Carmelo Anthony '12
Written by 22rshirk
Bought for: 500,000
Intro: Hey, I don’t normally do reviews. But I’ve wanted to do one for Melo for a long time. I bought him when he first came out. And he’s one of my favorite players. I played most of my games with him on triple threat. But I did play some unlimited.
HOF shooting badges (limitless, catch and shoot, deep range and midrange deadeye). He can shoot the lights out. He’s complete cheese. You can pull up from half court and green it. If he’s open it’s an automatic green bean.
Fast release: one of the faster releases in 2k. It’s not base 11 but it’s definitely a top 5 release. If you’re wide open it’s virtually impossible to contest.
Speed: he is as fast as they come in 2k. You can say he’s basically grant hill with shooting badges. He flys up and down the court with ease. I blow by most of the opponents I play.
- height: he’s a 6’8 small forward. Most of the time people aren’t going to contest you. And you’re going to finish a lot (he has HOF posterizer). He also can contest players like Hedo, and AK47.
- a little bit of stretch but defense: I’m not sure if he has gold defensive stopper or not. He’s not really a lock down. He has pretty average defensive stats.
**Recommended Strategy: iso, pnr ball handler, catch and shoot, post up, pick and fade
Other Comments: he’s a really good player. He’s definitely the best player on my myteam. I goto him first for scoring. So it says he’s 240lb but I’m game he looks and feels a lot lighter. I don’t know if it’s because he’s tall. He should like a lebron build but he’s not. But that’s more of a good thing because he’s really fast.
Use if: you want a player who can stretch the floor, and can be your primary scorer.
Don't use if: you need a defensive stopper
Bottom Line: his price is pretty high. I think it’s worth it. But you could buy players like James harden who are almost identical.
