Carmelo Anthony Totally Misses Easy Slam Dunk (GIF)


The New York Knicks are hoping that they can turn things around and get back to a position that puts them in the Eastern Conference playoffs and deep in the Eastern Conference playoffs. One way to totally not get to that point is to have your superstar player forget how to dunk the ball from right underneath the basket.

Carmelo Anthony may be the leader of the Knicks but they best look to someone else for their dunking advice. Melo completely whiffed on an easy dunk tonight against the Brooklyn Nets.

Now, this isn’t something that Melo is likely going to be making a habit of, as he usually manages to get the ball into the basket. And to his credit there was a lot of defense in the paint when he missed, but he proved tonight that even the best of us can look foolish in the easiest of scenarios. Luckily for Anthony and the Knicks, the missed dunk was immediately rebounded by Melo who scored to make up for things.

Still, we joke that someone needs to teach the Knicks how to play basketball, but maybe someone really does.
