Before you read this, just understand that this is nothing but a short rant of a basketball fan that has had enough of the garbage that is Carmelo Anthony’s game. I am not here to give you the details. If you’ve been watching the games, you simply understand what I am talking about.
I am infuriated these days when I watch the New York Knicks play. Linsanity ended the moment Melo laced ’em up again.
Not that Melo isn’t causing problems on the offensive end with his black hole style, but his offense was never my concern.
The problem with him has been and always will be on the defensive end. The dude just doesn’t try. I am sick of watching him float around instead of closing out on shooters he’s supposed to rotate to. It’s maddening to see him stand around instead of boxing out and going after the ball the way a man of his size at his position needs to. He, along with Amar’e (will have to save him for another day), has to be one of the worst defensive combinations in the league, if for no other reason than the total lack of effort.
The casual fans will want to see you score. The real fans are begging to see a defensive effort before anything else.
During the All-Star break, Stephen A. Smith asked Melo to name the top-five players in the league. He included himself along with Kobe, Lebron, Howard and KD.
On what planet?
Melo is a fitting name because that’s exactly what he is. He, in fact, is mellow on the court and there’s nothing intense about the dude’s game. It’s as if he’s just chilling out there until he gets his chance to shoot. You know who else is really chill? TMNT member Michelangelo. Melo should beam “Cowabunga dude!” whenever he makes a shot. At least it would be entertaining.

Doppelgängers is a paranormal double of a living person, typically representing evil or misfortune. In modern vernacular, the word has come to refer to any double or look-alike of a person – Wikipedia
Of course, you wouldn’t need the definition of a Doppelganger if you frequently watch How I Met Your Mother, but I digress. No offense intended. This is all in good fun. Enjoy and let me know if I missed any. I tried to leave out the absolute most obvious ones.
DeShawn Stevenson and Ivan Johnson
If nothing else, their beards are identical.
Channing Frye and Nick Cannon
Can you even tell if it’s a different person in these pictures? Frye is sucking it up for my fantasy squads, by the way. 4th rounder my ass.
MarShon Brooks and Tuvok
They have very resembling ears. I was gonna go with Don Cheadle but…
Mike D’Antoni and Adolf Hitler
It must be the stache, but an image of Hitler always pops into my head when I see D’Antoni.
Willie Green and Doc Rivers
Give Willie a few more years.
Anderson Varejao and Side Show Bob
This one is pretty well documented.
Lebron James and Melvin Guillard
Separated at birth.
Stan Van Gundy and Ron Jeremy.
It would do Stan well to get rid of that mustache.
Chris Bosh and a Raptor and Ostrich
It was always fitting that Bosh was a Raptor. Also, this Ostrich comparison is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen as a comparison
Trevor Booker and Chris Brown
Oh yes they do.
Luis Scola and Conan the Barbarian
It must be the hair.
Timofey Mozgov and the Russian lalala guy
Don’t know the Russian lalala guy? Youtube him.
Nick Collison and Go Soo
Might be their eyes, strangely.
Devin Harris and Chipmunk
I don’t know if it’s the shape of his head or what, but he always reminds me of a chipmunk.
Jason Kapono and Bill Simmons
Is it just me? They look related.
Nikola Pekovic and Ogre
Josh Childress and Rallo
I’m sorry, this is just hysterical.
Jimmer Fredette and Glen Quagmire
Jaw structure and the smile. Identical.
David Lee and Lee Dewyze
If David Lee gains weight or Lee Dewyze sheds some, they’d be twins.
Carmelo Anthony and Michelangelo
Anthony Davis and Jafar
The soon to be Hornet…?
