I like and respect Chauncey for what he was part of here, but he definitely "toots his own horn" a lil much. You will consistently hear him talking about how he's a leader and is going to do this or that to help his team. And then you see him taking long contested 3's early in the shot clock and getting technical fouls? His leadership is exaggerated, at least in his own mind. His shot selection is very poor sometimes and his decision making isn't always great. Which sadly seems to fit with this team. If they just played "smarter" and more controlled basketball, they could likely win a championship.
And for all the blame going to Melo, who else really came to play this series for Denver? Chauncey had pretty good stats, but where was his "leadership"?
