Part one of this Jordan Brand profile documentary talks to several people close to Carmelo Anthony, as well as former New York natives who played for the Knicks.
Last year, Carmelo Anthony returned to his hometown when he signed with the New York Knicks. Anthony grew up in the Red Hook Projects of New York before moving to Baltimore and then going to college in Syracuse, New York. He played his early NBA years in Denver, but now is back home.
To help prep the release of all new Melo M9 sneakers this year, Jordan Brand decided to create this documentary investigating where Carmelo is from and what it means for a kid from New York City to be playing for New York's team. The Jordan Brand profile includes commentary from former Knick and New York native Benard King.
