Don’t let his team’s record fool you – Anthony belongs in the conversation with the best.
For his entire career, Anthony has often been criticized for his lack of playoff wins. While he hasn’t been successful in the playoffs, this shouldn’t take away from the player Anthony is.
In his 14 seasons, Anthony has been named an All-Star 11 times and has been named to an All-NBA Team six times. In his career, Anthony averages 24.9 points per game, 3.2 assists per game and 6.6 rebounds per game while shooting 45% from the field. Anthony’s combination of size and shooting makes him a weapon anywhere on the floor. In a recent Players Tribune Article, Paul Pierce said that Anthony was the toughest player to defend.
This year, Anthony has one of his better opportunities to make a playoff run with the Knicks, as the team acquired Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee, and Brandon Jennings this offseason. This roster can make the playoffs, and we will see if Anthony can spur some sort of a run come April.
