The Warriors announcer is a bit off on this one.
Carmelo’s three-point celebration is not unique, hell Steph Curry does it. I don’t know why the originator of it is (even though Darius Miles comes to mind), but it is a REACH to say this.
Former player Kelenna Azubuike, now part of the Warriors’ broadcast team, wasn’t too thrilled with Ball celebrating a three-pointer like Carmelo Anthony and promptly called him out.
“That celebration, he’s doing three fingers to the head like Carmelo Anthony. I know they’re both Melo but come up with your own celebration, be original,” Azubuike said after the young player drained a triple.
LaMelo got wind of this and pointed out he’s been doing this since middle school, so it isn’t new or stolen.
Seems like a little hate from Mr. Azubuike.
