Video: Carmelo Anthony Plays the Market, Trades $260 Million

The Knicks superstar gets his broker on.

We know NBA players have other talents beyond basketball—as we saw when LeBron hopped in a flag football game—but who knew Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony also had some stock broker skills? As seen in the video above, Melo recently completeled some kind of $260 million deal on national TV at BGC global charity day, in which funds were raised to commemorate 9/11. We salute Melo for assisting to a good cause, and if this lockout thing doesn’t get settled, it does look like he could find some work on Wall Street, right?

    Wall Street is where the money is at and that’s why schools don’t educate students about stocks and trading. Instead they force people that could give a damn about literature and science to sit there and waste their time learning about molecules and shakespeare. Public schools suck!!!

    this was pathetic. he just had to say “$260 at $13″, and he wasn’t very good at it… did anybody else notice that he looks a bit heavy? he should workout more often/harder. Baron Davis was one of the most athletic people in the history of the planet and weight problems slowed him down. Melo’s not a freak of nature by any means so he could get real bad real quick if he doesn’t get rid of some of those pounds
