Carmelo Anthony Says Thunder ‘Wasn’t a Good Fit’

Published

Now that Carmelo Anthony is likely on his way towards a buyout from the Atlanta Hawks so he can ink a deal with the Houston Rockets, Anthony is reflecting on his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“At the end of the day, it wasn’t a good fit,” Anthony said, according to ESPN’s Jemele Hill.

“I think last year — and I haven’t talked about this before — everything was just so rushed, going to the team for media day and the day before training camp. Them guys already had something in place, and then I come along in the 25th hour like, oh s%#t, Melo just come on and join us.

Like, you can figure it out since you’ve been around the game for a long time. That’s why it was so inconsistent. At times, I had to figure it out on my own rather than somebody over there or people over there helping me.”

Naturally, Anthony won’t admit that his lack of acceptance of a role that didn’t make him the focal point also was an issue, but Anthony didn’t seem like he wanted to fit with Oklahoma City.

Either way, both Anthony and the Thunder are better off now that the two have split.
