Default lin NEEDS melo cause...

other teams are already gunning for lin but they wont be able afford to put their best perimeter defender on him.
melo takes away the option of putting iggy, marion or lebron on lin because melo will have a field day...

But now you need your best perimeter defender on Melo instead of letting a scrub guard Bill Walker and throw the best you got at Lin. That was the point of this thread...

what kind of guy was going to guard both melo and lin?

any guy that gets put on melo (presumably a pretty bug strong wing) isnt going to be quick enough to guard lin anyway.

There are a million reasons why Melo's return will be good for Lin. Its a shame that the media and some stupid fans are trying so hard to rip the situation apart.

yeah the media overblew the whole thing. Melo doesnt do iso ball as often as lebron or kobe

but i definitely see Lin's offence limited by both Amare and Melo

come on, look at Bosh. let's be realistic

Completely different situation. Lin's game should grow and expand with Melo and Stat. They just give me more options.

it depends on how you look at it.
we could also say that having amare and melo EXPANDS his offence.
