    Not that I don't feel Melo's pain there, but he shouldn't be shaking his head at other players doing that. He's not known for his effort and defensive IQ either.

    I am so happy this thread exists. I mean, I was thinking to myself "what does that htowngenius guy think on this matter?" Then he went ahead and solved the problem for me, laying it out on the line. So so glad we could get his input. This thread, now ranks at the top of my all time moments in life. Thank you sir.

    On a serious note: Carmelo would be our better version of Klay, focus on spot up shooting, occasional post up, and straight up D... imagine olympic Melo... hoopgasm 100%. Melo being the 3rd best option makes him 100000x more valuable and effective.

    Having melo catching the ball for an open three that Ryno gets all day or attacking a scrambling defense which Ryno got all day but clumsy convert is why you bring in melo.

    He's actually a better stylistic fit than Paul George would have been, atleast on offense.

    Imagine harden or cp3 running pick and roll with Capela with the other in the corner spot with melo in the pocket or up top.

    Now imagine cp3 getting into the paint, doesn't have the lay up or Capela lob so he passes it to James harden in the corner. Harden than has either and open corner three or he can attack the basket for a layup. Now let's take it further and harden attacks the Basket and flips it back out to melo for and open three. Or harden just swings the ball to melo immediately and melo gets to attack the basket with a scrambling defense.

    That right there has the entire big 4(cp3,harden,melo,Capela) with the chance to score An easy bucket.

    And I haven't even mentioned that Trevor Ariza or pj tucker will literally be wide open in the opposite corner for a wide open three and that's your last option.

    That's why you get melo and that's also why you can compete with golden state. No defense can defend that just like not defense can defend the warriors. You gotta score in bunches and also have multiple ways and players who can do it.

    I'm convinced that cp3/harden/Ariza/melo/Capela with Gordon nene and tucker off the bench is just as good as steph/klay/KD/DG/Zaza with iggy swaggy and Casspi.

    It doesn't look the same on paper with names But the results would be the same. When you have a team that talented the notion of only one ball really does come into play and you can't give cp3 harden melo an open look just like steph KD and klay. It's the same result.

    It would be a 50/50 series with golden state having the edge in that they have been together for a long time but houston has the big advantage with Gordon off the bench for instant offense and good d but also the center spot. Capela and nene are major upgrades over what the warriors trott out every game.

    I might be biased in fact I know I am but I do believe adding melo is the missing piece to truely contending for a title now.

    Puts us on and even playing field with the warriors imo at least offensively which I think is the only why to beat golden state anyways.
