Gary Trent Jr. coming up huge for Portland Trail Blazers during the playoff push
Portland Trail Blazers backup guard Gary Trent Jr. grew up admiring the game of Carmelo Anthony. “He’s one of my top five favorite players of all time just to watch,” Trent said Tuesday. “So, to have an opportunity to be out there at the same time, it’s crazy.” But he isn’t simply playing with Anthony. The two have developed into vital pieces of the Trail Blazers’ playoff push since the NBA restart in Florida. He is confident enough to stroll into an empty arena in Orlando with a flame-adorned, black denim button-up fastened so it purposely exposes his bare navel as well as his high-end fanny pack. And since no outfit is complete without accessories, the script on his Supreme beanie matches the flames along with the trim of his shirt.
