Carmelo Anthony and Cleanthony Early

NY Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is calling for stricter gun control in New York City after one of his teammates was shot leaving a strip club.

Knicks player Cleanthony Early was shot and wounded in the knee by a gunman who robbed him outside a Queens strip club early Wednesday.

“We got to do something,” Anthony said when asked to comment on the need for gun control. “You feel it. I felt it in Baltimore, in that situation, the Freddie Gray situation, and I’m feeling it now with a teammate of mine that’s much closer.”

Anthony said he thought of Early’s mother after he heard his teammate had been shot.

“For his mom to have to wake up to that text, that call… no parent should have to go through that,” he said.

“[Gun control is] just something that we have to do,” he continued. “We’ve got to figure it out. I don’t know how we figure it out. I don’t have the answers. I’m pretty sure a lot of people are working on trying to figure that out. But we have to do something.”

Derrick Williams robbed

Another Knicks player, Derrick Williams (pictured above), was robbed by two women at his Tribecka apartment after he met them at a nightclub on Dec. 19. The women robbed Williams of $750,000 worth of jewelry. Police are still searching for the women.

“A lot of these things, you really don’t put two and two together until you hear an incident and you start to remember, ‘This happened and that happened and that happened,'” Anthony said. “So as athletes — anybody, not just athletes, but people with some type of stature or money — we just have to figure out a way to be better, be safer, know our surroundings.”

    Maybe people with some type of stature or money should avoid seedy locations and tricky women.

  • jazmine

    I thought New York had really strict gun control?

  • Hater

    ====================================================
    …I don’t have any sympathy for him, especially since he took two strangers back to his apartment. None at all :tea:

  • Miany

    gun control wont stop criminals…….regulations and rules mean nothing to criminals… shiii it is already illegal to rob folk so why do we think a would be robber will legally obtain a gun?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Didn’t Plaxico Burress go to prison for shooting his OWN self in the leg? In New York City?

  • KennyHollywood

    The more I read into this story on other sites, I believe his girlfriend (who is from Brooklyn) had him set up…. that or someone in the strip club set him up. This was too coordinated of an attack and was no coincidence.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Melo is calling for stricter gun control…Hmmmmm I’m sure the gun that was used wasn’t registered or legal.. But, yeah.

  • Too Many Colors

  • Mz.Capricorn

    @Hater. Chile, i had to stroll back up to make sure Sandra wasn’t messing up his name on purpose. I can’t date nobody whose name makes me giggle & shake my head at the same damn time.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Oh Jenie ?…That gif ????

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Cleanthony was in the Uber with the bartender from the club?. All outlets aren’t reporting that. I hope he gets well and he better be glad it was in and out and will take 2-3 months to recover. His career would have been short lived.

  • Hater

    Gurl all I’ll say those teef…. Lol

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Is his name really Cleanthony?

  • Milani

  • Ni Ni

    I wished they would’ve just named him cleophus. We’ve all heard of a cleophus…wouldn’t have been as odd to pronounce.

  • Hater

    According to As good as it gets his middle name is also Cleotus….. LMAO – Happy New Years Ya’ll!!!

  • Hater

    I died and woke up again, so its all good

  • PettyEyezPrime

  • stav

    Does a person being shot unjustifiably have to be close to you for you to feel it? All the young black men being killed should have awaken a response in the media from so many, that never said a word. At least this mans mother can still see him, he still has his life , maybe he will think twice next time before he tries to go tricking with Becky’s. Hate he was shot though!

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

  • TheRealLee

    Law abiding citizens who have guns are not the ones robbing you and doing home invasion, Melo. What we need is smarter ballers who take care of themselves instead of messing around with these skrippers whose only function in life it to rob simp ballers, give them STD’s, or trap you with child Melo. How about controlling that.

  • Li

    Good luck with that. Won’t happen. There are 400 million guns in America, there won’t be any laws or control on gun ownership. Won’t happen in my lifetime.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Stop acting like your life is a stereotypical rap video.

  • TheRealLee

    Thankfully it’s not. I’m not about that life. They are though.

  • Ladysweetthang

    I bet he thought these soft Caucasian girls ain’t about that life. Smh fooled him.

  • Auditor

    Damn for real

  • Junkanoo

    A lot of gun loving people already believe the government has an agenda to take away all guns an are stock piling guns an amunition. Some even believe some of these mass shot insurance have been false flags designed to ban guns eventually. I don’t know if I like the idea of only the police an milatary having guns an no gun lover

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Not you, them!

  • JerseyMom

    How would stricter gun laws stop police from killing Black folks tho? And how would such laws impact criminals who don’t abide by laws? STFU, Carmelo. How about just keep your rich asses out of the clubs?

  • Miany

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Good for the idiot that got robbed by the two ugly white women. Its unfortunate what happend to Early, but why was he in an ubber in queens at that time of night? Dude has money , why didn’t he just call a real cab service or hire a driver for the night? Shut up Carmelo! Black people are gunned down 24/7 365 by COPS as well as other thugs now when it hits home you care? Bye! Go pay attention to your wonkey eyed wife.

    “Knicks player Cleanthony Early was shot and wounded in the knee by a gunman who robbed him outside a Queens strip club early Wednesday.”

    So we’re blaming the gun and not the lowlife that jacked him for his sh*t?

    How does gun control change that. Gun safety is crucial and it failed for this unfortunate family. When the barbarians are at the gate and it’s you and your family, you need protection. If you don’t want one, don’t get one. It’s that simple. But that logic does not work for criminals.

  • sealsaa

    Exactly. All the gun control in the world isn’t going to prevent people from scheming. New York has some of the strictest gun laws in the country yet his lanky ass still got robbed and shot. There’s nothing positive happening outside after midnight. Party at home.

    Ummmm Freddie Gray was not shot. He sustained injuries in the back of a police van.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Right!!! Further it’s not the damn guns!!! It’s the ppl who get the guns and often times it’s ppl without a criminal record or violent past that are committing the crimes with guns now when you start “controlling” guns and not the user we gone end up with a bunch of defenseless ppl against the gun user because let’s just face it they will make it harder for a certain group of ppl when another group of ppl will be free to carry and when stuff pop off a certain group won’t have anything to use in their defense I think Carmelo need to hush because he will be in that certain group that will be profiled as not being able to get a gun. It kills me that some not all but some of these black celebrities never speak on descrimmination, racial injustice, poverty in the black community due to the previous two things mentioned but open their moufs on topics that they have not even researched example “I don’t know how we do it but something need to be done we need gun control” sir you don’t get paid to think please just stick to shooting hoops thanks

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yea right I would be surprised if she or him do anytime in jail meanwhile Bill Cosby had a million dollar bail and Chester the molester child pornography possessor got out paying 2,000 and I don’t hear nothing on the news daily about his ass and nothing else about that 7th heaven guy who admitted to being a Chester and nothing about allllll the other white actors who have been caught they living life and chillin nobody is reporting on them all the time now hard some stuff that Carmelo and all the others need to speak on because they even did mike vic like that they not talking about how they ass are victims of racial injustice tho

  • LordeAmbler

    He just don’t make sense. He’s all over the place with this comment. Freddie gray also didn’t get shot. They broke his spine.
