New York, Chicago Strip Clubs Recruiting Carmelo Anthony With Free Lap Dances
Seven-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony is an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NBA career. So he's enjoying it, taking meetings with interested teams, letting them plaster billboards with his face on them all over the city and their home arenas.
At this point, it seems two of the most likely cities to land Melo (the second most-sought after free agent this summer, behind LeBron James) are Chicago and New York. The Bulls can offer a winning culture, with fellow All-Stars Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah already in the fold. The Knicks can offer tens of millions more in guaranteed salary, plus the stability of staying in NYC.
But the teams themselves aren't the only ones locked in a bidding war. Both Chicago and New York are getting extra recruiting help from important mainstays of their local "adult" economies. According to TMZ Sports, both Scores New York and The Admiral in Chicago are offering Melo some extra incentives to sign with their teams. Check it out:
TMZ Sports spoke to Scores New York -- one of the top strip clubs in the world -- and they tell us that if 'Melo chooses to remain with the Knicks, they'll make it worth his while with the most sinful package of flesh pressing goodies ever.
The Scores New York "Melo Love" package includes:
-- Free lapdances for life.
-- Judging the “Dollars For Scholars” amateur pole dancing competition (15,000 scholarship in his name to the winner.)
-- A new drink called “The Melo Carmelo” to be served in the club forever.
-- His own personal ball girl and cheerleading squad for every Knicks game that would only cheer for Carmelo.
-- A topless charity basketball in his honor (in which he could play) ... "where holding is not a foul."
Scores isn't the only strip club throwing some love Melo's way though, The Admiral Theater in Chicago -- another city seriously in contention for Anthony's services -- have their own ideas on how to get Melo in Bulls uniform.
The Admiral Theater's "Sign with the Bulls" offer to Carmelo includes:
-- A life sized portrait of him with various girls at his feet to be on display in the club forever.
-- A LaLa Anthony look-alike contest in the club that Melo and LaLa could judge as a couple.
-- Free driver service to and from the club forever.
-- 3 of the dancers from the club would tattoo 'Carmelo Anthony' on their bodies (they really said this).
You know what? We'd have trouble deciding, too.
