Tracy McGrady thinks Carmelo should retire


Tracy McGrady recently made it very clear. Carmelo Anthony is ready for retirement based on his poor performance this season for the Houston Rockets.

There was a lot of criticism towards Carmelo in the last couple of weeks which resulted in him not playing for the team in the last couple of games. Other players in the NBA showed full support for Carmelo and stated on numerous occasions one player can't be the reason for a bad start to a season.

To be honest this is true so people are definitely riding the wave of using Carmelo as a scapegoat for some problems within the Rockets organization. Tracy McGrady, who was a former all-star player with the Rockets believes Carmelo should retire in order to end this negativity that is surrounding him.

“You know what? I honestly think Melo should retire, I really do,’’

While speaking for the “The Jump” with Rachel Nichols, McGrady said.

“I don’t want him to go through another situation like this, and people are just pouring negativity on this man’s legacy. I really think because it hasn’t worked out the last two teams, just go ahead and — you have a Hall of Fame career — just go ahead and let it go.’’

There are a lot of different reports about Carmelo's future with the Rockets. Even though it might be true the Rockets are looking to waive Carmelo, they should be also looking at a possibility to fit him better within the team system. Carmelo is still a good scorer who can drop 20 on any team with ease if he has his day. Of course, he will have to do his part on defense which wasn't looking good at all since the start of this season, but to be honest, Carmelo was never known as a defensive stopper.

It will be interesting to observe this situation moving forward that could potentially lead to an end of Carmelo's career.
