There is no doubt that Carmelo Anthony retired as one of the most efficient scorers in modern basketball.
Despite that, the dearth of media recognition that Melo has experienced throughout his career can be ascribed to his lack of postseason accolades.
Melo was elite in mid-range and had a good jumper from beyond the arc as well. In 2005, the Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson released a DVD on “The Fundamentals of Basketball”.
The DVD featured Melo in it, who was being paid $3,471,360 by the Nuggets that year.
Anthony was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 2003 on a four-year, $15,108,241 contract. He played for the city for a total of eight seasons.
During his stint with the Nuggets, Melo emerged to become one of the leaders on his team. However, he didn’t have much postseason success.
The star forward averaged 24.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 564 games for the Nuggets in the regular season. He played 45 playoff games for his first team and averaged 24.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 3.0 assists.
Magic Johnson chose Carmelo Anthony for the jump shot fundamental lessons
Johnson was shooting The Fundamentals of Basketball in 2005. It was a two-hour video to help viewers understand and learn basketball.
Magic chose Melo, who was drafted into the league only two years ago, for the jump shot fundamentals of basketball.
So it was a green signal from the Lakers legend already that the 2013 NBA Scoring Champion had the prettiest jump shot.
In the video, Melo is introduced and asked to showcase his jump shot. Guess who was the assist guy, Magic himself, who kept hyping up Melo before his shots with words of encouragement.
“See he is laughing. He knows he is the best shooter out here. That’s why you got to shoot all the time. That’s what they pay you to do, shoot, shoot, and shoot.”
Fans raved about the former player in the comments section. While one wrote, “Best dance form ever,” another user wrote: “I’ve said it before… Milo is the Ken Griffey Jr. of basketball! Best hopping, best swing, and some other users have called Anthony the best soccer player in Championship history.
Several players have admitted the headache of keeping Carmelo. On a recent episode of Podcast P with Paul George, the Los Angeles Clippers star said that Milo is excellent at his craft.
According to Paul, there are two factors that make Milo so dangerous. First, it requires less space to operate.
Secondly, he made the fastest first move. Previously, Paul Pierce has also said that protecting Anthony is a difficult task when he can hit a player in the stomach so many times that he collapses.
Milo’s son, Keanu Anthony, talks trash to his father and calls him old
On May 22, 2023, Anthony announced that he is retiring from basketball. Despite being 38 years old, he averaged over 13 points with the Lakers at the end of the 2021-22 season.
After retiring, Milo is focusing on his family and preparing his son, Kian Anthony, to play in the NBA. Kian played basketball with his father for a long time and never hesitated to say crap to him.
During a recent appearance on the Extra podcast, he spoke candidly about his family, the future of basketball, and his father’s legacy.
Kian also dumped his father, Milo, on the show. Kian spoke candidly about the game and his father’s age, humorously saying, “My dad is too old to keep up with me.”
