He has all the similarities! He's the leader, the mentor, he's been through the wars, has won the ultimate battles, unflappable, the wisdom of generations of basketball's highest IQ. And not too mention a little left in the tank for at least one more epic battle. Melo is his Luke Skywalker as was Dirk. Kidd has the force with him, we've seen it time and time again... In all the clutch moments, he always seems to make the play that's needed. If its a steal, a pass, a 3 pointer, hell, I've even seen him make multiple blocks. His mental capacity for basketball is unmatched. What you guys think? I think he's Yoda in a Knicks jersey!
