During Carmelo Anthony’s introductory press conference with his new team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, Anthony did everything to generate a buzz from rocking his signature hoodie to a few remarks.
The 33-year-old veteran stated he plans to play “the four” and was asked about the possibility of coming off the bench for his new team.
Carmelo asked how he would feel about coming off the bench: “Who me?!..Hey ‘P,’ (Paul George) they said I’ve gotta come off the bench!”

The 10-time All-Star’s contract probably helps dictate his fixture in the starting lineup as well as the 33-year old’s ability, even at this stage of his career.
But, Anthony showed his media prowess, from his years of dealing with the media in New York, right out of the gate for the Thunder.
