Tough to say, it's close.
I think T-Mac was a better scorer than Wade or Carmelo.
imo, Lebron and Kobe are the only guys in the NBA right now who are at T-Mac's level as a scorer.
And yeah, the game has changed over the years in terms of who the "main" guys are (i.e. what position they play).
But T-Mac could fill it up.
He was the dumbest great player I've ever seen (mental mistakes), but the dude could score.
I agree. Orlando T-Mac was definitely the best scorer. The statistics might fool you though. They one-upped each other in those 4 seasons. But I watched both of them during those times and T-Mac was the most prolific scorer I've seen since Jordan and though Kobe today is on his heels, he still isn't on par with the T-Mac in an Orlando uniform. T-Mac could shoot the lights out from practically anywhere. He had scoring outbursts every other game. He just had the ability to score in bunches (and then some) night in and night out. It'll be hard to top Orlando T-Mac today. The only guy I see who could possibly compare to him in the coming years is Kevin Durant. But for now, Orlando T-Mac remains the best scorer since Michael Jordan. And I just wanted to say, that trade to Houston destroyed him. Had he stayed in Orlando, he would be in Kobe's place today. In constant discussion as to who is the best in the league and a sure fire Top 3 Player. But that trade just prevented it from happening.
a question that doesn't want to make me break my computer screen.
I think you make a really good point though. I never really liked Orlando or T-Mac until he came to the Rockets. That was my very first NBA jersey. I don't know if I would jump to conclusion and say he is better than anyone today though even though that might be true...there is always wade, lebron and those other free agents though that scored a lot on there sucky teams. Guess we just have to wait and find out.
