Carmelo Anthony’s Trade, Thompson Sets 3-Point Record, Harden’s New Stat Ties Chamberlain


The Carmelo circus continues. According to reports, the Houston Rockets will trade Carmelo Anthony to the Chicago Bulls, who will then waive Anthony so he can sign with another team. The Bulls will receive cash compensation in the trade, while the Rockets will save $2.6 million in luxury tax fees. Now the question is where will Anthony end up? There’s some talk he’ll go to the Lakers to be with his buddy, LeBron.

Golden State Warriors guard, Klay Thompson, set an NBA record Monday night hitting 10 straight 3-pointers to start the game. Thompson was on fire all night, finishing with 44 points and helping the Warriors cruise to a 130-111 victory over the LA Lakers.

The Houston Rockets James Harden continues to impress. In yet another night of scoring at least 30 points (his 20th consecutive), he answered questions about being in the same conversation as NBA great, Wilt Chamberlain (who is the only other player to have 30 plus points in 20 consecutive games), and said, it’s a “credit to the work that I put in”. Even with Harden’s impressive stats, the Rockets lost to the Philadelphia 76ers, 121-93.
