Carmelo Anthony is a great figure for the NBA. In his rookie season he had made it difficult for LeBron James with his shocking performance. Anthony has been a real learner throughout his life. Losing a huge part of his prime because of injury was depressing for the all-star. Making his major contribution with the New York Knicks, he had turned heads. But the post injury comeback was hard phase in his life. He couldn’t cope up with the game. So he accepted smaller roles getting off the bench. Coming to Portland Trail Blazers was another phase which he contributed significantly.
Carmelo Anthony is slightly getting some touch back. With his astonishing shooting form once again, he is making his presence felt. Teammate Jusuf Nurkic was really pleased and turned vocal praising the veteran all-star. Nurkic took it to twitter appreciating the value Melo added to the team and the games. Despite, Nurkic took a sly dig to LaMelo Ball while applauding the effort of Carmelo Anthony.
