I'm curious how people view Melo in comparison to Vince Carter when he was in his prime. Anthony has a size advantage over Carter, but both guys are known for their shooting and ability to explode toward the rim. Watching VC during his time with the Nets, I gained an appreciation for his astute passing as well. I have not watched many Nuggets games and don't know where Melo ranks in that area.
So for the main skills, such as explosiveness, speed, shooting, defense, decision-making, passing, and leadership, how do the two compare?
VC had his fair share of fans, but it seems that Anthony is considered a level above him when it comes to "stardom". Is this easily explainable?
