NEW YORK — Overrated ball hog.

This is Carmelo Anthony. He doesn’t seem to be a bad guy. He is not the devil. He’s probably going to shoot the Knicks past the Celtics in the first round of these NBA playoffs.

But he’s not going to be an NBA champion. He’s not one of the all-time greats. He appears to be incapable of doing anything to help his team unless he has the ball in his hands.

Who are the best NBA players who never passed the basketball? Larry Bird and Magic Johnson made teammates better with their passing skills. LeBron James is a great passer. Even Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant gave it up once in a while. Wilt Chamberlain — who averaged 50 points a game in a season — managed to lead the league in a.ssists when he decided he’d done everything else. Oscar Robertson averaged a triple-double over a full season. Tiny Archibald led the league in scoring and a.ssists in the same season.


Not Melo. He plays like an only child. He cannot share the ball. He knows he’s better than all of his teammates and he plays like a man intent on doing it all by himself. He either has the basketball, or he’s demanding the basketball. The Knicks’ offense is Melo pounding, and four guys standing around watching.

Melo’s 36-point, one-assist performance in Saturday’s 85-78 Game 1 tractor-pull/victory over the Celtics was a perfect demonstration of Anthony’s amazing skills and his eternal limitations. He burst from the gate, draining his first four shots. Then he missed 15 of 20 shots. Then he came back, making four of his last five. He hoisted 29 shots and didn’t pass for a basket until he fired a bullet to Kenyon Martin in the final minute of play.

This is one of the reasons Anthony’s teams have lost in the first round of the playoffs in eight of the nine times he has been in the postseason. Anthony led the NBA in scoring average this season with 28.7 points per game, while averaging a career-low 2.6 a.ssists. Saturday he had one a.ssist for every 29 shots and missed 16 shots.

In many ways, this makes him the perfect face of the 2012-13 Knicks. There is a sense of desperation about this New York basketball team. Today’s Knicks have a lot of veterans and played well at the end of this regular season. It was the Knicks’ best regular season in a decade and a half. The Knicks play in a fabled arena and have fans who know basketball and love the game. But the Knicks haven’t won a playoff series since 2000.

They know they should beat the Celtics — who have lost (including Saturday) 7 of 10 and 12 of their last 18 games.

Melo’s one-on-one style infects his teammates and it makes these Knicks the antithesis of the 1970s Knicks teams, which featured moving without the ball, pick-and-rolls, backdoor cuts, and hitting the open man. It’s hard to imagine Anthony blending with Bill Bradley, Dave DeBusschere, and Willis Reed. The 1970s Knicks were the Supremes. Today’s Knicks are Diana Ross and the Supremes. image

And Melo is the Supreme Diva.

The Celtics bumped him out of his rhythm after his early flurry in Game 1, but coach Doc Rivers was taking no bows for superior defense on Anthony.

“He made three shots that only him, and Paul [Pierce], maybe you could name 10 guys who could make those shots,’’ Rivers said Sunday at the Celtics’ swank hotel in New York. (The Celtics are sharing hotel space with the Chicago Bulls, who were spanked by the Nets Saturday night.)

“He’ll probably continue to make those. The ones we need to take away are the two threes he got on offensive rebounds. He got another one off a loose ball when they swung it out to him. Those are the ones that hurt. He had one in the fourth when Jeff [Green] loaded to the ball and he lost sight of Carmelo and Carmelo got the little elbow shot. You can see the shots that he got that you don’t want him to have, and you can see the shots that he made where you tip your hat to him and say, ‘That’s why you’re Carmelo Anthony.’ ’’

Everybody in New York tips their cap to Melo. For a guy who’s never won anything in the pros — playing for a franchise that hasn’t won a championship since 1973 — Anthony is wildly popular.( image he mad) He’s cooperative with the media and has demonstrated proper respect toward former Knicks great Bernard King — the best player on the Knicks team that pushed Larry Bird’s championship Celtics to seven games in a conference semifinal series in 1984.

“Boston knows Melo and knows he is not going anywhere,’’ Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. “They are going to be making it as tough as possible for him to score the ball. When we got into a tough stretch, he made the plays we needed him to make. That’s what the great ones do.”

The true greats win championships. The overrated ball hogs do not.

Man.. T-Mac averaged like 30, 6 and 6 for a 20 win team and balled out int he playoffs and always lost in the 1st round anyway..it's team game..

Stats don't tell the whole story.. AI averaged 6-8 a.ssists a game BECAUSE he had the ball all the time... Stop hatin' on Melo... the dude is just mad cuz Boston is gettin eliminated in the 1st round

He is not a guard...he also does not run the court as often as a Kobe or Lebron. They fail to mention the fact he is a great rebounder.

I think it still too early to say he wont win a ring ever. On this Knick roster will he win a ring? No, but that doesnt mean he couldnt leave and win one like Ray and KG did on the Celtics. As the main guy he wont win a ring.

did this guy even watch the game?

Melo had at least 6-7 passes to open team mates who missed the corresponding open jump shot

they hit half that and he has 4-5 a.ssists

he's our fu*king POWER FORWARD, and he ain't Lebron.

do i wish he was a walking triple double like LBJ? of course, but it is what it is

basketball is a team sport where the best team wins the chip

when Melo is on the best team, he'll get it. until then, he's Karl Malone

Melo has flaws and hi a ball hog but everybody seems to be carried away or they jut have short term memories.How long did it take dirk to win a championship? how long did it take pierce,kg, Allen to win a championship? It took Lebron about 9 years to finally win one, although it took wade less than 4 years to get his first ring.Paul still doesnt have one yet, it took a dominant Shaq 6-7 to get one(not sure about the time frame).so why is everybody picking on melo all of a sudden?

because he's an easy target that doesn't f!ght back in the media

he just handles his business on the court

and fu*k it, while i'm on it, i listened to the PTI, Around the Horn, NBA Bruce Bowen and First Take podcast today and not ONE of them mentioned how good our D was in the second half

all they did was say Boston won't play that bad again and has a good chance

NY is just hated, its Knicks Lost Forever, fu*k em all and throw up your

how long did it take pierce to win one.pierce would still be ringless if he didnt invite Allen and KG. its like some of us sportsfan loves to pick on other athletes that dont play for our favorite team.Matter of fact how long did it take the entire boston franchise to get one before the big three teamed up.
Our two best players died or the dynasty would have continued into the 90s. Also, Pierce never got to play with allen iverson, n*gga had a rookie billups for half a season and melo got him when he was an mvp candidate, marcus camby grabbing 12 boards a game, a former #1 pick in martin, an explosive bench scorer in jr smith, a great down low scorer in nene and a super energetic defensive presence in young birdman in his prime, and now he has a defensive player of the year. He played nothing but talent his whole career. When you gave pierce a DPOY and some talent he did what he was supposed to do and win a championship.
