Chris Broussard says Carmelo Anthony is better than 60 to 70 percent of the NBA
NBA analyst Chris Broussard believes that Carmelo Anthony is still better than most of the players in the league today despite the fact that he has yet to sign with any team this summer.
Broussard said on Fox Sports Radio that Anthony is still more skilled than 60-70 percent of the players in the NBA. He even added that the 35-year-old forward can still play a significant role. However, he also pointed out that he feels bad for the former All-Star because it appears that teams are likely finding him as a bad fit to their current roster.
“There is no question he is good enough to play in the NBA,” Broussard said of Anthony. “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.”
Anthony has not played in the NBA since his 10 game stint with the Houston Rockets early in the 2018-19 NBA season. The 10-time All-Star admitted to Stephen A. Smith of ESPN that he doubted himself earlier this year, but he is now confident that he can still compete at a high level if given another chance.
The Brooklyn native has played 16 seasons in the league. Aside from the Rockets, he also had stints with the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, and the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has career averages of 24.0 points on top of 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
