Carmelo Anthony actually refers to himself as 'Me7o'

This Bleacher Report interview with Kristaps Porzingis is fun -- He wants to rap in Latvian! He's eating filet mignon because it's healthy! -- but the most entertaining part only has a little bit to do with the Knicks' rookie:

Carmelo Anthony reached out to me after I got drafted. He said, "Congrats, welcome to the team." I didn't have his number, so I texted back, "Who's this?" And then a few minutes later, he said, "This is Melo" with his No. 7 as the "l."

Yes, the branded-ass "name" Carmelo Anthony uses in cryptic tweets ...

... is really how he refers to himself in writing. I guess using an internet handle-type thing as an actual name is one big step toward becoming a digital athlete.
