Carmelo Anthony pens emotional letter to OKC and fans

Before beginning his time with the Rockets, Carmelo Anthony thanked the Thunder and fans for their support over the last year.

"I know it was only one season, but from the time I arrived in OKC, I was greeted with so much love from The Team, The Organization, and of course the INCREDIBLE fans of this amazing city," Anthony said in a letter provided to The Oklahoman via the team.

"Throughout the entire season, game after game, you cheered me on and rooted for us as a team. That is something I will always cherish and never forget. That genuine support kept me going all season long."

In the letter, Anthony also said he "wanted nothing more than to make it work."

Anthony was traded to the Hawks in July but was then waived by Atlanta. He later signed a one-year, $2.39 million contract with Houston on Monday.

In his lone year with OKC, Anthony played in all 78 games and averaged 16.2 points per game. 

"IN LIFE, I've learned that things don't always turn out how you want," Anthony continued. "I'm sorry it didn't work out while I was here. Thank you to (Russell Westbrook), (Paul George), Sam Presti, Coach Billy Donovan, my trainers and the entire staff who work so hard and diligently at Chesapeake Energy Arena and the practice facility.

"I appreciate you all very much. Last but not least, Thank You to Mr. Bennett for believing in me. This chapter of my career may be coming to an end but my story is far from over."
