Carmelo Anthony literally laughs off idea of coming off the bench

By Vincent Frank

In his first press conference as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Carmelo Anthony provided some pretty awesome sound bites.

Though, nothing comes close to his reaction when a reporter asked Melo what he thought about the idea of coming off the bench.

If you didn’t join Anthony in laughing at that question, we’re not too sure what to tell you. Notice how he calls out Paul George when responding? Tremendous stuff from Anthony here.

The likelier scenario than a future Hall of Famer coming off the bench is that Anthony will start next to George at the four this upcoming season. It’s definitely a small-ball lineup, one that could potentially work wonders against the three-time defending Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors.

Even then, don’t expect Anthony to pull an Andre Iguodala and somehow decide it’s in the team’s best interest to play the role of super-sub. That’s obviously not happening.
