You're definitely obscuring the facts there.
-For me, KD clearly gets his shots in the flow of the offense which makes him not comparable to Melo in that way (plus he simply scores more while being more efficient). Durant shot 50% with 30ppg this year!! Melo could only dream of hitting either of those numbers.
-Westbrook gets criticized constantly.
-Harden is starting to get criticized constantly. He is a better playmaker/less of a ball stopper than Carmelo, but he deserves huge criticism for his playoff performances. He is out of shape and just straight up choking so far. Plus his ugly flopping playstyle, but that's a separate issue. And his leadership qualities seem to be about Melo-level.
Also Melo really will never win
