Video: Melo and Amar'e head to 'Sesame Street'

By Matt Moore 

We interrupt the slow decline of the NBA into the toilet to bring you something fun and happy. Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire stopped by "Sesame Street" to visit with a friend. If you're going to put those two with a Muppet, it's got to be Grover. Big Bird is like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, tall with no personality, and Elmo is like JET. There are times you wish he'd just shut up. Grover is the right call here, and in the clip below he and the boys explain the word "compare." You know, like "compare how much money will be lost over a season vs. the amount they're squabbling over in the CBA." Sorry, couldn't help myself. The lockout is everywhere.
