Nuggets' Melo: Lookin' Good on the Bench

January 29 2009, 10:14 AM

This is probably going to haunt Carmelo Anthony for a while: The headlines he's getting these days are focused on what he's wearing rather than how he plays. Hey, it's not his fault that he's riding the bench with a hand injury. But, as the Rocky Mountain News writes, "check out his new upscale image." The braids, untucked shirts, and baggy jackets of seasons past are gone. Instead, he's gone "preppy-cool" and is wearing plaids, tweeds, sweaters, ties, and suits with pocket squares. A slam-dunk or fashion junk? Rate Melo's fashion sense here.
