https://www.nba.com/stats/lineups/a...ular Season&GroupQuantity=2&TeamID=1610612757 This dude is a -8 or more negative in every 2 man lineup except CJ, Nurk and Cov. It's actually impressive. What's worse, look at the defensive ratings for the most played minutes: 128.1, 123.7, 116.9, 111.4, 111.1. Don't worry, Enes isn't far behind: And before you give me the small sample size talk. YES, it's a small sample size, but this has been Melo for about 5-6 years now. It's nothing new, it's just a continuation of reality. This is the definition of unplayable, but of course since Stotts isn't going to stop playing him, maybe change up the lineups a bit so we stop hemorrhaging (there's no other way to describe this) points when he's on the floor. Start him over DJJ so he can play next to CJ, Nurk and Cov. And for gods sakes, stop playing Kanter and Melo at the same time. The Stotts/Olshey/Dame/CJ core is a good reminder why it's not always the greatest idea working with your close friends.
