There was the requisite hue and cry when the New York Knicks traded for Carmelo Anthony in 2011, with a sizable contingent of Knickerbocker fans complaining the team had given up too much for the prolific scorer with maybe a passing interest in playing defense. Others applauded the go-for-broke strategy, arguing that one franchise player was well worth giving up four role players. For his part, Melo, a New York native from Red Hook, Brooklyn, was just happy to be home. A new video from Jordan Brand, entitled “The City That Made Me,” centers around the connection, with Melo explaining what it means to play for the Knicks, as well as the people of New York. Check out the video below — the first of a three-part Web documentary series — and look for a quick shot of the Melo 9, which releases tomorrow.
