Watching the Finals matchup between OKC and MIA really got me thinking.. What if Melo was in the position of Durant? Would they still be in the Finals if Melo lead that team? And of course, where would we be if Durant represented the Orange & Blue of New York.

To me, their offensive playstyles are very similar. A high dose of mid range shots, decent post up, good passing ability. The difference between them, IMO, is their demeanor and discipline on the court. KD is more controlled and careful with his shot selection. While Melo tends to freestyle and do whatever he feels like doing.

Work ethic? Durant.
Defense? Even
Rebounding? Melo

So tell me what you think guys? Who's the better player? Discuss.
