How is Melo better?
Durant has a higher eFG% by far and is a much better FT shooter as well
Durant is the youngest scoring champ in league history, Melo has never won the scoring title
Durant averaged 30.1 ppg on 20.2 FGA last year
Melo averages 28.2 ppg on 21.8 FGA last year
Melo has never averaged 29+ ppg in a season..
There is no evidence of Melo being a better scorer, none.
Durant shot a higher pecentage from at the rim, inside the paint, mid range, jumpers, 3 pointers, and FT's.
