    My favorite Melo stats playing in Hou.

    Melo averaged one assist per hour.

    Rockets were allowing 10.1 more points per 100 possessions with Melo on the court.

    40.5% FG (same as OKC stats)
    32.8% 3P%
    68.2% FT%
    Last thing to leave an older player is his
    shooting. Melo is done.

    Melo was getting bad while still with NY.
    The OKC experiment failed.
    Melo was toast in Hou.

    That's the problem. He's not gonna accept coming off the bench for 12 minutes per game. No one in their right mind would take Tolliver over Melo as a basketball player in a vaccuum, but even in this interview, he said how coming off the bench was such a ego hit. But he was still playing 29 mpg in his ten games at Houston. I can't imagine how he would react to getting a third of those minutes while backing up Zach/Mario.

    I honestly wish we would sign him. I think he’s been humbled...and I think we still need a little more firepower even if it’s just in small stretches

    We loaded up on poor defensive players.

    Our offense will be awesome.

    I wouldn't want Melo even if he accepted 12mpg role. I doubt he would be happy with that though.

    Poor defensive players? Whiteside? Hood? They still have Nurk. Collins is a good defender.
    Not disagreeing with you at all about Melo though. 10-12 mins at most.

    Yes, let him come here and win a championship so that we can nostalgically bump this thread with highlights of him in the finals every few years
