This week on his weekly YouTube show “What’s In Your Glass” Carmelo Anthony let it be known he hasn’t given any thought to a farewell tour of any sort.
Melo was joined on the show by Jamie Foxx, and dude wasn’t messing around when it came to asking Melo about his NBA future, promptly asking the question that’s on everyone’s mind:
“How long do you think you’ll play?”
Here’s Melo’s response:
“Honestly, I really don’t know… I haven’t even like [thought] — ‘you know what — this is it.’ You know, what I’m saying?” It wasn’t like, ‘oh I wanted to come back and oh, I want a farewell tour and all.”
The 10-time All-Star seems to be focused on playing for as long as he is able to get on the court.
In 50 games with the Blazers this season, Melo is averaging 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds over 32.5 minutes per game while shooting 42.6 percent from the floor, 37.1 percent from three-point range and 84.3 percent from the free-throw line.
It wasn’t his best season but solid production for a player who was out the league for close to a year and rapidly approaching 36 years of age.
