Yeah, this has historically always been Melo's problem. He just won't shoot enough.

Your sad life consists of constantly putting effort into hating on a team you don't care about or like.

Plus your probably a republican, I can indeed see why your mad.

The point is he's not going for the scoring title. He's doing enough to help his team.

Case in point should be the 2008-9 season. He was still by in large the best scorer on that team without a guy that you'd consider a 2nd option for a contender. He scored 22 pts for the West's 2nd seed. That postseason though, he was one of the top scorers in the playoffs.

THIS is the first year Melo's had a great compliment of talent around him that will actually enhance his game. I said it before this season, I've explained it a million times over. And this year he's going to beast. Watch it.

Hell during the Olympic training camp Durant called Melo the best offensive player. He's said it before years ago. There's countless other people professional opinions from other players that have said the same. It should be obvious on camera to you too. Stats be damned

Kevin Durant and (especially) LeBron are much less selfish than Melo, yet they've both won scoring titles, led the playoffs in PPG, and averaged over 30 PPG in a season, all things Melo has not and probably never will do. Melo can't even outscore guys who don't even try to score as much as him, how the **** is he the best scorer?

I don't think he's selfish. I think sometimes he lacks poise/wherewithal and doesn't recognize that he needs to pass. He also seems to get too amped at times, hence those "adrenaline threes" that are wastes of possessions.

Durant will almost always have a better scoring output but the thing about Durant is if you start getting physical with him he gets prevented from impacting the game.

Lebron sometimes gives up and settles for jumpers or passes when it's clear he can impact the game with his scoring and in and around the paint more.

Melo is easily the most versatile scorer in the league , understands exactly how to impact games with his scoring.

Don't get me wrong, he's definitely a gifted scorer, but I hear people put him on the same level as Kobe and Durant as a scorer, and I don't think he really belongs in that conversation.

Then you havent watched too many Melo games.

Like any logical person you accomplish a task in the least complicated/strenuous manner that is effective; when that stops working you switch it up, and that continues as the defense adjusts.

That is why Melo generally starts with his mid range game (easiest) and then works into a post up bully ball style as the game progresses

Melo is so overrated right now. The guy is averaging 27.3 ppg on a mediocre 44% fg on 21 spg.....also he has only 1.5 apg. He is shooting 34.8% from downtown. His D as usual is not good.

He is playing better than usual right now, yes, but not that much better.

It's the NY overrated hype machine going full force again.

To be fair, he doesn't have to do that much facilitating with Kidd and Felton on the floor.

Though, yes, I would like him cut down on wasting some possessions, like jacking random 3's and going into too much ISO's.

His shooting % should get higher as the year goes by and he might just win his first scoring title.
