Carmelo Anthony to start first game for Portland, apparently thinks he’s wearing number infinity
Carmelo Anthony will wear No. 00 with the Trail Blazers.
Apparently because 00 kind of looks like ∞.
Somewhere, Kyrie Irving is nodding in support.
In terms of numbers that make sense…
Marc J. Spears of ESPN:
New Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony is expected to play about 20 minutes tonight in his season-debut at New Orleans, a source said.— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpears) November 19, 2019
That’s a sizable role for a 35-year-old in his first game in more than a year. But Portland needs scoring with Damian Lillard sidelined, and – at last check (though, again, a while ago), Anthony was accustomed to big minutes.
Besides, we all want ample opportunity to see Anthony back on the court after his lengthy absence.
