Oklahoma City Thunder star Carmelo Anthony is going to have to play power forward to start alongside Paul George and Steven Adams in the front court. Anthony played small forward for most of his career in New York. Despite a change coming, Anthony said he’s more than comfortable playing the PF.
“I’ve been playing the 4 almost all my career. Even in Denver, we was one of those teams with George Karl, kinda started going playing that small ball, putting me at the 4, picking up the pace. We kind of started that. And the league wasn’t ready for that at that time. It was all about traditional bigs and power forwards and centers. And now, it’s just whoever. You have 2-guards playing center now, guys 6-foot-5 playing center. So, it really doesn’t matter at what position it is, what spot out there, as long as you fill those spots, as long as you know the offense, as long as you execute, those positions, they don’t matter.”
The Thunder will have a great chance to compete for a title if Anthony, George and Russell Westbrook work well together.
