Anthony spent approximately nine hours with the Chicago Bulls' contingent on Tuesday, including dinner after a session at the United Center and tour of the team's under-construction facilities.
The perennial All-Star forward spent almost six hours with the Houston Rockets' recruiting committee, starting at the Toyota Center and continuing at lunch.
The Bulls and Rockets made public displays of their affection for Anthony, posting large, photoshopped signs outside their arenas of him wearing No. 7 in their respective uniforms.
There was no such pomp and circumstances from the Mavs. Dallas' meat-and-potatoes pitch emphasized the opportunity to contend immediately with elite coach Rick Carlisle, selfless star Dirk Nowitzki and a quality supporting cast featuring high-scoring guard Monta Ellis and defense-minded center Tyson Chandler. The Mavs also focused on the creativity and proven track record of the front office, stressing their plan to sustain a contender throughout Anthony's prime and ability to add at least one more major piece next summer.
