Reports came out yesterday that Carmelo Anthony and the Houston Rockets brass were going to meet to discuss his role with the contenders. Not sure why a meeting was even necessary. The former Syracuse stud is at best a 6th man or role player off the bench. Noticed on how I said former stud.
Today, the report has come out that Anthony has been informed that his time with the Rockets will soon be coming to an end. I have said this for many years that Carmelo is an awful basketball players. Sure he filled up the box score when he was in Denver and early on during his time with the Knicks, but last year we finally saw the demise and downfall of the former beloved Syracuse freshman phenom.
There may be some NBA heads who still believe in Carmelo, and we all know every Syracuse fan still believes in him, but let’s be a realist and call it like it is. Carmelo Anthony is done. He is a selfish player who needs to get his, but can’t create his own shot like he once used to. He needs players like Westbrook, and CP3, and Harden to create opportunities for him. Swallow your damn pride and average 10-12 points a game and win a ring instead of being a pre Madonna and ruining your image.
If you disagree with my stance, come at me @therebound_king. You won’t win.
