Lol. The Melo hate. I think he'd make their offense really good. Every year in the playoffs with Rose, on the offensive end, it was basically 'someone has to help rose'. Think Melo had the same issue at Ny. After Smith shat the bed.
Even with Rose out.. I'd still think they'd dominate. Melo going to a tough defensive team makes things scary. It shines his amazing scoring... hrs not Rudy gay. He's not an avg scorer. You kinda want him to score instead of anyone. He's pretty much league history good at scoring.
Imagine if Rudy in our team scored at about 10% fg higher, then like 10 more points. We'd be near Heat level right now. Imagine the best defensive coach and team with that scoring machine.
And Rose would be 2nd option. He's not mvp Rose anymore.
