in amar'e and stat you have essentially the same thing - two one-dimensional players who are horrific passers. how is that supposed to work again?
i think you can get by having one black hole on your team (personally i prefer melo).
but two? that'll never work in this game.
So why isn't our team allowed "time to gel"? They've been playing together for less time than the Heat has. Furthermore, it's been a carousel at pg and theres been moving parts all over the place. Also, the Thunder have 2 guys who are primary scorers and they have one of the best records in the league. Just curious about your thoughts on that
