Carmelo to return to the Dome

The Carrier Dome will be home to an exhibition game between the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers in October.

According to a article, this fall, Carmelo Anthony will be returning to the friendly, memorable confines of the Carrier Dome. This time, however, he’ll be suited up as a New York Knick, as Anthony’s squad will face the Philadelphia 76ers in a preseason matchup on Mon., Oct. 22.

The game will be a homecoming of sorts for Anthony who led Syracuse to a National Championship in 2003 and has since had the practice facility named after him.

Both squads made the playoffs last season and have added fresh faces this year to make a deeper run. The Knicks added veterans Marcus Camby and Kurt Thomas while the Sixers now feature Andrew Bynum.

Tickets are not yet being sold.

This isn’t the first time the NBA has been welcomed to Syracuse for a preseason game. In 2010, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies played in the Carrier Dome, as Jonny Flynn and Wesley Johnson returned to their college playground.
