First Since Fat Lever in 1988
(FortCollins-CO) Carmelo Anthony has been named Western Conference Player of the Month for the month of March. ‘Melo averaged 29.9 points a game and led the Nuggets to an 11-5 record. Carmelo continues to develop into a league superstar at the small forward position. Forward Paul Pierce only outscores him at his position in the entire NBA. ‘Melo is posting season averages of 26.7 points, 2.6 assists, and five rebounds. More importantly than the scoring boost he is having this year in comparison to the last two is his ability to lead the Nuggets on a nightly basis. Carmelo’s most improved area of his game is maturity. He is taking better shots and hitting with a greater efficiency. Congratulations Carmelo, the league is taking notice to what Nugget fans have been privileged to enjoy all season long! This is the first time a Nugget has been the recipient of this honor since Fat Lever was named back in 1988.
