New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony is looking to expand his expertise from basketball star to "digital athlete" by getting into the tech game. Last July, the NBA player founded a tech investment fund called Melo7 Tech Partners and has already invested in several technology start-ups. "It's a tech boom right now, and everybody's trying to figure out a way to get into the tech game," Anthony said in an interview with CNBC's "Closing Bell." "I'm also just trying to have fun with this right now and be smart about it at the same time." [...] For those who say Anthony's involvement is a sign of a bubble, Anthony scoffed. "It's not a game. It's not a joke," he said. "This is something I'm really intrigued by. I'm really involved in this business. I'm really involved in the day-to-day process in what it takes to vet these deals out."
