Carmelo Anthony Considered Retirement Before Portland Offer

The Trail Blazers went 3-0, beating the Bulls twice as well as the Thunder. Friedell is a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and joined ESPNChicago.com for its launch in April 2009.

Less than two weeks after joining the Portland Trail Blazers, Carmelo Anthony was recognized for his strong performances with his new team.

"I didn't make the decision, but I'm grateful that I won the award", Anthony told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. I just had a year off.

The league named the Portland forward its Western Conference Player of the Week.

However, after the game, George came to Anthony's defense for the second time this week. "Like, the blame is gonna be on me anyway".

Disney Releases New Mulan Trailer
Disney dropped a new trailer for its live-action remake of Mulan on Thursday, and it's packed with action and fierce imagery. It seems the live-action " Mulan " will instead focus on CGI creatures and sweeping martial-arts battle scenes.


Even acknowledging that it's just been six games, and the Blazers haven't exactly faced a tough schedule, Anthony certainly looks like he belongs in the league. "And I think that's what kinda keeps me motivated and understandin', like, this situation is - it is and was the best situation for me". However proper now, Anthony is capturing 46.2 % from the sphere and becoming properly alongside a gaggle of Blazers that wanted one other scorer to succeed.

Anthony has now played six games for the Blazers since signing with them last month. "First thing he said when he sat on the bench is, 'My goodness, am I getting great shots.' Right now, they're not going in, but they will". "It was hard. But there came a point when I was, like, "You know what? But it's not something that I was calling him and talking to him about, asking him, 'Can you do this for me?' [But] I would've never put him in that position because a lot of times it's deeper than that, and I started understanding the business of basketball". Gray Trent Jr.is expected to play in this game following a hamstring injury.

Carmelo Anthony is back in the National Basketball Association and fans couldn't be happier.

"I feel good", he said. No, I've always been against all odds. I thought he was just messing with me. "I had a year off resting my body".
