His general handle, and possibly impacts on his passing and catching may all be impacted.
Just think of STAT and his bandage wrapped hand in the playoffs... more than a few fumbles.
STAT had a huge laceration in the palm of his hand. Did you see that tweeted pic of his injury? That **** was vicious. Melo has 5 stitches in his finger. If he plays, its shouldn't effect him too bad. Guys play with messed up fingers all the time in this league, Kobe did it for like 2 straight seasons. Ronnies doing it right now.
Melo should play just for the attention he brings on Miami's defense. He will spread the floor. If he cant shoot or handle properly, then he can still be a floor spreader and cause Miami's defense to guard him.
Yet another national TV game that may be ruined due to a star player sitting out. Stern must be very pleased. lol I think melo should at least suit up and go out there even if he does not play alot. Come on this is a huge statement/showcase game for the NBA. To have it ruined would be a huge blow
The future Kevin Love James Harden,JaVale McGee and Mike Conley 2005 Record 59-23 Result- Lost WCF
2006- 59-23 Result-Lost in the 2nd round
2007- 48-34 1st round exit :
2009- the full rebuild starts
If Melo doesnt play I hope Woody gives Cope some big minutes. I wanna see what he can do in the spotlight against a top team
He should give Cope some mins anyway he was abusing Beasley the other night. I think hes a tough cover ....and may give Haslem some problems. We have a talented team....Woodson have to experiment a little.
