Carmelo Anthony to angry Knicks fan: Ask owner James Dolan for your money back

Carmelo Anthony is teaming up with some other famous New York residents, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for a new capsule collection inspired by the sewer-dwelling crime fighters.

This May, Macy’s will sell a line of Turtles-inspired gear designed by the Knicks star, which will include T-shirts, sweatshirts, pajamas and more, according to WWD.

The items in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Melo collection will cost between $20-$35 and will serve as part of the marketing campaign for this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie in which Anthony will have a cameo.

The All-Star forward said he enjoyed the project, as he not only got to show off his design skills, but also be a part of the Turtles brand, which he has been a fan of since he was a child.

“I grew up on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so to be able to partner on a boys’ collection with Nickelodeon and Macy’s goes beyond my wildest dreams. As a kid, they were one of the first cartoons I gravitated to.”

The clothing is planned as a single run, so you will have to act fast to get the Turtle/Anthony gear when it hits shelves.
