Default I keep hearing that Melo is the best scorer/mid range shooter in the league but..

then why is dude only shooting .359 from the field in 3 games vs Boston?

I though that mid range jumper was so unstoppable that he could get buckets regardless

Take away any superstars next two best teammates and let him play vs the Boston Celtics defense and that is what you will get.. You may get worse..

He's not the best scorer/mid range shooter in the league. Kobe's a better mid range shooter and durant is the best scorer in the league IMO.

. So because he's struggling a bit he's no longer one of the best? did you not watch game 2? that's what he's capable of. Unfortunately he's playing one of the better defensive teams and his 2 best teammates are injured. Think before you make generalized comments

Durant and Kobe are still better scorers.

he was never the best. The myth of him being the best scorer/best mid ranger shooter is just that, a MYTH

Durant is a better shooter but IMO Melo is the better scorer. Meaning he has more ways to score.

Durant can post, shoot 3's, has a midrange and slashing game; all on higher %'s. What can't he do that Melo supposedly does?

Look Durant is my favorite player but I'm not going to pretend his post game is better than Melos. Can you really say Durant has post moves like Melo?

Durant doesn't have a good post game.

Probably not, but I can say he has a more effective midrange and 3PT game.
