When Carmelo Anthony decided to opt-out of his contract with the New York Knicks, one of the first people to make a public comment about the situation was his wife, LaLa Anthony. The former MTV VJ turned actress stated she’d have a say in where Carmelo signed his new deal which lead many to believe she was looking towards Los Angeles given her acting chops.
But not long after, rumors began to suggest that LaLa preferred for Carmelo Anthony to remain with the New York Knicks, especially given she’s a native of the Big Apple. What she probably didn’t prefer however was the offer from Scores NYC who offered Carmelo Anthony free lap dances for life if he was to re-sign with the Knicks.
Melo did just that, though, understandably he doesn’t sound likely to take the strip club up on their generous offer – I’m guessing at the chagrin of having to sleep on the couch.
Speaking to TMZ after the ESPY’s, Carmelo Anthony stated he wasn’t ‘messin with that’ when asked about the offer from Scores, though did suggest he’d be open to free pizza.
I’m pretty sure one of New York’s famed pizzerias will get wind of that and he’ll have no problem getting a pie whenever he feels like it. But when it comes to strippers, it sounds like Melo wants to stay as far away from that situation as possible.
We don’t blame him. Anybody who has watched LaLa’s VH1 reality show knows she’s got some Boogie Down Bronx in her blood.
