I'm sticking with Melo. I don't think he's THAT close to Lebron, but he's the closest imo.

I think Harden too. Given his passing ability.

Re: josh smith - not the scorer or passer harden/lebron are

Josh smith size and defense + harden offense = LBJ

Batum is a little more perimeter oriented due to build, but I think he's a decent comp. Don't think anyone really comes come to skills/style due to his build/athleticism combo.

Harden is a good one

Rondo, Rose, Westbrook are in their own category. They are guarding 1s exclusively

LeBron has a very unique skill set.

In terms of just talent--- not the mindset, not the dedication, not the willingness to fit in with others-- it's probably Melo.

Mind, there are a ton of guys with different skill sets that fit in between those two, in any serious conversation of who the second best player in the league is, but they are the 'most similar' for a point of comparison.
