Carmelo Says He’s Been Passive in 4th Q,Trying to Make Guys Better

Carmelo Anthony Doesn't Want To Leave New York.

Carmelo Anthony has never been shy about getting shots up throughout his career. He’s a great scorer who isn’t going to change at this point in his career. After last night’s game though, he said maybe he is being a too passive in the 4th quarter of games this season:

“For myself, maybe I’m second-guessing myself as well,” Anthony said Monday after the Knicks’ practice. “Maybe I’m a little bit passive out there, trying to do things that’s out of the norm and trying to make people better at the wrong times

“That’s where I’m second-guessing myself. And I’m second-guessing my shot, and should I take this or should I pass this. I got to get out of that mentality quick.”

The Knicks are 1-2 so far this season and of course are hitting the panic button. Melo is just 7-22 in the 4th quarter this season though so maybe he does need to get back to playing his game. Honestly all this means is that he will put up 30 shots in their next game.

  • It seems that the Knicks have forgotten how to play as a team and have become too drunk with watching Carmelo handle the ball. Case in point, the other night the knicks played the Chicago Bulls and as awful as they played still had to chance to win. With only 5 seconds to play, the inbound pass went into Carmelo. Surprised? Instead of taking a high percentage shot like driving to the hoop, instead the great Carmelo who wants to test the free agent market took it on himself to dribble the ball at the top of the key and shot at the top of the arc. What the truck! You mean someone with his skill set could not figure out that if you had driven to the hoop maybe, just maybe. Selfish hero! You have to also question the coach allowing this to continue. I am tired of watching such poor decisions being made on the court. Great players make team mates greater players. Not so with Carmelo. He is not Walt Frazier or Earl the Pearl or Bernard King. Even James passes the ball and knows that it is not all about himself.
