Ranking Carmelo Anthony's Most Disappointing Seasons Ever
Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Carmelo Anthony's second full season with the New York Knicks, once so full of promise, appears to be headed down a path that's likely to end in disappointment.

According to the Knicks, Anthony's bothersome right knee had to be drained on March 14, putting his availability for upcoming games in doubt.

After leading his team to a surprising 18-5 start and playing the best basketball of his career, things have gone downhill in a hurry for Melo. But this is a guy who has struggled through more than his share of letdowns over the years, so this latest setback probably feels uncomfortably familiar to him.

It hasn't always been injuries that have prevented Anthony from making good on expectations. In fact, durability has been one of his calling cards. But personal slip-ups, professional blunders and the occasional non-basketball mistakes have combined to prevent Melo from reaching the levels he—and just about everyone else—believe are within his reach.

Looking back over Anthony's career, we'll see that this season is just the latest in a string of disappointing campaigns that have piled up at an alarming rate over the years.
