Carmelo Anthony's time in New York started pretty well and finished on not-so-good terms, but the moments he lived in the Big Apple are irreplaceable. Melo was the heart and soul of a Knicks team that tried to dethrone LeBron James in the East. Every season, they tried to assemble a team to compete with the King, but they never lived up to the expectations.
Still, nobody can deny Melo gave his everything to take the Knicks to the promised land while trying to keep fans happy. There was this one time when instead of making them smile, Melo scared them really badly, pranking them by posing as a wax figure.
Anthony went to a museum to try to deceive people and did it in a great fashion, shocking them whenever he revealed he was the one and only Carmelo Anthony, from the New York Knicks. Instagram page "basketballismyreligion" recently brought back this video, remembering how good Melo got some people.
That would scare the living sh*t out of me😂😂
Man I miss seeing Melo in a NY jersey
They knew to only do it on people who looked under 60 😂💀
This was the last time Carmelo scared opponents
Amid all the things he had to go through in New York, Melo had fun playing for the Knicks. Things never clicked for him and his teammates to defeat LeBron James on their way to the Finals, with some people taking the spotlight from them and becoming James' biggest threats in the East.
Right now, Anthony is still trying to win that elusive ring, and nobody knows where he'll play next season. After an overwhelming campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers, he's ready to find another challenge in the league and make another run for the championship.
