He may be past his prime and is nearing the end of his career but Houston is in for a rude awakening if they think this does anything for them. Like usual, the glamour of a D'Antoni offense wears quickly due to poor defense and a system that is very hard to get year in year out success. Not saying it's an awful system but it is not Golden State quality. I gave it a chance this year but you can just see the flaws once again showing as they have at MD's previous stops.
Someone else will pick Melo up as a bench piece or he hangs them up. Absolutely a HOFer who is underappreciated for what he did in Denver in a loaded west. The move to NY, injury etc etc and the window closed. Be funny if Golden State gave him a look...
Did you watch last year at all? They had the Warriors on the ropes until Paul's injury. There is plenty of evidence that his system works. He was a Amare' injury and a Nash injury away from beating the Spurs. He made it tough on them with Boris Diaw at center. Boris Diaw?? And BTW, the Warriors play almost the same offense.
