The Vertical's NBA Free Agency Show:

Video: Team Carmelo Anthony takes on itself

This advertisement showed up on The Basketball Jones last night, and I'm not sure if it's the most distasteful ad I've ever seen, or the greatest piece of filmmaking since Dino De Laurentiis finished gluing all the model spaceships together on the remake of "Flash Gordon." Either way, very engaging.

It's Carmelo Anthony(notes) playing against himself. Or, rather, it's five Carmelos against another five, with Carmelo calling the game and a couple of Carmelos coaching it.

Distasteful, possibly, because Anthony sort of wants to be left alone as a Nugget this year, dumping his teammates with a trade demand. Awesome because ... look, ten Carmelos!
