Carmelo Anthony’s Best Kicks on Court

Today, Carmelo Anthony turns 35.

Over the course of his high school, college, Team USA and NBA career, Melo has racked up one of the most impressive Kicks on Court resumes we’ve ever seen.

Repping Jordan Brand as a prep at Oak Hill academy and rocking both the Jumpman and the Swoosh in his sole season at Syracuse, the #3 pick for the Nuggets in ’03 ended up being the biggest rookie signing Mike ever made.

Eventually becoming a signature star for Jordan Brand, Carmelo had many models to his name but perhaps more impressively a slew of PEs that only Ray Allen and few others can compete with.

On his birthday, we celebrate Melo and his best Kicks on Court. Enjoy.
