Also, in regards to the playoffs, you act like his supporting cast is even comparable to LeBrons, teams knew to focus on him because he didn't have as many options to help him out,
I agree that Melo should play off ball, but I do not agree he needs to lower his usage rate significantly.
No, it isnt a reliable part of his game. He can do it, just not as much as you would think. Which is why he relies on his iso jumper.
He has never been a great playoff performer. Out the first round twice. Second once.
You can blame his team, but alot of the time he never plays that great.
He doesnt need the ball in his hands. Unless he looking to score immediately. Until that happens he will never win a ring.
