Melo for MVP?

The New York Knicks are playing amazing right now and star Carmelo Anthony is leading the way.

The New York Knicks have been amazing and currently are first in the Eastern Conference. Carmelo Anthony has come into the season on fire and has really been playing at a high energy level for his team.

The Knicks’ resurgence also has a lot to do with the brilliance of Coach Mike Woodson and his decision to tweak the offense. It is a system that is quick and free flowing, and it requires an intense amount of ball movement. He has also taken it upon himself to hold players accountable for their play on the defensive side of the ball.

Anthony has embraced the defensive side with more energy than in years past and it has been contagious to other players. He has also really been scoring more efficiently than ever before and the numbers show it.

Points Per Game

He is averaging about 28 ppg so far this season, which is up by almost five points from last year. He has limited his outside shots and has really been getting his buckets in the paint. Gone are the days that Anthony is solely relying on long jump shots. He has always had one of the best post games in the league but now he has taken it to the next level.

Field Goal Percentage

Anthony has showed significant improvement in this category from last year, proving that he has taken his offense closer to the basket to become more efficient. He is shooting 47 percent from the field, up from 43 percent last year. He is also shooting a blazing 45 percent from the three-point line; he only managed to shoot 33 percent from behind the arc last season.

Carmelo Anthony is playing well because he isn’t forcing the issue; he isn’t trying to be the “man”. He is playing within the Knicks’ offensive system, getting everyone involved. Anthony is cutting down on fade-a-ways and thriving in the post. He is proving to be more than a scorer; he is proving to be a legit MVP candidate.
