    Carmelo Anthony cursed during rebounds to 'make this game fun'

    Carmelo Anthony cursed his way to and from the glass because he wanted to make rebounding fun — and it helped him break one of Charles Barkley's longstanding records. Anthony, the Knicks legend known best for his superstar scoring, picked up a reputation for his expletive-laden attempts to crash the glass and secure rebounds for his team over the course of his 19-year NBA career. The 10-time NBA All-Star and likely first-ballot Hall of Famer said his verbal assault on the boards — which almost always featured some variation of “f— out of here” directed either at an opponent or a teammate attempting to snake a rebound — helped him dominate on the glass, where he ultimately became Team USA's all-time Olympic rebounds leader.

    This Day in History: Carmelo Anthony Makes Trail Blazers Debut

    At this stage of the NBA season four years ago, the Portland Trail Blazers were a flailing 5-10 team, looking for any spark of life to turn things around. At the same moment, a 35-year-old Carmelo Anthony was over one year removed from playing in the league, desperately searching for a chance to prove he could still play. The two sides made for a nice match, and four years ago on this day, Nov. 19, 2019, Anthony made his Trail Blazers debut in a road game against the New Orleans Pelicans. The 10-time All-Star and future Hall-of-Famer put up 10 points on 4-14 shooting and five rebounds, and the Trail Blazers fell 115-104.
