Stars of the NBA for over a decade, Chris Paul & Carmelo Anthony have acknowledged each others for years and are still actively putting up impressive numbers for their respective teams.
Both players have played for the Houston Rockets and they’ve had some interesting stories to share about the way they were let go.
“No, I wasn’t surprised at all,” said Carmelo Anthony. “When my situation happened in Houston, he was the first person that I called to come to my room. And we had to clear some things up, and I wanted to know if he had anything to do with it. And that was the first thing that I wanted to know, and he told me, No. And from that point on, I told him, looked him in his eyes and said, ‘Look, just be careful.’ You know what I mean? Just be careful. And damn sure if didn’t happen to him.”
At the time Paul was a member of the Houston Rockets along with Carmelo before he was traded away from the team 10 games into the season.
Carmelo has stepped his game up and earned a contract with the Portland Trail Blazers this allows him to get back into the game and move on past the situation with the Rockets.
“So that’s the new analytics. That’s the new game. Everything’s based off of your first 10 games. And once you know that, it gives you clarity on a lot of things.”
He appears to be in good spirits about the subject of knowing exactly what happened to him and the reason the Rockets decided to move away from the fan favorite forward.
