If you thought my first Carmelo Anthony vid was some sort of super early April Fool’s Day prank, think again, because this is how it’s going to be from now on. Back-to-back 20-point games for him lead me to question whether he’s really as washed as I thought he was, but for now, he’s absolutely fair game for my channel. I might forget to do him occasionally, like tonight I just skipped over his name in the boxscore multiple times before eventually realizing what was going on. Don’t hestitate to remind me if I forget about him.
And no, I don’t know why he’s smiling in the thumbnail. Because he just hit a shot, I guess, and he cares more about hitting shots than winning games. Can’t blame him. That’s how I am too. If my team loses a pickup game (rare), but I made some buckets, I don’t even care. It’s just so much fun seeing a shot you shot go in the basket. One of life’s greatest pleasures, possibly.
The Rockets season is going downhill fairly quickly, so I would suggest a one-game experiment of letting Carmelo do whatever he wants, which is mainly jab-step midrange jumpers. It only has to be one game, just to see if the old scoring-champion Melo is still buried under that ginormous headband.
