Veteran forward Carmelo Anthony is happy to be back in the league, and he’s thankful for the Portland Trail Blazers giving him the opportunity. With the New York Knicks, Anthony’s former team, in town, MSG Networks caught up with the former New York star about his new team:

“I always feel like this situation happened for a reason. I think it’s a perfect fit for me, my game, my personality, those guys’ personalities, those guys’ games — it’s a perfect match. I keep saying this, it’s very authentic, it’s very genuine. Nobody’s forcing anything. It’s happening naturally.”

Anthony is currently averaging 15.9 points per game in 11 games with the Blazers. He scored 16 points against his former team Tuesday night.
