Foul On The Play?: Houston Rockets and Carmelo Anthony Part Ways, #NBATwitter Has Thoughts

Twitter Reacts To The Houston Rockets Parting Ways With Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony can’t seem to catch a break. The Carmelo Anthony x Houston Rockets experiment has come to a very disappointing end—leaving the future Hall-of-Famer’s career in limbo.

NBA Twitter has some serious thoughts about the matter. The “Melodrama” continues.

Who would have thought Carmelo’s career would end up going in a direction like this? We wouldn’t be surprised if the answer to that question was not many or anyone at all. ESPN’s Senior NBA Insider, Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news of the Rockets deciding to move on from Anthony.

Right on cue, the speculations of where the aging superstar might land could be heard with some saying his best choices would either be the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers or Philadelphia 76’ers. While he hasn’t gotten any immediate offers from NBA teams, JJ Barea did offer Melo a chance to join the Puerto Rican National Team. But there is one person who feels Melo should just pack it up and ride off into the sunset.

Retired NBA superstar and now ESPN analyst Tracy McGrady believes Carmelo should retire. While some like his best buddies Chris Paul and LeBron James feels he still has something left in the tank, McGrady thinks that he is no longer the primary scoring option for any team and being put in a player/coach lesser bench role has no appeal to him. If Melo’s situation sounds familiar to you it should because it does bear a resemblance to how Allen Iverson’s stubbornness to accept a bench or diminished role eventually pushed him out of the league.

Regardless of how this situation pans out Carmelo Anthony is still one of the best players to step on an NBA court. That is one thing they can never take away from him, we hope the situation pans out for him. Hit the gallery below to see the reactions to Carmelo’s short tenure with the Houston Rockets coming to an end.

LeBron Passes Wilt Chamberlain NBA All-Time Scoring List, Jordan Next & Twitter Reacts

Celebrities At The Los Angeles Lakers Game

LeBron James is already one of the greatest basketball players to ever grace the court. He continued to make that case last night when he climbed passed the great Wilt Chamberlain on the all-time scoring list.

New team, same greatness.

LeBron has his work cut out for him this season as he tries to lead the meme team to greatness and put the Los Angeles Lakers on top of the NBA pedestal. While on that journey he’s gonna be cementing his legacy and last night he did it grand fashion.

In a Lakers win over the Portland Trailblazers where we saw the 33-year-old star flirt with his side-chick ole trip dub dropping 44 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists very efficiently. His herculean effort earned him 31,420 career points putting him fifth on the all-time scoring list passing Wilt The Stilt’s 31,419 and was the best scoring performance for a Laker since Kobe’s majestic final game where he dropped 60.

With Wilt Chamberlain out of the way, James is now knocking on the G.O.A.T, Michael Jordan’s door which is next on the list with 32,292. He only needs 868 points this season to jump over the Jumpman, and it’s a safe bet to assume he will do so this season.

The always humble kid from Akron had this to say about the achievement:

“One of the most dominant forces we ever had in our game along with Shaq,” James said of Chamberlain. “One of the greatest Lakers ever to play the game. One hundred point scorer. One of the greatest scorers, rebounders to ever play this game. Multi-sport/dimensional type of athlete. People had never seen something like that in that era. So just dominant in all walks of life, not only just basketball but period.”

“I don’t know how I feel right now, I’m happy we were able to get another win. But any time my name is mentioned with some of the greats that have played this game, I always think back to my hometown, where I come from and how far I’ve come.”

While rings seem to be the standard in crowning greatness, there should be no argument when people put LeBron on the Mt.Rushmore of NBA greats. See the reaction to LeBron’s feat in the gallery below. Oh and to add just how great of a person he is he donated the ball and jersey to his I Promise School.

Floyd Mayweather Comes Out of Retirement To Fight Japanese Kickboxer, Combat Sports Twitter Confused

Floyd Mayweather Comes Out Retirement To Fight Japanese Kickboxer

Floyd Mayweather Jr. might be undefeated in the ring, but he can’t seem to beat retirement. The 42-year-old pugilist has announced his return to the ring but his next opponent, a Japanese kickboxer has Twitter confused.

Does Floyd need the money? Or is he just bored? That’s what everyone is wondering when “the best ever” announced out of nowhere earlier today that on New Year’s Eve his next opponent will be a 20-year-old and also undefeated kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan. Floyd hasn’t been inside of a ring since he easily dispatched UFC bad boy Conor McGregor last year.

Floyd has been flirting with unretiring hinting at either a rematch with Manny Pacquiao or a match with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Being the great salesman that he is, Mayweather said this about his about his decision to step in a Rizin ring during this morning’s press conference:

“It wasn’t easy to make this happen. But we told the people anything is possible, so now we’re here, and we want to make sure that we give the people in Tokyo what they want to see: blood, sweat, and tears.”

Mayweather’s upcoming opponent Nasukawa is a complete unknown to the western sports world but based on his record should not be taken likely at all. The boxer who makes a living out of embarrassing his opponents in the ring might have finally met his match if he has to abide by either kickboxing or MMA rules so this fight may definitely take a lot more of hard work and dedication.

Twitter, of course, is just as confused as to why Floyd is even going this route and has some folks hilarious hinting at who Floyd’s next opponent will be after this fight. You can see the reactions to Floyd’s decision in the gallery below.
