Here comes a "Melo didn't pass him the ball" comment in 5...4...3...2...1
He was useless because Melo thought he can beat Miami by himself so he decided to take 25+ shots every game and not pass to anyone.
You asked for it
But seriously,he was pretty much useless in the playoffs. But if we had someone who can attack the paint then he would have been much more useful because if defender must stay so close to him then he can't help out on defense.
