Melo latest NBA star to shed the pounds after LeBron James…
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has posted a new image on his official Instagram account looking particularly slim as his hard work is paying off.
The seven-time All-Star appears to have shed the pounds in a bid to gain speed and lessen the stress on his ageing joints moving forward.
The 30-year-old has clearly been working hard in the off-season after re-signing with the Knicks earlier this summer, and having been criticised in the past for his physique and slight tendency to fade in games, he has clearly made a point of improving on his all-round game.
The photo below clearly shows that he has slimmed down considerably, and it follows a growing trend with NBA superstars this summer after Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was also snapped after losing weight.
It is assumed that his move is to do with career longevity but also with an expected switch to small forward following the arrival of Kevin Love, but in Anthony’s case, it appears as though it is solely to get into better shape to lead the Knicks in the new season.
