Carmelo Anthony is done with the NBA.
The former NBA all-star announced his retirement at age 38 on Monday, following 19 NBA seasons.
In the meantime, an adult site is now offering him one last contract, but with a twist.
The adult site wants to pay him $250,000 for a one-year deal to see him recreate the infamous banana boat scene. Instead of him being on the boat with other NBA stars, he will be the “CBO.”
In his retirement announcement, Anthony shared a video montage of career moments, writing “Thank you” on social media.
“I remember the days when I had nothing just a ball on the court and a dream with something more,” Anthony said. “But basketball was my outlet. My purpose was strong. My communities, the cities I represented with pride, and the fans that supported me along the way.
“I am forever grateful for those people and places because they made me, Carmelo Anthony.
“But now the time has come for me to say goodbye: to the court where I made my name, to the game that gave me purpose and pride.”
“But this bittersweet goodbye to the NBA, I am excited for what the future holds for me. When people ask what I believe my legacy is, it’s not my feet on the court that comes to mind, nor the awards or praise, because my story has always been more than basketball.
He would then pass the torch to his 16-year-old son Kiyan.
Anthony co-parents Kiyan with his ex-wife, actress La La Anthony, who filed for divorce last June.
Their marriage may be over, but they remain good friends.
Back in 2022, La La said the marriage started falling apart after Anthony was traded from the Nuggets to the Knicks in 2011.
He is still beloved by the fan base as he returned to MSG with his son for Game 2 of the Knicks’ Eastern Conference playoff series with the Heat earlier this month. Once shown on screen, he received a standing ovation from the home crowd and stood up with his arms outstretched, thanking the fans for the love.
