Why are fans mad Carmelo Anthony stayed with the Thunder?
By opting in to the deal, Anthony will make a little under $28 million with the Thunder next season. That’s a significant part of the Thunder’s payroll, and some fans don’t think Anthony is worth it. The 34-year-old averaged a career-low 16.2 points in 2018.
