Video: Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Grover Compare Things

A while back, we got a peek at Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire's visit to Sesame Street. Now, we can watch the full performance, which airs tomorrow.


A quick breakdown of what we saw:

- compare [cum-PEAR] (v.): to figure out if things are the same. Or if they're different.

- One thing that is the same among Grover, Carmelo, and Amar'e is that they are all wearing basketball warm-ups.

- One thing that is different is that Carmelo and Amar'e are both nearly 7 feet tall, while Grover stands about three feet high and is a puppet.

- Another thing that is different is that Carmelo and Amar'e can both hit mid-range jumpers, (although field goal percentages suggest that it took a couple takes to get that shot) while Grover can do little more than hit Carmelo in the shoulder with a mid-range jumper, probably because his form is dogshit.

- Another thing that is different is that Carmelo and Amar'e can both hit routine lay-ups, while Grover has, with only a short run-up, a vertical of about 140 inches and can dunk his entire body through the rim head-first.

Other comparisons not mentioned in the bit:

- Carmelo and Amar'e both use contractions, while Grover does not and is a puppet.

- Carmelo and Amar'e are eared, while Grover is an earless puppet.

- Carmelo and Amar'e are African-American, while Grover is Cerulean-American.

- Carmelo and Grover have had their conditioning called into question, while Amar'e stays in peak physical condition.

- Amar'e and Grover have visited Israel and immersed themselves in Jewish culture, while Carmelo has not.

Cum pear.
