I've given a lot to this game.

"I was ready to walk away, yeah", Anthony said.

CJ McCollum scored 20 points, Hassan Whiteside had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Damian Lillard added 16 points on 5-of-15 shooting for the Blazers, whose three-game winning streak ended. "And I had prepared myself to kinda just walk away from the game - if the right situation didn't come about". I'm ready to give it up, because I just knew that, at that point in time from a basketball standpoint, that narrative.it was already out there.

The Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony was named Western Conference Player of the Week after helping lead the team to a 3-0 record last week.

Carmelo Anthony's return to the National Basketball Association is barely two weeks old, and he's already being recognized for his strong play.

The 10-time All-Star says being named Player of the Week is more about his "commitment to the game".

Since Anthony arrived, the Blazers have gone 3-3. He was then traded to the Chicago Bulls but was waived without playing a game for them. If you want me to do X, Y, Z, I don't have no problem with doing it. No, I've always been against all odds. "I had a year off restin' my body".

Anthony averaged over 22 points and nearly eight rebounds in three games last week -- wins over the Bulls twice and the Thunder once.

The former No. 3 overall draft pick in 2003 has played for the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Rockets and Blazers.
