Is Kyle Korver better than Carmelo Anthony?

Oklahoma City forward Carmelo Anthony reacted to an Instagram post saying Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver is a better player than him. While it may be a wild assertion to some, others feel that Korver's three-point shooting is invaluable. Plus, Korver helped a team to the Eastern Conference Finals, while Anthony is sitting at home. Still, the numbers show the former Syracuse player has a bigger impact on his team and is a better overall player. What do you think? 🏀

How far did Anthony take the Oklahoma City Thunder in the playoffs? Oh, a first-round exit? That's what I thought.

Kyle Korver has been a key piece in the Cavaliers' deep run into the playoffs, shooting 46.1 percent from three-point range and scoring 10.4 points per game through 16 contests. Anthony didn't do any better, scoring 11.8 points in his six playoff games while shooting 21.4 percent from three-point range and 37.5 percent from the field. Melo can act surprised all he wants, but at this point in their respective careers, Korver is putting Anthony in the ground.

You have to be kidding. Kyle Korver better than Carmelo Anthony? There's trolling and then there's lunacy. This is the latter.

Anthony objectively had his worst season this past year, but to say he isn't better than one-trick-pony Kyle Korver is just wrong. He can score anywhere on the court and has enough strength to rebound the ball in traffic. His presence shifts defenses over, making things easier for his teammates. Korver might be deeper in the playoffs, but he isn't a better player than Anthony.
