Carmelo Anthony, who's finding it hard to receive any help from the big shots in the Knicks front office, finally got an assist from one organization — or didn’t he?
On Friday night, the Knicks star cruised through New York City traffic-free after appearing to receive an escort from the NYPD, reported TMZ.
Anthony — who is facing surgery on his sore left knee — posted an Instagram video after 6 p.m. Friday that shows his car trailing a vehicle with blaring sirens and lights. Both cars drive against 34th Street traffic while avoiding the chaos of All-Star Weekend as Melo makes his way to Madison Square Garden.
"Ain't nothing like a police escort, boy, in all this traffic," Melo says during the 17-second clip.
However, a New York Police Department spokesman had not heard that Anthony received an NYPD escort.
“As a policy, we do not give police escorts through traffic for celebrities,” the spokesman said.
