Melo attempted 310 field goals in his 12 games before the Pacers eliminated the Knicks.
LeBron, who is in second place and 12 shots back will likely pass Melo in Game 2 of the Finals. For now, Melo has the lead despite playing five fewer playoff games than LeBron and scoring 91 fewer points.
I love Westbrook, but I understand why people don't.
I like Westbrook too. Hurts to say, since he plays for OKC...but I love the edge he plays with.

I love ya Baller but the greatest defender of all time has spoken.
"If LeBron was playing in the late '80s or early '90s," Rodman said, "he'd be just an average player."
"If Michael played today ... really? If he played the game today at 28 years old, he would average 40 points a game, probably more."
"I'm just sick and tired of people always comparing him and Michael Jordan. It's a whole different era, man."
Pressed by Patrick about an "average" LeBron, Rodman said: "Look at those teams [when Rodman played]. Look at the Cleveland Cavaliers. Look at Golden State when they had Chris Webber and all of those guys. If those teams then could play now, they would kick anybody's ass today. Are you kidding me?"
"If I was 28 years old guarding LeBron ... are you kidding me?" Rodman said. "If he scored on me, I would be like, OK, thanks. Guess what, though? Sooner or later, somebody's gotta win, somebody's gotta lose, and most of the time I don't lose."
i know little about basketball and nothing about basketball 20 years ago, but that is just a fundamentally flawed argument.
1) there is no way of knowing lebron james wouldn't be as good back then. absolutely no way. if lebron james was playing 20 years ago he would've been brought up playing the way the game is played back then. he'd be used to the contact and would be on the same level playing field as everyone else. so why can those guys do it and lebron apparently cant? thats not something you can project. its how someone is taught to play the game and the experience they gain from playing a certain way.
2) suddenly the talent level drops off as soon as the game changes? that is so so so stupid and it makes zero sense. as long as nothing drastic happens to participation numbers, the talent level is generally going to stay about the same. the more people you have playing basketball, the more talented players there will be. did participation numbers massively drop off as soon the rules changed? that would be the only explanation for everyone after a certain point sucking at basketball.
comparing careers is fine...but saying that the most talented player in nba for the last however many years, would be anything other than the same 20 years ago, is beyond ridiculous.

Brody is just mad cause his coach is gonna be Mo Cheeks. Parker is ridiculously clutch, but i'd still take Curry over him. And Russ is a god damn boss, his two way game is insane. Until Rose can get on the court and show me he won't play scared, i can't put him on my list.
