Carmelo Anthony is Hungry

by March 31, 2009

Hungry for that elusive Playoff series win: “For Anthony, winning a playoff series is one of the few things not on his resume. Even more troubling, the Nuggets are a pathetic 4-20 in the playoffs during Anthony’s tenure, although he did miss one loss as a rookie in 2004 due to a knee injury. ‘Any great player is based upon what they do in the playoffs,’ Anthony said. ‘As far as being a great basketball player, scoring and just being a top player in the league, playoff success is the only thing I’m missing. (Winning a series is) very important to me. That’s my goal. That’s what I want to achieve. My time will come.’ Anthony believes there’s a very good chance it will come this season. ‘I’m starving,’ said Anthony, who believes the Nuggets can beat any team in a playoff series. ‘I can taste it. It’s right there. We have a big opportunity I think we can make some noise with this team right here, and I think this is the year we can do it. We got a better team. We got guys who know what it takes…We’re just a totally better team than we had in the past.'”
