Carmelo and his improved jumper
Carmelo Anthony is by far the NBA's most complete offensive player. His scoring prowess is well-known throughout the league by players, coaches and fans alike.
His arsenal already includes aggressive drives to the rim, pull-up jumpers, and post moves that rival those of big men. However, what most people do not realize is that he is working to add a reliable three point shot. So far, he has made great strides in doing so. Since joining New York, he has increased his three point percentage from 33 percent to 42 percent. His continued improvement in this area will make him deadly from anywhere on the floor.
Not only has he improved his three point shot, but he's also improved his free throw shooting and his shooting overall. He has increased his free throw percentage from 82 percent to 87 percent and his field goal percentage from 45 percent to 46 percent since becoming a Knickerbocker. As he becomes a more efficient offensive player, he will dominate opposing defenses even more. Plus, once he learns Coach D'Antoni's speed-ball offense, he should easily average 30 points per game.
