Carmelo Anthony: ‘I Need Some Help’

The Denver Nuggets are in the midst of a Playoff meltdown, and their leader tells the assembled press that he can’t win the series against Utah alone: “Nuggets acting coach Adrian Dantley was critical of Anthony’s nine turnovers after the game – - ‘He’s just got to read the defense a lot better,’ Dantley said – - but almost all the questions in Anthony’s direction were about trying unsuccessfully to carry his team. ‘I’m trying to do everything I can in my power to beat the Jazz,’ Anthony said, ‘but at the end of day, I need some help. I’m not sitting here pointing fingers or nothing, but as a unit we’ve got to do this together. I can’t do it by myself.’ The Nuggets have gotten so little out of Martin, Nene, Smith, Andersen and Ty Lawson in this series that they find themselves one game away from elimination. Williams had as many assists (13) in Sunday’s game as the Nuggets did as an entire team. ‘Their confidence is sky high right now,’ Anthony said of the Jazz, ‘so we’ve got to try to do everything in our power to try to take that away from them.”’

    I’m surprised how far the Nuggets have sunk this season. I thought for sure this would be easy for them.

    Bye, bye Denver!

  • Chazz Michael Michaels

    Don’t count em’ out! George Karl needs to come back, Adrian Dantley is a fool!

  • http://slamonline.com Matt Lawyue

    Underlies the massive significance of George Karl..

  • The Philosopher

    He just threw his entire team under the bus. They are not going to win.

  • http://minusthebars.blogspot.com Come to New York, Carmelo!

    I never would have believed that Denver would be on the verge of losing a first round playoff series a year after almost making it to the Finals. Well, I doubt very seriously if any help is headed Denver’s way. Carmelo would be better off “helping” himself and leaving Denver and those ugly jerseys, next year.

    Carmelo to NY!

  • The Philosopher

    This player is no leader. Period. A leader is Dwyane Wade. The King. Kobe, even. Anthony is sounding more and more like Tracy McGrady, another player who was… anyways……..

  • wtf

    hes right. No one else stepped up last night. He and Ty Lawson seemed to be the only ones interested in winning. Melo would not have had so many TOs if he had some one to rely on. He was the only offensive production. AD has know idea what he is doing

  • wtf

    how can u say Melo is no leader, did you watch that game last night. He was the only person even trying to lead the team and win. If he didnt play they would have lost but 40

  • kev

    wow way to lead carmelo! 9 turnovers and you blame your team. Can we finally end to melo- lebron comparisons? This team is full of talent!!!! Its on melo as the best player to make it work and make his team better.

  • wtf

    how can you say melo is no leader, did you watch the game last night. He was the only player trying to lead the team and win. He gave the most effort.

  • wtf

    the 9 turnovers seem more important than what they actualy were

  • cramzy

    Those 9 turnovers come from him having the ball in his hands for the whole game. Bro was going hard last night. Wish he hadn’t said this publicly but it’s true! He seemed like the only one that wanted it last night.

  • kev

    A leader doesn’t go out after the game and blame the team for the loss. You win and lose as a team! keep your issues in the locker room. If you throw guy’s under the bus in the media it ruins team chemistry.

  • J-Ro

    Its funny how everyone says he’s not a leader bcuz he did this plubicly. And D.Wade is a leader for doing this all year? And don’t forget when Kobe did the same crap a couple years ago when he wanted out of L.A.

  • funkdoc

    another surprise in the playoffs. This shows again how close the west is. Normally people are shocked when a seven seed is up 3-1 against the second seed, but SA and Dallas are actually so close if you look at their record. The same here with Denver and Utah. Each team has a chance of winning, even Oklahoma. That being said, I lost a lot of respect for Denver. They seem to think they’ll go to the finals easily. And they seem to be arrogant because they went to the WCF last year. Dudes, that’s not even the finals! I think Utah is this year’s Denver.

  • Logues

    chris webber made a great point last night, the nuggets have more talent but the jazz play so good as a team and get easy baskets and the nuggs its all one on one

  • wtf

    he didnt blame the team for the lost. he simply said he needs some help. its true because nobody helped him last night. he was the only person knokin down shots and grabbin boards. plus he got hit with some shaky offense fouls that went to the TOs. ive notice the jazz do a lot of flopping

  • T-Money

    Melo is not a leader. This is not new. His game is not transcendent, he doesn’t elevate the level of play of his teammates. He’s not vocal and he has never been the one to bark orders on the defensive end. The scoring is EXTRA nice but happens in a vacuum. I’m not even talking about the 9 turnovers, how can you have the ball in your hands for 44 mins and finish with one assist? Getting beat by a better team like last year is one thing. Getting beat by a lesser team because of a lack of direction and cohesiveness is a direct reflexion of his leadership qualities. Heck, the fact that it isnt even clear who the real leader of this team says it all.

  • riggs

    the philosopher consistently proving his username is ironic since day 01…

  • T-Money

    or better yet, reflection.

  • Rikson

    Man, how desperate in defending Melo do you have to be, to compare the Nuggets to the Heat supporting-cast wise…. It wont get any better!

  • http://slamonline.com CB 34

    @wtf: The jazz weren’t flopping. They were playing good d. Matthews can’t contain Melo alone but he’s done a superb job banging and irritating him. It works too. Since game 2, he’s tricked Melo into committing stupid fouls and throwing the ball away consistently. Yeah he needs help but he’s gotta give up the ball too. Dude holds the ball for 5 seconds then tries to attack by himself. If JR steps up they’ll be fine.

  • The Philosopher

    And, this is the same player who played dead on the court just recently.

  • Sovainmag.com

    I do believe Melo needs help, and the absence of George Karl has a lot to do with the psyche of the team. Last year, they had a chip on their shoulder and they were hungry, this year is a different scenario. It shows that they don’t do well under pressure and can’t face adversary.

  • The Philosopher

    @riggs: You also respect my insight. And I appreciate it wholeheartedly. But with all due respect, it doesn’t matter what you think about my username. You must like it, you keep talking about it, but it doesn’t matter. You must still be agitated with me from when I humiliated you about Carmelo “breaking his neck” on Durant’s bony chest. I guess I still would be mad too if I got clowned like that on the computer.

  • BostonBaller

    This series and others in the West does NOT show how close the West is, it exposes some teams and their preparation. 9 TO’s is a lot but that happens when you have the ball in your hands 90% of the time. Where was Mr. Big Shot? (I love Billups) 4 assists, 2 TO’s. There wasn’t much help from the PG position. He did point fingers in a way but don’t blame the coach just b/c you like Karl. (as do I)

  • The Philosopher

    @riggs: And this isn’t about me, my username, or you, for that matter, unless you’re Carmelo. But I don’t think you are. So, for you to go all the way to to left field, or what have you, I MUST be on your mind. And it doesn’t matter why I’m on your mind, but I am. You should get over me. But more importantly, you should have BEEN gotten over yourself.

  • http://www.mybleedingfingertips.blogspot.com/ Myles Brown

    I love it when people talk about leadership as though they know what they’re talking about. Some of you couldn’t even lead Tiger Woods to a whorehouse.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Yeah, this shouldn’t surprise anyone. Not the meltdown, not Melo’s way of handling it, not Chauncey’s insistence on taking dumb shots while being guarded by the best point guard in the league.
    The Nuggets are who I thought they were.
    They are the same team that melted down in the WCF last year, after playing some weak teams to make it there.
    They are the same group of knuckleheads that everybody blamed Iverson for failing to lead back in the day. Oh, scratch that, because at least this team has a healthy Nene.
    I will admit that I was wrong about one thing. I thought George Karl wasn’t getting enough out of his talent, maybe he was doing the best he could all the time.

  • jin35

    TY needs to start the game and flop on DWill (much like CJ/MATTHEWS due on Melo the whole game) Billups eoming off the bench gives them more control with the second unit, and makes Billups well rested for the fourth.

  • NuggetsKing

    Okay for those of you people who are saying that Carmelo Anthony isn’t a leader you don’t know anything about the Denver Nuggets…..Carmelo is the most UNDERRATED player in the NBA…..You can’t sit here and say he isn’t real good when he was the LEADING scorer in the OLYMPICS…..C’mon yall need to look at sum stats cuz Carmelo has scored above 30 this whole series….We need JR Smith to step up and make smart decisions and stop being so damn fast to shoot….We need Billups to be a damn point guard….We need Nene to act like a damn big man and bust that rookies ass…..We need to get the ball to Affalo more let him hit that corner 3….K Mart needs to realize these are playoffs and if hes not ready to play put Petro in he wants some minutes…..And last THE DAMN REFS need to get the let the damn teams play….I swear it’s like I’m watching a Junior Varsity game with all the fouls and turnovers they’ve given Denver…..So if you don’t watch Denver you can’t really say much about the team because you can probably only name 3 people on the team…

  • barnabusb

    It’s funny how franchises just seem to have a certain stigma, no matter who is on the roster. Denver is always just full of knuckleheads who can’t get it done when it counts. Their names this time just happen to be Billups, Anthony, Nene, Andersen, Martin, etc.

  • http://www.sovainmag.com Sovainmag.com

    The philosopher, focus on the mattter at hand. Forget cyber thugs. Melo does need a consistent low post threat, and a decent 2 guard. JR Smith is a good 6th man, but who’s gonna help melo. Its the absence of the coach that has the stagnant nuggets on the brink of elimatation.

  • LA Huey

    Melo’s going hard. He could have handled it better than calling out his teammates in the press but he can only do so much on the court. His production has been far above that of the rest of the team. Dantley’s being out-coached and the team as a whole is getting out-worked…basically, Sloan and Deron run this ish.

  • UnRel

    nuggets will always find a way to shoot themselves in the foot.. that’s the bottom line..

  • WeCoupDeLa

    WHY HAS CHAUNCY BILLUPS NAME ONLY BEEN MENTIONED TWICE IN THIS THREAD?

    Why didn’t Chuck, Kenny or CWebb call him out last night? Melo had to say that because if not nobody would have the balls to point out that “mr. Big shot” has come up smaller than Asian tits in all of the nuggets big games the past two years…

    Lakers last year? Where was he for the final two games? Where was he last night? 14 points and 4 assists? It was a great story for the media to blame AI for not being a leader when they traded him for billups and the nuggets starting winning (nobody pointed out that they now had a healthy nene by then) but what has hw done besides hit some three’s over smaller points and make a few? But let’s make Melo and Ai and JR’s retarded ass the scapegoats because they’re “thugs.”

  • WeCoupDeLa

    Excuse my grammar and diction, wrote that from an iPhone in the middle of class.

  • Dwill is the man

    I think melo is a fair weather leader. pulls the team together when the team is already close and fails to pull the team together. I can name more than 3 nuggets like the guy above asked; however, I have a question. Did you want names or prison numbers? The nuggets whine an whine and whine. shoot they are going to have to start handing out cheese. 1 assist in 44 mins melo? come on that’s terrible.

  • Sporting-Lisbon-Blazers

    Melo´s great, top 5 player but this series is about 3 things: 1-Deron Domination. 2-Denver´s lack of Defense and 3- Jerry Sloan OUTSTANDING OFFENSIVE SCHEMES. in theory and with the Jazz injuries this is a series with the Thughets winning in 7, but they droped one at home so theyre in trouble!

  • The Philosopher

    @riggs: One (yourself) shouldn’t let their ignorance predominate their intellectual capacity. But I understand that your mind is not yet fully materialized, so….

  • wtf

    WOW. a lot of Melo hate. Hes definitly a leader. Im not sure who watched him busting his ass last night trying to get the win. His team just didnt show up. The jazz have flopped this whole series. Even reggie miller said last night some of the charges called on Melo were not correct. Ppl seem to talk about his TOs but not his 39 points 12 in the 4th and his 11 boards. His team just didnt step up. He tries to get his team mates involved but he cant make them hit shots. Melo has constantly tried to get this team past the hump, look at the numbers and box scores. He just doesnt have any help. And he gets all the blame. Its not his job to get a million assist. Thats the pgs job. Chauncey is called the leader when we win. But Melo is the problem when we lose? thats crazy

  • Coney Islander

    Mello is not a leader, he would make the perfect #2. Someone who just shows up and gets BUCKETS!

    Yeah, we’re on the same page son. Yes we are.

  • http://www.youtube.com/ The Promise

    I watched the whole game last night, and honestly, he really did look like the only one interested in the game. The whole team quit on him by the end of the 3rd quarter. Even Chauncey stopped shooting. But my question to everyone on here is, Where has J.R. Smith? He scores 20 the first game, then, in the next 3 games combined, he scored 20. Thats nothing less than poor effort. They have to have his shooting off the bench when the starters cant get it going. Melo was playing 1 on 5, and I can’t really blame him for being angry, and unlike some people are saying on here, I don’t think he was necessarily throwing his teammates under the bus, He is simply trying to wake his team up. They went through last night’s game in a daze. They are a better team than Utah, especially without Okur and Kirilenko, though their play is not showing it. Looks like they have messed around and lost this series, 3-1 is nearly impossible to come back from. May be too late for his team to wake up.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    Oh so this isn’t Allen Iverson’s fault!? HAHA what happened? Where is Chauncey now? The Nuggets are waaaaaaaaay better without AI? Put AI on this Nuggets team with Nene and Birdman and a better Melo and he would have gone to the WCF last season too. The media made AI the scapegoat and sadly Denver’s success last season may have ended AI’s career. But maybe healing is starting for AI, the 30 for 30 documentary last week taught a lot of ignorant people about the real AI and what he goes through, Larry Brown is getting the call from Philly and the Nuggets are going to lose in the 1st round again. Nobody is going to blame Chauncey’s “leadership” though because he isn’t a cultural icon.

  • The Philosopher

    When Jordan was losing, he didn’t tell the world that he needed help. Bird didn’t, either. True leaders just don’t do that. Now the “throwing the team under the bus” can be construed as inaccurate.

  • http://www.youtube.com/ The Promise

    @Pardeep: Billups isn’t a cultural icon, but he is a Finals MVP, something Iverson knows nothing about.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    @The Promise: Iverson isn’t a Finals MVP, but he is a Rookie of the year, 11 time all-star, 4 time scoring champion, 3 time steals champion, 2001 NBA MVP, 2 time all-star game MVP, 7 time All-NBA, Greatest little man ever, has over 24,000 points, over 5000 assists, has a career average of 27 ppg and 6 apg. Is a first ballot hall of famer. Something Billups knows NOTHING! about.

  • Rik

    Im sure AI will somehow get blamed. The promise just got told by Pardeep. Why would you even bring up career accomplishments as an argument against AI the guy is one of the 25 greatest players ever to play.

  • jin35

    Nuggets need to switch up the lineup, bring in Ty to start (have Billups finish) and play Petro more its as simple as that.

  • http://www.youtube.com/ The Promise

    @Pardeep: I understand that, but you’re not getting what I’m saying. Look at all the guys we consider great players that never won a title: Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Shawn Kemp, Chris Webber, Mitch Richmond, Tracy Mcgrady, the list goes on and on. Chauncey has something none of those guys have. A ring, and none of those guys can tell you honestly that they don’t regret winning a championship. And, I’m not saying in any way that Iverson isn’t a great player, because he was amazing in his time, one of my all time favorite players. But what separates him and the guys I mentioned from the guys that have won a title is, when you do that, you reach the top of the basketball mountain. Sure, winning scoring titles, being an All-Star year in and year out, and being one of the top players in your sport, all that is awesome, but on the other hand, Iverson would tell you that, he would trade all that for a championship. No doubt in my mind. So before you get all up in arms, thinking I’m saying that Billups is a better player, just calm down, because I’m not. I am saying that Billups has a ring, and Iverson doesn’t, and it really puts a damper on his career. That simple.

  • http://www.youtube.com/ The Promise

    **not winning the championship** excuse my typo

  • http://djsfklrf.com Jukai

    I have no idea how people can bring Iverson into this.
    Every reasonable person (yes, even myself) knows Iverson didn’t destroy The Nuggets franchise, and it was equal parts Carmelo for not being able to coexist with Iverson, and Karl for not doing a better job of getting shots for both of them… but this doesn’t exactly vindicate Iverson in the slightest. It’s been years since he played with the Nuggets, what does this prove?

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    ^^^ Actually, it proves a lot. People were all “Iverson couldn’t do sh!t with the Nuggets, look at how far Billups has gotten them! I’d rather have Billups ANY day of the week over Iverson!”
    Anyways, the Jazz are a great team this year and they have what it takes to make it all the way. Sloan sure deserves it… Keep in mind the Jazz are missing two of their key players in Okur and Kirilenko.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @Teddy the bear: I can’t speak for them, but I just know that if I was in their shoes, I’d rather be remembered as a champion. It just comes down to whether you would rather have scoring titles or championships. Some guys would rather have the scoring titles, all star appearances, all that, and thats their buisness, but most guys would rather have a a ring, I’m sure.

  • http://www.stuffwhitepeoplelike.com Tarzan Cooper

    Chauncey has been failing since 2007. He used the last of his playoff mojo tryn to beat the heat. He has been a playoff no show since then. He takes some of the worst shots in the league, routinely waves off melo, doesnt play defense, and never gets any blame? Melo needs a post scorer like boozer. Nene is not that, hes too scared of takn shots away from others. Melo needs diff players around him.

    Honestly, after watching the game yesterday, how could anyone NOT agree with Melo. He’s gettin absolutlely NO help. Birdman, Nene, kmart, jr smith and chauncey have given them NOTHING. over rated losers is what they are. Melo is the only player that has improved. Whoever says Melo isn’t a leader can go to hell. The Jazz are a legit team. NO single player can beat them

  • MVPballer

    I think there’s a misunderstanding here somewhere. We’re not saying Melo’s a bad player, he’s just not a leader. Noones disputing the fact that he can play, ’cause he can, but he just aint no leader.

  • chintao

    I like ‘Melo, but I have to agree that he has not demonstrated much leadership ability this season. I used to bag on George Karl for being a bad coach, but it seems pretty obvious that he was holding this crew together, providing direction and encouragement. I had hoped Billups would step-up with some veteran wisdom, but he has been as absent as anyone. Carmelo is letting his frustration get the better of him, both on the court and in the press. As a leader, he just can’t let that happen. That said, I think he has made great strides as a human being over the past couple of years. I hope he can continue to develop. If so, he might just blossom into the type of leader that everyone believes he should be.

  • kg

    DWade called out for help just the other day. Lebron did it several times last season. Why when Melo does it, is it suddenly a leadership issue.
    Dude did everything he could to rally his team in Game 4… what more from a leadership standpoint could you ask of the guy.
    The team didn’t deliver on the day.
    As for the turnover issue, I think it’s covenient knit-picking against, cos Dwade makes just as many turnovers, but you don’t hear people having a go at him.

I Have No Idea How The Postgame Comments Are An Indictment On His Leadership.

  • The Philosopher

    @clapzilla: To me, it’s not just his comments that causes him to lack leadership, it’s his overall attitude toward the game (he played dead on the court) and towards his teamates.

  • http://nuggetsnation.proboards.com/index.cgi clapzilla

    Played Dead? As Soon As His Head Clipped Durant’s Hip He Cringed In Pain Then Collapsed. I Know There Are People Out There Who Claim He Wouldn’t Have Been Out There If He Actually Was Knocked Out, But He Once Scored 15 Points In A 4th Quarter After Breaking His Hand, In A Meaningless January Game Against A Bad Pacers Team. Melo’s A Tough Dude.

  • The Philosopher

    @clapzilla: If the injury to his head and/or neck were so serious, why wasn’t he carried out of the arena? Why the very next game he played like nothing happened? And to be sarcastic, Kobe’s been playing with a broken hand/finger for over a decade. You get my drift, though.

  • http://nuggetsnation.proboards.com/index.cgi clapzilla

    The Injury Wasn’t Serious, But It Still Knocked Him Out. Do You Think They Rush Every Boxer To The Hospital Just Because They Were Out For A Minute? C’mon, Shattering Your Shooting Hand Enough Where You Have To Miss 3 Weeks But You Still Score 15 Points In The 4th Quarter To Seal A Victory Isn’t Impressive? Tough Crowd.

  • The Philosopher

    @clapzilla: The hand quagmire was impressive, no doubt. But when one is “knocked out”, it would constitute gross negligence not to take him to the hospital for observation, no? They didn’t take him to the hospital because nothing was wrong with him.

  • kanufleng

    i know melo wants to win. but i dont like the way he’s doing it. set a screen for billups, either accepts the ball midrange or post. and thats it. its gonna be an isolation. just pure one and one. cant stand it when im watchin.

  • chintao

    ‘Melo’s no leader (… yet), but neither are Mambiatch and LeBlows Jane. Blowme Kryant is just an a$$hole, and his teammates simply ignore him. El BJ is a lifetime follower, as evidenced by his frontrunnerdom. Out of the three, I don’t think it is a stretch to say that Carmelo has the most character and the greatest potential to materialize into a leader.
