Carmelo Anthony hoping to re-write his script by winning in next destination
Carmelo Anthony’s legacy has taken a decent hit after a career-worst season as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, a rather poor fit that broke a legendary streak of 14 seasons averaging 20 or more points per game — one that had only been done throughout an entire career by the likes of Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant.
Temporarily a member of the Atlanta Hawks while the two sides figure out a buyout, Anthony is hoping his next stepping stone is one that can re-write the script of his reputation as a player.
“I think winning, at the end of the day, rewrites everything,” said Anthony, according to ESPN’s Jemele Hill. “It settles everything. I also look back at this past year. When we were winning, the story was written already. When we started losing, the story is written. It’s almost premeditated. I’m playing ball. I’m happy. I’m excited about what’s to come, wherever that may be.”
The Houston Rockets are the overwhelming favorites to sign Anthony after he hits free agency, a year removed from the impasse they had with the New York Knicks last summer after trying to trade for him.
Anthony will have to make some concessions with Chris Paul and James Harden spearheading the attack, but the hope is that the camaraderie and rapport he’s had with Paul over the years will help the latter orchestrate Melo into efficient spots on the floor where he can best display his scoring talents.
