    Loooool, Durant for Melo and Fields anyone?

    Seriously, I'm happy with Melo and wouldn't trade him. A small forward is the last thing we need right now. Let's get CP3 or Dwight!

    Let's say Durant was in the same draft as Melo instead of Oden. Who would you draft as numero UNO?

    I really like KD's game, I wrote that he is better than Lebron as a scorer, Lebron is the better defensive player but KD is the better scorer.

    That's a good question.. I'd probably say Durant just because he brings it every night. Melo may be the more talented gifted scorer.. but he does take nights off and his motor isn't constant like Durants is. But right now I'm happy with having Melo on our team.

    I'd take Melo since he's a good ball handler and can take it to the basket a lot more than Durant. Durant is similar to Ray Allen.

    Durant is a two-time scoring champ though, can't argue that.

    how does Melo take nights off

    you dont average 25 ppg over a career of 8 years with 8 straight playoff appearances averaged 25 ppg as well if you take nights off

    Melo is one of the most consistent scorers in the league, and he averages 1.3 steals a game, and 6.5 rebounds a game over 8 years as well.


    takes nights off lol

    I dont know what games youre watching.

    and if you check both of their numbers
    melo and durant are equal

    just melos a few years older.

    both around 26 ppg


    both around 1.3 steals

    both around 6.5 rebounds

    both around 35 pct from three

    both around 46 pct from the field

    I would take melo based on the fact he can post up better; and hes a young 26 with veteran experience battling teams like the lakers and spurs every year in the playoffs.

    Durants statistics declined in every category this year

    ppg 30 to 27

    reb 7 to 6

    stl 1.4 to 1.1

    FG and FT and TP slightly down

    so this might be the best we see of durant for all we know.

    Look at some of his games in denver were he'd score 15pts in a game here or there. Or look at some games where he just looks totally disengaged. Don't be a such a homer. I love Melo (no homo) much as the next knick fan but if Durant and Melo were who I had to make a choice on right now. Its Durant by a small margin

    Also tell me why Melo can suddenly become a decent defender when he wants to but the majority of the time he's lackluster. Atleast Durant is consistently average on defense (Good help defender tho). Melo with all his talent should be leading the league in ppg every year. Yes, I agree his offensive game is much more complete than Durants (Durant might be a better 3 point shooter tho), yet Durant leads the league in scoring because he's consistently hungier IMO.

    Ok, even for a game with that competition is impressive. Just imagine him becoming a good ball handler. The Dirk vs. Durant games would be ridiculous.
