After being passed up on in favor of Danilo Gallinari during the 2008 draft, this versatile wing still somehow managed to find himself under the bright Broadway lights. Proof that he was destined to don the Knicks uniform.
This freakishly athletic forward has wallowed in Don Nelson's doghouse for the past two years. Now that he's free to run rampant in Mike D'Antoni's fast paced system, there's nowhere to go, but up.
Anthony is a blossoming young talent with near unlimited potential. Having all the tools to excel in New York, he will undoubtedly play a major role in the Knicks bid for a playoff berth.
Able to guard nearly any position on the floor, he will become a nightmare for opposing teams. His 7'3" wingspan, coupled with his propensity for swatting away shots, will parlay into plenty of minutes as Mike D'Antoni leans on him for his defensive prowess.
No slouch on offense, PG Raymond Felton must be licking his chops in anticipation of lobbing alley-oops to him. With a standing reach of 9'1" and a 35" vertical—a combination rarely, if ever, heard of—his athleticism is off the charts. He may very well fill the role Shawn Marion enjoyed while playing under D'Antoni—a period in which Marion was selected to four All-Star teams.
With a developing mid-range jumper, a soft touch around the rim and strong ball handling skills, his dazzling offensive repertoire will only soon begin to flourish. Having played under a similar system while with the Warriors, his game should quickly adapt to the "seven seconds or less" mentality.
Mark my words, he is a budding superstar in the making.
