Additional Information
Carmelo Anthony measured just 6-7 with shoes. He was 6-6 without them. He does have a nice, 7-foot wingspan. Also a few teams questioned his weight. He weighed 234 in Chicago, about 14 pounds above his listed playing weight of 220 at Syracuse.
Chad Ford - ESPN.com (June 9th)

The biggest disadvantage Anthony has is that he is a pure small forward, not possessing the versatility and explosive burst that James has and not wide enough to be a low-post banger.  But so what?  Look around the league, and there are few true small forwards, players who have the size, athleticism and shooting range to play 15 to 20 feet from the hoop, combined with the skills to operate in the post when mismatches come.  Players who have the abilities - Antoine Walker or Tim Thomas, for example - often mismanage them.

Anthony can hit the midrange jumper much better than James.  He is an underrated passer and could one day play a halfcourt, point-forward role, like Jamal Masburn or Webber.  Like James, his defense should be called an unknown, not a negative, because Syracuse played a 2-3 zone.
