Third Tier Honors For Carmelo
(FortCollins-CO) The Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony was named to the All-NBA third team for his performance in the 2005-06 season. 'Melo averaged 26.5 points per game and was very consistent as his supporting cast was continually in shuffle. Carmelo was eighth in the league in scoring, right behind Dirk Nowitzki. Hightlights from this year's efforts are abundant, but a couple really stick out in my mind. First, probably the biggest facial the league saw this year on Theo Ratliff. Secondly, the last second bomb he dropped on the Minnesota Timberwolves from the corner for the game winner. Congratulations Carmelo, keep up the good work.
