Player Bio

Carmelo Kyam Anthony, son of Carmelo Iriarte and Mary Anthony, was born in 1984 in Brooklyn. Anthony spent the first three seasons of his high school career at Towson Catholic High School in the suburbs of Baltimore. He then transferred to Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, where he squared off against good friend Lebron James in one of the most talked about high school games in history - which Anthony's Oak Hill won 72-66. He captured a National Championship at Syracuse, averaging 22.2 points and 10 rebounds per game and was named the NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player. Anthony has represented the United States at the last four Olympic tournaments - winning three gold medals - and is the nation's all-time leader in scoring and games played. The Carmelo Anthony Foundation, which bears his namesake, strives to "positively impact the lives of those living in under-served communities through 3 key focus areas - education, recreation & community outreach". Anthony has funded school projects in Baltimore and fundraised for hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and clean water efforts in Flint, Michigan.
