Carmelo: Worth the max? Like a ... LeBron??


 

Melo  being a superstar is debatable. But lets take a deeper look at why, he should not be considered a LeBron

 

PERs

LeBron-31

Wade -28

Bosh- 25

Kobe- 22

Melo- 22

Durant- 26

Chris Paul 24

Deron Williams 21

Derrick Rose- 21

Dwight Howard- 25

 

Despite Melo and Kobe having the same PER, you must consider how Kobe is beginning to reach the end of his prime, whereas Melo is still young and in his prime. This, along with Kobes clutch shooting, ability to score at will, guard anybody, and be a leader makes his game much higher that Carmelos.

As you can see, comparing Carmelo to a LeBron or Wade is outrageous. LeBrons PER is 9, yes 9, higher that Anthony’s and he has more aspects to his game than Anthony too.

So it can be said, Carmelo is a good player but by no means is on a level that Durant, LeBron, and Wade have established. He does not have the same kind of presence on the floor and does not have the same impact, either
