Carmelo Anthony is a top five scorer in the league and showed that he cannot be stopped when at his best. The Nets do not have a player like that who can take over a game and score from anywhere on the court at will.
Williams is a top point guard in the league and has showed he can score with the best of them, but a bigger defender can help shut D-Will down if the ball finds him to often during games.
Anthony is arguably the third best scorer in the NBA behind Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant and has proven his clutch ability in big moments. He's also playing alongside Stoudemire, who was playing at an MVP level just a season ago in 2010.
Moral of the story: the New York Knicks are currently the kings of New York.
