Anthony recently announced his retirement from the NBA after playing 19 seasons in the league, so he has a lot of free time on his hands.
He has been utilizing this time by watching sports games.
As for his interaction with Stewie, Melo congratulated her for leading the Liberty to a win over the Mystics.
The Liberty wrapped up the series by winning 2-0 and advancing to the semifinals.
Stewart’s squad will face either the Sun or the Lynx in the next round of the playoffs.
Either way, it will be a great contest for fans.
As for the Liberty, it could be a great opportunity for them to bring home their first WNBA title in franchise history.
They have advanced to the postseason 18 times, but have never won the title once.
