we got 2 7 footers up front, may not get blocks but can definitely alter shots
The only thing now missing to be the perfect lineup built around Carmelo is a gaurd that can shoot.
What you just said is exactly what I'd been asking for the whole time- Carmelo is not best from the perimeter as the best shooter in the lineup. HE needs to be closer to the basket, efficiency and playmaking for others will both go up
I know many of you think he couldn't do it but the highest ceiling lineup the Knicks could put out has shumpert in place of Felton. And you'd get a better jr smith if he wasn't needed to be the primary scorer/creator.
