Carmelo Anthony Won’t Use Crutches for Swag Reasons
Carmelo Anthony sprained his right ankle in Thursday night’s loss to the Grizzlies and he’s recovering. The team apparently wanted Melo to use crutches to help recover, but he refused and went with a walking boot instead. His reason?
“Yeah I had a boot on last night. They wanted me on crutches, but it was messin’ my swag up,” he said after practice Friday. “I couldn’t do the crutches, so they put me in a boot.”
Gotta love it. Melo’s always gotta stay fly. But you already knew how concerned with looks he was, so this isn’t really a surprise, is it?
If I were a Knicks fan or coach, I might be upset. Wouldn’t you be upset if your star player were recovering slowly because he cared more about his swag than getting healthy? Me too.
