Carmelo Anthony’s NBA career has been filled with highs and lows, but if it’s one thing we’ve learned, you can never count Melo out.
From the 3rd overall pick in 2003 to questions if his career was over in 2019 before joining the Portland Trailblazers, Melo has been through it all. In the 2 years since, we thought he was done for good, but he’s now back in the game he loves and focused on a championship.
