As the NBA season approaches the halfway mark, everyone is preparing for All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Teams have been selected and tickets have been snatched up quickly as well. All-Star Weekend is set for this Friday through Sunday as players have arrived in New Orleans, plus one… The 10-time All-Star, Carmelo Anthony!
After being cut short on being selected for this year’s Eastern Conference reserve, news revealed that Anthony will replace the injured Cavaliers’ Power Forward Kevin Love, who had suffered a knee injury in last weeks game. “Melo” is a fan favorite and people are indeed expecting a worth while performance since he was the first in mind for Commissioner David Stern to select. In the 2016 All-Star game, Anthony set the game-record for made-3pt field goals with 13 in hopes of notching that record in the 2017 event.
Off the Court, Melo has been in deep suspense with rumors of trade and disagreement with the New York Knicks management and President, Phil Jackson. Words had been exchanged publicly through social media and in post game interviews between the two but only time will tell what is to make of this possible breakup.
Tune in all weekend long as All-Star weekend is a must-see event! (8 P.M. Eastern Time on TNT)
