Was Melo’s odd fashion accessory inspired by a Broadway show? Taco’s 80s classic “Putting on the Ritz”? Or perhaps Fred Astaire’s suave “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails”?
TOP THAT TOP HAT
Whatever the motivation for wearing a top hat, Anthony had to know the Twittersphere would respond in kind.
Just figured out where Carmelo Anthony got his hat. pic.twitter.com/KWeptnroQV
