    Makes a lot of sense for Melo.

    Would have made sense for Amare 10 years ago.

    LOL instead of working hard they choose the easy flashy route and work with a famous name.

    Hmmm, he already worked with him last year, as did Amare. Guess they're just trying to reinforce what they've "learned". Hakeem will be a busy man this summer.

    Not a huge Melo fan. Consider him a volume shooter.

    This is not their first time coming down to work with Dream... Dream has been a hired gun for a while now. ALL of the best players come down and work with Dream at one point are another _ Kobe, LeBron, etc. And if you got $50 Gs he'll probably teach you some post moves too, so you can dominate at the park.

    He's teaching positioning timing and getting them reps for muscle memory. IF they continue to practice, IT WILL benefit their game.

    His return to NBA spotlight hasn't been all that recent. Kobe trained with him, what, 5 years ago?
