Carmelo Anthony joins Stephen A. Smith for an exclusive interview on First Take to discuss how he thinks the media and NBA rumors have given him a bad reputation. Carmelo also addresses Chauncey Billups' comments that he cared more about scoring 30 points in games than winning, saying he had a different mentality as a young player but it was bad timing for the comments. Melo adds that he was immature to sign a five-year deal with the Denver Nuggets in 2006, while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade advised him to sign a three-year deal to potentially form a big three in the future.
