It was just over a year ago that Hornets’ guard Chris Paul toasted Carmelo Anthony at his wedding and suggested he and his good friend join Amar’e Stoudemire in New York to form a strong enough tandem to take down the “Big Three” in Miami.
With STAT and Melo now both donning orange and blue, it two down, one to go for the Knicks.
These days, Anthony is spending some quality time with buddy Paul as the two venture together in China as part of the “Jordan Flight Tour” for Nike’s Jordan sneakers.
Anthony and Paul both asserted during a Q&A with fans that they would both in fact play in China, should either decide to play overseas during the lockout, with the Knicks star noting, “it’s a lot of history here, the fans are great; why not, why not try it out?”
Aside from promoting the sneakers and pondering their lockout fates, the two have spent their time touring China while chilling with pandas and performing a Chinese opera mask dance together.
