Carmelo Anthony is Vice Media’s newest teammate. Anthony, the New York Knicks star, has joined Vice’s sports site as a founding partner of The Clubhouse, a new channel where well-known athletes, including Anthony and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, will host their own video series.

Today, the only important thing is the national team. Later, gladly.”
