The better player is the one that is most valuable to a "successful" team and if Hamilton manages to be a/the top player on an elite team, game breaking ability wouldn't be that much of a factor.
That's why I voted for Hamilton even though I like Rielly more. Right now, I'd say he's the better of the two, but that could change in a few years.
I never said Hamilton's points were bad or worthless, but a player who can put up those same kind of points and be a game-breaker is always the better player/worth more.
Game-breaking ability is very rare.
I also find it funny that you think Hamilton will be on Boston and Boston will be great for Hamilton's entire career.
