Carmelo Anthony, a basketball superstar who grew up in Baltimore, appears to have joined in the city’s protests.
Photos posted to Twitter by German media correspondent Richard Walker Thursday afternoon appear to show the New York Knicks player participating in a protest march in the city. In the photos, Anthony casually strolls down the street alongside other protesters, who hold signs reading “Justice for Freddie Gray!” “End Police Terror!” “#OneBaltimore” and “#BlackLivesMatter.”

Yes, we know Melo is on the Knicks.
On Monday, Anthony posted a deeply moving message on Instagram, in which he implored protesters to “build our city up not tear it down.”
Though the 30-year-old was born in Brooklyn, he moved to Baltimore at the age of 8 and grew up there.
