Carmelo Anthony FaceTimes With Son From Lala’s Phone After Making NBA History Against Bulls [VIDEO]

NBA vet, Carmelo Anthony recently made his well deserved return to the court, signing a non-guaranteed deal with the Portland Trail Blazers nearly two weeks ago. In the team’s road game against Carmelo’s former team, the Chicago Bulls on Monday (Nov. 25th), Melo took an unexpected Facetime call from his 12-year-old son, Kiyan. In a video, his wife actress, Lala Anthony made sure to hold the Facetime call in the direction of the 10-time NBA All-Star during a timeout. After taking a peek over to his wife, Melo gave his son the cutest mid-timeout salute.

As previously reported, Lala reacted to the news of Melo’s long awaited signing with Portland in a heartfelt post, sharing a photo with Kiyan and his Dad.

Following the Blazers‘ timeout, Melo went into his clutch mode, as the veteran power forward finished the game while snapping the Blazer’s four game losing streak with 25 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists.

During Melo’s comeback victory, he received “Bring Back Melo” chants from his former team who never had the opportunity to see the NBA in action. Melo says,

“That support, that was the most important thing to hear that tonight. From fans, that’s Chicago Bulls fans, with me on a whole other team… Those fans didn’t have to do that.”

In his first 20+ point game of his season, Melo passed Alex English for 18th on the all-time NBA scoring list. He acknowledged his milestone performance stating:

Melo’s recent signing follows his short tenor with the Houston Rockets, playing in just 10 games before being shipped in a trade to the Bulls and subsequently waived. The Blazers have tried at different times in the past to add Anthony and made an attempt to acquire him when he was with the New York Knicks.
Congratulation Melo!
