Happy Birthday to Nuggets, Knicks, and NBA Legend Carmelo Anthony. Thank you for always staying loyal and always giving it your all throughout all this disappointing years in which you give what you got and there's usually no supporting cast to give anything.
There's always that huge bunch of people hate on this man and act like he's just some average joe chucking up shots and losing games. In Denver, he LED them to the playoffs EVERY YEAR including his rookie year. Regardless of winning that everlasting title that he's been chasing, this man is a WINNER. He's missed the playoffs the last couple of years, as he gets older an further out of his prime, but made it each and every year before that, and his teams are usually a threat in the playoffs, because of HIM. He has been a lethal scorer dropping 20+ every year of his career, and has the 25th most points EVER, but we still have people debating if this man should be in the HOF, when he's undoubtedly one of the NBA greats.
Regardless if you criticize Melo, which I do too, if you seriously just sit back and look at the bigger picture, that this man has been carrying teams for well over a decade and has succeeded for most of it, then you can see how amazing he really is.
All in all, Happy 33rd to the man who inspired me to pick up a basketball, and has been a true role model, and class act. Regardless if he's back in NY next year, or somewhere else, all I'm hoping for him is to get that ring. 🙏🏽
