Of all the storylines surrounding the New York Knicks this year, this is perhaps the least important but the most curious.
Superstar Carmelo Anthony, who inked a five-year, $124 million contract with the Knicks during the summer, has been sporting a new hat practically every week.

After Sunday's loss to the Toronto Raptors, Anthony sported another hat, which has been called a "Grandma Church Hat":

Twitter users, of course, had a lot to say about this:

Maybe, just maybe, this is a brilliant ploy from Anthony to distract from his team's on-court woes. In coach Derek Fisher's first year in charge, the Knicks are off to a 5-21 start.
