    Exactly.. The way he's being guarded by Miami reminds me so much of how they defended Melo in the 1st round... and Melo did better job scoring against the heat's defense (especially game 4)

    I f*cking hate the heat, for real.Durant has the same problems as melo, he needs to move without the ball, he's making it easy to guard him right now.

    WTF, Melo doesnt show up for the season, goes H.A.M. when it doesnt mean ****.
    Durant goes H.A.M. all season and chokes harder than Lebron in the Finals???
    imagine if we had the good side of a combination of the two?

    Is this really a question?...

    Melo's selling point is his offense. Durant is the defending 3-time scoring champ.

    Melo is horrid in the playoffs, Durant is in the Finals at age 23.

    Melo is a great player, Durant is just better.

    Without Bias

    1st off I wanna say their comparions

    Durant- Dirk Nowitski meets Ray Allen
    Carmelo- James Worthy meets Larry Bird

    now

    Scoring- Melo is definitely a better scorer than Durant but Durant's offense is designed to get him more open looks than Melo. Durant also gets "superstar" calls while Melo doesn't get those same calls- Tie

    Rebounding- Melo is definitely a better rebounder, Durant doesn't crash the boards like a guy his size should. Melo is possibly the best offensive rebounder in the game- Carmelo

    Passing- While Durant is more passive than Melo the fact of the matter is Melo is a better and more skilled passer. While Melo doesn't look to pass up a good shot of his own for a great shot of his teammates, where talking who's better- Carmelo

    Defense- Both aren't great defenders but when motivated I say Melo is superior due to being able to defend 3's, 4's and 5's. But Durant is more into defense than Melo- Durant

    Decision-Making/Discipline- Melo's decision making is sometimes sketchy, while Durant understands when to say NO- Durant

    Clutch- Carmelo

    Team Work- The fact that Durant is more team oriented gives him the nod. But Melo has finally got that level thanks to Woodson. But we have to see more consistency- Durant

    Carmelo- 3
    Durant- 3
    Tie- 1

    At the end of the day when you put in everything the biggest thing that separates them is Durant understanding how to be a Champion at the age of 23 while Carmelo is just getting there. I always said if Carmelo knew how to be a Champion he'd be one and now is his time. Durant has about 10 years left of going off and Carmelo has about 5. So we have to say Durant is the better basketball but not more skilled than Carmelo

    KD- better basketball player
    CA- more skilled basketball player

    big difference

    This can't be a serious question.

    Durant is hands down better.

    Funny how Lebron haters use his lack of a title against him, but Melo has made it out of the 1st round ONCE in his career.

    Melo's somewhere around top 15. Off the top of my head - Lebron, Durant, Paul, Kobe, Howard, Wade, Rose, Westbrook, D-Will, Love, Blake, Aldridge, Bynum, Parker, Kyrie.

    Some people might dispute Kyrie but he had a ridiculous age 20 season and I would definitely take him over Melo going forward.

    lol what a joke of a thread.

    Durant at age 23 has already much more acomplishments than Melo will ever have.

    Scoring titles

    Melo - 0 (great number for someone labeled as best scorer in the league LMFAO)

    Durant - 3 (and many more to come)

    All-NBA First Teams

    Melo - 0

    Durant - 3 (and many more to come)


    KD is also better rebounder, better passer and better defender and most of all - he's much better TEAMMATE.

    Yeah your right, he's been way to passive, but the same people in here, who are saying this is a dumb question, i bet MELO would never be this passive.I still think Durant is a little better, i love MELO's aggressive attitude more, Durant is way to shy for me.

    I can't believe u said Durant>lebron when he's scared to play whenever lebron is guarding him. I hate the heat with a passion and I was bitching about the refs on game 3 along with everyone else bc the calls were terrible but in Game 4 the refs were pretty fair, lebron went off as he's been doing the whole series, and it was Westbrook who kept it close, not Durant.

    Durant has already achieved a whole lot more than Melo in this league. Both as an individual and a team member.
