40. Carmelo Anthony
How could the baller known for his "bully-ball" style of play and support of the “Stop Snitchin’” campaign make it onto the softest athletes of all time list? Before he made his MVP campaign this season, Melo was known as the very talented but somewhat pudgy All-Star who could light up the scoreboard when he felt like it but didn’t like playing defense. His softest moment by far is the Mardy Collins snuff and run incident.
Kevin Garnett pushed Melo to the edge by reportedly telling him what his wife, Lala Anthony, tastes like. Melo handled it by confronting Garnett after the game—with half of the NYPD in between them the whole time, of course. There was also the Twitter beef with Kat Stacks where Melo quickly used the “my account got hacked” excuse. #foh #wedontbelieveyou
