Retirement was on table for Anthony before Blazers called

Week 6 Giannis Carmelo named NBA Players of the Week

Despite the early success, Anthony told ESPN's Rachel Nichols on Tuesday that he was prepared to retire if he didn't land in the right situation. "So if I were just to go to a team and to a situation just to be on the team and it didn't work out, it was gonna come back on me anyway".

Even acknowledging that it's just been six games, and the Blazers haven't exactly faced a tough schedule, Anthony certainly looks like he belongs in the league. The veteran has averaged 17.7 points since his arrival, including games of 25 and 23 points in victories against the Chicago Bulls last week. The 35-year-old was named the Western Conference's Player of the Week on Monday thanks to a stretch in which he averaged 22.3 points and 7.7 rebounds and helped Portland go 3-0.

In a separate interview with TNT's Allie LaForce, Anthony credited honest dialogue with Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts and his own newfound humility for helping him adjust to the team's system. "I don't know what he's doin" on his side, but I would never put him, as a friend, as a brother, in that situation.

Following Anthony's signing with the Blazers, a report from Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated stated both the Brooklyn Nets and LA Clippers showed interest in the forward.

Last November, Carmelo Anthony and the Houston Rockets parted ways after just 10 lackluster games. "I have to get rid of my ego. It's just I have to humble myself", Anthony said. I have to get rid of my pride, but also approach the game differently.

"I feel good", Anthony said.

"I told those guys from the beginning, my big thing was, 'Just be transparent with me". This is what we expect of you.
