Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device! In Carmelo Anthony: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Most Versatile Scorers, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's star, Carmelo Anthony. Carmelo Anthony has played in the limelight since being drafted third overall in the 2003 NBA Draft behind LeBron James and Darko Milicic. Melo quickly entered the ranks amongst the most versatile scorers in the NBA due to his ability to score from practically anywhere on the court. While he has yet to capture an elusive NBA Championship, Carmelo Anthony has been a spectacle to watch having played alongside other NBA stars like Allen Iverson, Amar’e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood High School Years College Years at Syracuse Carmelo's NBA Career Getting Drafted: The Infamous 2003 Draft Class Rookie Season All-Star Status End of the Anthony/Iverson Combo, Enter Anthony/Billups Trade to Knicks Scoring Champion Season Enter Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher, Anchor of the Triangle Enter the Zinger Team USA Carmelo’s Personal Life Carmelo Anthony’s Impact on Basketball and Beyond Anthony’s Legacy An excerpt from the book: There are few sports leagues today as grueling as the NBA. “Nothing will work unless you do.” These wise words were uttered by the young and immensely gifted Carmelo Anthony, who was not always an outstanding player. He had the will but he had to grow into the skill. As a youngster, he was crazy about basketball, but the small forward had to work hard to perfect his game. Today, he is just beginning to fulfill his potential as a genuine leader and is carving out his legacy in the NBA. Since his start as a standout high school player, Anthony has not been a stranger to tenacity and hard work, and he has evolved from a rough stone into a multi-faceted gem. True basketball fanatics have something positive and negative to say about Anthony and his impact on basketball. Some view him as a selfish ball-hog who spends too much time show-boating. They may even go on to say that Melo is too caught up with putting up numbers instead of trying to help his team win. On the other hand, others hail him as a sensational scoring machine, desperate to win a ring. He may even be the most complete scorer in the game today and that accolade alone is enough to rack up some wins. Regardless of his motives, Anthony is truly shaping up as a diamond in the rough. Like a billboard in Times Square, all his strengths and weaknesses have already been put on display for all to see. After more than a decade in the league, he has developed a game that isn’t likely to see any major overhauls between now and retirement. Even so, as with any precious gem, he still needs to be polished. Defensively, he can be dull and often lacking in effort. Critics are quick to accuse him of losing focus and not connecting enough with his teammates to fully execute defensive plays.

    I love inspirational tales, and Melo's rise up from the drug-infested streets into the realm of mega-million superstardom shows that anything is possible if you believe that it is. Follow his journey, his struggles, even being cut from his high school team. This boy had a vision, a dream from which he would not be turned, and Geoffrey's brings it to life. If you want it badly enough, if you work for it every waking moment, and live it in every thought, only then you can follow in Melo's footstep I love inspirational tales, and Melo's rise up from the drug-infested streets into the realm of mega-million superstardom shows that anything is possible if you believe that it is. Follow his journey, his struggles, even being cut from his high school team. This boy had a vision, a dream from which he would not be turned, and Geoffrey's brings it to life. If you want it badly enough, if you work for it every waking moment, and live it in every thought, only then you can follow in Melo's footsteps.From the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks, and even to the Olympic games, Carmelo "Melo" Anthony has been among the shining stars of basketball, and this biography of his struggles to get there lets you walk side-by-side with him all the way, through the highlights, the fouls, the broken bones, and the sucker punches. Rich with statistics, scores, accomplishments, titles, and a look behind the scenes, experience his high points, and his low points, in this detailed play-by-play of Carmelo Anthony's rise to basketball fame. Melo's world was the basketball court and he owned every square inch of it, but you don't have to be a fan of basketball to enjoy this book. Anyone with a dream can appreciate what it takes to get there, and to stay there.

    Interesting read Interesting Read but doesn't go into depth, mostly stats driven rather than an inspiring story of Melo's life. Could go into a lot more details in some sections.
