Video: Blazers’ Carmelo Anthony nails three-pointer, does signature celebration at camera vs. Bucks
Carmelo Anthony, NBA legend and 16-year veteran, now finds himself on his fifth NBA team after signing with the frontcourt-depleted Portland Trail Blazers.
Though Melo was inefficient in his first game with Portland (10 points on 14 shot attempts), the Blazers truthfully need his offense – especially with Damian Lillard sitting out the past two games due to a minor back injury.
Perhaps Melo isn’t quite the dominating score that he once was with the Nuggets or the Knicks, but he does still have a signature move on the court, which involves him hitting a three-pointer and sticking three fingers to his dome, which he was able to do against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Blazers game on Thursday night:

Melo, who is currently 22nd in NBA history in points scored with 25,561, will likely look to pad those numbers with Portland, as the team is desperate for offense to help extricate themselves from a 5-10 start to the 2019-20 season.
