Watch: Little Kid Runs on the Court to Hug Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony

During Monday night’s Knicks-Pelicans game, a young fan ran on the court and hugged Knicks star forward Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony handled it well, giving the kid a nice pat on the head.

The kid then casually ran back to the stands, seemingly without getting in any backlash.

“I was shocked. I didn’t really know who was it until I actually looked over and saw that it was a kid.” Anthony told ESPN. “Definitely a security issue, though, for sure.”
