Not surprisingly, the first player who tweeted about Anthony's return was his old friend and member of the 2003 draft class, LeBron James, hours before he entered the stave for his own game on Tuesday.
So damn Happy for my brother @carmeloanthony!!!! Just saw him warming up for the game on the TV and it made me smiled. Back at it Champ! Good luck ????? # 007

The recently retired Dwyane Wade, who was selected two posts after Melo in 2003, only needed one word, with a few additional 'o's', perhaps to represent Anthony's new number and express his enthusiasm.

Jusuf Nurkic, still in rehabilitation of his leg injury, was ready to see his new teammate.

The rest of the NBA was equally excited to see what Anthony would look like after a year.
I don't be tweeting like that but I'm hype as hell waiting to watch @carmeloanthony hoop again …
I think every Nba player gone be watching this !!
