Carmelo Anthony Scouting Report by Hollinger:

Quote:
Scouting report
+ Dominant power forward masquerading as a 3. Elite scorer with great handle.
+ Average shooter who will force it. Can overpower smaller wings on the block.
+ Decent passer but a lethargic defender, especially on the wing. Excellent rebounder.

Analysis
The move to New York pretty much guaranteed that Anthony would become the most overrated player in basketball, and folks haven't disappointed me on that front. Routinely referred to as a superstar despite the pesky fact that his teams don't improve all that much with him on the court, Anthony is better described as an extreme volume scorer. Last season he averaged a staggering 26.5 points per 40 minutes, but with a league-average true shooting percentage, ordinary assist and turnover numbers, and little to no defense. It's hard to conclude that he made a huge impact on New York's bottom line.

The big problem for Melo is that he likes long 2s, but long 2s don't like him. He made only 36.9 percent of his 2s from 10 feet and beyond, but attempted nearly eight a game. He also shot just 30.5 percent on 3s. Going to the cup it's a different story; Anthony had the eighth-best free throw rate among small forwards and makes his free throws. But he had two jump shots for every attempt at the rim.

The exception was when he played as a power forward, in which case he just destroyed people. Bigger defenders can't keep up with him on the dribble and struggle chasing him around the perimeter; according to 82games.com, Anthony had a PER of 29.5 as a 4 and just 17.3 as a 3 last season.

His splits from other seasons aren't quite as dramatic, but he certainly isn't worse as a 4; between the league's trend toward smaller and faster lineups and Anthony being a huge 3 who isn't getting any younger, it seems an obvious progression. He already rebounds like a power forward, ranking eighth among small forwards in rebound rate.

Playing the 4 may also diminish Anthony's defensive problems. He openly loafs on the perimeter and isn't all that quick laterally to start, but relishes physical play and has no problem banging against bigger players. New York gave up 4.2 points per 100 possessions more with Anthony on the court last season, which is another reason he just doesn't move the needle that much as a small forward. As a floor-spacing 4 with an elite defender behind him, perhaps he could finally deliver production that's at least somewhat close to his exalted reputation.


Scouting report? Do we have a 1st round pick this year to draft this guy or can we just buy a 2nd round pick and nab him?



..average shooter? lol

'Sheed is officially a Knick.

PG: Felton / Kidd / Prigioni
SG: Shumpert / Smith / Brewer
SF: Anthony / Novak
PF: Stoudemire / Thomas / Wallace
C: Chandler / Camby

If nothing, we're pretty deep.

The battle of NY will be so ill to watch man. I hope by playoff time somebody in the east other than the Celtics can challenge the Heat. MIA is so strong.

Only six returning players. Amar'e Stoudemire is the longest tenured Knick and he has only played two seasons with the team.

Looked damn good in the first quarter. Need to keep Amare out of the starting lineup and start the OG Kurt Thomas Laughing . Loved the ball movement, Melo and Smith played very well.

The Knicks new uni's need more black. They could have the nicest ones in the game if they designed them right.

I still can't believe Lin isn't in NY. He's from the Bay, so I wanted to see him continue to ball on the biggest stage.
