Your words. Durant has shot worse than Melo despite refs calling a foul if someone breathes on him. I guess he sucks and OKC should trade him for Monta Ellis.

Durant does more than score.

Stop being dense man, you know damn well durant did not average 41% during this years playoff run.

He finished at 51% and 41% from three....8 rebounds and 5 assists.

Come on man,we all know Houston is trash defensively. When he faced a defensive team in Memphis his shooting percentage plummeted and was even worse than Melo's against the Pacers.
Pacers and Grizzlies are pretty comparable defensively,I would even say Hibbert is a better shot blocker than Gasol and Paul George is a better defender than Prince (who's getting old).
He shot so poorly despite refs protecting him like he's some kind of endangered species.

Durant is a better player than Melo. But you attacked Melo for shooting poorly,it would be unfair to give Durant a pass for that.
And being tired is not a valid excuse. It's the playoffs. Everyone is tired the same. Melo even played injured while Durant was healthy as it gets.

Houston tore the Knicks a new one, I wouldn't even talk about defense.

Durant tired out, dude finished his playoff run 51% and 41% from three, melo was not close.

Are you seriously saying a player who lead their team in scoring rebounding assists steals should not be tired compared to a player who only scores and wasn't even good at that?

And hell no hibbert is not as good as gasol in any facet.

Paul george is a good defender by why not compare him to the Grizzlies defenders in Tony allen and Conley?

The Grizzlies are better than the pacers by a mile.

Melo does nothing better than Durant, at this point it should be a close case.

Durant had TWO BAD GAMES,he was still lighting them up in the previous three.

Conley didn't defend Durant. Tony Allen did it for stretches but it was Prince who guarded him the most. And yes,Roy Hibbert is a better shot blocker than Marc Gasol. Better rim protector for sure.
Gasol is obviously a better player but we're talking about defense here.
Houston's defense is trash,they did kill us in the regular season but that was because of their offense,not because they played great defense.

Sorry,you criticized Melo for poor shooting,it's time for you to do the same for Durant. NO EXCUSES,ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE HEALTHY AND PROTECTED BY THE REFS. MELO IS NEITHER.

Did melo have 3 games shooting above 47% while leading his team in three other areas?

yes or No.

here is the bottom line....

Durant shot 51% and 41% for the entire playoffs and his two bad performance did not affect his TOTAL.

Melo was 40% for the entire playoffs....29% from three

and did nothing else.

Melo shot better against the Pacers than Durant did against the Grizzlies.
Durant got help from the refs,Melo didn't.
Durant was healthy,Melo didn't.

That's all.
@ you using Houston who were probably the worst defensive team in the playoffs to boost his shooting percentage. That's pathetic.

So now health is an excuse why all Melo could do is shoot 39% and 29% from three?

why not lead the team in assist since he had the ball for 40% of the teams plays?

All I wanted from you is to not defend Durant's poor shooting. That's all. I stated that Durant is a better player. But attacking Melo for poor shooting and defending Durant for doing the same despite being healthy and getting KD-Whistle treatment from the refs is double standard.

Durant is better,we all know that. But stop with the double standard. If you're going to attack Melo for poor shooting then you need to attack Durant too. No excuses.

Here is what you dont get.

Everyone knows Durant is an efficient shooter.....Melo has never been.

Durant had to pick up Hardens scoring and playmaking the entire season, and had to play most of the playoffs without Westbrook as well.

The guy without using scoring 9 rebounds 6 assists 1 steal 1 block.

Take away Melo's scoring, what else did he do on the court?

6 rebounds 1 assist 1 steal and no blocks at all.

That's why Durant gets a pass, he did alot more on the court, and previoucsly two the last 2 games he was scoring at an elite clip as well.

You'd think Melo was an absolute bum the way Knickscity talks about him lol Nevermind that he had 39 and 7 on over 50% shooting in an elimination game. Lemme guess...we're going to blame him for his 2 turnovers in the 4th quarter now .

End of the day, we don't have any chance at acquiring Durant. So get over it. If your shortcoming is not being better than the 2nd best player in the NBA, so be it. But you're being a hypocrite, once again, by bringing up injuries in a defense AGAINST Melo. Correct me if I'm wrong but, were we not on our 4th PF?

Go back and read the thread, I'm not comparing Melo to Durant....Clutch is.

I plainly stated injuries aren't an excuse, Clutch is the one mentioning that.

All i stated is Durant does more on the court besides scoring, and he's better than melo at that as well.

i could care less about a 39 point effort in an elimination game on the road.

Perhaps he didn't go 10-28 at home in game 1, we wouldn't need a road vitory at alll, that's what home court is for.

You can take more shots than your entire starting lineup and expect to win.

BTW the fourth quarter line.....

2-7, offensive foul, three turnovers....and the reverse poster.....

Knickscity...remind me of Durant's last 2 4th quarter stats.


And since when is it the worst thing in the world to get blocked by a 7'2" center? It was a nice block. Melo is 6'8" and never was super athletic. Hibbert is 7'2" and a pretty good shot blocker. He made a nice play.'

When you can tell me who was knocking down shots besides Melo in the 1st half...then maybe you can use that argument. The guy had zero help for most of the game. Cope and Shump were the only other guys who showed up.

This post season has brought out the worst in you Knickscity. Sorry to say it...but you're stories aren't consistent. You're sounding ridiculous dude. You're ripping a guy who gets 39 and 7 on the road in one thread but making excuses for a guy who got 2 points and 6 rebounds in another thread. You're a cool dude who knows a lot about sports but


STOP BEING HYPOCRITICAL!!!

Here is the question, I asked Clutch and he ignored it......

What does Melo do besides score?

I never said Durant didn't have 2 bad games...he did, but he does more on the court, thats why he doesn't get the blame melo does.

When melo gets 9 rebounds 6 assists a steal and a block, then he will get a pass for bad shooting as well.
