Congratulations to former OHA star Carmelo Anthony (’02 grad) on being named the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Week, as the NBA opens the 2009-10 season.
The Denver Nuggets forward was named Western Conference Player of the Week for games played from Tuesday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Nov. 1.
Anthony, who leads the NBA in scoring at 37.7 ppg, has led Denver to its first 3-0 start since the 1985-86 season and only the fourth perfect start in team history.
Oak Hill Alum Carmelo Anthony more than helped the Denver Nuggets overcome a 12-point halftime deficit, tying a 30-year old NBA record for most points in a quarter with 33. Anthony matched George Gervin’s league mark for points in a quarter with 33 in the third and finished with a season-high 45 points in Denver’s 116-105 home victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.
“I’ve never been a part of a quarter like that before,” Anthony said. “I just felt that good. I can’t explain it. My 3-ball was going in, driving to the basket, getting fouled. Just the complete game tonight.” Anthony was Oak Hill’s MVP for the 2001-2002 season and went on to lead Syracuse to the NCAA National Championship the following year.
The Warriors are looking forward to seeing one of their own face the World in this year’s Olympic games in Beijing in Carmelo Anthony.
