The 2017 summer has turned into a showcase of offseason workouts of NBA players on Twitter and Instagram, but maybe the most important trend to emerge has been Carmelo Anthony’s alter ego: Hoodie Melo. Hoodie Melo was created after fans began to see him constantly wearing a hoodie while working out, mostly with Chris Brickley. Brickley has become the go-to workout guru for many NBA athletes including Anthony, Kevin Durant, and C.J. McCollum.

It was with Brickley that Hoodie Melo began to make his debut. There is a large number of Hoodie Melo appearances on Brickley’s Instagram dating back to May of 2017.
Despite Thomas’ massive improvement, this isn’t an easy decision for Boston.
Thomas was a superstar last year, but he also was a major liability on defense, and, well, he is small. He’ll be looking for a full 5-year, $200 million-plus deal, but he’ll also be 29 years old when the time comes.
It’s hard to make that kind of long-term commitment to a 5’9 guard exiting his prime that only impacts one end of the floor, no matter how good he is there. The Celtics may not even need his scoring as much this year with Gordon Hayward on the roster.
Thomas may end up in a situation like (or worse) than Kyle Lowry did with the Raptors this passed offseason. The 31-year-old Lowry was looking for a full 5-year, $200 million deal from Toronto just like Thomas will be next year. But once the market didn’t work out for him, Lowry ended up settling for a 3-year deal at about $33 million per year.
