New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony has apparently been afforded the right to dribble only when he decides it’s best.

If you grew up like me, watching Patrick Ewing take his famous giant two-and-a-half step leap across the lane in the 1990s, then this won’t surprise you.

Still, it’s worthy of pointing out.

Check out Carmelo Anthony’s ridiculous non-travel in his New York Knicks blowout loss to the Miami Heat on Monday night. As Melo palmed the ball with his right hand while gearing up for one of hit patented ultra-quick pull-up jumpers, he shuffled his feet about 78 times prior to the shot being hoisted (video above).

Perhaps the only positive in this situation is to see Anthony receiving the benefit of a call for once. Unlike some of the superstars of the NBA – like LeBron James and Stephen Curry – Melo sometimes doesn’t get the call.

In this case he clearly does.
