Carmelo Anthony retires from the NBA as the number nine top scorer in league history after an outstanding 19-year career! The ten-time NBA all-star spent a large portion of his career with the Denver Nuggets and the New York Knicks. Carmelo made a name for himself as a high school athlete while growing up in Baltimore. He attended Syracuse University and led the team to the championship as a freshman. He was a first-round draft pick for the Denver Nuggets. Melo ends his career as one of the 75 greatest players in NBA history. He played in several Olympic games for Team USA.

The NBA star announced his retirement in a video message Monday, stating, “I remember the days when I had nothing, just a ball on the court and a dream with something more, but basketball was my outlet. "My purpose was strong. My communities, the cities I represented with pride and the fans that supported me along the way." “I am forever grateful for those people and places because they made me Carmelo Anthony." “But now the time has come for me to say goodbye to the court where I made my name, to the game that gave me purpose and pride.”

We salute you, Melo! Job well done!
