As we all expected, the ​Houston Rockets have decided to part ways with Carmelo Anthony

The separation comes a little more than three days after it was reported that ​members of the Rockets believed Melo played his last game for Houston.

After an underwhelming season with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2017-18 and lasting just 10 games with the Rockets, it's officially time for Carmelo to hang em up... 

Yes, the 10-time All-Star should retire. 

Melo averaged just 13.4 points on 40.5 percent shooting in his brief stint with Houston. This is a year after averaging 16.2 points while just barely scraping the 40 percent mark from the floor last campaign. 

We respect the 34-year-old having confidence in himself, believing that he could still contribute to a contending team, but deciding to keep playing will continue to tarnish a Hall of Fame career. 

During his playing days, Melo has averaged 24 points and 6.5 rebounds per night, with a 45 percent field goal percentage. He is 19th on the ​NBA's all-time scoring list, a former scoring champion, and has made six appearances on the All-NBA Team. 

Please call it quits Melo...while the media still considers you an all-time great scorer.
