Carmelo Anthony has had a tough few years with the New York Knicks, which has made many miss the old memories of young Melo when he was ballin' with the Denver Nuggets.

Melo's former Nuggets teammate and current Houston Rockets big man, Nene, was asked about Melo recently, and he had some interesting things to say.
Tell me a little bit about Carmelo Anthony, one of the best scorers I’ve ever seen.

Nene: “Carmelo man… He’s a guy who could’ve been the best player in the League—the way he uses his body, the accuracy on his shots, the variation of dribbles and shots that he has, and his low-post fundamentals…”

He’s insane in the post. His jab step is the best in the League.

Nene: “Yeah he is simply the best down there, but he’s just too selfish. He can’t make his teammates better. If he did that, he could’ve been the best in the League. Oh, and if he played defense… Because he knows how to guard people, I played with him for 8 years, so I know.”
Here's the video of Nene talking about Melo (note: the entire video is in Portuguese, so the above is translated):


Do you agree with Nene? Let us know.

In the meantime, enjoy these old videos of Melo when he was with the Nuggets:
