Carmelo Anthony’s NBA career is now officially over.

The scoring dynamo called it quits on Monday after playing 19 seasons in the league, and he has left behind an impressive resume, not to mention plenty of memories.

He didn’t just have 1,001 ways to score, but he was also deadly with a game on the line.

The NBA posted a video on its official Twitter account that allowed fans to relive some of Anthony’s most memorable moments in crunch time.

Anthony retired with 28,289 points, which is 11th on the all-time list, plus 10 All-Star Game nods and six All-NBA selections.

He was the No. 3 pick in the 2003 NBA Draft and spent his first seven seasons and change with the Denver Nuggets, a franchise that had long been a laughingstock when he arrived.

But after several years, he turned them into a contender and led them to the 2009 Western Conference Finals, where they played Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers tough before falling in six games.

The Syracuse University product then got traded to his hometown team, the New York Knicks, midway through the 2010-11 season before heading to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2017.

After failed stints with the Thunder and Houston Rockets, it looked like he was done, but the Portland Trail Blazers took a flyer on him early in the 2019-20 season, allowing him to reinvent himself as a 3-point specialist off the bench, which bought him three more seasons.

Anthony didn’t win an NBA championship, but he is a sure-fire Hall of Famer, and he has already earned lots of respect for his work as a social justice activist off the court, as he won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Justice Champion award in 2021.
