Carmelo Anthony is no doubt a legend in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean he is immune from heckling fans.
While playing the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night, Melo was standing at the free-throw line while Lonzo Ball was getting ready to shoot when a fan got his attention.
The fan told him he needed to retire, to which Melo had this to say:
Melo to a fan that told him to retire last night:
“Shut yo ass up.”
