Rachel Nichols sits down with Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony to talk about getting back into the NBA with Portland, the criticism he heard while he was out of the league, his feelings about the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder, the things Damian Lillard has said about him, his wife La La Anthony’s support and a special FaceTime moment with his son Kiyan, whether he will move to the bench if and when the team gets healthy, and whether his return is a retirement tour.
