New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony and Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson are the top scorers on their respective teams. With the Knicks-Nets rivalry becoming suddenly legitimate, these two players will find themselves fighting for the attention of New York basketball fans.

The two players have had similar careers in a lot of ways. They are both prolific scorers who have some weaknesses in their games and are yet to see great postseason success.

Johnson—joining the Nets this season—will be playing for his fourth NBA team. In his 11 years in the league, he has reached the conference semifinals five times. However, he has failed to go any further. 

Anthony has played on two teams—the Denver Nuggets and now the Knicks—and has reached the second round of the playoffs only once so far in his nine years as a player.

Who is the better player? And who will do more for New York basketball this season?
