Carmelo Anthony Botches Wide-Open Dunk After Whistle, Goes Down Hard

Carmelo Anthony is a scorer. He's not a high-flyer.

After a first-quarter whistle during the New York Knicks' bout with the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, the All-Star forward tried to hammer in a one-handed jam.

It didn't go well.

Melo got rim-stuffed, then hit the deck, but he was fine and laughed it off.
