Fifteen years ago, the entire nation was introduced to one Carmelo Anthony. As a freshman, Melo led the Syracuse Orange to its lone National Championship in the tournament-era. Drafted no. 3 overall in 2003, Melo upon his entry into the league inked a deal with Jordan Brand and has seen a decade-plus long run of signature releases and PEs. With Melo’s signature line all but finished in terms of new silhouettes…Jordan Brand honors one of its longest tenure members with an Air Jordan 9 Retro inspired by his Most Outstanding Player nod during the 2003 Final Four.
Releasing April 27th on SNKRS, Melo takes the time to admire and reflect on his accomplishments as Melo returns to the postseason.
