Carmelo Anthony and the Rockets are parting ways after a very short stint. The Miami Heat and Puerto Rican national team are among the clubs interested in his services now.
Former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas wasted no time in trying to clown Melo for his departure from Houston. Arenas posted a video to Instagram of a big man in what seems to be a pickup game trying to launch a three pointer but missed badly. The caption in the IG post read “Houston had my man @carmeloanthony out there forcing 3’s to fit in #makeItrain #raindrops ????????????????????♂️ #teammelo #teamlakeshow.”
Losing Trevor Ariza to Phoenix in free agency definitely was a huge defensive liability and Melo could not fill that void. It’ll be interesting to see which team picks him up over the next week. Flip the page for Gilbert Arenas’ thoughts on Carmelo Anthony’s time with the Rockets coming to an end.
