Carmelo Anthony has passed his debut match with the Portland Trail Blazers. He looked different this time. Anthony is no longer wearing jersey number 7 but 00.
There are 11 reasons why he chose the number. Through his Instagram account, the 35-year-old forwarda revealed everything. According to him, the number 00 represents one of the impermanent symbols (∞), without end, a process that never stops.
Anthony also said that his new number was the beginning and end as well as alpha and omega. He tried to show his identity through numbers. However, the debut did not take place smoothly. Blazers lost at the hands of Pelicans.
Anthony appeared for 23 minutes 37 seconds. He scored 10 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block. Unfortunately, the acquisition was tarnished by five mistakes which resulted in a counterattack for the opponent ( turnover ).
Anthony’s shot percentage is also low. He only put 4 out of 14 shots (28.5 percent). However, the tripoin is quite good with 2 in 3 trials.
Anthony himself has just signed a partnership with Blazers. He got a one-year non-guaranteed contract worth US $ 2.15 million. According to Sham Charania’s report, The Atheletic, Anthony could change his contract into a guarantee if he could stay in the squad until January.
After this, Anthony and his team will continue their journey in the 2019-2020 NBA. They must face Milwauke Bucks the day after tomorrow. Blazers currently have a 5-10 record. They are stranded on the bottom board. (put)
