There was a time when the New Orleans Pelicans and New York Giants would have been a formidable pairing.
The teams were so close that a series victory in the 2016-17 season would have propelled the Pelicans to the playoffs and made the Giants a lock for the playoffs, respectively.
The last time the two teams met was in the 2017-18 season, a 6-5 win for the Pelicans.
The Pelicans, who had won three of their first four games before the defeat, were able to hang in there, even with Anthony missing time due to injury.
However, that win ended up being the difference in a series that ended up in a tiebreaker.
The Pelicans went on to defeat the Giants in the second round.
The next time the teams faced off in the 2018-19 season, the Pelicans would be in the playoffs.
The series was close but ultimately lost to the New England Patriots in five games.
The Patriots had to go through the first round, where the Pelicans were able go on to win it in five game series.
After that, things were much different.
The season was on hold for a few years and the Pelicans did not make the playoffs again.
Anthony had his knee surgery and missed time in 2018-2019 due to an injury.
The team went on a long road to the 2019 NBA Finals, where they lost to Kevin Durant’s Golden State Warriors in six games.
Anthony returned in 2019-2020, but it was not to be.
After missing all of the 2018 playoffs, Anthony returned to the court in 2019 to start training camp with the New Jersey Nets.
This time, Anthony was able to start the season strong and was able make an impact for the team.
The Nets started the season 2-6, but they managed to win their next four games, culminating with a blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first game of the regular season.
The season would end up being a complete disappointment for Anthony and the team, but his return was a great start.
The New York Pelicans would finish the season 4-1, including a 4-0 record on the road, in the series with the Warriors.
The following year, the team had a much better start to the season, as they went on an 11-game winning streak, but the playoffs were not to come for the Nets.
The Nets went on the back to back NBA Finals appearances, losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State.
The 2018-20 season was also a tough one for Anthony, as he suffered a torn ACL during the preseason and missed the entire 2018-2020 season.
The injury also severely hampered his development, as Anthony would not play in a game until December.
The NBA was finally able to work out a deal to have Anthony rehabbed and ready to play by the time the 2019-20 regular season rolled around.
Anthony was able have a breakout year, as the New Knicks were able turn their season around in the 2019 playoffs.
Anthony scored 29 points in a win over New Orleans in the third round.

The Knicks went undefeated during the playoffs until losing to LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers.

Anthony led the Warriors to a comeback win over Cleveland, and then in the NBA Finals with the Los Angeles Clippers, scoring 28 points in his first start.
The 2021-21 season was one of the best seasons for Anthony as he led the Knicks to an NBA Championship, and it was a good one for him as well.
Anthony finished the year with 20.7 points per game, which was fourth in the league, and also made an All-Star team.
Anthony also had 12 rebounds, which tied him for fourth in NBA history.
The New York Yankees were a very tough team to beat in the early part of the 21st century, and Anthony would help them become the first team to ever win three championships in a row.
Anthony went on and scored 20 points and added seven assists in the win over Toronto.
Anthony played a major role in the success of the Yankees, as his impact would be felt throughout the organization.
The Yankees went on three straight division titles, with the most recent being the 2017 World Series.
