Carmelo Anthony, after parting ways with the Portland Trailblazers this offseason, joined the Los Angeles Lakers when LeGM (LeBron James) personally handpicked and recruited him. He’s one of the few players from the Lakers’ veteran roster who got promoted in time when the team needed them. Carmelo Anthony has also proved that he is not washed and still has plenty of gas in the tank as he is able to get buckets as his pull up game is still strong enough. He showed his shooting prowess and driving skills against the San Antonio Spurs, but unfortunately fell on the losing side.
The San Antonio Spurs recently hosted the Los Angeles Lakers at the AT&T Center. After a hard fought and direct duel between the two. The San Antonio Spurs outshone the LeBron James less Los Angeles Lakers. As the final boxing score stands at 117-110. The supporting cast without LeBron James’ MVP Caliber performance did a good job, but a miss is put on the losing side. Currently, the Los Angeles Lakers are the ninth seed in the Western Conference with a record of 28 wins and 36 losses at .438, having won just two of their last 10 encounters.
Carmelo Anthony in the game lost 17 points, 1 assist, 7 rebounds and so did Romeo Langford. When he gave himself a highlight-worthy moment in the game. The clip of him embarrassing Spurs’ Romeo Langford has gone viral on the internet as no one expected him to show off his size while thinking he was washed and only good for a few minutes in the game.
