Rockets’ Carmelo Anthony Looking to Have Fun This Season

Houston Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony will be entering his 16th season in the NBA and the Rockets are hoping that Anthony is the missing piece that helps push them over the top for an NBA Championship.

Anthony, who was brought in this offseason after reaching a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks who acquired him from the Oklahoma City Thunder, is looking to have fun this upcoming season as he joins a promising Rockets team.

“Just enjoy the game and play basketball … I’ve been doing it for a long time,” Anthony said, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen. “I still know how to do it. I’ve just got to make it fun. The game just has to be fun.”

Anthony will play once again for head coach Mike D’Antoni, who coached him when the two were together with the New York Knicks several years back.

“He’s a great basketball player, so we just try to make it optimal for him and us,” D’Antoni said. “It’s always a little bit of a challenge, but if you had asked me the same question (last year) about James and Chris I would have said the same thing: ‘Well, it looks good. I’m excited.’ So same thing with him.”
