After the public quarrel with the Rockets, Anthony once fell into a very difficult situation, almost no one asked. Many people speculated that his NBA career had come to an early end. Even Anthony himself admitted that he had begun to retire.
At such a difficult time, the pioneers extended an olive branch to Anthony, saved Anthony, and gave Anthony a chance to return to the NBA.
Since joining the blazers on November 20 last year, Anthony has played a very important role in 58 games for the Blazers, averaging 32.8 minutes per game, scoring 15.4 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
Not only that, Anthony also actively let himself lose weight, looking for changes in playing methods to adapt to the change of age and the needs of the team. There was a video of Anthonys training earlier, in which he kept a good figure, looked very thin, and trained very hard.
