January 17th saw the New York Knicks take on the Detroit Pistons in front of a sell-out crowd at the o2 Arena, and comfortably beat the ‘home’ team’ with a dominent performance from Carmelo Anthony, in what was only the third time an NBA game had been played in London.

But is wasn’t all work for ‘Melo’, who’s currently on course to be crowned with the highest of basketball accolades, the MVP award. He got the chance to kick back for a most quintessential afternoon at the Savoy Hotel in London, with the gentleman that is Mr Dave White. The pair shared a pot of earl grey and caught up about his trip to the city, his footwear game, and to chat over some fresh colourway options that Dave had put together for the recent Nike Melo 9 release.

If the outstanding pictures (the one below has pretty much gone viral, and rightly so) from our good friends over at WeAreHQ are anything to go by, the interview will be well worth a read when it eventually drops.
