Who would you rather have: Carmelo Anthony or Jared Dudley?

Former NBA player Royce White went at LeBron James for not advocating hard enough for Carmelo Anthony to come to the Los Angeles Lakers while Jared Dudley got signed. White even went as far as saying he would slap anyone who thinks Dudley can hold Anthony's jockstrap, and some are agreeing with him. Others think Dudley is a better fit because he's willing to play a role and not demand as many shots as Anthony will. Who would you want more? 🏀

People might not like a former NBA player butting into someone else's business, but he's right. Carmelo Anthony brings more explosiveness than Jared Dudley ever did his entire career. The former All-Star might not be the elite scorer he was in his prime, but he definitely has the presence to be a threat on offense and brings solid rebounding.

Anyone that says they want Dudley more than Anthony is lying.

This isn't a debate about talent. Anthony is obviously more talented, but he isn't a better fit.

On a team with LeBron James, Dudley's game is a better match with what he wants to do. Dudley is currently a better three-point shooter and hustles on defense where Anthony is a little streakier. Anthony may have come off the bench in the past, but it was a role he was hesitant to take. There are no issues from Dudley when it comes to that.
