Nene Says Melo Could’ve Been The GOAT But He’s Too Selfish & Doesn’t Make Players Better (VIDEO)
Carmelo is easily one of the best natural scorers the NBA has ever seen, but his legacy will be that of a selfish player who didn’t make his teammates better, at least according to former Denver Nuggets teammate Nene.
Nene had an interview with Canal Chuá, and while the interview is in Portugese, he made it clear that Melo could’ve easily been the best player in the league, but he was too selfish and wasn’t too fond of playing defense.
“Tell me a little bit about Carmelo Anthony, one of the best scorers I’ve ever seen.
Nene: “Carmelo man… He’s a guy who could’ve been the best player in the League—the way he uses his body, the accuracy on his shots, the variation of dribbles and shots that he has, and his low-post fundamentals…”
He’s insane in the post. His jab step is the best in the League.
Nene: “Yeah he is simply the best down there, but he’s just too selfish. He can’t make his teammates better. If he did that, he could’ve been the best in the League. Oh, and if he played defense… Because he knows how to guard people, I played with him for 8 years, so I know.”
