After signing a non-guaranteed contract with the Portland Trailblazers a few weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony has proven to be a sudden impact player for their team.

Anthony is averaging 16.9 points and 5.9 rebounds while shooting 44.8% overall and 38.7% from 3-point range in 31.0 minutes.

Tiger Woods defends Phil Mickelson’s decision to play in Saudi Arabia
Rory McIlroy , a professional golfer from Northern Ireland has turned down the offer to play in Saudi Arabia next year. Woods declined an offer of around $3 million to play the upcoming Saudi event, according to ESPN .com.

It's a small sample size, but his shooting is a drastic improvement over his last full season in the National Basketball Association in 2017 that saw him shoot 40.4 percent from the field as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Hobbled by injuries of their own and desperate for a spark amid a 4-6 start six months after a Western Conference Finals run, the Blazers had nothing to lose.

Instead, it was the Portland Trail Blazers in November who, finally, made the gamble; who trusted that Anthony could once again be Melo. Anthony has made an estimated $249 million in salary over the course of his National Basketball Association career.
