July 3, 2014 – The Charlotte Hornets hosted Carmelo Anthony early Thursday morning during Melo’s big free agency trip. As part of their presentation, the Hornets displayed a banner on their stadium of Melo with long hair
Here’s the thing. That hair already belongs to someone else – Josh McRoberts.
A similar situation occurred yesterday in Houston. We believe this situation in Charlotte to be way worse.
We confirmed with McRoberts’ agent that his client was not made aware that the Hornets would be using his hair.
McRoberts confirmed via Twitter that he was very hurt by the move.

Sources have confirmed that the meeting did not go well as Carmelo never actually showed up. Please keep checking back with Ballerball for more details surrounding this situation.
