Carmelo Anthony should have won the 2012-2013 MVP award over Lebron James
Debate Rounds (3)
Lets look at there stats for the 2012-13 season,
Carmelo Anthony 28.7 ppg 6.9 rebounds 2.6 assist 44.9 fg % 37.9 3pt% .8 steals and .05 blocks
Lebron James 26.8 ppg 8.0 rebounds 7.3 assist 56.5 fg% 40.6 3pt% 1.7 steals .09 blocks
The only category in which Carmelo is leading him is scoring and thats only because he shot the ball on avg 5 times more. And even with Carmelo taking an average of 5 more shots than Lebron, Lebron still made more shots per game than Carmelo!!
Anakin forfeited this round.
My opponent made a compelling argument but sorry it still doesnt make him be the deserving mvp to a team that lost 12 more games than the Heat.
My opponent states:
"However while lebron might have better stats the MVP stands for most valuable player and melo is more valuable to the Knicks then James is to the heat"
The Knicks had 6 players avg in the double digits last year the Heat had 5.
Also, Lebron James led the Heat in Points, Rebounds, Steals, Assist, 2nd in blocks and minutes played
Carmelo Antony led the Knicks only in points, he didn't even play the most minutes, the guy you said that cause them problems played the most, JR Smith.
So in closing as my opponent said himself, the MVP is for most valuable player. I would think the player that led his team in minutes played, points, steals, rebounds, assist, 2nd in blk, and the best record in the NBA would be more valuable than a player who just led him team in points and lost 12 more games than Lebron. Also ,my opponent noted that Lebron did have better over stats than Carmelo.
Lastly my opponent didn't use any punctuation in any of his rounds....
Good battle but
Case is closed...
