Lol. Thread backfired. KDwhistle takes way more freethrows, yet still falters behind Marshmelo.

One thing you obviously cant compare between them is style. Melo has some dope looking jumper and nice powerful moves, while this KD guy falls down after every dunk, and looks like skeleton.

In my opinion, the scoring title should go to the total points scored. I think it used to be like that before the merger, or even earlier.

Let's say Player A averaged 30 points per game in 70 games (2,100 total points).
Player B averaged 29.5 in 82 games (2,419 total points). Player B scored 319 more points, plus he played every single game.

Why punish the guy who actually played all 82 games?
