How so? There is no way he is a "much more complete" player because Melo was a borderline top 10 player throughout his prime, just like George. On top of that, to be a much more complete player than Melo you need to be someone like Jimmy Butler or LeBron James, something George doesn't yet hold a candle too.
George is a better passer and defender then Melo. Both Butler and George are better then Melo.
George is barely a better passer, and his defense has certainly slipped since his offensive load has increased. George's offensive value still is less than what Prime Carmelo provided, and the scoring isn't close at all.
Even with slipping defense, his defense blows Melo out of the water.
