MANHATTAN - Carmelo Anthony is set to make his Knicks debut at Madison Square Garden tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks, and fans say they can't wait.

New York City was abuzz with excitement today, with Knicks fans sporting blue-and-orange jerseys featuring Anthony's new number "7."

The famed Carnegie Deli in Midtown Manhattan also honored the former Nugget by creating a towering sandwich called "Melo," packed with pastrami, corned beef, salami, and even some bacon.

"Why bacon?" says Carnegie owner Sandy Levine. "Because he's going to bring home the bacon."
