Chris Broussard at his finest, I know. But this time, this particular article smells like truth... (unfortunately). I would agree that this story fits the facts so well, it COULD have been invented to do just that. And we can't know one way or the other.
But it does smell right. And if it is, jeeZUSS this team is so screwed (for now anyway).
As to the specifics in the article -- yeah, sure they need a coach who can control the stars and set down a reasonable set of rules for everyone to follow, on both ends of the court. And yeah, MDA is probably never gonna be that guy. But omg, Melo is WAY out of line too, if all this is true. Not sure who he thinks he is, but I AM sure he hasn't earned the right to even dream of acting like a prima donna on this team, at this time. It's not even close.
