(Video) NBA: Carmelo Anthony Visits Young Inmates at Rikers Island For ‘Stay Melo’ Episode 4

Last month I posted a story about Carmelo Anthony visiting Rikers Island to talk to young inmates as part of his Vice Sports “Stay Melo” series.  Anthony described his visit and the effect the inmates had on him.  Now the official episode is out.  Check out the footage.

Carmelo Anthony is not only the star player for the New York Knicks, he’s also a native New Yorker.  The NBA star decided to visit Rikers Island in New York City to meet and talk with some of the institution’s younger inmates (ages 16-21) and offer them encouragement.  The infamous correctional facility houses over 10,000 inmates and is one of the largest in the world.  The visit of course had an affect on the inmates but it touched Anthony as well.
