The NBA Battle Series: Kevin Durant Vs. Carmelo Anthony

July 5th, 2010 by Trevor Barber Leave a reply »
Here is my second article in this series. In my first article, I posted a battle between LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you do and place your opinions here. I know that this topic isn't as heavily argued about compared to LeBron and Kobe, but this is the battle for the second best small forward in the league.

Let's start with Carmelo:

2010 Stats

28.2 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 3.2 apg

2010 Playoff Stats

30.7 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 3.3 apg

Career Stats

24.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 3.1 apg

Carmelo has lived up to that No. 3 pick in the 2003 draft class that is known as one of the best in NBA history. Melo has proven that he is a leader for a good Denver team. He has lead his team deep into the playoffs in 2009, but was upset this year by the Utah Jazz in 6 games (probably to the absence of head coach George Karl). Melo is a three-time all-star (which I think should be more). Anyways, he's a great player and is a top-10 player. 

And now for Kevin Durant:
