This team is literally playing .500 ball. The hot, championship-like start is schewing everyone's view on this team.
Some fans say others 'overreact' at losses. But the truth is were 14-13, a shade above .500 since mid-December.
Melo and Chandler are cornerstones for different reasons, but people need to wake up on this team. The defensive intensity just isn't there and the return of Amare (who has done well) has killed Chandlers offensive game.
Personally, I think we have some of the guys we need. Melo, Chandler, JR off the bench, Novak as a specialist.
But this team needs a major deal if we want any shot of beating the Heat in Carmelo's prime. What it would take, who knows. But a guy like Kevin Love would be perfect for spacing on offense and rebounding.
