NBA free agent Carmelo Anthony is embracing the possibility of retiring in the near future.

In an interview with Taryn Finley of the Huffington Post on Friday, Melo suggested he is at peace with the fact he may not play much longer: 

“I’m sure [retirement is] coming soon. I’d be sitting lying to you if I said it’s not coming soon. I think I want it to come soon. I don’t think I want to do this forever, but because you love it so much, it’s hard to give it up. At the end of the day, at anything you do, when it’s your time to go, it’s your time to go. But as long as you feel good with that.”

The 34-year-old Anthony is currently unsigned and hasn’t appeared in a game since Nov. 8 as a member of the Houston Rockets.
