Carmelo Anthony made an official introduction of himself to the Los Angeles Lakers fans during a press conference. Among the topics discussed by the 37-year-old power forward was him joining forces with LeBron James.
“I think timing is everything. I mean for years we’ve always laughed about it and spoke about it what it would be like,” Melo said when talking about teaming up with LeBron. “We had a little bit of experience with the USA Basketball and playing together but that’s totally different than in situation like this.
“But we’ve always talked about it, laughed and joked about it. I thought and he thought at this moment now everything comes back full circle for us. Then I think the time is now for us to be on the same team. I couldn’t have came at a better time.”
Anthony spent the past two seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers. This past season, he averaged 13.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
