Because everyone is a brainless LeBron groupie. I think if LeBron were to start raping 3 year old boys half this board would start doing it too. But yea, Carmelo for sure deserves more love then LeBron gets. Carmelo has never missed the playoffs as the leader of the Nuggets. He's a great scorer, and clutch as hell. LeBron makes his first game winner ever against the Bobcats. Yet 'Melo again takes over the 4th quarter and sticks it to the world champ Spurs and nobody talks about it. LeBron of course will get the free pass though. "ooohh, his supporting cast stinks." Big Z is an all-star, Gooden is ok, and in year 1 he even had Boozer and Ricky Davis. But of course the he didn't have help excuse flies on by. "ooohhh.. LeBron does play D because he gets some steals.' He gets steals here and there because he gambles so much. On the plays he doesn't steal the ball he's getting owned. "oohhh... LeBron hit a game winner!! Fuk u hat0rz!!!" Yea, it's about time. Where you been the past 2 3/4 years?

Carmelo > LeBron

The answer is simple , look at those stats, and the effect of those players in the League. In terms of getting into Play off, it is not that important to be there, but what you did out there is of great importance.

You cant consider a team with only one player , look at Minnesota, they have Kg and Ricky , but arent making play off this year, but this does not change the reality of Kg' being much better than Gasol , Rashedd whose teams are already clinched play off.

Try to take it in a broad perspective.

Because LeBron is overhyped by the media.

Carmelo is extremelly underrated by the media it's not even funny. LeBron hits a game winning shot after tons of attempts, ESPN and every sports caster is on his nuts while Carmelo does it night in and night out.

Because he is no where near as talented as LeBron. He came into the league with a far better offensive game than LeBron and even then could only barely outscore him and has been falling further behind ever since.

However anyone with half a brain would know that the season the Denver got Carmello, they had a huge turnover in players. That squad was nowhere close to the squad from the previous season.

Because LeBron is the better player while the Nuggets are the better team. I know it's easier to boil teams down to a single player, but it's neither logical nor true.

and i know yall will say he had a better cast around him but in his rookie year he brought bascally the same teamwith 18 wins the year before to the playoffs
Same team minus Marcus Camby, Kenyon Martin, Andre Miller and Earl Boykins. Basically, all their other best players other than Nene, who was a raw rookie that season.

Their starting lineup in their 17 win season was Nene, Juwon Howard, Ryan Bowen, Vincent Yarbrough and Junior Harrington.

So, no, he didn't "take basically the same team that won 18 games the year before to the playoffs." He was part of a much, much more talented team all around.

And yes, he's had a better cast than James.

This season I would say Carmelo has taken strides in his offensive efficiency and shot selection. He's very good offensively. Lebron still has the edge in that category with his passing and ball handling abilities. Lebron is also a better rebounder, better in the lanes, blocking shots, shooting, etc. Just a better all around player.

But I was anti-Melo for years and he plays a much better floor game now. He should make the all-star team next season.

in 2002-2003 the nuggets consisted of Howard, Harvey, Blount, White, Whitney, Posey, Hilario, Bowen, Skita, Yarbrough, Satterfield and Crotty.

2003-2004 nuggets have Anthony of course, Hilario, Camby, Miller, Barry, Boykins, Lenard, White, Doleac, Andersen, Bowen and Ellison.

Maybe you should do a little research before you make such stupid statements.

That's like my cape, James said. If you knock a superhero's cape off they get very angry.
Another reason to dislike LeBron. He's got a super huge ego. Superhero? Superhero's save the day all the time. Not once out of 220+ times against the Bobcats. You are no 'superhero', and you are not a 'chosen one' either. You're an overhyped basketball player is what you are.

dONT you think he was mature enough up to now ? he played his game , made that stats, never boast about that. with this seaon , he is acting like super star, as he did in All Star game, ( commenting on being Mvp ) It is high time he acted like this, he is right to say it even if this is the first time to have GW shot. But if you take a look at it last periods you will see how he played, for a match to win you need not make that last shot at the end.

Take it easy right , he is the next 10 years of NBA. Let him say so ..

I love Carmelo. I was thinking about making a Melo appreciation thread, but I look at this thread and it just turns into a hate fest. BTW ESPN was bashing LeBron last night and praising Melo so take it as you will. LeBron has been getting a steady bashing from the media the last couple of months. Melo has gotten nothing but love. Some will continue to not have cognition of these events and ignore them. For all you fans mad that your favorite player is threatened by the love and "hype" LeBron gets suck a fat ****.

The Cavs are better than the Nuggets right now and have been better for the brunt of the season. So even if you are just talking team success, this season Lebron's team has been better.

If you were to turn the discussion to the two players, the only thing Melo does better than Lebron is hit last second shots--but he does that better than Kobe, but I wouldn't say he's better than Kobe.

What does Melo actually do on the basketball court better than Lebron? Lebron has better handles. He shoots the ball better from outside. He finishes in the paint better. He has much better court vision. He's the better defender both as a help defender, and as a man to man defender. The only thing Melo has on Lebron is that he has a quicker first step, and a fatter ***. But he has those same advantages on every other player in the league, and it doesn't mean he's better than Kobe or Elton or Steve Nash or Dirk.

And it's going to suck for you arrogant haters if Lebron gets out of the first round this year, and Melo is still stuck in it.

The last ten games Carmelo Anthony has been averaging 29 points on 60% shooting and 85% FT shooting. .... WOW.
