Here’s TMZ reporting on some off-court fun:

Carmelo Anthony might start his own hat line

Carmelo Anthony could be the next John B. Stetson … because the NBA superstar tells TMZ Sports he’s gunning to start his very own HAT LINE … and it’s gonna be awesome.

Anthony is a huge fan of fancy headgear … from fedoras to berets and even baseball hats — and most recently rocked a top hat to the Met Gala in NYC.

So, when we heard he was going to be starting his own line — we had to ask about it … and yesterday in New York, the big man confirmed the wheels are definitely in motion.
