This is kind of cool — a couple of different sources have told me that Nuggets all-star Carmelo Anthony has been invited to be a guest at the White House on Sunday (no word if he’ll be joined by Chris Paul and Amare Stoudemire JUST JOKING). Due to White House protocol, no details have been released about what Anthony will do there or, most importantly, if he’ll play President Obama in one-on-one.
Anthony was outspoken during the 2008 race about his advocacy for Obama. He joked that he would try to score 44 points in game after the election, in honor of our 44th president. Here’s a video he did after the 2009 inauguration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2bJVEMMc6U
Melo has been a busy man this summer, getting married in New York, vacationing is Costa Rica and Puerto Rico, and working out and visiting friends in Los Angeles and his hometown of Baltimore.
Hope Obama is not trying to get him to play for the Bulls lol.
