Default Re: 2013 Knicks Playoff Run thread

Durant is a better all around player but some of you talked about how he's much more efficient than Melo.

Let's look at their stats in a comparable situations. Both played against big,tough defensive teams (Memphis and Indiana). Neither had a 2nd option (Westbrook was out,J.R. sucked).

Kevin Durant - 28.8 points on 42% shooting (36% for three) in 45.6 minutes
Carmelo Anthony - 28.5 points on 43% shooting (35% for three) in 38.8 minutes

Durant is a better all around player but he isn't efficient as people say. Those numbers would be even worse if he wasn't getting special treatment from the refs.
