Carmelo Anthony must be in a good mood.
As the Knicks broke up with Phil Jackson this morning, ‘Melo’s also in talks to make some new moves of his own. According to PageSix, the power forward has pitched a weekly reality show about his work as a political activist.
Sources have revealed that the show will be 30 minutes long and has been shopped around to different networks, including HBO.
Anthony’s activism has been notably present during the Black Lives Matter movement. He marched during the Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore, the city he called home and where he honed his basketball skills.
And last July, he even hosted a town hall in South Central Los Angeles, where he was joined by 80 Black and Latinx teenagers at a local Boys & Girls Club.
With the show featuring tons of celebrity interviews and honest conversations, it makes sense why Melo would want to stay a Knick with New York’s heavy star presence. And with Jackson gone, Kristaps Porzingis in tow, and a few fresh-faced rookies, it looks like he’s got more than enough reasons to stay put.
