I don't care if Melo is a stick figure, I'm still going to make fat jokes, because I don't like to move on, I don't really like him, and it's easy and fun. Still doesn't change my serious belief that so far in his NBA career he has not been in as good as a shape as he could. If he truly is in peak shape now, fine, watch me be proven correct and he proves to be an even better player.
And no, in all seriousness, Gil played 48 minutes per game in the playoffs, and played over 42 mpg during the regular season. There isn't much of anybody in this league in better shape than him, much less Burger King over in Denver. He was originally in high demand by colleges for track and field.
Gil in the best shape? Is it fact or fiction that his production tails off as the game goes on. Yeah he plays a lot of minutes, but more out of necessity not because he doesn't suffer at all from those minutes. And if you ask me, he's not very fast either. About as quick as Andre Miller and that's it.
