It’s still a little odd for NBA fans to see Carmelo Anthony in an Oklahoma City Thunder jersey, especially so if you’re a Knicks fan and have watched the 11-time All-Star for 6 years. However, according to the man himself, he’s loving life in OKC.
Dubbed one of the new super teams of the West, with a roster containing Melo, Westbrook, and George, OKC hasn’t quite hit the heights expected of them so far this season. Yet, in a recent in-depth interview with Complex, Melo explains that “things are definitely going in the right direction.” The Big Three dynamic means that the OKC players are definitely under the spotlight and that’s something that Anthony is only too aware of saying that, “things get highlighted more than if you were on a team that wasn’t so good.”
Aside from talking about his new settings, Melo, an American of Puerto Rican descent, was keen to discuss Foot Locker’s upcoming “Week of Greatness” and this year’s Sole4Souls campaign that will focus on providing aid to Puerto Rico. The Carribean island that was struck by Hurricane Maria earlier this year was personally chosen by Melo to be the focus of this year’s project. The star stated that giving back “through Foot Locker and being able to donate a pair of sneakers or shoes goes a long way.”
