Clearly Melo

of course BX will go with the popular pick cause the media brainwashed these fools
It's probably the popular pick because one guy is the reigning three time scoring champion, while the other prides himself on being a scorer but has yet to get one, or average 30 in a season.

Durant scores easier now due to Westbrook and I think he may be a better 3 point shooter.
Melo has the total offensive package
Pull up, Post moves, Putbacks, Strength, Melo is better at creating his own bucket inside/out
Durant can only create his own shot over the defender due to his length.

Aging Billups? Billups destroyed Chris paul in the playoffs and him and melo led the charge to giving the hornets the worst playoff loss of all time. Chauncey was a top 4 or 5 mvp candidate with melo (who wasn't even in the conversation). Birdman in his prime was a shot blocking machine, Nene was a great third option quality player, plus another third option quality player in a young high flying jr swish and defensive stoppers afflalo/jones, plus ty lawson the prodigy coming up in the wings. He had some nice teams back then I used to eat n*ggas for lunch with them denver squads. Then n*gga had stat, a defensive player of the year, jr swish again, him and jeremy lin played more than 2 games, and jeremy lin is the reason the knicks even made the playoffs to begin with with that winning streak while they were injured. Knicks been tryna say they had the best frontcourt in the league, and now it's something else?

Nothing wrong with being the 3rd best scorer at your position. Melo is still an elite player.
billups was aging. birdman? you cant be serious. nene was always hurt. the rest of the guys you mentioned aren't even worth mentionting... either was birdman but o well..

knicks made the playoffs because of linsanity? a 6 game streak which in essence kept dantoni as coach for another couple weeks? that is more relevant and important to the knicks making the playoffs than their record after dantoni left and melo carried the team with no lin or stat?

the media has brainwashed so many people on here.

He was aging, but was the only mvp canidate on the team, and scored the most points of his career... Okay. I have a feeling you weren't watching too many denver games outside of the one year they went on a deep run.

I will now ask you, since melo is the only player to ever deal with a coaching change, or injuries, is that the reason why he has never gotten a scoring title or scored more points than kevin durant? It's because of everything but him?

Not even close imo, KD >> Melo

They are both great on offense, but Durant slight edge. And as far as defense goes, Melo barely plays any D while Durant is a good defender.

Basically, what you're saying is. Based off statistics, he's a better scorer than LeBron and Kobe too then, huh?

Durant can't score in the many different ways that Melo & Kobe can. He's not better in any way. He's good off the ball but that just may be it.

Yes that's exactly what I'm saying Durant IS a better scorer than kobe, he's the best scorer in the league right now, the three time reigning champion at it, with lebron a hairline behind him. You can say a guy can score in different ways and look cool doing it, but if he's not doing it better than the next guy, then it doesn't matter. PPG and FG% are cut and dry statistics, and one guy edges out the other.

So that's the reason melo didn't score more points than kd this year?
thats not relavent to what i was discussing. i admit i changed the subject somewhat but i had to respond to people posting nonsense to discredit melo.

which was basically saying the knicks roster was just as talented as okc's. saying melo had lin, smith, stat, chandler, etc despite the fact lin played like a month total with only a handful of games with melo. smith came over mid season, stat came into the season off, his bro died, he got hurt again, etc. "i know durant would flourish on the knicks" "durant and a prime iverson would go to the finals" as if melo played with anything close to prime iverson.

as far as the topic at hand, melo and kd are very different scorers. different players in general. durant has superior range, is a better catch and shoot scorer. melo is much more versatile and stronger down low.

as a pure scorer i'd give the edge to kd because of his range and catch n shoot ability but it's close. like i said they are different scorers.

only reason durant is considered a decent defender is his size/length. he's guarding wing players much smaller than him most of the time. melo doesn't play any D is another product of the media brainwashing people. melo is a good man on man defender. he guarded much bigger PFs when stat was hurt and did quite well. it's team defense as far as making rotations and overall awareness that melo is weak on D.

I was actually referring to when you said all Knick fans have are excuses but i'll answer your question....

You really gonna sit here and tell me that Antoni playing him outta position for a good portion of the season didn't effect his scoring?

You really gonna sit here and pretend him not getting hurt earlier in the season didn't effect his scoring?

You really gonna sit here and pretend him being the only scoring option and players getting hurt didn't effect his scoring?

Mind you i'm not really a Melo fan but some you n*ggas are just ridiculous with yall statements.

who cares how many "ways you can score" if you're not better at doing it than other players? if you cannot score more points than somebody else AND you cannot score more efficiently than somebody else, then you have no case for being a better SCORER.

what you're looking to say is that he's a more versatile scorer, but he's not better at it. rasheed wallace was a more versatile scoring big than shaq, but shaq's career points per game almost double his and his FG% dwarfs his because shaq was brutally effective. there's a big difference. and it's not like durant isn't a versatile scorer in his own right, so this isn't even an extreme case we're dealing with. figures it's all knicks stans and nobody else though.

Tough choice, I say Melo by a slim margin. KD is the 3 time reigning scoring champ, that doesn't necessarily mean he can get his buckets as easy as Melo. Both are clutch and both can light yo a.ss up. Melo can go into the post though and he doesn't rely solely on his jumper throughout games like KD does @ times.
