Carnegie Deli Introduces Enormous Carmelo Anthony Sandwich

NEW YORK (WFAN) -- Hungry, Knicks fans?

NBA foodies can wash down their elation while watching Carmelo Anthony's MSG debut with the Melo Sandwich, a mixed-meat concoction cooked up by the famous Carnegie Deli.

According to TMZ, Carnegie's has already launched the sandwich. But like Carmelo, it comes with a price.

$21.95, to be exact.

The towering delight is NBA sized, indeed. The Melo is overflowing with bacon, salami, corned beef, pastrami, tomato and russian dressing. And what better bread to layer the sandwich filling between than a New York City staple -- hulking slices of rye bread.

There's a secret to the pricing, too. According to Sandy Levine, owner of the deli, approximately 3 million Melo sandwiches sold will equal Anthony's $65 million extension with New York.

And if you don't like russian dressing?

Just pass the "Melo Yellow."
