Jerry Colangelo: Carmelo Anthony ‘is not in the best of shape’


Jerry Colangelo: Carmelo Anthony 'is not in the best of shape'USA Basketball Managing Director Jerry Colangelo believes that forward Carmelo Anthony needs to return to where he was two summers ago, according to The Rocky Mountain News.

"Carmelo still has work to do in terms of getting ready," said Colangelo. "He came up with a little cramp because of conditioning (in Thursday’s practice). . . . We need a lot out of Carmelo."

"He has to play at the same intensity (of the past two summers). He has to get up and down the court. He has to knock down his shots," he added. "Right now, he’s not shooting well, and he’s not in the best of shape yet."
