By ESPN New York staff
Carmelo Anthony is coming off one of the best statistical seasons of his career.
He led the NBA in scoring at 28.7 points per game and hit a career-high 44.9 percent of his 3-pointers. Anthony also posted a career-high 24.8 Player Efficiency Rating, a measure of a player's per-minute production.
Yet, ESPN.com's #ESPNRank has Anthony rated as the 15th best player in the NBA.
#NBARank is a ranking of all 500 NBA players compiled by a panel of 215 ESPN journalists.
Last year, Anthony, who is known as a supreme offensive talent but subpar defender, ranked 17th. This year, he is one spot behind Blake Griffin and one ahead of Tim Duncan.
QUESTION: Do you agree with this ranking? Are there 14 players in the NBA better than Carmelo Anthony?
