Carmelo Anthony: ‘I was ready to walk away’ before Signing with Trail Blazers

Carmelo Anthony says he was prepared to walk away from the NBA if the Portland Trail Blazers hadn’t called and offered him a roster spot last month.

“I was ready to walk away, yeah,” Anthony said. “It was hard. But there came a point when I was, like, ‘You know what? I’ve given a lot to this game. I played 15, 16 years in this game. I’m ready to give it up, because I just knew that at that point in time from a basketball standpoint, that narrative that it — it was already out there. So I’d been fightin’ an uphill battle anyway if I didn’t go to the right situation.”
