The sports network has put out a Top 100 Players list before the start of every National Basketball Association season for the past seven years, with last year's list ranking the New York Knicks forward as the 31st best player in the National Basketball Association.
"Entering his 15th season, Anthony's days as a top-50 player might be finished as he comes in 33 spots below last season's ranking". One year after ranking 31st among all National Basketball Association players, Anthony's preseason ranking plummeted to 64th. "The only players in National Basketball Association history to average at least 20 points per game in each of their first 15 seasons are Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a club Anthony could join in 2017-18".
Last season with the Knicks, Melo averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game, which is a pretty solid stat line for a guy who is projected to be the 64th best player in the league.
Carmelo Anthony isn't one of those athletes. Before we get to his reaction, we should point out he's been upset at rankings in the past.
