One thing that is dope about being an elite NBA player is having the potential to not only influence some one the basketball court, but to inspired others off the court. Melo took that approach as he recently visited Rikers Island to chop it up with some of the young inmates. While growing up he also had to deal with losing friends to prison systems due to their decisions making growing up. Theres not much Melo can do, but he can try to inspire these kids to do better & hopefully they took his word for it.
