Walt Frazier Wants Carmelo Anthony to Be More Like LeBron James


Heading into this season, Walt “Clyde” Frazier’s biggest piece of advice for Carmelo Anthony is to be more like LeBron James. Which, to be fair, sounds a whole lot easier said than done. From the NY Times: “Frazier, a television analyst for MSG, believes the Knicks improved this off-season with the acquisitions of Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby and Raymond Felton. But he was quick to point out that so did the Brooklyn Nets, the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics. That is why Frazier thinks Coach Mike Woodson and the Knicks, who are loaded with veterans, need to win now. ‘I think their window is a two-year window right now,’ he said of the Knicks’ chances at a championship. ‘They have to capitalize right away.’ Frazier knows what it takes to win a title. In the 1972-73 season, Frazier said that he, Bill Bradley, Willis Reed and other teammates had great chemistry. Like a number of Knicks fans, Frazier is eager to see if Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire can form a stronger bond this season. ‘They better forget last year and do whatever it takes,’ Frazier said of Anthony and Stoudemire. ‘They have to look at Miami and what LeBron James was able to do, Carmelo especially because James became the consummate player — defense, passing and whatever else it took for that team to get a championship.’”

    LeBron was all of those things before this past season…he just got better at them. He came into the league with all of the tools. He improved his jumpshot the past few seasons. The major things he added last season was a postgame and he stopped caring about proving people wrong. He just played. Melo’s tools are different. He could become more interested in defending, rebounding and passing. But he won’t be on LeBron’s level.

  • biggieman

    Ha keep dreaming Walt… Carmelo is too selfish to care about things like “passing” or “defense”. Knicks have a two-year window before they blow up this roster and start over.

  • Unknown nigga

    I’m glad he put this out there for all the “delusional” knicks fans who even think they have shot at winning. If clyde don’t think so, stfu

  • Rainman

    Heck, I wanna play more like LeBron James too

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/savagemuzicgroup T-Ray

    Couldn’t agree more well said.

    agree 100%

  • shockexchange

    What the Shock Exchange is learning is that it is hard to take “today’s players” out of their comfort zones. They play “their games” and that’s it. Just like there are lots of dogs who look like they can hunt, and bark real loud but have never caught a rabbit. At some point you have to conclude “that dog don’t hunt” and move on.

  • danpowers

    me too lol

  • pposse

    So let me get this straight Walt..you want Carmello to play more like the guy who is going to go down as the second bast baller of all time..okay, good luck with that!

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    sorry Walt, Lebron is one of a kind… he WILL go down as the greatest SF of all time

  • http://twitter.com/ekaravidaj Ermal Karavidaj

    or the best ever, you never know!

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    the one thing Carmelo should learn how to do like LeBron, considering his unique skillset, is learn to shoot as well as him. — Which a lot of you are going to flip out about. — I’m not talking about Mid-Range, (9-16 feet), I’m talking about everywhere else, (3-9 feet) (16-23 feet) – LeBron has been considerably better, despite the theory that Carmelo is the league’s “premier” or “second best to Durant” scorer in the league.

  • Junkie

    He needs to bring up his field goal rating, if he’s going to hog the ball at least make some baskets.

  • L Dribble

    This is only possible if he plays against Nigeria every night.

  • M Cho

    2 year window?? Look at the Knicks roster, then look at the other contenders’ rosters — that window is nailed shut.

    Good luck with that…

  • RKJ92

    easily he’s disgustingly dominant..

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    i never got why melo always got compared to bron.. no comparison

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    let the man dream..

  • RKJ92

    Its true though, there really isnt an arguement to it.. I still dont know why people argue that LeBron cant shoot he’s actually flat out nasty, Carmelo is just streaky so when he’s on, he looks like the better shooter; but the problem is he’s not shooting the lights out everygame to be the 2nd most dominant shooter everybody claims he is.. LeBrons always a consistant shooter though and in MY opinion never forces his shots there usually pretty decent looks with the positions he makes for himself.

  • hoodsnake

    What he actually said was, Pass the goddamn ball to Amare!

  • spit hot fiyah

    speculating and imitating, was walt

  • RKJ92

    Just because of similar body size, theyre the same position, and either got drafted together or within a year of eachother I dont really remember truthfully lmao! but thats really the only reasons theyre compared other then that though its a wash.. LeBron really is one of a kind were lucky to be able to watch him play the game of basketball not a lot of players will ever be as big and gifted as he is.

  • MrSuper

    He has to hit the gym hard then

  • Junior Taylor

    Bird would like a word with you. LeBron has a ways to go to dethroning Bird.

  • bike

    It is amazing that LeBrons career FG% is .531. Carmelo’s is around .430. I just don’t see Carmelo ever becoming a major inside threat…he doesn’t strike me as motivated enough.

  • robb

    I wanted to comment earlier but I couldn’t stop laughing. Keep dreaming Walt.

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    don’t get me wrong… birds nice.. but against born?! Really? think pippin may even take bird on home…

  • RKJ92

    I wouldnt even argue that at the moment JT, Birds nasty but LeBron will eventually surpass him unless some freak accident injury happens I just dont see them on the same level due to LeBrons otherworldly athletism and ability to literally control the game on BOTH ends (where Larry lacked in defensive ability WHEN comparing him to LeBron).

  • RKJ92

    That’s not their career shooting, that was their shooting from this past season bro LOL <3

  • RKJ92

    Pippin was nice but he wasnt Bird, Ive liked your views so far from what i’ve read but this would be a wash dude lmao! Bird was on one of those other worldly levels he had killer instinct, was an EXCELLENT playmaker, rebounder, shot 50%FG-40%3FG-90%FT, was a champion multiple times like mans was SCARED of Larry forreal!

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Bird would wipe the floor with Pippen. Bron is not on that level yet. You don’t win 1 title and have a legitimate argument as better than Bird. Man, this generation is bananas. Bird is still the GOAT small forward. Bron has to win another title in dominant fashion for this to even be a discussion.

  • Guest

    truthfully speakin… the only advantage i see pip having on bird is speed and defense… and i believe that’ll be good enough to hold him.. but hey i could be wrong

    Dont get me wrong though I never once said LeBron is better then him right now I said LeBron will EVENTUALLY surpass him which I truthfully believe.. and I have MAD respect for Larry.. he was NASTY!

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Nobody ever held Bird. (not talking shit) – have you never really watched Bird? Do you know about the things he used to do?
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/364412-boston-celtics-if-only-larry-bird-was-walking-through-that-door if you haven’t that link has a few stories about Bird. — In Bird’s prime, Pippen would have been eaten like a cookie infront of the cookie monster.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    to just say that it is inevitable for LeBron to pass Bird is CRAZY (imo). If LeBron doesn’t win another title he will not be better than Bird. And it is never a given that a player will win another title.

  • Dagger

    You realize that you could make a legit point for Bird being a better scorer (not only shooter), passer and rebounder than Lebron, right? Not to mention he was probably the most clutch player in the history of the game. Saying that he and Bron are on the same level is a credit to Lebron, not Bird. Don’t get me wrong, I think Lebron will go down as the best SF of all time, but he has a long road to travel. Larry was, after all, a legend.

  • Salty

    I think what he needs to learn from Lebron is his tenacity and the way he’s improved, mentally, over the last couple of years. Carmelo’s biggest weakness is his weak mind and heart.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Carmelo has a weak mind? How so? I have plenty of criticisms for him as a player, but that is not one of them.

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    LOL lets just say… those 3 are all legends

  • Conor

    I agree with @disqus_rOeXXBD2qs:disqus.

  • Ctk

    What if Melo is to Bron ..Is like Drexler to Jordan..He just ain’t good enuff…Other than Durant there is NOBODY better n the league u want to use to go against Bron PERIOD

  • http://twitter.com/Jzakoni Verified Account

    ‘What if Melo is to Bron ..Is like Drexler to Jordan’ couldn’t have said it better..

  • Conor

    Kobe. Until he is taken by injury, his skill set is overwhelming. You saw what he did to O.K.C. Though he cost Los Angeles two games (during the fourth quarter of both), he was equal with Durant relative to production.

    There was no reason for the 1st Round series versus Denver to have taken seven games but for inconsistent and occasionally effortless play. It won’t happen again, the Lakers have what I believe is going to be an excellent bench, resulting in fewer minutes for the starters that otherwise would have been misused.

    All this to say, Anthony bests LeBron with scoring but is inferior in every other category but man-to-man defence.

  • Conor

    * “It won’t happen again. …”

  • WorkinGeazy

    You really cant compare the two Lebrons athletic ability sky rockets over Melo and his basketball IQ is off the charts compared to him!

  • LakeShow

    Exactly. Bron could and maybe even should pass Bird.
    But to act like it IS going to happen is as you say, crazy.

  • Yusaf

    Ha Ha this Walt funny. Carmelo cannot light a candle to LeBron. I should like extra mustard with that one ha.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    thank you, i was befuddled that people think it’s just going to happen.

  • MUBWAR

    can everyone drop all this conversation bout lbj vs melo. 4 seasons ago today was the last time melo past the 1st round. just drop it please

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    in what world is Anthony the superior scorer?

  • RKJ92

    Man im very level headed and I wasnt trying to sound crazy but I just dont see LeBron not winning the title this year unless LA becomes disgustingly good after the aquisition of howard and nash, which would give him his 2nd ring and IF and only IF he gets that 2nd ring with the same production amount this year or better I would put him on Par with Larry given LeBrons defense is A LOT better when comparing the two, I mean if im wrong thats fine but if LeBrons production was the exact same or better and he added another ring with better defense then Larry would you not at least say he’s just as good?

  • LakeShow

    Earth. The year is 2006.

  • RKJ92

    LOL #dead

  • Drig

    More well-rounded perhaps?? His perimeter shot is more consistent whenever I saw it. But he does settle for too many jumpshots at times. At a much more smaller level, we again get something similar to Kobe i.e. Melo vs Jordan i.e. LeBron.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Nope. LeBron scored 31 a game in 2006, Melo, 26. — Try again.

  • LakeShow

    The thing is, even once (if) he gets his 2nd, unless it’s the most dominant playoff performance of the last 20 years, he still doesn’t immediately leap Bird. He is as good a player today as Bird was overall i’d say, but he needs to take that team to one or two more chips before he is above Bird career and LEGEND wise.
    Your not crazy, just the notion that Bron WILL go down as better than Bird is a little too optimistic.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    factually speaking, Melo is in no way shape or form a better scorer than LeBron. He is only “better” from Mid-Range. The most inefficient and detrimental area to shoot the ball on a basketball court. (well the most inefficient and detrimental area to shoot a reasonable shot i should say).

  • Drig

    :| …………But seriously though, Melo for some goddamn reason doesn’t take it to the rack as much as he should ( just like JSmoove ) but I don’t get how his offensive game is in anyway inferior to LeBron’s…..Effectiveness LBJ blows everyone outta the discussion but ability wise, I think he’s better. Still don’t think he can make that switch though lol. And I think NYK needs him to step it up a LOT more on D.

  • RKJ92

    nbk +1

  • http://twitter.com/jklchay Jon Chay

    Thank you!

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    if only ability was what matters in a game tho. If ability is what it took, Kobe would be the best player ever. By a huge margin.

  • Drig

    True. But as far as ability goes, he does have almost all the tools that makes LeBron a good scorer. Playmaking, Melo will never approach LeBron. I think Walt said what he said with regards to his ability. Again, I don’t think he’s gonna change. And the small issue of his defense is more pressing than any of his offensive troubles lol. This is assuming Kidd can keep the ball outta Melo’s hands.

  • RKJ92

    I never at any point said Larry Bird and LeBron were on the same level please pay attention to what I wrote.. as of right now in LeBrons career Larry has been the better player (DUH) but what I was TRYING to say was that I feel very confident that he can end up the better player then Larry Bird NOT that he is right now I feel like your pulling a Skip Bayless on me not even knowing what I was talking about but spewing garbage back at me -.-

  • Drig

    I know. I’m just saying maybe Walt was focused on his latent ability and believes that Melo can make an attitude adjustment and become more of a team guy. I don’t like those odds but that’s NYK’s best bet lol. That’s actually sad for a team that’s called a contender lol

  • RKJ92

    Ya I agree completely with what you just said, because what I was saying is even with him being a better defender and getting 1 more ring he will only be A little under OR ON PAR with Larry, I think given say like 2 more championships, some league AND final mvp’s, more 1rst team all-defensive teams, he should be a lock considering he’s good enough that its quite feasible.

  • LakeShow

    So PPG is what makes one a “better” scorer than another?
    Kobe over Bron last year?

  • danpowers

    bron is the better overall player, period. melos offensive arsenal is bigger than lebrons. its just not really a point as long as lebron uses what he has much smarter than melo. besides midrange melo is the most efficient player in the league when he is driving the ball http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2012/08/30/knicks-carmelo-anthony-amare-stoudemire/. the knicks just didnt use that alot so far which should change this season. but still, as much as i hate to say it, lebron is on another lever unless melo doesnt play a whole season like he played last april (which is not very likely to happen)

  • RKJ92

    Not at all but i’d be willing to bet my left nut that LeBron was more efficient and scored more in both his head to head matchups with Melo AND Kobe that year ;)

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Come on Lakeshow, don’t tell me you really need me to explain that LeBron was also more efficient.

  • RKJ92

    I already beat you to it haha

  • LakeShow

    No he wasn’t.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Yes he was. Look at effective FG%. Not just fg% that doesn’t illustrate who was more efficient. And they were separated by .001% anyway.

  • LakeShow

    The Denver Nuggets had 6 players score over 12.5 PPG in 2005-2006.
    Carmelo did not need to score more. He scored on a larger variety of offensive moves at roughly the same percentage. He WAS a better scorer than Bron before 2007.
    Bron has progressed him game more than your giving him credit for. He has always been great at finishing at the rim, but he was not always great at scoring in half court sets and did not have a variety of offensive moves or skills and a shaky jumper before the last 4-5 seasons.
    The difference here is you see scoring layups as the same as scoring a difficult iso bucket since they both count for 2 points, but the idea is that you need someone on your team that can take the tough shots for when you can’t make easy layups.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    You do understand how weak that argument is don’t you? LeBron scored more points, more efficiently, despite being the only viable option on his team. Variety is irrelevant. Scoring is scoring, if you are better at doing it, you are better at it. Especially of you are better at doing WHILE HAVING WORSE TEAMMATES.

  • RKJ92

    and to add to that his point guards were Mo Williams, and Delonte West as the backup.. not exactly known as the best facilitating guards either.. theyre pretty much shoot first

  • O

    Who wouldn’t want their best player to be more like LeBron???

  • LakeShow

    He didn’t score more than Anthony a few other years. My point wasn’t particularly that Melo was a better scorer in the year of 2006 it was more in reference to the fact that after 2006 Bron changed and became better.
    Anthony was a better scorer in the first half of their careers. Bron was by far the better player. He was even better at scoring at certain points in the games, but Carmelo was a complete scorer. He has waned as his career has gone on.
    But to use your method just switch to 2006-2007. Melo=Better scorer.
    Post 2007=no contest LeBron is the better scorer.

  • LakeShow

    Hmmm?
    Sorry not following?

  • pposse

    how dare you downgrade drexler to carmella?/!

  • pposse

    Melo did pick up his game big time in April. I noticed something in him, that was never detected in his genes before. Its crazy to see him pull that off for an entire season and in the playoffs, you never knooo

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Carmelo Anthony has scored more points per game than LeBron James exactly 2 times Lakeshow. Twice. And he has done so more efficiently exactly 1 time. Once. – The one year he did both, score more points, more efficiently, was their Rookie Year.
    .
    LeBron is and has been since their second year in the league, the better scorer. Regardless of how many different ways the scoring happened.

  • The Fury

    Thank you for the link NBK, Bird is the Original Trash Talker in the NBA. That’s why he and GP are my all-time favorite NBA players. When I go back at home I’m gonna read again my old SLAM mag where Scoop made an article about Bird.

  • KC

    I understand what Clyde really means. He wants carmelo to be less selfish and have a more well rounded game. Carmelo does litttle more than shoot mid range jumpers and he isnt even that great at that. Everyone Talks about he is such a great international player but come on… Everyone on Team usa dominates the international competition(Except Kobe apparently lol) Plain and Simple Lebron is superior to carmelo in every aspect of the game of basketball. Better shooter, rebounder, passer,defender, ball handler, shot blocker, Leader, Higher baskeball IQ, Makes his teamates better…Better, lol and he even has a better signature shoe. Asking carmelo to play like lebron is almost as bad as asking me to play more like him. SMH

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Melo was the most efficient player in the league driving the ball last season. For 2 main reasons, he barely ever does it. and he only does it when he feels like he has a mismatch. – in other words, those 3.6 drives a game are the 3.6 good decisions he makes on offense.

    LeBron back then wouldn’t be LeBron now. The game was different. Training was different. Childhood was different. You don’t know how either player would have been in any era, you can only take them for what they were when they played. Human’s haven’t evolved in the last 50 years, sad to say i guess.

  • roscoe

    Good question… I think you are onto to what Walt is driving at, a challenge for Melo

  • young the block

    I agree. Bron is more of a point-forward while melo is more of a scorer. That said, Melo’s main focus should be on better shot selection. With J.Kidd running the O, and the pick and roll with Stat and Tyson, Melo is going to have to take better shots cause he’s not going to get to take 30 shots to score 25. In a sense Walt’s right. He’s gonna have to be a bit more of an all around player that all the greats usually are or become. He has no more excuses outside of not playing to not take that next step we all have been waiting for him to make.

  • danpowers

    lol at least that is something to build on

  • danpowers

    actually it was there b4., remember his trip to the conf finals with billups in denver? anyway, he will play much better than last year as they have a whole camp to prepare plus he lost alot of weight and looks like he is in a great shape.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Haha that’s so valid

  • danpowers

    if they discover that stat and melo still dont mesh, it would be a thought worth considering letting stat come off the bench and melo play pf. in april he played pf and was also good defensively. thad would be a lockfor 6th man of the yr award for stat plus an elimination of many knick problems at the same time. am just afraid that wont happen as woodson seems a little stubborn on this idea.

    Lebron will finish his career as a power forward. He won his first title essentially playing the pf position. Lebron came into the league as a point guard…it’s hard to put a position on him. Larry Bird was a 3 his whole career. The things he accomplished as a pure 3 were legendary. GOAT

  • Datkid

    Bird of the 80′s couldn’t guard today’s lebron. but then again Lebron would have a lot of trouble guarding bird. I think right now though lebron might be just about equal with bird in terms of ability

  • Datkid

    ehh…i’ll always think of him as the ultimate hyper versatile 3

  • Mike Jones

    @nbk. It is not difficult to look at NBA.com and look at the stats for both guys and see that lebron is statistically superior at the moment. He is a three time MVP (deserved MVP is another debate all together) look at the winning percentage when Anthony and Lebron play against each other(pre heat) include wade (pre lebron) Anthony beats them.

    Have a look at this link to see what happens when melo and lebron play each other.
    http://www.nba.com/advancedstats/player-vs-player.html#LeBron-James-vs-Carmelo-Anthony|2544,2546;year=201011;season=r

    just some quick positives about melo as opposed to lebron,
    Anthony doesnt turn the ball over as often,
    Has a higher free throw percentage
    Has hit more game winners than anyone in the league since 2003.

    But look enough about the past, this year,
    Anthony will out score lebron
    Out rebound lebron

    This may be a stretch of but Anthony will beat lebron in the East conference finals.
    And will be the League MVP.

  • danpowers

    sorry man but even i as a knicks fan gotta ask you if you were drunk when you wrote that
    “But look enough about the past, this year,

    Anthony will out score lebron
    Out rebound lebron

    This may be a stretch of but Anthony will beat lebron in the East conference finals.
    And will be the League MVP.”

  • danpowers

    leave your left nut then. in the playoffs bron and melo scored the same amount of points while melo outscored lebron in direct matchups during the season. anthony even outrebounded james in the postseason by two rebounds per game (but also played 3mpg more than james) http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/h2h_finder.cgi?request=1&p1=anthoca01&p2=jamesle01 that is not important anyway as lebron james was more efficient in these matchups (except two games, one in the reg season and one in the playoffs) and beat the knicks more often than the knicks beat the heat. in these heat wins lebron james lead his teams to victory. so he was outplaying anthony overall. we put too much emphasis on head to head comparisons anyway. this is not michael jordan in the 90s. this is basketball and as such a team sport. nobody wins without a working team. james wouldnt have won shit with the cavs back then if these ensemble of role players and former stars wouldnt have worked their butts off too.

  • Drig

    How the hell is Melo gonna get past Dwight, CP3, Kobe, Wade, DWill, Durant and probably KLove?!?! And LBJ is above them…….
