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.
Thunder Asking Price Steep for Steven Adams
As the Oklahoma City Thunder look to create some cap relief, they are shopping big man Steven Adams, but don’t seem to be finding any takers.
According to Matt George of 1140 KHTK, Oklahoma City’s asking price for Adams is viewed as “too high.”
Moving Adams won’t be easy as he is owed more than $53 million for the next two seasons in his contract.
Adams is coming off a season in which he scored 13.9 points per game, 9.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists for the Thunder last season.
Thunder Shopping Steven Adams, Andre Roberson, Dennis Schroder, 21st Pick
The Oklahoma City Thunder are shopping a ton of assets in an effort to clear some salary space.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Jake Fischer, the Thunder are making center Steven Adams, Andre Roberson and point guard Dennis Schroder available, in addition with the 21st pick in the draft, in an effort to shed salary.
Oklahoma City currently has nearly $140 million guaranteed for the 2019-20 season, above the luxury tax threshold.
Blazers’ Damian Lillard Discusses Game Winning Shot
In the ultimate last work towards the trash talking Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard hit a ridiculous, buzzer-beating 3-point shot to eliminate the Thunder on Tuesday.
The shot will live on for an eternity and Lillard took time to discuss the dagger that sent the talking Russell Westbrook and his team packing.
“I was blanking out,” Lillard said, according to Jason Quick of The Athletic. “I was having my own thoughts. I was … angry. Not that type of anger like I was mad, but anger like I was in a rage.”
