New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony and Olympic teammate Kevin Durant were the guests of honor at an extravagant party in Houston.
Carmelo Anthony is the leader of Team USA Basketball at the Summer Olympics, going for his record third gold medal. Kevin Durant will be counted as the go-to scorer. But before these two stars embark on their Olympic journey, they partied at a Houston mansion.

According to TMZ.com, Melo and Durant were gifted a couple incredibly expensive watches. Melo received a Big Bang Unico Titanium Bracelet worth $17k and Durant a Classic Fusion Titanium King Gold worth $10k.
Despite the relative ease in which Team USA has run through their exhibition contests, Anthony and Durant will have tremendous pressure on them when the real thing starts.
It’s good for the two stars to have some fun before dealing with the realities of their impending challenge.
The Olympics start on Saturday, August 6, and the US is the heavy favorite to win another gold medal.
