He is much more of a Kobe than a Lebron, which can work. They need the right system and personnel. I think Phil can help a lot here, but they likely can’t do it this year or next, so waiting until 2015 (like many other teams are doing) is a huge dice roll.

]]>Melo is taking 22 shots a game to score 28.1 points a game. He is 2nd in the league in scoring.

Durant is taking 20.5 shots a game to score 31.7 points a game. Uh, that’s MORE points on fewer shots. Durant is leading the league in scoring.

The 3rd leading scorer in the league is LBJ. LBJ is taking 17.5 shots a game to score 27.1 points a game.

So, there are the top 3 scorers in the game based on points per game. ONE of them (Melo) is no where near the top in the game at scoring efficiently.

It would be like a running back in the NFL who gets a 100 yards each game rushing but had to rush the ball like 33 times each game to do it. That is NOTHING special. Give me the back who gets a 100 yards on 20 carries a game.

Melo is your 33 rush attempts per game to get a 100 yards back… except he plays in the NBA.

He is a VOLUME scorer. Just like a back in the NFL can get to 100 yards in a game if you give him the ball enough…

BIG whoop, Melo averages 28 points a game.

Being a GREAT scorer means scoring efficiently, not just simply compiling points by taking a lot of shots.
