Even at 36 years old, 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony continues to do his thing for the Portland Trail Blazers. Having resurrected his career in the Pacific Northwest, the former Denver Nuggets top-three pick is playing an important role for a playoff team.

He’s also now reached heights few before him could have scarcely imagined. In fact, only nine players in the entire history of the NBA have scored more points than Carmelo Anthony.

Monday evening against the Atlanta Hawks, Melo passed the great Elvin Hayes for 10th on the all-time NBA scoring list. He did it in fashion with this And-1 from beyond the three-point line against Hawks forward Danilo Gallinari.

Talk about prime Carmelo Anthony right there. He now joins the greatest of all-time on the list of all-time scorers around the Association. It really is a list to behold.

Anthony will more than likely pass Moses Malone and Shaq should he play another season in the NBA. Chamberlain is a bit further away, but that’s a possibility.
