The 30-year-old — who signed a two-year, $16 million deal over the summer — possesses an uncanny post game for a 6-5 shooting guard, and his leadership has propelled the Knicks to a surprise .500 record as the All-Star break approaches. “Just to have him back over here with me again is like old time’s sake,” Anthony, who spent 1 ½ seasons with Afflalo in Denver, told USA TODAY Sports. “And it’s different times, different player than he was back then. He is a guy, who on any given night, I feel comfortable with throwing him the ball and putting him in position to make shots or make big shots and make plays.”
As many players reach their age-30 season, decline becomes evident. Afflalo claims to be the exception. “I think I’m only going to get better as I get older because of my style of play,” he said. “I like to play a more post game, spot-up threes, coming off screens. These are things that as long as you’re in good condition – I’m not really relying on heavy speed or heavy athleticism – I’m more relying on my footwork and skill and my body. So I feel as I get older with more experience, I’m just going to get better with age.”
