Carmelo Anthony

Do Your Homework!!!

Stay in school, kids ... because if you do well, Carmelo Anthony will give you free Knicks tickets!!! At least that's what he did in Baltimore this week.

Melo and teammate Iman Shumpert dropped by the Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center in MD to spend some time with the kids in the program, and Melo rewarded the 15 Students of the Month with free Knicks tickets to Thursday's game in Baltimore (against the Wizards).

Anthony gave each student 2 tickets ... handing out 30 total ... but he didn't forget about the non-Students of the Month. We're told he handed out t-shirts to everyone. And they all had a blast.

Talk about a real winner -- and not just because the Knicks trounced the Wizards 98-89.

Very cool thing you did. Don't know you but props for caring about the kids. They need people like you. Its not a huge thing for celebrities to do that but means the world to the kids and just doing things like that can leave a lasting impression that can help them in the future.
Kudos to you Carmelo Anthony !!!

People call me a troll and say I say nothing good . Well when tmz post something good I do say good things. I think this is great and they should do more stories about people giving back and doing good instead of focusing on the negative all the time.
They post negative they get negative, They post about good people doing good things I'll support them 100% and praise them as well.
Im just honest and unfiltered love me or hate me.

and they say mcdonald's is immoral for recruiting the minds of children for marketing purposes, for aggressively producing future customer bases? wow, the nba seems to have mastered the 'good feels' on this one here. at least with mcdonalds the exchange is a dollar for a cheeseburger, and you end up with something in your stomach. this here, you end up paying a days worth of pay or more, and leave with 'an experience' in an overcrowded, over stimulated sports center, all orchestrated to pull even more money out of you. merchandising, unity sports feeling, belonging, etc. this is some crass form of very insidious brainwash if you ask me (with the assumption that these kids will have 'sufficient funds' when they grow up...). but i am not an expert.

Yeah, trouncing the Wizards doesn't make you a 'real winner'. It makes you conscious and ambulatory.

Good for him. And by the way, winning by 9 isn't getting trounced.

When I was kid we were never bribed to do our homework. The only thing we were told is if you don't stay in school and do your homework you're going to end up flipping burgers or washing dishes/cars for the rest of your life. Now those that listen went on to graduate some sort of college and the rest you can catch them in prison or working in a fast food joint.
