Carmelo Anthony was asked what "Olympic Melo" means to him as many expect that version of his game to be displayed playing alongside Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

“Olympic Melo connotation comes into play [where] I’m surrounded by great players,’’ Anthony said. “I try to get where the game is easier for myself, easier for everybody else. That’s where I can come in and not have to do too much and bring my game and help me blend with other guys.

“I’ve always been a product of my environment. Whatever environment wants from me, that’s what I give my environment. This environment is different, reminds me of being around Olympic teams, those great teams.’’
