How is this a discussion? KD is only 23 and has 3 scoring titles, not to mention he shot 51% last year. Better scorer: YES, More efficient: YES. KD does all this while not being a black hole on offense, which leads to team success. So KD All-DAY

So what your saying is......

you would take Durant over Melo if you were a GM and they were both in the same draft class...hypothetically speaking?

Most definitely.

they're equal... Melo is better on the block and KD is better at "circus shots"... Both have ice cold jumpers and can go for 50 on any given night... Melo's laziness is the only reason why this is being discussed... Y'all must didn't see the lightworks melo put on in the olympics coming off the bench... but i fu*ks with kd and melo...


Melo's work ethic at times is the only reason why this discussion is being had....

The comments in this thread is ridiculous... I feel like bumping this thread until everyone fully understands why Melo is a better scorer than Durant. Everyone who watches basketball knows that Melo DOES NOT get any superstar calls. He gets hacked and fouled all the time but gets no Lebron / Durant treatment. If he did he would get to the line the most in the league which would dramatically increase his PPG. Melo is the most clutch player in the league statistically over Kobe Lebron Durant etc. Put Melo in OKC style offense with a top 5 pg and defensive beast in Westbrook how could he not do the same thing Durant is doing. We cannot say Durant is a better spot up / catch and shoot player because Melo was never given an opportunity to be that type of player . Melo has the best midrange in the league...best pull up..best jab step..most efficient in his drives... most unstoppable when hot (except Kobe) ....you guys need to watch this man play and stoP listening to the media

I wouldn't say Lazy....I would say uninspired ...Melos help in Denver was an old Iverson and Chauncey Billups. Best in NY was A half a.ssed Amarr Stoudemire and inconsistent as they come JR Smith... Throughout his career he has never had a Wade..a gasol.. a Westbrook caliber support so the scrutiny on Melo has got to stop

i feel you on that one... but melo had a legit shot in 09 when the nuggets gave up against the lakers... that team there would have stomped orlando worse than the lakers did... but melo's nonchalant-ness on defense will have him waste his prime losing early in the playoffs... every time he plays lebron, he light that man up for 30+ but he doesn't try to stop him either... he thinks like "ok, he just got a dunk, let me go down and hit a 3 to cancel it out..."

if he doesn't get better on defense, at least hit the boards a little harder to make up for it

He has NO scoring titles, has NEVER averaged 30, and has been getting outscored by KD for years who has also been doing it more efficiently. I love melo but it's a cut and dry argument, y'all arguing absolutely nothing. Just because he has more moves it doesn't mean sh*t if it doesn't translate to PRODUCTION, who cares how pretty you look shooting the ball or if you're doing it left handed or right handed if your scoring less than the guy next to you, and less efficient at that. Did we all go to school here? 3 is a higher number than 0. There is no argument, the case is closed.

To humor the rest of your post however, I'll say this. Melo could never play with a point guard like westbrook, he's not great at running an offense, and 90% of you knick fans were complaining about not having a real point guard to begin with, and that contributed to the problems with the knicks, and now you make a comment like that? Carmelo wouldn't excel in a transition based jump shooting offense, because that's what d'antoni was doing in new york, and wasn't everyone calling for his head? Even so, all that is basically your opinion and bullsh*t based off what if's and stanning. The numbers speak for themselves.

I agree with literally everything this n*gga said
Offensively, Melo can do any and everything on the court he's the most well rounded player in the L. Only time he ever ran a offense similar to Durant was during the olympics and yall all know Melo played better. He was the best player in the Olympics (though an argument can be made for LeBron as much as it k!lls me to say)

Melo has more in his arsenal but obviously Durant is the better scorer. It has nothing to do with what team they're playing for or their respective roles. Playing off the ball is a skill, you can't just stick Melo in Durant's place and think he'd produce the same efficiency (not to mention efficiency he's never ever produced before). Melo isn't even fit to do what Durant does off the ball. KD's jumper is way more consistent, he's a much better finisher around the rim, gets to the line more and is a better FT shooter.

Only way Melo would have an argument is if we're talking about the old Melo that used to bully n*ggas in the post.

Melo still bullies n*ggas in the post, and Melo was in Durant's OKC role for the most part in the Olympics (as well as Durant) and you tell me who played better

EDIT: STICKMAN DURANT A BETTER FINISHER THAN MELO AT THE RIM?!?!?

Melo wasn't in Durant's OKC role in the Olympics. You're joking right? He was just standing around the 3pt line and getting open looks off penetration and ball movement (as was Durant, Kobe). He wasn't constantly moving and running around screens. Not to mention those were NBA 2's. Melo is not a 3pt shooter like that.

Melo doesn't post as much as he used to and he's even said himself he's became more of a jump shooter now to preserve his body. His efficiency has taken a dive because of that.

And I'm not sure what Durant being a stick has to do with his ability to finish, he's long as sh*t.

2011-2012

AT THE RIM: Melo 59.9%
AT THE RIM: Durant 72.2% (better than Melo's career best)
