It’s party time once more for the Banana Boat Squad after Carmelo Anthony is reportedly back in the NBA. The news broke out Thursday night as the 35-year old future Hall of Famer is said to have signed with the Portland Trail Blazers as per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

This latest development in Anthony’s career immediately sent all social media platforms on fire with raves from other NBA players – active, retired and some free agents – and his “best friends” getting the attention of their own.

Dwyane Wade was first to congratulate his pal, saying the former NBA scoring champion is long overdue for a return.

Lebron James could not agree more. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar reposted Wade’s twitter post and kept his response concise but certainly proud.

As of posting, fans are still waiting for Chris Paul’s response. Tabs are possibly left open with his twitter page URL. Then again, the Banana Boat Squad twitter experience is never complete without the OKC guard.

Other players around the league likewise could not contain their excitement on the return of the 10-time All-Star.

Here is Utah Jazz rising star Donovan Mitchell echoing Wade’s sentiments.

Boston Celtics big man Enes Kanter, meanwhile, tweeted this “the Undertaker” GIF with the hashtag #Melo.

Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier is undeniably excited too.

Carmelo Anthony, whose deal with Portland is non-guaranteed, is set to join the Blazers on their upcoming six-game road trip that starts in San Antonio on Saturday. His expected return to action is reportedly against his former team Houston Rockets on Monday, and his new teammate Jusuf Nurkic looks forward to it.

Anthony, who also had previous stints in Denver, New York, and OKC, had been away from the game for over a year now. He last played in the NBA on November 8, 2018.

In an interview with ESPN last August, Melo made it clear that he is not done from playing just yet. "I'm in the gym every single day," Anthony said. “Silence is not my surrender," he added.
