I'd say if you gave them 2 years to play together like all the other teams they may win by 30 every game but I'm not so sure thats true because of all the egos involved. Melo, Lebron and Wade seemed to be only concerned about how much they shoot/score when playing in the olympics instead of making the easy/right passes, especially Melo and Lebron. Kobe bought into it, I dont get why those 2 schmucks havent yet.
yeah, thats exactly what I mean, the egos kill them, I would take a thousand times a guy like Battier before Melo. Melo is better, but in a team full of scoring beasts a guy like battier would be awesome.
Im pretty sure they will win this year thanks to Kobe, but they should have tried to build a more balanced team.
Put duncan, Tayshawn, kobe, battier, billups, paul, etc..would be a true team.
In reality the only guysI cant stand there is Melo and lebron.
