Carmelo Anthony has gone from seemingly being forced into retirement to NBA Western Conference Player of the week. Melo was given the honor behind a week where he averaged 22.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 2.7 assists as he led the Portland Trailblazers to a 3-0 record during the week.
In that week, the Chicago Bulls were beaten twice by the Blazers and Melo also received the opportunity to stick it to his former team, the Oklahoma City Thunder.
During the week he received his first double-double since his return and the first since playing for the Thunder. This is the first time Melo was named Player of the Week since March 10, 2014, when he was wearing the blue and orange fo the New York Knicks.
Celebration for Melo poured in from across the basketball world and he even chimed in on the achievement. You can see all of that below.
