A few months ago, Carmelo Anthony went on television and made his case to get signed.

His public-relations campaign went nowhere. Anthony remains a free agent.


I wouldn’t rule out a team signing Anthony, but he’s facing an uphill battle. He was lousy with the Thunder, worse with the Rockets and is now 35 years old.

Maybe Anthony is still talented enough to play in the NBA. I’m unconvinced. He might have just aged out of the league. But the way he blames everyone else for his problems, he won’t get much benefit of the doubt from executives.
