When Carmelo Anthony was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder, a number of questions quickly emerged about his fit with the team. Many wondered how he would co-exist with their two other stars, Russell Westbrook and Paul George, especially all three of them already used to being the focal point of a team’s offense. What position he’ll play at was also on a lot of people’s minds as he and George are both naturals at the small forward spot, which could be an issue as next season progresses.

However, Anthony made it clear Monday during media day, via Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman, that he is open to play at the four spot. He then added that he is looking to contribute more than just rebounding, but not to outshine his two new teammates.

Despite being 33 years old now, the 10-time All-Star is still one of the best scorers in the league today. He can score in different ways, as he can knock down shots from the beyond the arc, and is also very crafty near the basket. His versatility on both ends of the floor will benefit the Thunder a lot, and will allow head coach Billy Donovan to field in different combinations as well.

Anthony’s comments are definitely good news for the Oklahoma City faithful, as it shows a lot of maturity, and that he is a team player. If he will stay true to his words, it will be a huge boost to the Thunder, who are looking to make a lot of noise in the Western Conference, and prove that they are a serious title contender.
