I just want the Hornets to sign Melo so we can see what Melo shooting 40 shots a night looks like in 2019
Would be fun or a laugh.... Win/Win.
Could he go back to the Knicks? They need a power forward....

Because westbrook is a dynamic player who has changed his game multiple times in the face of scrutiny and hasn't played on a team as ready as the rockets. He's going to have a lot more lanes for him to attack and draw the second best guard defender.

Or...

He hasn't changed his game... Still can't shoot.... Doesn't move when he doesn't have the ball... Relies on athleticism that is fading and won't be able to handle being 2nd fiddle.

James needs the ball in hand and he needs shooters around him.
