but seriously looking at Webbers reasoning it comes down to two things: First, the O and D ratings for these two teams. Now, which would Melo an offensive powerhouse with limited defensive impact compliment better:
Off Rtg: 111.0 (4th of 30) ▪ Def Rtg: 106.3 (13th of 30)
Off Rtg: 102.5 (28th of 30) ▪ Def Rtg: 100.5 (2nd of 30)
and then we have coaching:
I mean is that even a contest?
You give Thibs a Rose and Melo next season I guarantee he gives us a top 6-7 offense at worst, and still a top 3 defense. Whats McHale going to do to improve HOU's D with Melo? Are they really going to improve over 4th rated O?
Melo is the ideal player the bulls should get. I have been saying the bulls would be better off with 3 perimeter threats + taj and noah. that is a championship lineup.
What i wrote in my first post in this thread was a response to CWebb on the bulls offense. The bulls offense sucked, even with Derrick Rose. Mainly because thibs built his system emphasizing his defense way too much.
