That's two players involved in the Carmelo Anthony trade that have been on the wrong end of dunk-of-the-year contenders.

Chris Palmer

2014 High Games: Melo 46, Kobe 44, Davis 43, Klay 41, LeBron 41, Rudy 40, Kobe 39, Blake 39, Westbrook 38

Frank Isola

I like Melo as a person and a player so I desperately want to believe he's not buying into that "cultural icon taste maker" friggin nonsense

Frank Isola

I hope when Melo was told by some guy that he can be a "cultural icon taste maker" he started laughing & said "get the (bleep) out of here"

Frank Isola

In ESPN Mag story on Carmelo someone described as a "branding expert" asks Carmelo if he wants "to be a cultural icon, a taste maker." OMG

Adi Joseph

You said Bulls but meant Hawks I think. RT @Sean Highkin: Melo realllllly should have come to the Bulls.

Sean Highkin

Lost in all the LeBron/Cavs stuff: Melo realllllly should have come to the Bulls.

Carmelo Anthony wants a "bulletproof legacy." Win with the #Knicks and he will have that: newsday.com/sports/columni… #nba

After beating #Sixers last night, #Knicks Carmelo Anthony talks Return of Calderon & Covington's late 3's VIDEO: msg.com/teams/knicks.h…

Knicks Insider: Best way for Melo to create a "bulletproof legacy" is to win a title in NY: newsday.com/sports/columni… #Knicks #NBA

Ian Begley

Carmelo believes Calderon's 'high IQ' will help the #Knicks, who've been "missing" high IQ at point guard. More here: m.espn.go.com/general/blogs/…

Chris Herring

According to Basketball-Reference, Carmelo's played 62% of his minutes at small forward; 38% at PF. Last yr, he played 62% at PF, 38% at SF.

Chris Herring

About a fifth of way thru the yr, Melo's shooting 47.5% from field & 42.6% from three. Former is his best % in 8 yrs; latter is career-best.

Ian Begley

Carmelo believes Calderon's 'high IQ' will help the #Knicks, who've been "lacking" high IQ at point guard. More here: m.espn.go.com/general/blogs/…

Ian Begley

Carmelo on Jose Calderon: "His IQ out there on the court I think is very high. That’s something that, at that position, we’ve been missing."

Chris Herring

Melo, on playing with a high-IQ point guard: "I love it. I love it. Ain't nothing like playing with a high-level PG."

Steve Popper

Knicks letting Sixers get close. If anyone but Carmelo shoots here Phil is going to leave his cart in aisle 6 and have to take over.

Frank Madden

I think Delfino blocked me after I referred to him as a chalk outline after a particularly bad game vs. Carmelo. I REGRET NOTHING CARLOS.

Alan Hahn

Like @Wally Szcerzbiak golfing with me. RT @Millien4life: Melo looks like the college guy playing in a bad pickup game right now @Alan Hahn

Steve Popper

One thing that is going to hurt Sixers chance of making a game of this - besides being bad is that Melo looks like he could score 100.

Keith Pompey

Stoudermire is in full #BEASTMODE against Sixers, 4-4 shooting for 8 pts. But Melo's 3 gives #Knicks a 40-29 lead with 5:11 left in half

Keith Pompey

This is too easy for the #Knicks, who lead 21-10 with 2:08 left in 1st quarter. They are shooting 56 percent from the field. Melo has 9 pts

Derek Bodner

Calderon, Shumpert, Carmelo, Quincy Acy, and Samuel Dalembert for the #knicks.

Tom Moore

Mbah a Moute will start out on Carmelo. Brown called MaM 'our wise veteran' beforehand. #Sixers

Chris Herring

LOL. Philly got the deficit down to 2, with 33 seconds left, and all the starters had to come back. Melo borrowed Toure Murry's headband.

Adam Zagoria

Knicks will start Calderon, Shumpert, Melo, Acy & Dalembert in the Jahlil Okafor Sweepstakes Game against the winless Sixers

Ian Begley

Fisher says Calderon, Shumpert, Carmelo, Acy and Dalembert will start tonight. Not clear if Pablo or Larkin will backup Calderon. #Knicks

Steve Popper

Iman, Melo, Quincy and Sam get the wheel of starter call tonight for the Knicks.

Jonah Ballow

Fisher will start Calderon, Shump, Melo, Acy, Dalembert. #Knicks

Chris Herring

Knicks' starting five is Calderon, Shumpert, Melo, Acy and Dalembert.

Keith Pompey

#76ers vs. #Knicks at glance. With no answer for @Carmelo Anthony, this could get ugly for the visiting team. philly.com/philly/blogs/s… #NBA

Joe Cowley

And this lineup still beats the Knicks .... YOU HEAR THAT, MELO??

Ryan Wolstat

Casey said Jabari Parker reminds him a lot of Carmelo Anthony. “He’s a big, power 3, so to speak."

Charles F. Gardner

Casey on Jabari: "He does a great job of body-hunting, getting into your body and drawing contact. He reminds me of a young Carmelo."

Charles F. Gardner

Raptors coach Dwane Casey called Jabari Parker "a Carmelo Anthony type at the 4 position. He's a power 3, so to speak."

Great look at Carmelo's approach to his legacy here from @ESPNMag. An excerpt & link here: es.pn/11ySrVy

Mike Trudell

Of course, Kobe hasn't been efficient this year w/his FG%. He and No. 5 overall scorer James Harden (tied w/Melo) are both at 38.6%.

Mike Trudell

NBA scoring leaders: 1) Kobe (27.5); 2) LeBron James (25.9) 3) Anthony Davis (25.5) 4) Steph Curry (24.8); 5) Carmelo Anthony (23.8)

Adam Zagoria

Syracuse has a manager in the back looking to get Melo and Tyler Ennis suited up for the stretch run.

Adam Zagoria

Meantime, Syracuse has 22 points w/ 44 secs left in the first half and is down 14 to Cal at MSG. They may need Melo in the 2nd half.

Chris Herring

In all seriousness, Fisher's sub patterns w Melo have probably been the best thing abt his coaching so far. He's done well with that.

Chris Herring

Defense. RT @Matt Moore: Knicks have had 8 gms go into the last 5 mins w/ 5-point diff or less. Melo is shooting 69%, but Knicks are 2-6.

Marc Berman

Honest Melo unhappy with current image. Feels "misunderstood'' and wants to be known as "truly great.'' nyp.st/1BReRCg
