    This post can't be understated.

    Because to extremely disturbing degrees, this fan base severely overrated many of our "stars" and "saviors".

    For years now...and even at this point in time, there are people who would say Melo is a superior player to Lebron...or that Amare is leaps and bounds better and superior to Bosh, etc etc etc.

    3 years from now, Carmelo Anthony is going to end up like Metta World peace.

    All these guys went to a different system and never looked comfortable. I respect you as a poster but sometimes you like to act all dumb like you don't understand something just to further your point. That "either you play good or you don't" comment is so weak. Act like you have some basketball sense man.
    System's do affect players, but your examples are Raymond Felton, Turkoglu, and Elton Brand. None of those guys are considered stars at this point. Do you think Lebron would be losing and playing terribly on any team?

    Melo is a max guy and so he's expected to play great and lead the team to wins. The most disturbing part of his play is that he doesn't seem to play hard on both ends of the floor. If he played D like he did against Lebron we would be in a lot more games. Stars like Kobe and Lebron even when not scoring consistently make big plays and that's what Melo isn't doing.

    Melo overall <- Lebron
    Melo scorer -> Lebron
    Amare this year <- Bosh
    Amare last year -> Bosh

    LOL, look at their career scoring numbers, since the 2008-2009 season Carmelo's outscored by LeBron especially if we're looking at their FG%.

    As a purely offensive player Carmelo is better than Lebron, or was, prior to this season. Melo could post, midrange, shoot the 3, before Lebron started becoming really consistent with those parts of his game.

    This season, Lebron is just a monster.

    Ok this is a definition difference. I know there are only so many true "superstars" in the league, so I guess I am talking about "all-stars." In other words, guys that can make all-conference in any given season. For example, Tyson Chandler is not a superstar, but is can be all-conference defense in any given season.

    Melo isn't even the best player on the Knicks, that would be Tyson Chandler. Most Knick fans would take Chandler over Melo every day.

    Before you talk about Melo being a top 5-10 player, you have to try to figure out an argument on how Melo > Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce had Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to aide him to that championship.
    If Melo was in his place he would have won that trophy too and then again the second when the Celtics couldnt.

    KOBE SAID IT HIMSELF, YOU CANNOT GUARD CARMELO ANTHONY.

    I didn't because I know you wouldn't have an argument that would include logic.

    Westbrook is a dynamic combo guard who can play on both ends of the floor, a scoring machine and menace on defense. His jumpshot is improving also.

    Russell is a 25/5/5 player with very good defense. Melo is a 22/6/3 player with lazy defense.

    Westbrook wins.
