Carmelo Anthony

Immortalized

on Rye Bread

2/22/2011 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

You know you've arrived in New York City when the famous Carnegie Deli names a sandwich after you -- and Carmelo Anthony has landed in a HUGE way.

Carmelo's trade to the New York Knicks isn't even official yet, but Sandy Levine, owner of the Carnegie Deli, tells TMZ they are already launching the new Melo Sandwich and it is packed with everything you could ever want on a sandwich:

-- Pastrami
-- Corned Beef
-- Salami
-- Bacon
-- Tomato
-- Russian dressing
-- On rye bread

The sandwich will run you a cool $21.95 and that price was chosen for a reason -- if they sell around 3,000,000 of them ... it equals the $65 million contract Melo is likely to sign with the Knicks.

Antacid costs extra.

Heart attack!

Or you could just buy it and store it in your fridge and eat sandwiches for a year. But it is still a heart attack.

That's just ridiculous. Is it a joke? Who could possibly eat all that in one sitting. You certainly can't get your mouth around it as a sandwich. It's just stupid, wasteful America.And he would get $65 million for how many years?

That sandwich is a mistake to the heart....just like it's a mistake to make someone think they are worth that much because they can dribble a ball.
