Nene of the Houston Rockets has heaped praise on his new teammate Carmelo Anthony.
"He can be whatever he wants to be. He's talented. It doesn't matter how old he is. When he commits to do the right thing and they use his talent, man get out of the way. Simple as that. For me he's a top-10 player in the league, still.”
Melo has just signed for the Houston to play with Chris Paul and James Harden and people are wondering just how effective he will be with the Rockets given how ineffective he was with OKC.
Melo only averaged 16 points a game last year in the system that just wasn’t set up for his to thrive. Now he’s with Mike D’Antoni, Harden and CP3 who are 3 of the top offensive minds in the NBA. Whether Melo starts or comes off the bench he has a great chance to be effective again with his rapid release and bag of tricks on the offensive end.
Melo is now 34 so time is running out for him to compete for his first title, can his skillset elevate that Rockets over the Warriors or will it be another disappointing season for him once again?
I can’t wait to find out.
