It was disrespectful for Carmelo Anthony to be out of the league, says Brooklyn Nets’ Iman Shumpert.

Per Landon Buford of Heavy.com:

“I thought it was disrespectful for him to be out of the league anyway. That’s my guy I used to have to get him Skittles, that he didn’t eat, said Shumpert.”

“Got him coffee that he didn’t drink and made sure the man’s bags and shoes were off the plane. All types of dumb stuff, but Melo [Carmelo Anthony] taught me a lot. Out of everybody, I knew that he might not be ideal for the new game, but acting like he should be removed from this game. I didn’t think it was respectful at all.”
