Last night, Carmelo Anthony’s season-high 35 points against the Miami Heat was enough to secure a win and his status as the 10th highest scorer in Knicks history. Anthony has 9011 points in seven NBA seasons in New York, pushing him past Bill Cartwright for #10 and behind Bill Bradley (9217) for the #9 spot.
Barring injury, Anthony is on pace this season to enter into the Top 5 currently held by Patrick Ewing (23,665), Walt Frazier (14,617), Willis Reed (12,183), Allan Houston (11,165) and Carl Braun (10,449).
Pat’s #1 spot is out of reach, but I expect Melo to nab that #2 spot before he hangs it up.
