While LeBron James won’t be playing for the New York Knicks in the immediate future, he was in the Big Apple this weekend on behalf of a colleague.

The special occasion was the marriage of Denver Nuggets player Carmelo Anthony and actress La La Vazquez at Cipriani 42nd on Saturday, The Daily News reported.

Besides James, the 300 guests at the wedding included Kim Kardashian, Spike Lee, Ludacris and Serena Williams.

People magazine described Vazquez as wearing a Vera Wang gown. She and Anthony have a son, Kiyan, who served as a ring bearer. The newly-married pair were engaged in December 2004,

"I'm excited for my friend," singer Kelly Rowland told The Daily News. "It's Melo's big day. I'm so happy for him."

Attention was also focused on LeBron James, who didn’t acknowledge the reporters trying to ask him questions as he entered Cipriani, according to the newspaper. James recently signed with the Miami Heat instead of the Knicks.

But celebrity Knicks fan Spike Lee is already thinking ahead about the next superstar to possibly play for his team. “We want Carmelo to come to New York,” he said, as quoted by the News.
