Much of the NBA community was taken back last week when Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James posted a picture of himself looking much thinner on Instagram. And in a case of anything you can do, I can do better, Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks has seemingly done the same.
Melo’s never been considered ‘fat’ by any stretch of the imagination, though he has always been a bit husky, even dating back to his days at Syracuse. It never impacted him on the court as the New York Knicks forward is routinely among the league leaders in minutes played, but it appears Carmelo Anthony will be atop that leader boarder looking much svelter this year.
Anthony, showing off post workout decided to post a picture of his new look to Instagram and the change is rather noticeable.
What the hell is in the water these guys are drinking? Actually, maybe I shouldn’t say that – oops.
In all seriousness, good on them. Both James and Anthony have already signed their massive deals (though James’ is only for two seasons) so it’s not as if either player was attempting to get in better shape simply for a financial gain, but look to be doing it for the better of their team and their own health.
Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks may not be winning an NBA Championship this season, though he certainly won the offseason training program award.
Have to be thrilled with the dedication and commitment if your a Knicks fan.
