After 6 grueling seasons with the Knicks, Carmelo Anthony has found himself in OKC with superstar teammates and a real chance to compete to be an NBA Champ. If achieved, we can all stop clowning Melo for saying stuff like winning the Olympics is equivalent to winning an NBA title. We all know that’s true and can’t imagine that Melo actually believes it. It’s the stuff he tells himself at night to feel better, since his besties LeBron and Wade both have rings.
Factually speaking Melo never really had another superstar beside him with the Knicks and is most likely mentally programmed into thinking that he has to do it all for his team. This holds so true that House of Highlights cause video of Melo telling teammates and opponents alike to “get the f*ck outta here” when grabbing rebounds. And it’s not just a one-time thing. Melo seems to do this all the time.
Maybe one day Melo will stop thinking he’s Atlas having to hold the world on his shoulders. In the meantime we can sit back and giggle as Melo yells at everyone on the court for his rebound stats.
