was the starting point but he was the size of a forward)
We can have a combo of TD, billups, fields, and mason in the game with STAT n Melo, but just let Melo bring the ball down and start the offense.
Once he swings the ball out the DT, we put the defense at a disadvantage because we have 3 point shooters who can swing to the open man, knock down shots, and STAT has the paint to himself to go to work when he gets it.
If we need a bucket down the stretch then we iso Melo on the wing where he likes it.
STAT maybe the heart and soul of this team, but to win we have to take advantage of Melo more to get oppertunities at easy and wide on buckets for the TEAM.
We dnt have to post Amare up, but get him closer to the bucket, and let him handle the ball less. The farther away from the basket he is, the more he shoots the jumper.
Dont get me wrong he can hit that 15-18 footer, but he is too athletic to settle for that shot. Make him get closer to the block and dominate downlow, he automatically attacks when he is around the cup.
It would be nice to see our team go at the opposing team, its rare they're bigs are in foul trouble because all we do is shoot the damn ball.
Im not blaming the coach, I would just rather see us USE our stars to make the team better as well as winners.
