Not to discredit his performances, but it's getting a little ridiculous we haven't played good comp or anything.
Melo is getting what looks like a lot of simple shots and good looks, but whats impressive IS how open he's getting. He really is finding angles that only maybe Kobe could find on the court without the ball. He's finding some insane cuts to get open for his 5 foot jumpers.
He's definitely earning the shots that he's getting. he's not ball hogging, he's just working and getting wide open. so i dont think a lot of people you listed above could be getting the same looks.
