Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has never been confused with a defensive stalwart. But Mike Woodson’s standards should be rightfully heightened for the upcoming season if he sees the video that Melo’s wife La La posted to Instagram Monday. The two spent the Labor Day weekend on Catalina Island in California.
Melo got brave and stuck his bare hands into the Pacific Ocean and caught a fish. No bait. No pole. Just hands. Weird, yes, but very impressive. And I take back what I said about the heightened expectations for Melo’s defensive game. After all, Melo failed to move his feet in the video and would have been whistled for the reach.
Melo and La La also played a little one-on-one on vacation…
