There may be MVP chants in the air, and they may be deserved, but is Carmelo Anthony having the best season of his career?

No matter the sport, a player’s best season and MVP season don’t necessarily coincide. A lot of the time there’s just someone else having a better year.

Or, a player could win the MVP based not on his statistical play, but the impact he had on his team—taking it to the next level or deep into the postseason, for example.

In 2012-13, Anthony is exhibiting all the MVP traits. He’s got the New York Knicks exceeding expectations on the back of a head-turning stat line that is one of the best in the NBA right now.

But is this year shaping up to be his greatest regular-season performance yet?

Surprisingly, it was impossible to find a rundown of Anthony’s best seasons on the Internet. No articles, posts or forum topics.

It’s about time for a little retrospective.
