Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo “Melo” Anthony is a NBA superstar who plays for the New York Knicks. During his freshman year of college, the ball player won the NCAA Championship at Syracuse University in 2003. He entered the NBA Draft, taking his talent to the Denver Nuggets from 2003 to 2011, when he was traded to the Knicks. The fashionable athlete has represented Team USA at four Olympic Games, earning one bronze (2004) and three gold (2008, 2012, and 2016) medals. Anthony is half African-American and half Puerto Rican. He was born on May 29, 1984 in Brooklyn, NY and raised by his mom in Baltimore. His dad died when he was only two years old. Anthony has one son, Kiyan (born March 2007), with La La Anthony. The couple, together over a decade and married since July 2010, split in April 2017.
