After 19 seasons, NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony made his retirement official on Monday (the 10-time All-Star tweeted a video along with the announcement).
Being one of the greatest (and most well-liked) athletes of all time, the future Hall of Famer has received many well wishes from other players.
Steph Curry, a two-time MVP, left Anthony a message on his Instagram account on Tuesday.
Curry via the Instagram story: “A little late but congrats @carmeloanthony on an amazing carer and inspiring elevated footwork and killer instinct from the jump! Enjoy the extra añejo to the fullest.”
The Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers, and Los Angeles Lakers were among the teams Anthony played for.
Curry was a rookie when he was already in his seventh season in the league.
Additionally, Anthony played for the Knicks for a portion of seven seasons, meaning that the two spent a sizable period of time in different conferences.
Only during the regular season, the two superstars squared off 20 times, with Anthony coming out on top 11-9 times.
