The New York Knicks became one of 10 team to purchase a multi-camera system from STATS, LLC that tracks every movement in an NBA game.

Carmelo Anthony was the most efficient player in the NBA of all players who drove the ball at least 40 times in camera-recorded games during the 11-12 season. New York scored 1.66 points per possession on those trips. Anthony shot the ball on 55 percent of those drives and drew fouls on 25 percent of them. Anthony shot just better than 50 percent.

But Anthony drove just 3.1 times per game, equivalent to the same rate as Chandler Parsons and Luol Deng.

Anthony also ranked No. 1 on points per possession on all of his elbow touches. Anthony shot 62 percent on shots taken after an elbow touch.

Melo is probably the best all around scorer in the league, yea I said that. He has an outside shot that once it gets going he is deadly, on top of that a post game that is really good, but something that is just under utilized in his game. It does seem odd that he is so efficient, because at times when you watch him he could be really inefficient.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Definitely the funnest scorer to watch on offense for me, especially when he's having a good game.

My 2nd favorite player after Kobe I love Melo's game and I think he's severely underappreciated by most NBA fans, besides lack of effort sometimes he has the 2nd most complete game in the NBA after Kobe.

And if the Lakers somehow don't win I'll be rooting for the Knicks and Melo idc if can't seem him winning a ring we all couldn't see Dirk winning won including myself so ya never know.

Not surprising. It's no secret that Melo is one of the best scorers in the league if not the best. The problem is he doesn't really do anything else. He's not an all around player like Kobe or LeBron.
