Dwight has an actual problem with the late fourth quarter situations because of his free throw shooting.
But the stats doesn't mean anything when you talking about SCORING ABILITY. Its obvious Carmelo is betterDo you care about how many pretty ways Carmelo can score more than how often he does it in the game (and gets points for his team)?
Post moves in the paint: Carmelo is better
3 point shot: Carmelo is better
17 ft shot: Carmelo is better
One on one: Carmelo is better
Is Big Al a better scorer than Shaq/Howard? He certainly has a better 18 foot jumpshot, "refined post game", and free throw shooting on both of them.
Yeah ask Dwight Howard about his lack of "pretty" ways he scores in the paint, and see if his deficiencies helps him score in the clutch moments in the 4th quarter
LeBron has no such problems over his career, and since you didn't actually answer my question I'll assume you prefer "skillset" to production.
If Carmelo is a better scorer why does he score less and score less efficiently?
I did answer it Carmelo has better production. But better production doesn't equate a team producing wins, you know that right? Like Michael Redd scoring 57 points in a loss because his team sucks
Its obvious his efficiency is lower when you are basically the only consistent scorer putting up points for your team for so many years. Look at those "lowly" Cavs teams Lebron was on. He had a plethora of scoring options on his team. Maybe Iverson, JR Smith, and Billups were the only scorers Carmelo ever had before he came to the Knicks
Paul Pierce's efficiency improved when the Big 3 came, and why is that? Because he had alot more help with the scoring load
Free throw shooting has nothing to do with problems with late game production. Just ask Shaq. He said it himself, if you dominate with the "pretty skillset" as you say, free throw shooting doesn't matter as much as you think
Why in almost 10 years of playing, Lebron still doesn't have a consistent 17 ft jumpshoot as a perimeter player? Or even basic post moves in the paint? It's those skillset moves that get you out of trouble when the defense is tight and the game slows down (AKA the last 5 min of the 4th quarter)
