Carmelo Anthony wants his own Dwyane Wade farewell tour

Carmelo Anthony wants his own Dwyane Wade farewell tour”

In 10 games with the Rockets, Anthony averaged 13.4 points.

The 35-year-old has not played in the National Basketball Association since he was moved on from the Houston Rockets after a brief 10-game stint last season and according to his trainer Chris Brickley, Melo is "100 percent" National Basketball Association ready and wants to go out on his own terms with a farewell tour. Along the way, he received countless accolades across the league, a season-long celebration that culminated with a final tribute before the Heat's final home game of the season.

"If you remember, (Iverson) kind of got, some people say, blackballed". I think teams are afraid of, 'I want to be the star, ' or 'I want this.' That's not the case, though. Melo just wants to have a farewell season, do what D-Wade did. Do the jersey swap. "He's a Hall of Famer, so hopefully, that can happen". Houston traded Anthony to the Chicago Bulls in January and the Bulls waived him shortly thereafter.

To get the opportunity for that final season, Anthony would presumably have to accept a veteran's minimum deal, the same type of contract that Wade played under last season. Even if you want to say that was too small of a sample size, his numbers over a whole season with the Thunder weren't much better, clocking in at 40.4 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from 3-point range.

While Lillard doesn't think that's an acceptable ending for one of the best players of the era, he doesn't think the Trail Blazers can bring Anthony in.

He also ranks 1st in games played (31), points (336), FGs made (113), FGs attempted (262), rebounds (125), free throws made (53) and he's 2nd in 3-pointers (57).
