Carmelo Anthony 'Game Of Thrones' Promo Has Knicks Player Sitting On The Iron Throne (VIDEO)

Apparently, Carmelo Anthony loves "Game of Thrones."

In HBO's latest promo for the show's third season (above), the New York Knicks forward sits on the Iron Throne and talks about victory, defeat and legacy.

"This is what it's all about," Anthony says in the new "Game of Thrones" promo. "The journey here is no easy one." The promo is interspersed with the athlete on the court and on the throne along with some non-spoilery snippets of what's to come.

"The war is underway. Who will prevail?" Anthony teases to "Game of Thrones" fans at the end of the video.

The basketball star did tweet the below image from the promo shoot in February, but no one -- sports sites, like Yardbarker and Yahoo! Sports, included -- seems to have been able to figure out how Anthony teaming up with "Game of Thrones" came about.

Nevertheless, enjoy!

"Game of Thrones" Season 3 premieres on Sunday, March 31 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
