Common,he isn't a God.
Melo could score 30-40 every night but D'Antoni always sits him when he is hot and leaves him in when he is cold
How many times did he scored like 10-15 points in the first quarter and played only 2 minutes in the 4th ? Too many.
And MD'A routinely sits him for a looooooooooong time in the 2nd quarter.
Coach's substitution pattern a late game plays he draws up are a little confusing also. I know he's monitoring everyones mpg, but if someone's in the zone, ride them until it doesn't work anymore.
