Carmelo Anthony said he understands the pressure the NBA is under, after its decision to resume the season in late July.

The forward of the Portland Trail Blazers admitted, though, that he is excited for the resumption of the season and is looking forward to it.

“If we don’t get this right, this puts a dent in sports in America. Everybody’s looking to the NBA. The younger generation, the ones that have the voice right now, are the ones that are going to propel us forward and make the change,” Anthony told Bleacher Report’s Sean Highkin.
