It's been a while since Carmelo Anthony suited up for an NBA game, but at long last, the 35-year-old has been given another shot in the league. Melo is making his Portland Trail Blazers debut in New Orleans on Tuesday, and about an hour before tipoff he was on the court warming up. Well, it's only warmups, but Melo doesn't looked to have missed a beat with his jump shot, as he was knocking back 3's with ease.
Every NBA fan is excited to see Melo back in action, and hopefully he can provide some value to this Blazers team after fizzling out of his last few situations in the league.
And what's better is Blazers head coach Terry Stotts has inserted Anthony into the staring lineup where he's projected to log around 20 minutes of run. Stotts even suggested Melo could stick in the starting lineup if he plays well.
It's time to see what's left in Melo's tank as he steps onto an NBA court for the first time since Nov. 8, 2018 as a member of the Rockets.
