Kevin Durant or Carmelo Anthony? Who would win in 1-on-1?

staff reports Published: January 21, 2014

This is a great NBA debate.

As a part of's Fan Night 1-on-1 voting, NBA writer Sekou Smith puts Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony in a hypothetical showdown situation.

From Smith: There’s no way you play this game, hypothetical or otherwise, in the make-it, take-it format. Because the first person to get the ball might never give it up. That’s how good both of these guys are.

Fans can vote on who would win, and Kevin Durant is currently winning the race.

The biggest advantage for Durant: defense. Durant could pose some threat to Melo defensively, but could Anthony stop Durant when necessary?
