Earlier this week, Carmelo Anthony’s trainer Chris Brickley was in the news saying he was better than 60 to 70 percent of the players currently in the league and that he absolutely deserves a roster spot.
“To set things straight. My well publicized comments about @carmeloanthonywere MY personal opinions and I’m not speaking for Melo or anyone else,” Brickley wrote. “I stand completely by the fact he deserves to be in the league. I also stand by the fact when he decides to move on it should be on his own terms. He has a lot to offer any team on and off the court.”
On Friday, Carmelo decided to speak out for himself when he showed up on “First Take and spoke on a bevy of topics that included what happened with the Houston Rockets.
Melo wasn’t happy about how his tenure ended as he got ready for a game and to be told he couldn’t make the rotation. He felt it was deeper than basketball.
Melo speaking with Harden and Paul about what happened:
In 10 games (two starts), Melo averaged a career-low 13.4 points on 40.5 percent shooting from the field and 32.8 percent shooting from three.
As of right now, Melo’s NBA career remains up in the air and there seems to be zero interest towards him.
