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.
No this shows you can't even see what you have here. Carmelo is the best inside playing 3 maybe ever- and you want him to play the perimeter so that your "power forward" has "power" to him? You are an idiot because you can't see that Carmelo is power- "power 3".
A Bargnani level talent would make the team unstoppable by playing Carmelo around the hoop while the defenses had to cover a big on the perimeter that could drop 20-30 on you if you don't or even if you double down low.
Sad part Is that you probobaly can't even recognize that with Carmelo, amare, and chandler there is just too much of a mess of defenders in the paint to ever really be most dangerous. You take a guy out of that paint and 2 on 2 with Carmelo/chandler is more power than you'll ever need out of a pf.
Who cares if they are thin- if they can shoot and are covering the 4- how much defensively are they giving up from amare?
