Melo’s Last Dance

Carmelo Anthony Hopes To Get One Last Opportunity in the NBA

Watching his close, banana boat friend Dwyane Wade ride off into the sunset lit a fire in Carmelo Anthony.

Not looking to give in, Melo is hoping to get one final opportunity in the NBA and a la Wade, have his one last dance. Anthony played just 10 games last season as a member of the Houston Rockets before being moved to the Chicago Bulls where he was subsequently waived. Now, still unsigned, Anthony believes he is “100% ready” for a return to the League.

His trainer, Chris Brickley recently appeared on Breakfast Club to discuss Melo’s NBA future:

“Yes, given the situation. Allen Iverson, if you remember. He kind of got, some people say, blackballed. He got into a situation in his career, where teams would be like, ‘oh, he’s gonna want this role, so we’re gonna stay away.’ I think that’s what’s going on with Melo right now. He’s easily better with 60 percent, 70 percent of NBA players walking around. I think teams are afraid of, ‘I want to be the star,’ or ‘I want this.’ That’s not the case, though. Melo just wants to have a final season, farewell season, do what D-Wade did. Do the jersey swap. He had a great career, he’s a Hall of Famer. So hopefully that can happen.”

It will be difficult to envision a team taking a chance on the aging veteran. At 35-years old, Anthony is a liability on defense, is not much of a shot creator for others and hasn’t shot at least 45-percent from the field since the 2013-14 campaign back when he was 29.

Will Melo get one last opportunity in the NBA?
