Hmm... Lakers could still go far, but I don't know if they win it all. Not sure how Melo fits in the triangle offense. He's not the passer Bryant is. He's not even the scorer Bryant is either.

Lose both. Melo is not a good playoff performer.

Melo B2B Finals wins and 2X FMVP

If Melo joins the Heat, expect me to make retroactive arguments as to why Melo has always been better than Kobe.

So Melo played almost as good against other competition.. And Kobe murked him head to head. Denver had a very good team around melo and it wouldn't have been enough to overcome Kobe taking over games way more than melo could.

It'd be like if you switched MJ and Clyde's teams.. Clyde would have a better second option now and MJ would have the more balanced stacked team but MJ would still crush Clyde and Portland would win
