Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
You really have to be a nontraditional PG to help out your best player that utilizes isolation so often. I mean, yeah, a better point guard could technically put the ball at the elbow for Mello and let him do his thing. So, by default the point guard ends up being a spot up shooter and halfcourt ball handler (this isn't even always true).
Carmello is not a pick and roll player, Carmello is a decent spot up shooter but he rather prefer to put the ball into iso and Carmello is usually the end of the line for the Knicks offense. Don't get me wrong, Carmello is amazing, but if he would just slightly change his game to improve those around him, oh, and play even a little bit of defense it would make me mark.
