Carmelo Anthony Losing the Selfish Tag?

Since joining the New York Knicks in February 2011, forward Carmelo Anthony has been tagged with a series of unflattering labels and descriptions.
With the U.S. men’s team, Anthony has been anything but selfish. He’s been a team player, willing to do whatever it takes: play defense, rebound, pass, score. He’s been one of the best all-around players in international competition.
“There is this misconception of who he is and what he is,” (Team USA assistant Jim) Boeheim said. “This is what he does. I don’t think you should get criticized for doing what I, as a coach, want him to do, which is to score. It’s wrongful criticism. I don’t see trying to do your job as being selfish. If you have Carmelo Anthony, you want him to get the ball and you want him to score.”
