Carmelo Anthony Drops Weight [Photo]


I often refer to athletes as “me too,” that’s because when they see one of their peers acquire something, or try something new, they want to follow suit and try also. The latest example, Carmelo Anthony. The Knicks baller showed off his new slimmed down physique on Instagram Monday morning.

Melo joins LeBron James and DWade who have shed pounds this off season.

In a recent interview in Puerto Rico, while hosting a basketball camp, Melo revealed that he was pleased with the offseason moves the Knicks made, but he doesn’t expect the team to win a championship this upcoming season.

“Management has done a good job of trying to put together a team that may not necessarily have stars, but has players who fall within the system it wants to implement.”

“I do not expect to win a championship this year. That’s something that takes time and everything has to be in sync, from management to the players. We have a lot of work to do, but it’s something that drives me. I know we can start building the foundation of what we want to do. It’s the start of a good process.”

Gee Melo, nobody else thought this either…
