Why Carmelo Anthony Is The Icing On The Cake For OKC? The Proof Via Coach Nick

Sharing is caring!

I went and dug into Coach Nick’s old archives and was able to find a video comparing and contrasting  Carmelo Anthony’s role with the Knicks versus his role on the USA team in the FIBA tournament. It’s clear that  team USA is loaded with superstars playing against the rest of the world inferior competition; but one thing stood out: Melo was thriving in that system because all he was needed for was spotting up for wide open triples and scoring. With the Knicks, all we saw from Melo was a single individual literally carrying the whole team on his back as far as scoring was concerned. I think his current situation in OKC will allow him to score with more ease if coach Donovan can figure out a way to make Russ and PG13 into play makers. Watch the vidoe below courtesy of Coach Nick from Bballbreakdown  and you’ll understand why I’m confident about Melo being in the perfect situation at this time in his career.
