Well let's say we took Melo instead. You think our chemistry would have worked out the way it did?
Melo is a ball DOMINANT player. He would be on a squad with players that fit perfectly as a TEAM.

So while it doesn't seem to be the best pick, I think that pick was the pick we needed to win a championship and go back to the finals the next year, and compete continually in the ECF.
Yes, third sounds about right.
