5) You can see Carmelo Anthony's game in his shoe. When designer Justin Taylor sketched out the Melo M8, he put Melo's game right there on the side. If you follow the patent from front to back, you have the catch and post in the front, where it dips, the quick move where it rises up, then the reset and explosion to the basket at the rear. Makes sense, right? The Flywire is there to support Melo's power game.
