You may have asked yourself this question once or twice over the past few months: Can Carmelo Anthony still shoot basketballs through basketball hoops? Well good news, folks -- judging by this video posted to his Facebook site, he indeed can:

It's easy sometimes to forget the sheer aesthetic pleasure of watching this man effortlessly nail jumpers for any and every spot on the floor. More importantly, he is one of few players in the NBA who can do this against any opponent. Hopefully knee surgery hasn't robbed him of that ability.
So what do we get to see here? Some high (pinch)-post action, some pick-and-pop, a few low-post fadeaways, and even an off-leg Dirk fadeaway.
Melo is working out at his own private gym in Manhattan, so fear not...he is in New York; he is working out. The guy probably feels compelled to post these videos to prove to the public he is actually doing his job, and I don't blame him.
I can't wait for Melo to get an opportunity to ply his trade once again; preseason can't get here fast enough.
