Should Carmelo Anthony retire or play in China?

Carmelo Anthony is washe up. He's gone from consistent 20-point scorer to averaging 13.4 points per game this season, and looking like a ball-chucking black hole. 

He's been so bad, Sports Line estimates the Rockets are nearly 20 percent more likely to make the playoffs WITHOUT him. That lack of value is rarely seen in the NBA. Right now, his Value Over Replacement is -.2, meaning an average player contributes more than he does. Anthony is too stubborn to change for the modern NBA. He should just retire.

Anthony's time in the NBA might be over, but that doesn't mean his basketball playing career should be over. He can head to China where he would be paid handsomely and dominate a less-talented competition pool. 

Anthony is still an elite scorer from the block and he would have a field day in the CBA. Players before him, like Stephon Marbury, reinvented themselves overseas and became legends. Anthony could improve his legacy by growing the league out there and put up some gaudy numbers along the way. Playing in China would be the best option.
