There’s no doubt, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony had a night to remember on Friday evening when he went for 62-points in Madison Square.

It’s the highest point total we’ve seen scored in the NBA this season and a relatively lofty number in general. It’s not often somebody puts up 60-plus points in regulation.

But of course, there’s always a hater in the crowd and this time it’s former NBA player Rick Fox, who dusted Anthony’s performance off by suggesting he saw former teammate Kobe Bryant put up 62 in three quarters of action before.

I saw @kobebryant get 62 in 3 quarters

I’m not really sure if Fox was attempting to throw shade at Carmelo or simply trying to give Bryant praise, but it didn’t come off as overly sincere.

Fans weren’t exactly thrilled with the comment either, suggesting they ‘saw Doug Christie punch Fox in the jaw’ but the calm and cool Fox played it off, citing his NBA Championship rings.

@NuthnButAGThing @kobebryant you also saw 3 rings #Iwontforgetthat

    A player has to want the limelight and pressure of LA. Carmelo is of a stature that if he wants to play for you, you probably should accept him.

    But,
    He’s probably the league’s best #2 option, and isn’t the leader the Lakers need for the next era.

    Wait for: Love in 2015, and Durant in 2016.
