For the first time in Carmelo Anthony’s career, he might have to come off the bench for the Houston Rockets. Also for the first time in his career Carmelo has the self-awareness to not shoot down the idea of the bench.
When asked at Houston’s 2018 NBA Media Day, Carmelo stated that he “hasn’t had that conversation with anybody yet.” But he also didn’t shoot down the idea.
“At the end of the day, we’re all going to camp to figure out what works in order for this team to try to win a championship,”

Never forget what Carmelo had to say when asked about coming off the bench when he was traded to the Thunder last season:
Now the answers have become much more mature:
“All the questions of coming off the bench, I don’t want to answer those questions at the end of the day. Whatever I have to do to help this team win a championship, that’s what’s going to be done.”
Good for you, Melo. I will be rooting for you along the journey of your final chapter in the NBA.
