Former Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks star - Carmelo Anthony - has been in decent form this NBA season having signed for the Portland Trail Blazers on November 19. The NBA veteran has been consistent on the road with the Trail Blazers and with some promising stats to back that up as well. In five games for Portland, Carmelo Anthony has averaged 16.6 points and 5.0 rebounds. No wonder Blazers' fans have flocked to the club's official store and stocked up on Carmelo Anthony jerseys.

Thirty-four-year-old Carmelo Anthony turned back the clock as he put in a brilliant performance in the win against OKC on home turf. In Portland Trail Blazers' last match, dropping 25 points on the Chicago Bulls as his side made their way to a 117-94 win. The Melo craze has definitely hit Portland in recent weeks. However, the Trail Blazers will need to improve on their win-loss record of 7-12 at the start of this year's NBA season. Will the likes of Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony and Hassan Whiteside help the Trail Blazers make the playoffs by the end of this season?
