Carmelo Anthony wants all of you to stop trying to push him toward early retirement. Speaking with Shams Charania of The Athletic, Melo stated he is not making this run with the Portland Trailblazers a “farewell tour.”

“This ain’t a damn farewell tour,” Anthony said about his new team. “My love for the game don’t stop. I don’t know where this ‘farewell tour’ thing came from. I’ve never talked about a farewell tour. I know what I can do and I believe in myself. When a farewell tour comes, it comes. That’s not something I think about. I’m not thinking about retiring right now.”

Melo hit the United Center in Chicago Monday Night and poured in 25 points on 50% shooting, which included a dunk over Bulls second-year big Wendell Carter Jr. If you ask Melo he says “I’m starting to get my feel and my flow back.”
