In the 2003 NBA draft, the first five picks were LeBron James, Darko Milicic, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade. Now that’s a great top 5! Probably as good as you will ever see!
Coming out of college, Carmelo Anthony was considered one of the top players in the nation in college basketball. He was a star at Syracuse University, averaging 22.1 points per game and 10 rebounds. He was a fluid player who showed great athleticism while playing there. He led his team to a National Championship as a freshman and after the season, declared for the NBA draft. With a quick first step, and a deadly jumper, Anthony was a sure fire, top 5 pick heading into the 2003 draft.
With the 3rd overall pick, the Denver Nuggets selected Carmelo Anthony and the dividends started paying off immediately. While with the Nuggets, Anthony averaged 24.8 points per game and was clearly one of the most electric scorers in the NBA. He led his team to the playoffs year in and year out and even made the Conference finals once.
Not good enough! In the NBA, your legacy and reputation are based on championships. Despite all the dominant scoring, Anthony never led his team to the NBA finals. Meanwhile, in just his third season, Dwayne Wade helped lead the Miami Heat to their first NBA Championship in franchise history. LeBron James was winning MVP’s in Cleveland and led his team to the NBA finals in 2007 but could not win it all. We all know how this story ends as LeBron James joined forces with Wade and Chris Bosh and together they secured the NBA championship for the hated Miami Heat.
