Carmelo Anthony is featured in a new documentary series entitled “Playing for the City That Made Me,” launched by the Jordan brand that sponsors him earlier this week. It’s a three-parter, hoping to show Anthony’s New York roots, and the passion he had playing the game from a very early age.

This first episode entitled “Claiming Red Hook” focuses on Anthony’s beginnings growing up in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and features Knicks legend Bernard King and rapper Nas talking about the excitement and expectations that come with playing for New York’s storied NBA franchise.

    Really Melo? You all about NY now huh man? Totally forgot about West Baltimore.

      Yes, because doing a YouTube series about the other city that’s been his home for significant portions of his life and is currently the one whose city he’s playing professional basketball must mean he’s completely forgotten about his roots in West Baltimore.

      Damn, how quick he forgets about TC Pride.

    Through his first few seasons in the league, all Melo seemed to be able to do was score and snatch a few rebounds. He consistently displayed a bad attitude and his willingness to build himself through strength and conditioning was spotty.

    He has since grown wiser with age, and he is also noticeably chiseled and moving around like an animal. After having scorched the Olympics, this guy seemed to have some sort of revelation along the lines of: I’m one of the best on the planet, Its time to take over in the NBA….like an MVP.

      You are true on a lot but where is his Defense? He can score, that’s a fact and he fits Mike Woodson’s system better that most expected but before he can be donned MVP he has to step it up on defense.

    I always thought he was from Battle Creek Michigan.

    You know. The city where they make Honey Nut Cheerios.
