Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James claimed the NBA gave up on Carmelo Anthony, but Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard disagrees.

Anthony who is now a Laker, spent two seasons with the Blazers after being out of the league for most of the 2018-19 season.

Lillard, who brought Anthony to Portland, greeted the future Hall of Famer in a freestyle performance.

Following James’ comments, fans tweeted the video to show that there were people in the league who wanted Anthony on their team, which Lillard liked.

Lillard and The Blazers certainly miss the former All-Star as they started 2-2 without him this season.

Anthony made a solid goal presence for the Blazers in both of his seasons there, but he’s now featured in the Lakers offensive.

In five games this season, Anthony plays 27.8 Weds utes per game for the Lakers and tries 11.2 shots per night.

The 10-time All-Star averages 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game this season.

He was an efficient shooter from beyond the bow as he shoots 43.3 percent for the season.

The Lakers made a 2-3 start but they also lost James for two games to an ankle injury .

Anthony and James will face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. The competition is scheduled to start at 7.30 p.m. PST.
