When people double team Iverson, they don't leave Melo open, or vice-versa. They're a double team offensive threat, like Dirk and Amare would be. When you double team one of the team, your second task is to make sure the other offensive threat can't get easy points. You don't double team Iverson and guard Camby while Melo is easily waltzing his way into the paint for an easy layup. You guard who is the biggest offensive threat, in order.
If Dirk had an Amare type player then other teams would have to worry about the paint and that would give Dirk more outside shots...
Which he loves, right? Shooting. He looooooooves shooting. He loves it enough to shoot over 6"8 players rather than post them up to the rim.
No point in even talking about this anyway. Enough "If Dirk had Amare" stuff. He doesn't have Amare. That's a fact. "What ifs" don't mean anything.
I meant by a purely statisticle stand point. The Heat struggled as a whole thoughout the whole season due to major injuries to Wade, Willianms and Shaq not to meniton, payton and Kapano. Walker and Posey were deactivated for a few games and Riley took a leave of absencse. And if you want to be technicle, the Heat were 18-14 with Wade and without Shaq so Wade did indeed lead the Heat to an above .500 record.
