Chris Broussard: “I think Carmelo Anthony is better than 60-70% of the NBA. There is no question he is good enough to play in the NBA… He’s good enough to be in an 8-man rotation for every team in the league and several teams he could start and get you 15 points a night. The question is not whether he’s good enough, it’s the fit. I feel bad for him.”
Listen to Chris Broussard explain why he still thinks free agent Carmelo Anthony is better than ‘70%’ of the NBA, as the former NBA scoring champion who many consider to be a first ballot Hall of Famer continues on a depressing fall from grace.
The 10-time All-Star, 6-time All-NBA player, and 2013 scoring champion hasn’t appeared in an NBA game since November of 2018, and is still without a contract after one of the most frenetic summer signing periods in league history.
Broussard still believes Carmelo could be a 15.0 point per game scorer, but thinks it’s Carmelo’s own fault for not willing to accept a heavily complimentary role on the second-team.
Check out the audio below as Broussard says Anthony needs to either alter his mindset, or accept that his NBA mortality is here.
