The NBA world received a surprise on Thursday night when it was reported that Carmelo Anthony was planning to sign with the Portland Trail Blazers.
Anthony played just 10 games with the Rockets last season and he hasn't been on an NBA court in over a year.
His return to the league received plenty of attention on social media, where his NBA colleagues were quick to welcome back the future Hall of Famer.
