Agreed. Durant got the offensive swag down to a science.

depends on how you look at it. durant is the best scorer when catching the ball and shooting or finishing in traffic. he's also lethal when he gets a small window to shoot long-range. melo is the best scorer with the ball in his hands and facing up in the post...just can score in many different ways.

Durant can score the most points in the most efficient way. Carmelo can score more ways, but he doesn't score as much or as efficiently.

Not much more. Melo and Durant shoot basically the same percentage.

Melo has more moves, better combination of inside and out, better attacking the basket. Durant is real nice, but he needs to get some bulk so he can post up a little more. Use that high release and long frame.

Durant put up 30 ppg on 61TS% last year and 28 ppg on 58 TS% this year..

Melo has never broken 55 TS%. The efficiency isn't even close

Durant is the most dominant scorer in the NBA and Anthony and Nowitzki are the most versatile.

If you score the most you are the best scorer period. Before the Playoffs started, everybody was saying he would get shutdown by the Nuggz defenders, after he shat all over the nuggz, it was TA,Battier and Young. All of them are history now while Durant has led his team to WCF averaging 30PPG.

Durant is an effective scorer, but it's strange because he doesn't have the most polished offensive game.

he who scores the most points in the league, is also the best scorer in the league.

It really is that simple, IMO

Nope........

Lebron Is The Correct Answer......... I Suggest You Watch Some Games Of Lebron Not Having To Share The Ball With Wade & Bosh.........

but durant is close i would say still TODAY........ 2nd or 3rd fighting that spot today with kobe-wade

I don't think its without question...

The best scorer to me is the guy who can get any shot, against any defense. And thats Melo. Get physical with Melo and he doesn't get phased, deny Melo and he doesn't get jumpy, play off Melo and he will hit daggers on you

You can't put a guard on melo, he will eat him alive. You cant put a big on melo, he would eat him alive. There are only a handful of guys you can put on Melo who will be able to stay with him 1-1 inside and outside.

Durant is super good scorer, but if his jumper isn't falling you are in good shape, if you have a guy good at navigating screens, you are in good shape.

Melo is undeterred by off-shooting nights, thats a postive and a negative but thats the mentaility of a scorer

ask lebron not to waste possessions on passing either.... if lebron averaged only 2 apg like durant that means he shoots much more.... and that means like around 40 ppg....

ok so Durant might be the best scorer in the league but he's nothing more. He doesn't have any personality, no magic... he's good, no doubt, but I wouldn't watch a game just because of him.
