I waited until 11 last night for an interview to air on SportsCenter. Scott Van Pelt talked to Carmelo Anthony about a few things, including his future.

Carmelo Anthony is in a weird position right now. Currently, he has decided to take a few interviews recently. However, he is unable to speak on his current situation without getting some serious media backlash.

This trend continued late last night as an interview aired on the late night edition of SportsCenter. Melo talked around a few touchy subjects, and Van Pelt even acknowledged a few of them.

Carmelo is in a sticky situation this summer. After being loyal to New York for (far) too long, he is ready to move on. Is Houston the next destination for the 10-time All Star?

Here is the full interview that you should watch:

Highlights

As you can see, like I said, Melo is being very cryptic. Also, he is wearing red and white. Obviously, that means nothing, but he does look good in Rockets colors!

While watching the interview live, I tweeted out a couple of the highlights. Let’s take a look at some of them.

"For me, it's all about winning a championship, and having fun playing the game of basketball again."

If Carmelo is serious about wanting to win a championship and having fun, then Houston is the place to be. With the Rockets, he can play next to two future Hall of Famers and a strong supporting cast. If he embraces his role in the offense, he can have a ton of fun playing for Mike D’Antoni. Last season, James Harden said that he had the most fun he has ever had playing basketball. Who is to say that the same won’t happen for Carmelo?

"We're just gonna see what happens."
-Melo talking about his next step.
He also mentioned that he has talked to Perry now. #Knicks #Rockets

During the last part of the interview, Melo noted that he has now talked to the Knicks and GM Scott Perry. It was rumored that the Knicks might actually look to keep him, too. Carmelo said in the interview that he has had great conversations with the Knicks and that they know where he stands. As of the latest reports, it stands that he wants to be in Houston with James Harden and Chris Paul.
