Yeah, we'll need him in February.

Hopefully he gets a great extended holiday vacation.

I hope he sustains it. Before that A.I trade\suspension he was averaging like 30+ on 50% from the field if I remember correctly.

It'll be a shame if he retires without atleast one scoring title.

Melo is capable of winning it. Guy is a beast offensively, which everyone already knew. It was always his defense that was in question. Looks like he has stepped it up this year.

Hopefully, it equates to wins.... still don't think they can get past the Heat.. but anything is possible.

The Melo for MVP hype will fade away. The guy isn't a winner.

Melo - 4th

Could be a difference between reporting sources.

I'm looking at Basketball-Reference.com's 2012-13 Leaders:

Player Efficiency Rating

1. Kyle Lowry - TOR - 31.7
2. LeBron James - MIA - 31.3
3. Jeff Teague - ATL - 30.1
4. Tim Duncan - SAS - 28.9
5. Chris Paul - LAC- 28.0
6. Chris Bosh - MIA - 27.7
7. Kobe Bryant - LAL - 26.9
8. Dwyane Wade - MIA - 26.0
9. Jamal Crawford - LAC - 25.6
10. Carmelo Anthony - NYK - 25.2

In any case, Melo is among the league leaders and that's what the thread's about.

Right now Durant is the consensus winner...

To get a shot at the MVP, he needs: NYK to be a top 3 seed in the east while he is the best player in the team.

To Lock it, he needs to lead the league in scoring, while putting all around similar numbers to KD and the Knicks get the 1 seed in the east... if he get those you can call him MVP.

Default Re: Melo is the league's leading scorer

I think Melo has a better shot at MVP than he does scoring title.

I think when Amare returns, Melo will look to score less and be more of a spacer on more possessions that will look to score off of ball rotations from the perimeter. I think he'll finish the season around 24-25ppg. Nothing over 26, and under 26 usually doesn't mean scoring title.

The only way I see him possibly winning the scoring title is if he becomes extremely efficient from 3pt range.
