Everyone wanted Melo to adjust to him, and that was false. Yes, Melo need to adjust. **** yes. BUT They needed to adjust to each other. He was going to turn Melo into basically a spot up shooter. That's not optimizing talent. Plus it made him have to do so much that ultimately he broke down. I mean we asked him to do a lot. 40+ minutes, defend, have the ball at all times, drive and take hits.
