We've never been the biggest Carmelo Anthony fans: dude went to a Big East school different than the one we went to, and was quite successful there. Additionally, 2003 was the first year we laid a halfway decent amount of money down at the beginning of the NCAA Tournament, and we threw that coin on Texas (when they had T.J. Ford), who ended up making the Final Four! We were ecstatic. Then, 'Melo dropped 33 and 'Cuse won the national semifinal. Our hearts sunk. Still, you do have to respect his scoring prowess: 33 in a single quarter last night vs. the Timberwolves. Here's a look at some clips on the fella.
