Carmelo Anthony named to second team All-NBA

It looks like Carmelo anthony is going to need some more room in his trophy case, after the NBA announced on Thursday that the Knicks All-Star forward was selected to the second team All-NBA.

Anthony is coming off of his best professional season in which he averaged 28.7 points, 7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game, leading the Knicks to 54 wins and the eastern conference’s second best record in the process.  Carmelo also captured the first scoring title of his career, beating out the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant in the final days of the season to secure the the crown.

The NBA released the results on Thursday, with Anthony receiving the fifth most votes of any player (397) and 24 first-place votes, but Melo was ultimately relegated to the second team after finishing behind LeBron James and Kevin Durant, the two forwards on the first team.
