LeBron cracks great joke about Carmelo Anthony’s Hawks jersey
The Atlanta Hawks are making good on Carmelo Anthony’s request for a jersey, which has led to some quality jokes.
Anthony was traded by Oklahoma City to Atlanta in a salary dump last month. Anthony quickly reached a buyout with the Hawks, which allowed him to join a new team upon clearing waivers.
Anthony never intended to play a game for the Hawks and will not, but that didn’t stop him from saying two weeks ago that he wanted a Hawks jersey with his name on it as a keepsake. The Hawks tweeted on Thursday that they are making good on the request.

Melo’s tenure in Atlanta was about as scintillating as Luka Doncic’s with the Hawks. Now Melo is expected to join the Houston Rockets for the veteran’s minimum.
