Carmelo Anthony is back to his old tricks. They remind me off the way he acted when Allen Iverson was his teammate. The only difference between now and then is he didn’t “foe” reference God. Carmelo did some Veggie Crunch Prayer and Purge for 21 days. Next he will sign a multi-million dollar endorsement for the The Hallelujah Diet. NBA athletes know no bounds when it comes to making a quick buck. You know what Melo found after his 21 days of fruits, veggies, and prayers? His Ego! Here is the exact quote courtesy of blacksportsonline.
“It takes a strong-willed person, a strong-minded person to go out there and deal with the stuff I deal with and still go out and work every day and perform on a nightly basis,” Anthony said.
“I take my hat off to myself for dealing with all the stuff that’s going on and still be able to play at the highest level I can play at. I don’t really think the average person can walk in my shoes.”
Carmelo Anthony should be forced to go work in a steel factory or go lay carpet for 10 years to understand hard physical labor. Better yet he should go frame 50 houses for Habitat for Humanity! That is work! What he does is a game. A Game! Yes, it requires some work to stay in shape and to jet around the country. Can you sense the sarcasm? Give me a break. Melo lives the privileged life. He doesn’t know hard physical labor. He doesn’t understand the concept of working two jobs like Big Russ to support his family. The irony is I guess he never will. Keep on enjoying your Valentine’s Day with your ego Melo. If you want to understand real work go talk to Big Russ. He picked up trash during the day and drove a newspaper truck at night. That is a man who should “tip his hat off to himself.” However Big Russ never would. He doesn’t need an ego he knows who he is!
