Sure, the NBA playoffs have had a lot of fascinating characters so far, from unlikely heroes to not-so-unlikely super-villains.

But have the NBA playoffs featured a shark hunter yet? Didn’t think so.

Fortunately for Carmelo Anthony, he doesn’t have anything as pesky as postseason games to interfere with his pursuit of a fairly deadly catch. And so he (or someone) posted to his Instagram account footage of a shark on a line, being pulled toward a fishing boat. (Warning: bad language.)

We don’t actually see Melo in that footage, but another Instagram post from 2013 at least demonstrates that he (along with wife LaLa) knows a thing or two about fishing.
