Four Times Already?

(Boulder-CO) Well Nuggets fans it has happened again. No we haven’t lost another power forward, tasteless I know, but seriously… Carmelo has once again been named Western Conference Player of the Week for the fourth time in his young career. He is being named such honor for the week of November 20th through the 26th that included a stretch where he scored 29 points against Chicago in a win, 33 in a road victory against the Warriors, 30 in a winning home re-match with Golden State, and 33 against the Clippers last night in yet another victory.

‘Melo is still leading the NBA in scoring at a frantic rate of 31.1 points a game and is also third in the league in steals. Anthony is the only player to be both in the top five in scoring and steals league-wide.

The previous three occasions in which Carmelo was named WCPW happened when he was named twice back in his 2004 rookie season and once during last year’s campaign.

He has scored 30 points or more in nine of the Nuggets 12 games thus far and has been the leader of the Nuggets as they have won eight of their last nine games, including a current five game winning streak.

Congratulations, Carmelo. There is no doubt that you are simply amazing!
