very mixed feelings on melo, part of me does want him to be a laker.
i just don't know how he's gonna beat a team that has either durant or lebron on it. on top of that, he's not getting younger. at 30 years olds, he's probably got another 2-3 years left in those legs until all he'll be able to do is mostly shoot jumpers. and let's not forget the volume shooters that both kobe and carmelo are. they both will average about 50 shots between then, one of them will have to change their game and shoot no more than 15-18 shots a game, will kobe or carmelo do that?
I pretty much agree with this, I just don't know if he can bring us a championship.
At the same time, if we don't land Melo, I don't see why Pau would stay. I'd rather be able to compete now, even if it means we don't get the chip.
Funny, cuz if you asked me that 2 weeks ago, I would have said screw melo and would rather take a chance at rebuilding and sucking for another year, but the thought of a repeat of last year sounded so miserable
PG - Kobe - Melo - Randle - Pau
If no Melo, i hope we can land Stephenson
