Allen Iverson barely broke a sweat and he thanked Carmelo Anthony for that.

"I think that might be the easiest game I ever played in my career. I was out there watching," Iverson hollered across the locker room after Anthony scored a career-high 49 points to lead the Denver Nuggets past the Washington Wizards 111-100 Friday night.

How many points were they up when they were force feeding the ball to Melo so he could aim for 50? Did you see the look on his face when Jamison and Blatche were swarming him so he couldn't get the ball?

melo had 26 middle of the second quarter. 29 at half... he came out firing and was dead on.
19/25 FG, 3/3 3pt, 8/8FT

I'm happy for him, really, but I'm talking about in the final minutes when they were up like 12-15 points and they kept trying to get him the ball so he could get 50. And the crowd was booing the Wizards cause they were swarming him so he couldn't get a touch even. Melo was on fire and earned his points but I just can't stand when the game is over and players are trying to go for stats.

He's on my fantasy team.

He's a great scorer, but he doesn't do anythign else particularly well on the stat sheet.

gets boards and a couple assists and 3pointers made. about as much as dirk.
also depends on what categories you use in your league.

I really don't understand the hate for Carmelo around here. The guy can flat out ball.
