Caron has a much better all-around game but Melo is a BEAST in the post.

Melo for now...

Default Re: Carmelo Anthony vs Caron Butler Showdown!

the difference between Melo and Caron is that Melo is more talented and brings it every night.

other than that they've very similar. they both beat you with strength and positioning. they both score in similar ways although Melo is better in the post and Caron's a better shooter (although the difference in post skill > the difference in shooting ability). but the main thing is Melo comes every night. he doesn't have 6 or 8 point showings like Caron is known to have (although it helps that Caron has 2 other 20+ppg scorers on his team to take pressure off; it remains to be seen how he functions with pressure in the long term.)

Caron has better all around skills, esp at the defensive end.
Melo is a better pure shooter, and may score more points, but he is the designated scorer on that squad.
If you believe points are most important, then Melo is your man.

Another hint, he also made his first all-star appearance last season.

This thread is embarassing to Carmelo Anthony. He should be compared to elite players only, no offense to Caron.

while I don't know a ton about Melo, from the point of view of a guy who knows a lot about Caron, I really, really doubt this is accurate. I can't be sure though, I don't watch Melo much. the notion that Caron has "all around skills" just doesn't add up to me. if you want to overly generalize, Caron isn't good at anything other than scoring either.

Melo has skills besides scoring. namely a great handle for someone his size, and excellent passing ability (needs to use this more, he is a truely gifted passer. great timing). he is even a solid rebounder, part of the reason he only grabs 5 per game is he is always sprinting upcourt after a shot instead of chasing the rebound. but he has the ability.

Plus his shot is just beautiful, far better than LeBron's. He may have the best shot in the NBA for a non-guard.

Melo getting more praise during the FIBA games than Kobe really cut you deep didn't it?

There is this misconception that Caron Butler is a good defender... I dont know where it came from, because he is not a good defender at all, especially on the perimeter. He gets beat all day. I love Caron and the toughness he brings to my favorite team, but he is a terrible defender. He seriously has awful lateral quickness.
