It is lit! Basketball fans got excited and talked about Carmelo Anthony all day after news broke that he was going to bring his talents to the golden state! The 18-year-old veteran left the Portland Trailblazers after two seasons and left as a free agent, but he has a new home as of today. According to ESPN, Melo signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers!
ESPN shared on Twitter after Melos agent Bay Frazier confirmed the news. Shortly afterwards, Melo also went to his Instagram account to share the news. The fans of the baller were so excited that Melo started trending on Twitter. Many mentioned that this is his first time playing on a team with LeBron James. If you’re familiar with the shooters, you know the two have been close friends for years, since they were drafted into the NBA in 2003.
According to CBS Sports, Bleacher Report’s LeBron Howard Beck said back in 2016 that he would cut his salary to play with Melo, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul. The Lakers are working overtime with their new squad as Melo isn’t the only new addition to the team. Russell Westbrook, Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis will wear the iconic purple and gold uniforms.
Dwight, who previously played formally for the team, is back for the third time. Yesterday he also shared the news on Instagram. In a post titled “Let’s bring it back. #iwantmyparadedammit “, over 15,000 people commented on the news.
