Carmelo Anthony Explores The Rise Of Soccer In Cuba
Now that diplomatic relations have improved between the U.S. and Cuba, everyone wants to venture out to La Llave del Caribe. Celebrities like Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Questlove have already sailed the proverbial unchartered waters of the island. Carmelo Anthony recently joined the ranks as he set out to explore Cuba on VICE Sports’ “The Clubhouse.”
In the inaugural episode of the sports culture series, the Knicks star travels to Cuba to examine the rise of soccer in a nation practically synonymous with baseball. While riding around in a red 1950s drop-top, Melo hangs around with the youth of the island and indulges in authentic, freshly rolled Cuban cigars.
