Carmelo Anthony is regarded as one of the best scorers to ever play in the NBA.
Melo averaged 22.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game for his career, but ultimately failed to win an NBA championship.
But that doesn’t mean he didn’t earn the respect of former and current NBA players.
Apart from that, he apparently collected an insane amount of shoes throughout his 19-year career in the NBA.
Anthony showed off his impressive shoe closet via NBACentral on Twitter, and fans had a plethora of amazing reactions to it.

I’m so jealous

Most fans had breathtaking reactions to the post.
A few were jealous of Melo’s collection.
But as usual, a couple of fans tried to make fun of the NBA legend by saying he has more shoes than the number of championships throughout his career in the league.
Winning rings is important for a player’s legacy in the NBA, but at times, fans tend to ignore any other accomplishments in favor of titles.
For example, Anthony is six-time All-NBA, a 10-time All-Star, a scoring champion, and part of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary team.
Melo will one day be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame and have his jersey retired by at least the Denver Nuggets or the New York Knicks in the future.
However, there will be a few fans who will still joke about his inability to win a ring in his career.
Either way, that won’t take away the fact that Anthony has a phenomenal shoe collection.NEXT: Lakers GM Says Veteran Has Been Working Closely With LeBron James
