Long considered a scorer and scorer only, the Knicks' superstar is expanding his game and becoming the leader so many wished he'd become.

By Yaron Weitzman  @YaronWeitzman on Jan 6, 2016, 3:52p


Maybe it's because Carmelo Anthony is now 31 and coming off the worst season of his career. Maybe Phil Jackson's beloved Triangle offense -- and the Zen philosophy he attaches to it -- has rubbed off on Anthony. Maybe Anthony now actually respects the players surrounding him and even seems to enjoy playing with them.

Whatever the reason, Anthony has changed this year and is having greater awakening over the last week. He still calls for isolations and tough pull-up jumpers, and he always will. But now, dazzling passes and tough defensive rebounds are sprinkled in. Better yet, he's often smiling and has surprisingly become the wise old head for the New York Knicks.

"He's starting to find out how he can dominate the game in different fashions," Knicks head coach Derek Fisher said Tuesday night following the Knicks' 107-101 road win over the Atlanta Hawks, via the Wall Street Journal's Chris Herring. "That's what leaders do."

Leader isn't a label we've associated with Anthony over the years. But after a Tuesday victory in Atlanta in which Anthony finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, the Knicks have 17 wins, exactly as many as they won all of last year. Standout rookie Kristaps Porzingis has certainly made a difference, as have newcomers Arron Afflalo, Robin Lopez and Derrick Williams. But Anthony's maturation -- from last season to this one and from the beginning of this season to now -- has played the biggest role.

Anthony's newfound interest in moving the ball jumps out the most. Not only is he embracing the "sharing is caring" mantra, but he's also been efficient with his passes. He's especially focused on using his ability to suck in a defense to create open looks for his teammates. Only once in his career has Anthony assisted on a higher percentage of teammates' baskets.

Recently, he's become even more generous. Over the Knicks' last four contests, Anthony's assists have created 13.5 points per game, according to NBA.com. That's five more than the 29 games prior to that. This is how the Knicks have managed to go 3-1 in that span despite Anthony struggling with his shot.

These dishes have come in a variety of ways and from all over the court. Some have been off dribble penetration.

http://oi64.tinypic.com/24qjnmw.jpg

Some have come off the pick-and-roll, where Anthony's size and ball-handling ability allow him to thread the smallest of openings.

http://oi67.tinypic.com/5khpfn.jpg

Some have come from the middle of the floor, where he's able to survey a defense like a quarterback in the pocket.

http://oi63.tinypic.com/waog88.jpg

Many have come out of the post, where Anthony has always been a dangerous passer, if not always a willing one.

http://oi64.tinypic.com/2vm8sw6.jpg

Over the last four games, Anthony is dishing the ball out of the post nearly seven percent more frequently, per NBA.com. He's become especially adept at drawing double teams and then hitting either Jose Calderon or Aflfalo cross-court for an open three-pointer.

http://oi67.tinypic.com/293vlom.jpg

It's no accident that Afflalo has gone off for 61 points in his last two games, including that Klay Thompson impression against the Hawks on Sunday.

More noteworthy, though, is what Anthony has been doing without the ball in his hands. He's never had a problem sweating or banging on the offensive end, but he hasn't exactly made defensive effort a priority throughout his career.

That is no longer the case. He's now pressuring opponents when on the ball and being attentive when off it. Notice how he positioned himself perfectly in the paint and then jumped in for a steal.

http://oi67.tinypic.com/25klqbp.jpg

When shots go up, he's now crashing the boards in a way he never has, on both sides of the floor. If Draymond Green pulled off the following rebound-and-tap-out move, the clip would go viral and the talk would focus on his innate knack for making winning plays. Apparently Carmelo has that ability, too.

http://oi67.tinypic.com/ws9rvk.jpg

The clip above is not an outlier, either. Over the last four games, Anthony is grabbing more than double the percentage of contested rebounds that he was earlier in the year, via NBA.com.

All this gels with his evolved public personality. In 2015, Anthony spoke out about gun control and prison reform and marched with Black Lives Matter protesters in Baltimore. Obviously, none of that directly has to do with basketball, but Anthony's commitment to social causes does suggest that he's becoming more introspective.

That quality also manifests itself on the court. Instead of appearing jealous over the praise being heaped upon his city's new favorite son -- like he was when Jeremy Lin burst onto the scene -- Anthony has gone out of his way to make Porzingis feel welcome and at ease. His decision Tuesday night to jump in the middle of a scuffle between Porzingis and Hawks forward Kent Bazemore was just the latest example of Anthony standing up for his prized teammate.

"We're going to do something about that to help him out a bit ," Anthony said afterwards, via the New York Post. "He showed some grit out there. Someone walked up into your chest, you stand your ground. That's what he did. He showed some grit out there. Someone walked up into your chest, you stand your ground. That's what he did.''

Anthony is showing that he is capable of being a more complete player and leader. It's no accident the Knicks are overachieving.

and the knicks have better jumpshooters than they had in the past.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

The best defense against Kawhi was double teams & refs not calling fouls when he was being hammered. I don't want to hear about Melo stans complaining about foul calls, ever.

Melo was getting his pork shoulders snatched when he wasn't putting up bricks: https://vine.co/v/ihUPWBXKnrd

great cuz you didn't hear anyone complaining about Melo foul calls. only person complaining about not getting foul calls is you crying about GOAT SF.

>Melo was getting his pork shoulders snatched when he wasn't

so it's Melo fault Calderon made a bad pass and turned the ball over? man go sit your dumb Asperger's addled ass in a corner facing the wall and be quiet.

Maybe you should consult the Chairman of the FartMelo fan club Omittal_Established (O_E) b/c that has been his excuse for Melo not disappearing in the 4th quarter of playoff games.

Kawhi absolutely got hammered at the end of the game but it was a no call when Danny Green was getting whistled for bumping Melo on his drives all game long.

>so it's Melo fault Calderon made a bad pass and turned the
>ball over?

Big Dummy, Melo didn't move towards the ball after calling for it & Kawhi had to lunge past him to get to the ball. Kawhi reacted faster & jumped the pass (made easy b/c Melo didn't even try to shield him) rather than Calderon throwing a "bad pass".

>man go sit your dumb Asperger's addled ass in a

You mean like what Melo does after cleaning out his locker at the end of every season? Care to join him when you aren't ass up, face down getting a train run on you during your day job as 40thStreetWhore.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

including the 2 blocks by West + Duncan on the help side teaming up on one of the blocks attributed to Kawhi.

I'm talking about right today against Kawhi, but keep crying about GOAT SF not getting calls though. And Green only got whistled for one foul on Melo, liar.

>reacted faster & jumped the pass (made easy b/c Melo didn't

little dummy, Melo was moving parallel to Calderon sliding away from Kawhi but instead of leading the pass towards where Melo was moving he telegraphed it straight like Melo was standing still, right to where Kahwi was waiting for it. but that's Melo fault too, right? go sit your dumb ass back down in the corner you dunce.

>teaming up on one of the blocks attributed to Kawhi.

Deng had Hassan Whiteside but couldn't FORCE Melo to drive into a help defender. Meanwhile Kawhi has a guy who isn't know for being a rim protector (David West) playing help defense & you are acting like he had Bill Russell *SMH* but then Kawhi makes his teammates better.

>little dummy, Melo was moving parallel to Calderon sliding
>away from Kawhi but instead of leading the pass towards where
>Melo was moving he telegraphed it straight like Melo was
>standing still,

This has to be the biggest plea cop for a guy shuffling his feet instead of running towards the ball. When a guy picks up his dribble you have to go for a hand off or run towards the pass when Kawhi is anywhere in the vicinity! Did you want Calderon to double dribble & hand it off to Melo as if he's a busboy handing him his drink. But then Melo is used to clapping waiters to have his pork shoulders served & you are probably his busboy. He must tip you well to defended a perennial loser *SHRUGS*

>nah that was your moms in that German scheiße video getting

Actually, my family has no contact with foreigners but apparently you have a thing for interracial German porn & is used to getting cucked by white guys....uhhhhhhhh, TMI.

The fuck are you babbling about now? I didn't say a thing about Kawhi had a dominant rim protector behind him. I just said he had help, which he did. And btw Tim is still one of the best rim protectors in the league + West has a 94 DRtg and is second on SA in DBPM to Tim (GOAT SF is 3rd). But keep acting like Kawhi was out there by himself defending Melo solo the whole game with no help.


>This has to be the biggest plea cop for a guy shuffling his
>feet instead of running towards the ball. When a guy picks up

you acting like Calderon was trapped in the corner with a defender draped on him or some shit. All he had to do was pass the ball towards where Melo was moving i.e. away from where Kawhi was instead of telegraphing it straight where Kawhi was waiting for it. It's actually listed as "Calderon bad pass turnover" on the NBA.com video log - LOL.


>Actually, my family has no contact with foreigners but
>apparently you have a thing for interracial German porn & is
>used to getting cucked by white guys....uhhhhhhhh, TMI.

Maybe that's why you turned out as a socially maladjusted weirdo. well that and your mom being featured in interracial German scheiße porn.

-They had the same amount of rebounds
-Boxscore Bobbying & bringing up assists as if that's the sole indicator of playmaking. (Calderon missed a wide open 3 so let's not give Melo credit b/c his teammate missed it & Affalo had more assist so better playmaker than Melo, lol)

28. "Fuck I care what Melo does against incompetent wingplayers..."
In response to Reply # 27
Sun Jan-10-16 05:59 PM by FILF

  

          

On the season against the Spurs while primarily being defended by Kawhi:

-11/2: 4/17 (Previous game vs. Otto: 11-18, season-high 37 pts)
-1/8: 5-15 (Previous game vs. Deng: 9-12 (season best shooting %), 25 pts)

No shame on Melo, Kawhi has been stifling every wingplayer he has faced all season long.

Kawhi has a much lower usage rate than any of the top SFs & plays in a system which isn't conducive to putting up big numbers (look no further than LMA who's putting up Thad Young numbers) but yet he still has an elite Win-share.

EDIT: Melo has been the 5th best SF by every metric & hasn't been more valuable than Gordon Hayward. CRY!

If he wasn't a diva then I wouldn't mention his name but apparently the Lakers season is dedicate to him so he wants to be a hot topic.

You seem to have your panties in bunches but then I would to if RC passed up Porzingis after drafting Randle then topping it off by hiring Byron to celebrate mediocrity.

The Lakers are a traveling circus & Kobe is the clown so I'll keep enjoying the show & giving him a shout-out b/c I truly find him to be amusing. CRY!

Otherwise it goes to Philly.

As far as Kobe, I didn't have much expectation that Kobe would change his game all that much this year...his stubbornness is what made him great and now on the back-end, it has led to what we see this year. Of course in an ideal world we'd see him changing but I have 19 years of evidence that told me it wouldn't be that much of a difference...I can certainly understand how you may be frustrated since you just started watching this year though.

I still don't like lopez/calderon but they both been better as of late. Lopez gets great position and can score in the post and Calderon is, well, still terrible and dumb on defense.

end. Calderon only takes high percentage shots but very rarely does he create scoring opps for others.

His defense shortcomings are masked bc he's got Zingis/Lopez behind him. They are both great and reacting and recovering. He commits a ton of dumb jrsmithesque and1 fouls too.

and covered up by Lopez sounds like a stretch to me. But ehh. We don't have to agree. Shyt. They are winning and putting out a solid team every game so it really doesn't matter either way.

Given all the positive attention Porzingis is garnering, I have to think Adam Silver will look to book more national TV coverage for the Knicks in upcoming years, since NYC is a major media market and all.

but no one really cares in the big scheme of things if you ain't making the playoffs. Even some teams that make the playoffs don't mean make a wrinkle bc they need to take it to the next level.

If the knicks go 40-42 and miss the playoffs sure it was an alright year but we didn't really accomplish anything.

If we make the playoffs, we can at least write it off as an accomplishment and it probably wouldn't hurt come fagency. Also would be nice to get porzingis some playoff games under his belt.

But us just missing the playoffs can be lumped in the same category of about 6-8 other teams that missed the playoffs but showed some promise.

"As for Anthony, it's almost pathetic how much squealing praise he gets for playing passable defense and passing the ball. How many breathless stories do we have to read about how this newly matured Melo trusts his teammates? Did anyone not realize that passing and defense were good things? Did anyone watch the 2012-13 Knicks? It has been obvious for years that Anthony is a gifted passer -- and that his teams find new harmony when he indulges in that gift."

to open 3 point shooters a la Bron, played tough defense on Hayward (Gordon still had a good game but he had to work for it). yeah you might be right.

Definitely the best game I've seen Williams have too. dude was trying to exorcise the ghost of Charles Smith on that multiple-tip putback.

haven't seen an "RPM/mill" stat listed anywhere, but as far as actual RPM:

Big Dummy, I'm aware that RPM adjusts for the quality of players but it simply means RPM credits at minimal against shitty teams, it's not going to be a negative or neutral. The margin b/w Manu/FatMelo is laughable compared to FatMelo/PG.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

He's been shooting poorly since he sprained his ankle stepping on the ref's foot(He was locked in before that). Had it going tonight though. Hope he gets that knee and ankle right with the break, and finishes the season strong.

From Elias: Carmelo Anthony had a team high 19 points but also contributed with 11 rebounds and six assists in the Knicks' win over the Magic on Friday. It marked the eighth time this season that Anthony has recorded at least 10 rebounds and five assists in a game. Anthony had only six games of that kind in a Knicks uniform prior to the 2015-16 season. Over the last 19 seasons, the only other Knicks player to register at least eight games with 10 rebounds and five assists in a single season is David Lee in 2009-10 (21).

In response to Reply # 97


  

          

Actually, his ego might have been injured but last I checked his ankle injury occurred on Jan 12th which was BEFORE either match ups against Kawhi.

Again,

On the season against the Spurs while primarily being defended by Kawhi:

Gm 1-11/2: 4/17 (Previous game vs. Otto: 11-18, season-high 37 pts)
Gm 2-1/8: 5-15 (Previous game vs. Deng: 9-12 (season best shooting %), 25 pts)

No shame on Melo, Kawhi has been stifling every wingplayer he has faced all season long: http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2015/11/3/9664178/kawhi-leonard-highlights-spurs-knicks-carmelo-anthony

Kawhi has a much lower usage rate than any of the top SFs & plays in a system which isn't conducive to putting up big numbers (look no further than LMA who's putting up Thad Young numbers) but yet he still has an elite Win-share.

Melo has been the 5th best SF by every metric & hasn't been that much more valuable than Gordon Hayward. CRY!

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

Again, more points on less shots, more assists, as many rebounds with more on the offensive glass, higher (+/-)

I'm sorry that hurts your feelings so much.

exactly, Kawhi is a system player. thank you for the confirmation of that.

Melo has been ahead of Kawhi by the metrics for scoring, rebounding and assists & has been more valuable than Manu.

btw Ginobrick has only been slightly more valuable while on the court than Dirk (and has produced less value overall since he's only part-time player). WEINEN!

I don't care what Melo did when he wasn't being defend by Kawhi, sorry we don't accept EBT cards. The tapes don't lie but Melo probably tried to burn them both.

>exactly, Kawhi is a system player. thank you for the
>confirmation of that.

Except Kawhi is the NOW the system.

>Melo has been ahead of Kawhi by the metrics for scoring,
>rebounding and assists & has been more valuable than Manu.

You mean like how D-Lee had better stats than KG in '09-'10?

>btw Ginobrick has only been slightly more valuable while on
>the court than Dirk (and has produced less value overall since
>he's only part-time player). WEINEN!

Based on those "slight" differences, 40thstreetwhore has concluded that Dirk is Kareem & Manu is Byron Scott.
