So surprised he jumped so much the last month or w/e. I remember in I think January he was at like 27.3 ppg or something. Dude has been killing it.

Melo 29.0 ppg 22.1 fga
Durant 28.9 ppg 18.0 fga
Kobe 27.4 ppg 20.9 fga

Durant will win again per the usual, and the only reason its remotely close is because he doesn't shotjack like melo/kobe. if he did he would be around 35 ppg every year

The only reason it's remotely close is refs gift Durant with free throws.

The only reason it's remotely close is because Durant sat 4th quaters of 4 straight games. OKC blow out teams a lot more often than Lakers/Knicks. Westbrook+Durant murder squads by halftime, sometimes Durant doesn't even need to score over 20 when Russ goes Goatbrook mode. But if he had Melo's shitty teammates, I am sure he could average 33PPG with Melo's usage rate.

Go check the game logs. Melo did the same thing for the first 2 months.


Durant has never carried a team by himself in his life. His teams were awful before Westbrook. Melo carried his team to the playoffs in his rookie year.

He was the lead guy with Andre Miller, Camby and Nene who are all above average/good at there position as well as Voshon Lenoard who averaged close to 15 and Earl Boykins who was one of the best back ups that season. While he was the main guy I wouldn't go as far as to say carried he had a very solid supporting cast. He was however the biggest reason for Denvers massive turn around.

Durant 57 eFG%=1.14 points per 2 point shot
Kobe 50.7 eFG%=1.014 points per 2 point shot
Kobe 84.3 FT%=.843 points per FTA
Melo 83.3 FT%=.833 points per FTA
Durant averages 9.2 FTA
Melo averages 22.1 FGA

Here are there averages if each player attempted 22.1 FGA and 9.3 FTA

Durant 33.574
Melo 30.5827
Kobe 30.2815

Yes, clearly. FT's are why Durant is so far ahead.

What the hell does him carrying his teams have anything to do with the scoring title? If anything, that's further disappointment. If he was the only real option on his teams, why couldn't he get a scoring title? So either he didn't have teammates that bad or he just sucked at scoring by himself.

The fact Durant has Westbrook is even more amazing how he won 3 straight scoring titles, Westbrook usually takes more shots than Durant and handles the ball majority of the time. Durant manages to do his scoring off-the ball or in the flow. Melo does his by pounding the ball, his usage rate is #1 in the league. Guess who is #2? Russel Westbrook.

Durant is #9, so he scores as much as Melo while touching the ball less and having #2 guy in usagerate on his team.
