Former NBA player Chauncey Billups explains why forward Carmelo Anthony isn’t in the NBA:
“I feel bad for Melo and here’s why. Melo’s was like a good teammate, man. Melo practiced every day. Didn’t miss any games. Now, the one thing I will say – and I’ve even told Melo this – scoring 30 meant too much to Melo. But, now I think you fast forward the tape, and the reason he’s not in the league – because he’s still mentally worthy – he hasn’t taken that set back to say ‘Okay, I’ll come in and play against back-ups. I’ll try to help the team out. I know I might not be able to close, but I just want to help the team out. He’s not there yet,” Billups said.
