The answer 2 Melo/durant thats it. Funny how some clowns on here think Melo is top 15. Kobe in his prime for sure but not right now. The sad thing is Melo can outplay him or neutralize him and the coward still has wade and bosh.

jason terry and jj barea guarded lebron at times during that series lol

Melo can outplay him in a game, but not a series. Melo still hasn't proven that he's a winner.

Durant, maybe. But the 2012 finals proved that he's not ready yet.

Durant is definitely closer than Melo though.

Based on the love the OP has for melo, calling him a top 3 player. Melo plays well vs Lebron but I can't see him outplaying him in a series, Bron gets his teamates involved a lot more then Melo and thats the difference for me. Melo could out score him but I don't see him making more of an impact.

So you agree it means nothing in the playoffs because the team still matters. So whats the point in posting the head 2 head if you know its irrelevant?

He needs a historic effort just to outplay Bron.



omg look at lebrons 3 point percentage and ft percentage against melo! what horrible efficiency!

This just sounds like your incapable of measuring efficiency. Its not horrible, it may be horrible for him but that can happen when you compare a handful of games vs a careers worth. In the playoffs tho, we saw how different the matchup went.


efficiency doesnt always equal effectiveness or impact in a game
LOL no one ever said it did, but you see when you talk about stats (which the op did) you cant just ignore the glaring differences. Like KD was efficient in matching Brons PTS, Melo was not. Thats a pretty big sign of impact

What makes you think I missed the sarcasm?

And you showed stats that showed Melo can score at a slightly lower clip and slightly lower efficiency in the regular season at different points in their careers while ignoring the rest of their stats and playoff matchups and/or any actual analysis when defending each other.

How did you arrive to the conclusion that its actually pretty close? Oh yea by making baseless claims. Have fun now

OP overrating Melo again, using meaningless stats to back them up, and continuing his never ending jealousy and hate for the HEAT and LBJ. :rolleyes:

Seriously though, Melo should be top 5 on talent alone but the dude, aside from one WCF appearence, has done nothing IMO to put him in the top 5 slots. NOTHING.

What A cheater :). He is a top 3 Talent, yes I said it TOP 3. but he has never played up to that potential. This is the year for him, where he gets back into the top 10.

Melo can outscore Lebron in a 7 game series. Stop it. Bron will be the better passer/playmaker but dont tell me Melo can't outscore him in a series. I agree I have melo 12-15 but expect him to get back in the top 10 this year :pray:

LMFAO, thats the point. The 1 thing they were equal in, Bron was still better. So when you take into account the rest of the stats, how the **** do you surmise that they are "pretty close". Oh yea, by making baseless claims and ignoring facts. Buh bye

melo has a better head to head matchup against LeBron. I thought that was common fact. with Wade helping LeBron and Amare helping melo, yes LeBron would outplay melo.
However, even today's LeBron could get outplayed in. series by Melo assuming neither had much of a supporting cast.

people who say melo can't are thinking... the heat vs the Knicks. of course, LeBron will play better than Melo.

There is not one player that could outplay LeBron for an entire playoff series. He is the greatest player in the world and the most complete athlete we have seen in a while.

I dislike LeBron because I recognize he is the best in the world and he doesn't play for my team. I'm not a homer, and so I feel he deserves more credit than he is currently given.

If Lebron was still on the Cavs and the best player on his team besides him was Delonte West, I'd still say he'd beat the Knicks in 5.

Lebron is the King right now. He waited his turn, and he proved hes ready to take over the NBA in June. Right now, nobody is better than Lebron, playoffs or regular season. Obviously, the Heat wont just steamroll everybody, as OKC and SA will still be around, and the Lakers have renewed championship asperations. Still, IMO Heat should be favorites again next season.

yawn before lebron came to miami he use to ge t out playd. alot. lmao at yall acting like melo wouldnt outplay him if if he wasnt on miami. lebron aint nothing special.

he still can get outplayed till now, actually wouldn't playing with more talent actually make it more possible for him to get outplayed? lebron was dropping series averages like 38 8 8 in the playoffs in cleveland he will never do that again playing with wade and bosh.

The answer 2 Melo/durant thats it. Funny how some clowns on here think Melo is top 15. Kobe in his prime for sure but not right now. The sad thing is Melo can outplay him or neutralize him and the coward still has wade and bosh.

The real funny thing is, anyone that calls Melo top 15 cannot technically be wrong. If Melo is top 5 or top 10, he still falls into the top 15. But it's still a more legitimate claim to make that he is outside the top 10 rather than inside the top 5.

And calling LeBron a "coward" means you aren't worthy of responding to any further. Not that your blatant Melo homerism doesn't prove that already. But if you have any knowledge of basketball history, you would know that LeBron would never have had a chance at winning with the inferior squads he had to put up with in Cleveland.

If Lebron was still on the Cavs and the best player on his team besides him was Delonte West, I'd still say he'd beat the Knicks in 5.

Carmelo doesn't play defense. Sorry bro. Whoever said Carmelo is top 15 is crazy since teams that lose him get better and teams that get him get worse. Cough* Iverson Cough*.

dumbest thing i ever heard nuggets are a completely diffrent team they just got iggy for free chandler missed liek the whole year. Gallo was garbage in playoffs. Didnt melo take nuggets to west finals while avgin 30?

Melo is a great scorer he can outplay lebron in that category ONLY.

Melo can outplay him in a game, but not a series. Melo still hasn't proven that he's a winner.

Durant, maybe. But the 2012 finals proved that he's not ready yet.

Durant is definitely closer than Melo though.

WTF does that mean?!

won a national title... has never missed the playoffs...? But, he's a proven loser?

Is Deron Williams a proven loser? Is Chris Paul a proven loser?

Lebron is the King right now. He waited his turn, and he proved hes ready to take over the NBA in June. Right now, nobody is better than Lebron, playoffs or regular season. Obviously, the Heat wont just steamroll everybody, as OKC and SA will still be around, and the Lakers have renewed championship asperations. Still, IMO Heat should be favorites again next season.

They are, reigning champs and they have the best player in the game right now. Plus it doesnt matter who outplays Lebron it they still win the series

Depends on how the player is going to outplay Lebron?

Going at each other (ISO) each play, I think Melo might be close and so is Durant. But if we're talking about the other phases in basketball other than scoring, no one can outplay Lebron in a series right now.

I've seen Melo score on Lebron just as easily as Lebron scoring on Melo so they're even there. But I have only seen Melo take over an entire game (not just scoring) and I haven't seen him do it in an entire series against Lebron.

thats why you cant compare numbers. i think with durants numbers its easier for him to get quality shots with more one on one matchups. its not like you have to worry about just durant. against the cavs with lebron he was the team the only reason players were doing good is because they were wide the eff open because of double teams lol. put it like this no player from lebrons team at 23 would start on durants team now.

You make it seem like Durant played like crap, he scored just about 30 points every game, he did have TO problems and his rebounding and defense were pretty subpar. Then again another year, and Durant will prob get better he has the determination to do it and one thing can be said, every year OKC gets better and better and Durant is gonna try to close the gap.

Back on topic with LA's new help of Howard and Nash it's possible Kobe can at least having a shooting match against Lebron.

Paul Pierce has that kinda ability too, but I'm not sure if either can do it alone for 7 games since it's based on jump shooting and Lebron is based in the paint.

melo matched lebron point for point 27.8 ppg lost in 5 liek durant did without 3 starters whiel durant team is much better and was healthy.

How quick they forget Melo was 11-2 vs lebron before he hopped on wades nuts

Preach

Melo had to work too hard for his shots that series, too many injuries, etc. no help, Lebron had Wade/Bosh

I have to go on this premise until a healthy squad face them again and Im proven wrong

I don't feel like going through each page so... what does 11-2 mean? they've only played 15 games against each other in the reg season... it's 9 wins for melo to 6 wins for lebron...

Melo can definitely go toe to toe with lebron, even better than Durant. LBJ is a better defender but in a head to head match up, it doesn't help him much cause he cant guard melo regardless. The difference would be the passing. if melo starts using his teammates, he will take the next step.

Nobody can. Assuming Lebron doesn't lay an egg in a series (2011), he's by far the best player in the league. Durant can't outplay him, that is a joke. He got crushed this year, and even one on one, Durant still can't pass or play good defense.

its not all about points, also knicks lost a dleague level point gaurd and a rookie lets be honest same result maybe even worse if they played. also okc didn't lose in all blowouts like the knicks. That series was very competitive and it came down to okc not being experienced enough to finish the job.

and that 11-2 mark why does that matter so much? lebron leads kobe in h2h so? no one cares. its not like denver/cleveland ever matched off against each other in meaningful games.

Super.

Durant would be the only one with the talent to do it, but it wouldn't happen. LeBron is on another level right now

the answer is no one.

individually no one can out perform lebron in a 7 game series.

the man does it all. there is no better two way player in the game today. there is no other player who dominates the game on both ends of the court the way he does.

he was critisized for not being clutch. but through 48 mins he will give you the most production out of any other player on the court.

I also think its to his advantage that he doesnt look to take every game winning shot. keeps defences guessing if he will shoot or pass..

As far as attacking Lebron one on one, there's nobody that can go at him better than Melo can. Durant will also making him work to a certain extent using all those screens. Nobody can all around outplay him though

agree.

durant and melo are the best scorers in the league. they can score from just about anywhere on the court in just about anyway... but neither dominate the game the way lebron does as a two way player. lebron does it all on both ends of the court.

durant is still young and will most likely improve, but today lebron is the best player in the world and its not even close imo.

But Carmelo who wanted a trade because he couldn't win without a star isn't being a coward?

Him teaming up with a 24/9 Amare Stoudemire isn't being a coward?

LeBron played through his contract. Carmelo didn't.

The answer 2 Melo/durant thats it. Funny how some clowns on here think Melo is top 15. Kobe in his prime for sure but not right now. The sad thing is Melo can outplay him or neutralize him and the coward still has wade and bosh.

u need help to win but to join wade is another story. Bosh avg 24 n 10 to olets not forget that. Melo would have played out hist contract to after bosh n lecon left their teams with nothing all teams want to get something for their stars after that if u didnt notice

100 % False. Melo was either going to Knicks or the Nets. He wanted to sign an extension during the old CBA. At the very least, thats what he wanted and subsequently got his wish.

BTW i wouldn't say nothing since both Toronto and Cavs got two 1st round picks from Miami. They got something albeit close to meaningless.

Melo is a scorer with mediocre defense. Lebron is a scorer AND a top defense player. No way does Melo outplay Lebron right now.

And didn't the 2010-2011 Mavs outplay the Heat for the ring? Though that may be more of a team thing than a player vs. player thing.
