Default Re: Melo "dominant" in team USA's first practice

Bosh: 9-13 FG, 0-0 3FG, 8-10 FT, 26 Pts, 14 Reb, 3 Ast, 4 St, 1 Blk, 0 TO, 0 PF

So basically, Melo's 5 extra points > 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 St, 1 Blk, -2 TO, -3 PF.
All Melo really did was take and make a few more shots. Melo is overrated because scoring is overrated.

sometimes its not all about number, but the impact...

Like the scrimage game they had, Melo actually scored more than Kobe, but Kobe was the main man cause he scored the last few points with clutchness..

numbers dont say it all
