Quote: Carmelo on his shoulder

“I’m ecstatic going from a torn rotator cuff and torn labrum to not needing surgery. Let me take that back: taking a risk in not taking surgery and letting it heal on its own. I took a huge risk in doing that. It meant I had to put more time in the offseason to do what I had to do to get it right.”
