He finished the tournament shooting a blistering 53.5% from the field and hit half of his 46 3-point attempts.
Anthony set the U.S. Olympic single-game scoring record with 37 points against Nigeria on Aug. 2. And he only needed 14 minutes to do so.
That game capped a two-game stretch in which Anthony scored an eye-popping 53 points in just 26 minutes.
The next question for Knicks fans, of course, is this: How does Anthony's Olympic success translate to the 2012-13 NBA season?
Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who served as an analyst for NBC during the Olympics, said the oft-criticized Anthony can benefit from his big summer in London.
"It gives guys who have struggled a chance to get it back," Rivers said when speaking about Anthony. "And they have."
We'll have to wait a couple of months to see how this all plays out on the NBA hardwood. And, of course, it's unrealistic to expect Anthony to replicate his Olympic numbers with the Knicks. The level of competition is drastically different in the NBA.
But if Anthony can play in Orange and Blue with anywhere near the efficiency he showed in Red, White and Blue, the Knicks should be in good shape.
Another good sign for the Knicks?
After winning his second goal, Anthony talked about the lone thing missing from his resume -- an NBA title.
“It’s the one thing that’s missing is the NBA championship,’’ Anthony said, according to the New York Post. “I had a chance to win in high school, college, now two gold medals. My next goal is try to win a championship.’’
