This comparison sort of came up in the Kings forum so I thought I'd see what other people think. Who is better Kevin Martin or Brandon Roy?

Here are their statistics from last season.

PPG: Martin 23.7, Roy 19.1
RPG: Martin 4.5, Roy 4.7
APG: Martin 2.1, Roy 5.8
SPG: Martin 1, Roy 1.1
BPG: Martin .1, Roy .2
FG%: Martin 46%, Roy 44%
3FG%: Martin 40%, Roy 34%
FT%: Martin 87%, Roy 75%
MPG: Martin 36.3, Roy 37.7
TOPG: Martin 2.15, Roy 1.84

In their head to head matchups last season Roy averaged 14 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6 assists to Martin's 17 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2 assists.

Martin will be entering his 5th year next year and Roy will be entering his 3rd. Martin is 25 and Roy is 24. Who is the better player?

Very close, but I'll take Roy. He led his team is 41 or 42 wins this year without much help. K-Mart has more potential though IMO, and is a better scorer so it really depends what your team needs.

lol kiddin but he doesnt get much attention,

I agree. Which is stupid when you consider he's the 2nd or 3rd best shooting guard in the West. :pity:

I agree Martin doesn't get much attention when I think he should be. But I'd take Roy.

Look at the assist advantage. Roy means so much more to his team than K-Mart does to his it isn't even funny. K-Mart is the better scorer (but the different isn't that large), but he's a one dimensional player, and he does not compare to a guy who has no weaknesses.
