    the vote isn't public? wtf?

    Anyway, Tony Allen most likely defend melo, and may start or run a lineup of Holiday, Pierce, Allen, Aldridge, Favors to keep up with nash's fast-paced offense.. It's no problem for me to defend those guys and melo will have problems with Tony Allen... Henderson is pretty good defender to matchup with melo too..

    And


    Melo is selfish and will not share ball with nash or everyone in the team :grin:

    Tony Allen is not big or strong enough to guard melo, and my team has unselfish players around him. And, I have good post defense and won't have much trouble if I put out a lineup of

    Nash
    Allen
    Melo
    Noah
    Kaman. I think I would win thisslightly.

    Honestly, I would probably stick Tony Allen on Steve Nash and really run him ragged in this matchup. Kidd would be fine chasing around Ray Allen on screens since Ray can't really take anyone off the dribble anymore. I do like starting Jrue Holiday.

    Paul Pierce's defense is kinda underrated. He does a great job when healthy (which he is assumed to be).

    I like Jamers frontcourt and bench more.

    Close series but I see Jamers team pulling it out.

    Yes he will. My team is unselfish. My making that point, it shows that you do not watch basketball and are just reiterating stereotypes. If you watch Melo, he passes to players that don't dominate the ball. Nash will be the one bringing the ball up the court.... It's not like I have any other guys on my team to need the ball like Melo. My passing on my team is soo fluid, I have so much team chemistry and experience/leadership. I don't know what the voting will be like but I know that I have made the best TEAM that I have ever made. Nash and Allen can spot up if any help is drawn to Melo. Not to mention how good of a Nash/West PnR/PnP would be. Nash makes everyone better. You can pretty much take all my players and give them a +3 beside them because of Nash lol. Look what he did to Gortat, Joe Johnson, Marion, Amare. He will do wonders with West and will find opproutinities for others that they never had before.

    Nash/West PnR/PnP will be lethal.

    Kidd=Allen on defense. Yes, but I think the only reason I may win is because of the chemistry and absolute fluidity of my offense. In my opinion, my offense is almost imposible to stop even with your defensive juggernaut. Reason being is that it is just so fluid and work at all angles. Noah is a great passer. Nash just finds people, I can iso Melo or use him and Allen as spot up shooters. I also can run a picknroll or picknpop where West can use his strength/toughness or shooting touch. He is also a good passer, so I can use him to kick out to Nash and Allen where the Help collapses. All in all, good matchup; Jamers you have a great team; I hope I win this though.

    Other than pierce, I do not see anyone strong or big enough to guard Melo who is unstoppable on the block and one of the most physical players.

    And many people forget West. He used to average 21/11 and is a great leader and bring toughness and underatted defense. Also, Kaman. Kaman should not be a bench player in this draft. He has AMAZING low post moves and also averages 2 blocks a game. He is sooo valuable to me and makes my front court rounded with offense and defense.

    Stackhouse used to average 29.8ppg, should've drafted him with Jermaine O'Neal to form a 60 points duo.
