Fans of the baller were so excited Melo started trending on Twitter. Many mentioned that this would be the first time he will be playing alongside LeBron James on a team. If you’re familiar with the ballers, you know the pair have been close friends for years, dating back to when they were drafted into the NBA in 2003.
