Carmelo Anthony’s road to the forefront of the NBA has been filled with ups and downs, trade rumors, drama and everything else you can possibly imagine. Yet, through all the challenges that the New York Knicks forward has had to face, he continues to get better year in and year out. Today, Melo officially won his first scoring title, an accomplishment that has been a long time coming. Perhaps most fitting, in all regards, Melo has silenced the naysayers by leading the Knicks to an Atlantic Division title with a 54-28 record. What’s most impressive, is how Carmelo Anthony has become an undisputed leader both on and off the court for the Knicks this season. On the way to his nearly 29 points per game, Melo put up huge numbers this season, including 8 games with 40 points or more and a career-best matching 50 points to beat the Miami Heat just weeks ago. At just 28 years old (at least for a few more weeks), Melo’s future is looking brighter than it ever has. The scoring title might be his newest achievement but putting up serious points is is something he’s been doing for 12 seasons now. These are The Sneakers Worn for Carmelo Anthony’s 10 Highest Scoring Games.
