    I’m guessing that’s Ben Osborne with pen and pad chatting with Melo?

    ..awaiting “hit and run” jokes..

  • http://slamonline.com Lang Whitaker

    That’s Ryan, actually. For the first time in forever he’s not making comments on SLAMonline and he’s actually in a post.

  • Max Airington

    That music is f*cking eeire. “No matter what you see, you dont understand what it takes to be me”
    & “When it all falls down”? How appropriate.

  • Ekam

    Ryan u kutha(means dog in punjabi) if i ever met melo be4 this photo shoot i wudev told him to knock u out but trust me he wudnt run. Melos the best. Ryan ur still up lebrons ass and he prob doesnt know who u are ahhah. Carmelo looked preety pissed in the PHOTO shoot he prob wanted knock u out or smtn. Hes averagin 31.6 ppg and ur up lebrons ass who aint better then melo any more. Nuggets are better

    Man it would suck having to do those photos shoots (The players I mean). I used to hear of players turning up to photo shoots all pissed off about having to do them and think: typical whining pro athlete, complaing about everything. But seeing these videos.. man.. it just looks real uninteresting for them. Especially considering all the shit they could be doing. How long do they take? Im guessing several hours, right?

  • Drolfe

    And another thing i often wondered: are most of the interviews with players done in between photos at the shoot?

  • Ben

    Most SLAM shoots can get done in less than an hour; ideally, interviews are done at a different time, but in the case of big-name players with lots of commitments, a shoot is the sometimes the only time we have with them so we try to get the interview and shoot done at the same time. Not sure if Ryan did his official interview at this shoot or not.
    And yes, it may not be the most fun for the players, but it’s a way for them to connect with the fans who will see the photos, give back to SLAM for all the coverage we gave them when they weren’t big stars yet, and a way for them to sell themselves and the products they push. Hard to feel bad for players who willingly accept endorsement deals that take up way more time than magazine photo shoots.

  • DeVAndrei

    yo ben, u look like adam sandler dude

  • Ben

    i’m not in the video! re-read above.

  • J R

    dude already said that was Ryan in the video. and a half an hour really aint nothin to get that pissed about. i actually thought it took longer that that too.

  • Drolfe

    Yeah, under an hour is way easy. For some reason it seems like the whole process would take forever.

  • Tarik

  • aaron

  • JJ

    Melo my dude and all (Fav player in 03 draft class) but he ran from Jared Jefferies, nuff said

  • Noah Doucette

    he didnt stand up for his team mates. he waited till everything settled down then he runs in and sucker punches collins, then he bolts away screamin while bein tailed be jeffries. no way hes better then bron.

  • bs on you

    jeffries got muscles,man. thats why melo ran. his suspention is way to much and all of you people at slam know that.

    Carmelo anthony is best player right now
    NBA

  • Ryan Jones

    Ekam, I miss you man. We need to get together soon and share a nice bottle of chablis, you sweet f*cker.
    And Dev, my boys have been telling me I look like Sandler since college, though only when the hair is short. I just wish I had his money.

  • Ryan Jones

    Ben looks a lot more like Michael Owen.

  • Ryan Jones

    Oh, and for the record: Yes, I did the interview at the photo shoot — whole process combined took 90 minutes, maybe a little less. As I wrote in the mag, Melo seemed kind of grumpy early on, which is fair ’cause apparently he hadn’t slept much, but he was in a great mood for the interview and was pretty cool for the photo shoot, too. The VAST majority of guys we shoot for SLAM are cool and cooperative, mostly because they want to be in the magazine — especially, obviously, if it’s a cover. Melo’s one of those guys who bugs us every time he sees us, like, “When’s my next cover,” and considering how overdue he was for this one, you can imagine how much grief he was giving us. But he was great, as are most of the guys we deal with. And Ekam, you’ll be glad to know that includes my close, dear, personal friend LeBron James.

    SCREW CARMELLO “HIT AND RUN” ANTHONY HE IS A WUSSY BUT WITH A P. I HOPE WHEN HE COMES BACK FROM SUSPENSION HE DOES NOT MAKE THE ALL STAR TEAM AND HIM AND A.I. START BEEFIN.

  • Reachy

    Man Carmelo Anthony is one of the greatest players in the game right now. He step up tremdenously. He really has…sooo ya’ll need to stop lol. Ya’ll just mad at him because he “hits and runs” like a wuss….And I’m mad about that too but still that doesn’t hide the fact that he is one of the best players in the game.

    And about his fiance LaLa…Lawd can she please just go away…She is very annoying..Her gold diggin butt. She only after his money. Please believe if Melo wasn’t this million dollar NBA player LaLa wouldn’t even be with him. She would laugh in his face and walk off. He soo freakin young..and she almost 30…..Soo if Carmelo anthony was this college basketball player..LaLa would have still gotten with im? Hell No! So that right there should show people that she is a gold digger. Now the hoodrat is having his baby. Lawd!

    everyone talks about who the next Jordan is! D Wade or LBJ the answer, NEITHER!
    In my mind Kobe bryant already took that spot the three peat the SLASH name he’s got it all and (You may be sick of herin it) 81. Wether we like it or not KB24 is here to stay! (A lil late LBJ!) FUCK MELO He’s gotta grow up first!!
