Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler remembers a physical Carmelo Anthony welcoming him to the NBA down in the post.

(via Miami Heat- My Rookie Experience):

“I would say my welcome to the NBA moment was guarding Carmelo Anthony in Madison Square Garden. He literally like bruised my sternum from the hard post-ups that he was getting every single play, and I had to sit there and just take that beating every time down the floor. But welcome to the NBA, and it helped me to stay in the NBA.”
