    1. Yeah he is not banging Candice. If he was he would be in jail. Might want to do a little research before you talk Candice is his sister. Went to high school with her. Candice is married to Sheldon Williams. And she is freaking amazing at basketball. Before gym class one day my freshmen year her jr year, she was putting on a dunking clinic it was awesome to watch her out dunk all the guys who thought they were gods gift to basketball. But enough of that. Yeah she and Anthony are brother and sister.

  1. Enjoyed his time in Cleveland, but definitely time to move on on both ends. Cheers on a fine career, Anthony.
