NBA 2015-2016 Mid-Season Rankings : Top 10 Small Forwards

5. Carmelo Anthony : New York Knicks

Melo is finally looking like a team-player. His scoring is still great, averaging 21 points per game, which is fourth-most among small forwards, and his rebounding is outstanding, averaging 7.5 boards per game, second among small forwards. But Anthony has taken his passing to another level this season, averaging a career-high 4 assists per game.

It may not seem like much, but for a player whose reputation has largely consisted of being a ball-hog, Melo is becoming more of a facilitator with some help from rookie-sensation Kristaps Porzingis, and the Knicks are in the hunt to make the playoffs. A first-round matchup between the Knicks and Cavaliers is not out of the question and we all know the great duels Melo has had with LBJ even going back to their high school days. Anthony is an All-Star Starter because of the fan vote, but deserves to be on the All-Star team, at least as a reserve anyway.
