Melo is so not lazy. He's not the intense or boastful player like AI or KG on the court, instead more Duncan like, Tmac like and its seen as if they aren't giving full effort. CP3 himself over the past 2 summers has worked out with Carmelo and said he's the hardest working player he's ever seen and how he's never seen someone take something new and incorporate it in a game like Melo, and he takes advice from Melo in that regard. And Carmelo is one of the most physical offensive players atleast in the league.

Because of the proven ability to consistently win with what has to be the most injured team in history year in and year out... gotta take Melo. But CP3 is a supertar, maybe the 2nd most talented pg in the league atleast 3rd best atm. But Melo's postup ability that helps the team so much and as much as a pf/c could... and his passing ability aswell, to go with being an amazing gifted scorer is why you take him. Offensively he can just help in so many ways.

I go the opposite way on that topic. I think Deron is a great player, but benefits from the awesome offensive talent they have there, the awesome coach, and his awesome offensive system that promotes great movement. But I think all things even Paul is certainly a step above him as a pg... he's the type of player that makes guys much better, as does Melo from his position.

If you're talking about guys in their late 20's: Boozer, Stoudemire, Randolph, Curry and Gasol come to mind.

after the pu$$yfication of the center spot ,now we are watching the pu$$yfication of the pf spot , probly after 2 or 3 seasons(with the end of TDīs era) we will not watch people playing on downlow...they will be all soft gay jump shooters.

anyway my pick is CP3 , and its not that close...

It is a close call, I'll give you that. But CP is the better scorer and defender. He's just flat out better.
