Carmelo Anthony spent some time training with Real Madrid at UCLA on Tuesday. Using nothing but these two pictures, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that America’s best athletes do not play soccer. If only Melo and other NBA players had a soccer ball put in his crib instead of a basketball we would have won our third consecutive World Cup earlier this month.
And before Knicks fans salivate at the idea of Melo playing another sport and creating a great deal of cap space – LeBron would also be a dominant soccer player in this alternate universe. U-S-A! U-S-A!
Just look at this picture! Melo’s arms are wider than the entire goal! Who is going to score a goal on a guy that tall? It’s impossible. Honestly? I feel the worst for people who waste their time watching soccer when inferior athletes are involved. So sad. I mean, can Landon Donovan even dunk a basketball?
