Mentioning pg is right. You shouldn't want Carmelo playing the perimeter so much, but that's what you get when you have guards that can't shoot or create off the dribble.
The idea of fitting your best players around the others is crazy. It's the others that should be fit around Carmelo. And when you can see that they don't fit you exchange them for others- that's why they're called role players.
Nonsense, bargs started almost every game, JR still plays a ton and even Hardaway has gotten ample minutes...those guys are subpar.
We dont have role players, we have subpar players....and thats where it begins.
You build a team, this building around one guys doesnt work, unless that guys is good enough to do it all.
Role players can fit any system, which is why they hop from team to team and are utilized for their skills, thus building around THEM.
You think Miami hasnt built around their role player? Yes they have.
Chicago is being held together primarily because of their role players....for two years running.
The Knicks should not be so dependent on one player....build an actual team.
