The summer of Hoodie Melo continued on Monday as the shrouded alter ego of Carmelo Anthony was back on the court at Life Time Athletic at Sky, which has been his unofficial summer home. All summer we’ve seen videos of Anthony in his trademarked hoodie and sweats balling out with some of the NBA’s elite and looking like he’s ready to dominate offensively once again this season, wherever he’s playing.
On Monday morning, Melo was joined by a star-studded cast of the NBA’s elite in New York. Among them were some of his current and former Knicks teammates, like Tim Hardaway Jr., Iman Shumpert, and Lance Thomas, but also some potential future teammates in Houston in James Harden and Chris Paul.
Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook also joined the game, along with Enes Kanter (a regular at these games) and former Thunder teammates Serge Ibaka and Victor Oladipo.
From the looks of it, Hoodie Melo was lethal on offense as he’s been all summer, lighting it up from deep.
Westbrook also appears to be in game shape and at full speed with training camp rapidly approaching as he took a rebound coast-to-coast past Harden for an easy bucket.
JaVale McGee was also part of the Monday morning run and he wasn’t allowing any easy buckets in transition.
As for the connection between Melo and his potential new point guard in Chris Paul, that duo seems to be on the same page already.
