Carmelo Anthony is a very good NBA player. Top 10-15 player in the league, if any college player reaches his level, he certainly wouldn’t be seen as a bust.
Hopefully, Parker can be an upgraded model of the current Carmelo. If that is the case, any team would be lucky to have him.
After dropping 23, 10, & 5 at MSG against UCLA, here is what Parker had to say about the Carmelo comparisons courtesy of SLAM.
“Yeah, it’s a good comparison,” Parker said after going for 23 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists as Duke beat UCLA, 80-63, in front of a capacity crowd that included Bruce Springsteen, Tyson Chandler and Tim Hardaway Jr.
“He mastered the fundamentals. He’s always good at his craft. He works on it and that’s a person I’ve been looking up to, so yeah, that’s good compliment.”
