I don't believe in that.

I believe if Woodson doesn't overplay Melo, Melo will have enough energy to provide 32-34 quality minutes. Copeland can play and fill in for Melo for 16-18 minutes.

This is why the Spurs are so successful.

Duncan, Ginobili, Parker all participate in defense and offense. Two way players = success.
