Carmelo Anthony's season didn't end in the best fashion, and Kyle Korver is experiencing a career resurgence with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Though Korver has had a better postseason than Melo, the fact remains that Melo has had a far superior NBA career.

He's made 10 All-Star teams to Korver's one (2015), and he finished third in MVP voting in 2012-13. He's long been the cornerstone of his franchise while Korver has spent his career as a stellar role player.

Some fans have overreacted to the moment. One even threw up an Instagram photo claiming Korver is, in fact, a better NBA player than Melo. Melo took offense to it, sliding into the comments and saying "FOH."

Melo's out here in the IG comments 😂

Both players were selected in the 2003 NBA Draft. Melo went No. 3 to the Denver Nuggets, and Korver went No. 51 to the New Jersey Nets (he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for cash later that night).

This season, Anthony posted averages of 16.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. He shot 35.7 percent from downtown despite receiving consistent open looks. He struggled to fit into Billy Donovan's Oklahoma City system alongside stars Paul George and Russell Westbrook.

Korver has emerged as perhaps Cleveland's second most reliable option in the playoffs. He struggled in Wednesday's Game 3 in Boston, though, putting up only seven points on 2-for-6 shooting in 19 minutes.
