Carmelo Anthony Blazers vintage melo

Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony showed off his quick reflexes and smooth stroke on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers, turning back the clock in the process.

Anthony dazzled fans on Tuesday with his slick behind-the-back move en route to a drifting perimeter shot. NBA players are the best ballers in the world but Anthony proves why he’s considered one of the all-time greats.

Safe to say that Anthony has rejuvenated his career in Portland after the 2019 controversy with the Houston Rockets. In his second season with the Blazers, Anthony has been showing that he is can still be an effective scorer at 36-years-old.

He has embraced a bench role for the first time in his career, starting in just three games thus far. To recall, Anthony simply laughed off at the possibility of being relegated to the bench ahead of his stint with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

This became a subject of controversy as many analysts believe that Anthony was about the enter the twilight of his career. But here we are now. While Anthony’s prime days are over, we still get treated to the old Melo who has one of the deepest offensive arsenals that we’ve ever seen.
