Remember those times when the Portland Trail Blazers tried to make Carmelo Anthony a Trail Blazer? Finally, they have succeeded.

Now, Anthony will sign a non-guaranteed deal with the Portland Trail Blazers according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Furthermore, Anthony will try to propel the Trail Blazers to an NBA title; joining forces with Damian Lillard. Some might wonder what kind of shape that Anthony is in. He hasn’t played in the NBA in over a year. Notably, Anthony talked about his conditioning in August when he said this to Stephen A. Smith.

“I’m in the gym every single day,” Anthony said. He also noted that “silence is not my surrender” and that he had been quiet until then because he felt he needed to step away from the game to “reevaluate myself, reevaluate my career, reevaluate my life.”

Anthony is a 10-time All-Star and six-time All-NBA player. Most recently, he played for the Houston Rockets in the early part of 2018. If that seems like a long time ago, consider that Anthony’s best season was in 2012-2013 for the New York Knicks. Indeed, that was the year he won the league scoring title with 28.7 points per game. Also, that was was the last time the Knicks made the playoffs.

Anthony will try to end his career on a high note in Portland – it seems like just yesterday he was winning a national title at Syracuse and entering the NBA to challenge Lebron James for the best player perenially. When you look at it that way, it seems forever ago that he started out.
