Can you tell me why Carmelo Anthony is a selfish player?

Datprince.. seriously, take your head outta your arse!
Barkley is a HOF player and one of the 50 greatest of all time. Dude's numbers are friggin mint and he played in the tougher league talent wise- meaning there was more talent in the league on each team at that time. More and better bigs, better guards and higher overal level of all-star talent. If this league is weaker why wouldn't he gain more hype?? Your post doesn't seem to make sense.
That's like saying Frazier wouldn't be nice in this era, which is counter-intuitive. He'd put a hurtin on people and do basically what he did in his era. Barkley would do the same.
A lil closer to being accurate, but still slightly biased.
I think Melo would play similar to how he's playing throughout his career in other decades.
He's a great scorer, a legit great scorer.
Games translate across eras.
Same w Barkley. He would dominate this era like he did 80's-90's.

Regardless, Charles Barkley played with passion and toughness night in and night out. You don't do what he did as a 6'4" 1/2 PF in that era without bringing something extra.
Barkley was a beast. You don't understand how good that dude was.
Are we talking about the same Barkley? Passion? The guy was as lazy a player there was in the league. That's why later in his career he was walking around the court looking fat albert. Melo is a better scorer, better shooter, better defender and better all around human being than Barkley ever was.
1. Forced deal that depleted Knicks to the tune of 19 players, 56 draft picks, and 46 billion dollars.
2. Quit on coach, which is cardinal sin. It's something you JUST. DON'T. DO.
3. Picture of self above fireplace
The three points I listed scream "INSECURE EGOMANIAC", a condition which goes hand in hand with selfishness.
2. Not a known fact
3. Thats a fact but I also have a picture of Melo above my fireplace
You shall be tortured by the Brazen Bull for your lack of posting skills
Yes Barkley is annoying. Yes he says ridiculous things and he seems to have it in for our franchise somewhat, but none of the above has any baring on the mans legacy as a player.
He is a legit great scorer/ rebounder.
To the people saying he was lazy... Let me tell y'all something about the game of basketball.
You can't average 11-13 rebounds per game and score in the 20's, at 6'4'', at the PF position and not work hard. This is not possible. To say that Barkley was lazy defies basic basketaball logic. Think before you post people. Double digit boards at 6'4' = Hard Work.
