    So Reggie Miller just talked about the best scorers in the league and didn't mention LeBron. Now, forget my feelings towards lebron, but it has always been a pet peeve of mine that people somehow leave him off of the list of best scorers and yet always mention Carmelo. Exactly how many seasons has Carmelo actually averaged more points than LeBron? 2. 2 out of 8. LBJ has averaged nearly 3 more pts a game for his career while shooting exactly 2% higher from the field. Always drove me nuts when the analysts would talk about Carmelo being the best scorer in the league when LBJ was here, and it still drives me nuts.

    I don't know anything about stats or whatnot, but Carmello is a more talented scorer in that he can score in more ways and from more places on the court. He's probably also harder to shut down.

    Carmello can have all of the weapons in the world, and LeBron may only have a couple, but at the end of the game LeBron has more points.

    We've also seen firsthand that good defenses can really shut him down, and his outside game is still unreliable until proven otherwise. Midrange jumpers aren't the most efficient shots but you can always get them off.

    Players struggle against good defenses. All players do it is not just LeBron, otherwise good D's wouldn't be good D's. Player A scores more points on higher FG%, but player B is a better scorer? That is what this argument comes down to.

    Hey man, I'm not trying to argue in favor of Melo being a better scorer than LeBron, just giving reasons why some people might feel that way.

    Ok, just kinda stunned as to how a player can be a better scorer when they don't score as many points. It's almost like saying that Durant is a better passer than LeBron.

    I'm gonna be honest, I didn't think mike brown would make that much of a difference on defense, but it's starting to show. even Kobe isn't taking plays off on his side of the defense when the ball's not there.

    Craig Sager questions Bynum's maturity, calls him selfish, speaks of how he parks in handicap parking spaces, racks up traffic violations among other quirks.. even called him a cancer.

    Reggie Miller: "That's nice and all....."

    Well yea, one of those things being fg %. So when a guy scores more and does so more effeciently, not sure how he isn't a better scorer.

    I mean Derrick Coleman could score in more ways than almost anyone in the league, but he sure as hell wasn't the best scorer because of it.

    Yea I was sleeping on the Blazers. Wes Matthews looks like he's going to be a legit player for his entire career. However, is the Nick Batum craze finally over? I see he isn't starting for Portland and still hasn't seemed to have made any real strides into becoming the next Scottie Pippen.
