Not sure if anyone else saw this story on the Mothership about Kobe's custom piano. If you didn't, it's worth a look, if nothing else than suggested instruments for other NBA stars. Here's the one for Melo - it's fantastic. And sad.
Carmelo Symphony, a whole string orchestra with Carmelo Anthony as first chair violin but all the other instruments are played by incompetent children and he has to run around moving their bows and turning the pages of their sheet music for them.
