Carmelo Anthony

When you are a three-time Olympic medalist (two golds, one bronze) and the first US men’s basketball player to be selected to four Olympic teams, not much more need be said, right? Wrong. Can’t omit that this 9-time, NBA All-Star and half Boricua led Syracuse University to an NCAA championship as a freshman in 2002 and remains one of the NBA’s most prolific scorers since his arrival in 2003. Thrown in all-world teammates like Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, and Anthony will likely need to find room for a third gold medal come August 21. Yet, what everyone should be on the lookout for is to see if Anthony will use this world stage to further his message of social justice which he has taken up since the recent incidents of police brutality at home. Only time will tell.
