Carmelo Anthony can’t catch a break with All-NBA voters: Carmelo Anthony’s career-high assist average and recognition of him sharing the ball more than ever did nothing to sway All-NBA voters. For the third straight season, Anthony was not named on any of the three All-NBA teams, announced Thursday.
