Carmelo Anthony aka Melo has been subjected to tons of criticism but in my eyes he still remains one of the deadliest scorer the NBA has ever seen. What made him really lethal was his quick first step that allowed him to annihilate anyone in front of him. He mostly got his buckets from the high posts via jumpers and a series of moves that left his defender defenseless.
The NBA has transitioned from the era of hero ball to spacing, volume shooting and fast break points and guys like Carmelo are part of a dying breed of players. I don’t think that his style of play could serve any other NBA roster at this moment especially if he refuses to come off the bench. So I think Melo has realized that his playing days are over and this new YouTube channel ( Carmelo Anthony) he started is a sign of a new beginning for him.
I’m excited to see the types of content the channel is going to host. Interestingly his very first episode was not about basketball but soccer so I wonder what Melo has up his sleeves. You can watch the entire show in the video below and be sure to subscribe to his channel
