Oh, how the nostalgic excitement of visualizing the reunion of old teammates makes a person feel deep down inside is just a amazing feeling. Just ask Nene.
Apparently, the 18-year big man from Brazil may have let the “cat out of the bag” to hoop fans worldwide yesterday. Nene took to his Twitter and Instagram about exciting news that Carmelo Anthony will be joining the Rockets this upcoming season. It seems like the Knicks and Houston have come up with an deal to ship the 10-time NBA All Star back to the Western Conference and to join forces with an lethal scoring arsenal of Harden, CP3 and Eric Gordon. In addition, Melo will be reuniting with his former teammate Nene after they spent roughly 8 seasons together in Denver hooping for George Karl and the Nuggets.

If the deal is true, expect the #KnicksTape to go bonkers as Melo was a huge fan favorite night in and night out for the Knicks. But with Melo joining an already stacked squad that featured an runner up MVP candidate in James Harden, league Coach Of The Year Mike D’Antoni is going to be tickled with the amount of scoring options he can go to during the regular season.
