Lakers’ superstar LeBron James takes it to Twitter to appreciate his new teammate Carmelo Anthony for keeping on the grind and not giving up
LeBron James has had his fair share of teammates in his 18-year long illustrious career. However, I don’t think any team-up has made him as excited as the one that is about to happen next season. LeBron James finally has a chance to play with his banana boat teammate Carmelo Anthony.
Drafted 2 spots behind LeBron in the 2003 Draft, Melo had his own Hall-of-Fame worthy career in Denver and New York. However, things hit a rough patch when Melo signed with the Thunder. In the one season alongside Russell Westbrook and Paul George, Melo’s production took a major hit. He was traded to the Rockets the following season, who waived him off after some 10 games. However, when the Blazers gave Anthony a chance to redeem himself, he did not miss. He averaged 14.4 points, coming off the bench, in his two seasons with the Blazers.
LeBron James is happy that Carmelo Anthony did not give up
Often, when guys are in a situation like Carmelo Anthony was, they tend to give up. However, Melo did not. He simply couldn’t fathom what went wrong but kept true to his game, and surely, found his way back to the league.
In the latest episode of ‘The Shop’, Carmelo can be seen talking about how he kept himself motivated to work and to get back to the league. LeBron James saw the clip Melo shared on Twitter and had to add a few words for his brother. LBJ re-shared the same and captioned, “So DAMN happy you didn’t cave in my brother!! Keep going!!”
