‘Melo buys art — then Hibbert seves it

Carmelo Anthony sports himself as a bit of an art aficionado. So
does Roy Hibbert. We’re not sure they should be sharing a studio
anytime soon, though.

First, on Tuesday night, Anthony, whose well-documented playoff
failures have become exacerbated in recent times by the success of
LeBron James, recently spent another free June reportedly dropping
$27,000 on …

 

 

According to the


New York Post
, Anthony on Tuesday night won the
Muhammad Ali print in an auction in the Big Apple, seated with
Tommy Hilfiger and Swizz Beatz at the Gordon Parks Awards dinner
and auction.

“I am big into the art world. I am still learning,
I’ve bought a lot of different artists. As far as collecting
just one, I am trying to take my time and get some art I feel
genuine towards,” he told the paper.

Then on Thursday, Hibbert, whose late-game block of an Anthony
dunk attempt became the signature play of this postseason —
and perhaps Melo’s career — tweeted this.

In case you missed it, that is a reference to this play to seal
Game 6 and eliminate the Knicks from the Eastern Conference
semifinals.
