Carmelo Anthony Moves Into 9th Place On All-Time Scoring List 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Oct 25, 2021 12:39 pm

In the Los Angles Lakers victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points. That was enough to vault Anthony past Moses Malone and into ninth-place on the NBA's all-time scoring leaders list.


Anthony passed Malone with a three-pointer late in the third quarter. Anthony said postgame that his longevity is something he's proudest of his career.


"I'm still here doing it," Anthony said. "I think that's what I'm honestly excited about. I'm here in year 19 still doing what I'm able to do. Still passionate about the game. Still passionate about coming to work every day and getting better. And what a better night to reach ninth than with a win, the way that we needed a win tonight."


Anthony now has 27,423 career points. Former Lakers great Shaquille O'Neal is in eighth-place with 28,596 points.

Melo scored 924 points in 69 games last season. Should catch Shaq (1,173 away) this season.

Would need to average 14.8 over the last 79 (is currently at 17.7).
Can afford to miss 15 games if he keeps the 17.7 rate.
