Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American former professional basketball player. He played 19 seasons in the National Basketball Association and was named an NBA All-Star ten times and an All-NBA Team member six times. In 2006, Anthony was named co-captain (along with James and Wade) of Team USA at the 2006 FIBA World Championship. The team won the bronze medal. On August 23, 2006, Anthony set the U.S. scoring record in a game with 35 points against Italy in the said FIBA tournament.

Anthony also played in the 2016 Olympic Games, his fourth straight stint in the Olympics, which was a record for a US male basketball player, breaking the old record of having played in three Olympiads he shared with James and Robinson. Team USA won the gold medal when they beat Serbia, 96–66, in the championship game , with Anthony becoming the first US men’s basketball player to win three gold medals.  In the gold medal game against Serbia, Anthony collared seven rebounds to finish with 125 total rebounds in US Olympic history, passing Robinson as Team USA’s all-time leader in most rebounds. In summary, Anthony caps his Olympic career as the first man to win three gold medals, a career leader in scoring, rebounding and games played, with 31, thereby becoming USA basketball’s most decorated Olympian. In recognition of his performances and accomplishments in the tournament, Anthony was named co-USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year (along with Kevin Durant) for the third time in his career. Anthony is the only player to appear on the cover of all three EA Sports basketball franchises (NCAA March Madness, NBA Live, and NBA Street). In January 2009, the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame selected Anthony as its Professional Athlete of the Year for 2008. He and wrestler Henry Cejudo, also a 2008 gold medalist, were chosen to be the special award headliners for the induction banquet held on April 14, 2009. In spring 2012, Anthony guest starred in several episodes of the Showtime series Nurse Jackie as a professional baseball player going through drug rehab

In April 2021, Anthony launched a production company called Creative 7, which was named after his New York Knicks jersey number 7, which he wore from 2011 to 2017.
