I'd rather Felton go to the bench and have Shumpert slashing from the SG position, alongside Jason Kidd.



And in the end, if it doesn't work, then he has to be moved...we're not keeping Amare for him to be a 6th man. It's useless.

So you want to start Kidd and Amare, who we need to watch their minutes, and bench Felton, who we don't. And trade Amare because you don't like the psychology of him not starting).

Huh?

It shouldn't be about asking your best player to adjust his game to those around him. It should be building around your best players strengths. Carmelo's strengths are that he is the best post up 3 of all time and a guy you want in the post and midrange game
Melo doesn't want to play the 4, he is less efficient in the paint, he is getting blocked on 20% of his shots. Go see the 82games shot selection stats.

Melo wants to play the 3, shoot threes and jumpers and post up when there's a mismatch he can take advantage.

In which part of building around your best player strengths do you put him where he doesn't want to be?

I have never said anything about him playing the four- maybe you don't know so ill tell you, positions are defensive. HE NEEDS TO BE DEFENDING THREE'S

What I am saying though is he isn't the typical 3. He isn't a Lebron/Durant perimeter 3. He is so unique there isn't a name for it- opposite of a point forward more of a power 3. He is better the closer he gets to the basket, but in no way does that mean he should be a 4. Him close to the basket with a 3 defending him is best case scenerio. The only way to accomish that is a 4 or 5 who can play effectively on the perimeter and draw a big out of the paint to defend him

So many wrong.... First no he is not better the closer he gets to the basket, he is shooting a higher percentage form outside vs inside, he is blocked 20% of the times inside, he is not good at taking contact and score, people praise him for being fast getting up again, acting on his miss, that should tell you something on how he misses a lot. Great i'm repeating myself.

With a 3 defending him? And with a 3 defending him, there goes the quickness advantage he has with a 4 defending him, there goes the mismatch. And seriously if you think he would be great close to the basket with a 3 defending, what would stop the other teams from putting a 4 on him, and sending the 3 defend the stretch 4? Do you think they would be like "Oh shit melo is great close to the basket with a 3 on him, and there's nothing we can do!"

Yeah Melo at 4 and Bargs at 3, this guys wet dream. What a great team that would be.


oh and MELO DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY CLOSE TO THE BASKET!

i like the felton/chandler pick and roll. i like the prig/amare pick and roll.

amare can continue coming off the bench. he is doing fine from there. it's not as if he isnt finishing games. although one day, i would like to see him start again. it doesn't have to be anytime soon, maybe a month before the playoffs?

In a year's time, guy went from a strictly faceup big w/ no back-to-basket game to speak of to an Olajuwon protege

Gotta give props, he's really redefined his game...dude's been killing it down low so far
