Carmelo Anthony said that when he re-signed his five-year, $124 million deal with the New York Knicks, his heart was with the city of New York and wanted to bring a winning team to Madison Square Garden.
Thus far, Anthony is really showing the team and the fans of the Knicks that his heart is into not only winning, but making himself a better basketball player as well, which includes being in the best physical shape possible.
On Monday, Anthony posted a picture of himself on Instagram which garnered the attention of everyone around the league; a photo that shows a much slimmer Anthony.
The trend of slimming down got going when Cleveland Cavaliers star player LeBron James posted pictures of himself on Instagram looking slimmer and it was cited through his paleo diet, which allowed him to drop 10-15 pounds; something that will obviously allow him to be in better shape for the new season.
Anthony may have followed LeBron's method of dieting with this new trend and Anthony's physical condition may be in better shape as a result of this new diet come the 2014-2015 season. This can only put a smile on the fans of Knicks fans everywhere as Anthony is clearly showing that he can be a leader by setting an example for other players and teammates; keeping your body in the best physical condition is doing just that.
