Are you seriously making that argument? Carmelo's at 45%, which is at the league average. For being "the best pure" scorer Carmelo shoots at the league average every year.
Tracy McGrady scored as much, played better defense and passed twice as well as Anthony ever has. Oh and Carmelo's playoff winning percentage is awful like McGrady.
No **** I'm seriously making it that's why I said it. For his career Melo is shooting around 46%, which is very good for someone who shoots a lot, and he gets to the line as well as almost anyone in the league.
And Carmelo plays defense people really need to stop pulling this out of their ass.
The Rockets are about to beat the Hornets who led most of the game. I think it's definitely safe to say that Chris Paul is not the same player he used to be. You can tell when he's out there. He's not as good of a defender as he once was and he can't shoot it either like he used to be able to.
That is ridiculous because apparently you think George Karl pulled that out of his ass as well. He allows as many points as he scores per 100 possessions.
There's a difference between defense during an average regular season game and when it really matters, which is why I don't really care about numbers like that. When he really sets his mind to guarding people in big games he does it.
