What separates LeBron James from Carmelo Anthony?

What do you guys think separated Lebron from Melo from eachother when they were pretty close in terms of skill during their rookie season? Also, why do you think melo is regressing way faster even though Lebron depends on his athleticism more?

    Drive & Ambition. Melo was never serious about making his team better.

    Lebron is a better passer and was a far better defender, he also he won, or been on 3 teams that won NBA titles and made 6 other appearances in the finals, Carmelo has yet to even play in one NBA finals.

    Melo came into the league a better basketball player, Lebron grew his game while Melo never changed. If Melo would have formed with wade and bron like it was planned his legacy would be 100% different his name really was tarnished in the latter knicks seasons

    Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony both are completely different from each other. Let’s talk about Carmelo Anthony, he is a ultimate player but in this era of NBA championship people wants to see drives and three’s which gives Goosebumps to the audience. The Play of Carmelo Anthony is a mid-range play which shows the techniques of old NBA.

    But Lebron use his strength and speed for drive in for layups and dunks. But in the season of 2016-2017 he improves his skills on outside and long range shooting which separates Lebron from Carmelo Anthony. Lebron is a complete basketball player in this world, he knows how to defend and how to offense. He completely takes care of his body and he is also a good gifted athlete.

    Carmelo's style of play (mid-range isolation scorer) has been phased out of today's NBA. Today's NBA is about layups and 3's.

    Lebron's style of play has been primarily (using his speed/strength) to drive to the hoop for dunks/layups, but has improved his outside shooting has his career has progressed. Lebron is also a playmaker (Carmelo isn't) so he can run an offense and get teammates involved

    Lebron isn't slowing down because he's a genetically-gifted athlete and takes great care of his body

    LeBron James has PEDs and HGH, more than Melo.

    Out of LeBron's draft class only Melo, Wade, Zaza, and Kyle Korver are still playing. So, LeBron should not be playing at the level he is playing.

    He should have been on the decline a couple years ago. LeBron is just different.
