durant dominated just like melo but had some better numbers. melo won it all. hence i agree with glove, durant was the better player, melo had the better season.
I don't think Melo was anywhere near as dominant a player in one season of college basketball as Kevin Durant. Durant can do everything Melo can do and some things better. Plain and simple.

Carmelo's team won the championship largely because they were a better TEAM.

I'm talking individuals here. Durant led a very, very inexperienced group to the second round of the NCAA tournament and took no prisoners along the way. He should be penalized here because Carmelo had a better supporting cast.
