Melo had a few cameos on the most recent episode Saturday Night Live: one as a female shot put champion named Carmela St. Nix and another as a singing space cop in Laser Cats, the Musical. Neither performance makes the case that Melo should quit his day job, but they do go to show that his New York ambitions were about more than basketball. We now know they involve Elton John, Tom Hanks and awkward jokes about KY Jelly.
