Carmelo Anthony Fires Back At Fan Who Calls Him Overweight On Instagram


As things currently stand Carmelo Anthony does not have an NBA team to play for. He started the season playing for the Houston Rockets but was waived after 10 games after the Rockets started the season 4-6. He is currently still working out hoping to get a call from a franchise so that he doesn’t have to retire.

Obviously, since he isn’t currently playing he has a lot of time to go on social media as evidenced by his recent comments on an Instagram post from the account @idontgetbuckets. Someone called Keith Zollinger commented on a post of Carmelo saying “He's been overweight his entire career”. Obviously put out by the comments Melo responded. “@keithzollinger shut the f*ck up. What are u talking about? You sound ridiculous."

Carmelo is listed at 240 lbs and has been that weight for most of his career. He’s now 34 and will be 35 in May of next year. His current career average of 24 points per game ranks him 20th all time and he’s scored over 25,000 points thus far. Hopefully, Melo stays in shape so that he can get back to court and retire when he chooses.
