A game-changing forward is an essential part of success in today's NBA. Be they perimeter-oriented shooters, athletic slashers or back-to-the-basket types, the forwards whom teams are building around come from every mold. Carmelo Anthony and Blake Griffin are two of the NBA's most dynamic forwards for very different reasons. Anthony is the sweet-shooting flamethrower who's a threat to put 40 in the books on any given night. Griffin is the raw bundle of athleticism who combines a high-wire act with....

Interesting article. Being the better scorer doesn't mean your the better player. Blake is better in almost every aspect other than scoring. ....

Blake's better, but I think Carmelo is one hell of a player and would be the ideal 3rd man on our team for a Dynasty. Not gonna happen but I can dream can't I? Oh and who wrote the article? ....

I love Griffin and think Melo is a bit overrated, but at this point I don't think Griffin's better. Melo is legitimately the best player and scorer on that Knicks team and really carries them, even though they have some talent around him. Griffin couldn't carry the load Carmelo does and plays with Chris Paul. Griffin does do plenty of things better, but the scoring advantage Melo has over him is huge. ....

Neither player is terrific at defense at all, I wouldn't even say they are good either. Melo should be getting his 6-8 boards a game because he's athletic and like 6'8. Blake doesn't get the blocks but he steals the ball rather well and can rebound well, when motivated. Anthony isn't much of a ball hawk or a blocker. Melo can't pass, or rather doesn't. Blake is exceptional at passing given his height and position he plays. Who is better? I really....

Griffin is a better passer, rebounder and defender. So we can all confidently say Blake is the more balanced and all around player. Either way though the 10 ppg scoring difference and the fact that Melo can carry the Knicks as the undisputed go to guy so often puts him on top. So while Blake isn't a worse player really, Melo is better due to the fact that he's more proven and can carry an offense. ....

Only maybe 5 players in the NBA can you give the ball and get 25+ every night and Melo is one of them. The value of that is HUGE. Blake and CP3 aren't there. You need that guy more come playoff time than an all around player who's a 2nd or 3rd option. ....

Didn't read. Melo is obviously better but Blake's ceiling is much higher.

Its close but this season I would say Melo. He is having his best season ever I will give him his due. He is a tad overrated though and I say this as a Knicks fan. ....
