Sure it's not easy to find stretch 4/5's, but it's even harder to find this dominant of a power 3
LOL this just shows your lack of knowledge to this game. Do you realize that stretch 4s are generally soft or small because the thinner/smaller you are, the better your shooting stroke is. So you have to sacrifice toughness just to accomodate melo. Sorry but youre not winning any chip with your stupid idea unless you get a dirk(who will turn melo into a 2nd option) as a stretch 4 or you have shaq/duncan as your 5 to compensate for your lack of toughness at the 4. Bargnani/scola aint getting it done. Theres a reason why those guys are inefficient/low impact players. Even kevin love whos considered a superstar is a low impact player because of his low efficiency. Power forward means POWER not soft and they are the ones who wins in this league. Thats why amare has been competing against the elites like duncan, dirk, oneal, etc while your boy melo is competing against fellow losers like carter, mcgrady, iverson with the title of lowest winning % in the playoffs. LOL Only idiots like dolan would build around melo when his history has already shown he cant win in this league. Thats why denver decided to cut costs and just there for entertainment because they already knew melo isnt the guy to build around.
