Carmelo Anthony is not happy with his Slam Online top 50 rating

Published Add your comment

Carmelo Anthony has long been considered one of the NBA's modern-day greats. 

The New York Knicks forward has a somewhat underwhelming franchise career - reaching the conference finals once during his time with the Denver Nuggets - but his personal stats can't be contested. 

Melo has averaged 24.9 points per game throughout his career, shooting over 40 percent from the field, winning the scoring championship in 2013 and being selected to the All-Star game nine times. 

However, it seems Slam magazine no longer consider him a top ten player after they rated the Brooklyn native at 15 in their top 50 countdown. 

The Knicks superstar was not happy with the position and went out of his way to show his feelings by commenting on their Instagram post.

He said: "@slamonline all credibility lost in my [eyes]."

The case can certainly be made for Melo having such a low ranking, and he has only fallen places since Slam did their top 50 in 2015.

The number seven reached as high as fourth in 2013 but has plummeted since then, coming seventh in 2014.

There's only one way for Melo to prove Slam wrong, and that is by leading the Knicks back to the playoffs. He has never had such a strong supporting cast in the Big Apple.
