Lakers are not built to out score people, they build to win championship. Lakers are not better with Melo than Bynum.
First of all, I understand that Bynum has injury issue, but even half legged Bynum is a better fit than Melo. Lakers have enough scorers. Kobe can put up 50 and so is Pau Gasol. Odom is not getting enough touch. I can see that Melo along with Kobe, and as Kobe is dribbling Melo stole the ball from Kobe and shoot it. Because that is the only way that he'll get his shot. Lakers are almost impossible to score against with Bynum in the middle. While Lakers would be scaring good in scoring with Melo but Melo wont' guaranteed championship, but a healthy Bynum will sure get them tot he final for sure.
Nuggets, Lakers and Knicks all know it's not happening. However, this is a merely simple ploy by the Nuggets management for Knicks to sweetened the offers and for Melo so see. They can come to Meo and say that Knicks do not really want you or think highly of you since they are unwilling to part Landry and Gallo for you. Next to that, by adding Melo Lakers will pay close to 6 millions dollar more. Their payroll right now is at $91 million already. At the end of the day money talks.
Anyway, anyone think Melo is a good fit for Lakers?
