Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony among NBA stars featured in anti-gun violence PSA set to air on Christmas

Carmelo Anthony joins NBA stars in PSA calling for end to gun violence

Carmelo Anthony joined a handful of his fellow NBA stars in a commercial for "Everytown for Gun Safety" in an effort to put an end to gun violence.

Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony took part in a public service announcement calling for an end to gun violence that will air on Christmas. In the spring, Anthony joined protesters in Baltimore and marched for peace in the riot-torn city.

“The gun should never be an option,” Anthony said in the PSA that Spike Lee directed.

NBA stars Steph Curry, Chris Paul and Joakim Noah also appear in the spot.

“I’ve been through those kinds of situations,” Anthony said. “Dealing with the Baltimore stuff, going down there, knowing how important that is not just in Baltimore but throughout the country, it was a no-brainer for me to do that.”
