Rockets and Carmelo Anthony 'parting ways'

Rockets and Carmelo Anthony 'parting ways'

Speaking publicly for the first time since his explosive outburst, Green said he spoke with Kevin Durant and the two are moving forward.

It's unclear what's next for Anthony, but Chris Paul, who has always been friends with him, knows he'll be OK.

Anthony played just 10 games after signing a one-year, $2.4 million deal during the offseason.

Durant was in no mood to discuss their relationship after the game, saying: "Don't ask me about that again", before turning away from the reporter who posed the question.

Names like Carmelo Anthony's can sound good out loud but in reality, he would turn the Blazers into a four-headed monster of a team with no bite on either side of the ball.

Haynes reports it was a comment along those lines that was the cause of Green's one-game suspension he served during Tuesday's win over the Hawks. "It's no secret I am an emotional player, I wear my emotions on my sleeve and I play with those same emotions. We won without. Leave". You know, sometimes it gets the best of me and it don't work in my favor.I'm gonna live with that, because it works to my favor to the good as my resume speaks and to this team's resume speaks. We're not going to beat us. You know at the end of the day, as i've said before, whatever Kevin decides to do, whatever Klay decides to do, you know we had great years together and I support everybody wholeheartedly 100%. We're going to continue doing what we do.

He added that he believes the incident will only make the team stronger.

There was a point during the argument when Durant cringed, and that was when it went from a typical competitive basketball argument to a personal shot that cut deep, sources said. "We're going to be very, very careful, and obviously he's going to need plenty of court time before he returns", Kerr said.
