While some NBA fans out there have been worried that their favorite players might return to the court out of shape and even gain too many lbs following a four-month layoff, Trail Blazers veteran Carmelo Anthony did the exact opposite.
In various photos and videos circulating the interwebs, NBA fans are taking notice of a slimmer Melo.
Clearly, Anthony took advantage of quarantine and worked on his body. Maybe it’s because he knew he would be earning a lot more small forward minutes instead of being the stretch four for the Blazers with Trevor Ariza not returning for the restart.
Melo is looking like a more finesse player with this physique; a perfect look for the three, even if he has been pitching the idea lately that the NBA is positionless.
Fans even think the 17-year veteran looks 10 years younger now and former players took notice as well.
