Carmelo went off in that 3rd quarter. In 12 minutes, he scored more than most of the guys scored in the game.
Yeah, Lebron is better at getting others involved and passing to those guys; but he's a point guard...that's his job. Melo is a sf and he is there to score. The Nuggets knew what they were getting when they drafted him, they were getting a scorer and a rebounded. If they want anything else from him, then they will have to be patient ad wait for those skills of his to develop.
Comparing the 2 as of right now:
Lebron: 19.8 ppg, .8 blocks, 1.5 steals, 3.9 turnovers, 6 assists, 5.8 rebounds, and 40.3 minutes
Melo: 19 ppg, .8 blocks, 1.2 steals, 2.8 turnovers, 2.8 assists, 6.5 rebounds, and 35.8 minutes
