American basketball coach George Charles has expressed the view through his Twitter account that Carmelo Anthony is one of the best basketball players to ever play for the National Basketball Association (NBA) at the Denver Nuggets.

The list included Alex Inglis, Dikembe Mutombo, Nick Van Exel, Chonsiy Bilap and Nikola Jokich. In the comments, many fans have expressed outrage that Anthony is not included in the top five.
