Unless Shump turns into a borderline all star I don't see us getting better. Not to mention that we are so dependent on one player, what if he gets injured or decides not to bring it like he is doing this year?
I don't know what Melo is doing differently. Maybe I am right and its the supporting cast fitting him, maybe others are right and he has just improved his game but it doesn't look like it to me.
Whatever it is, this team works extremely well. I don't have a lot of confidence in it working as good next year.
