Carmelo Anthony’s been a superstar athlete since he was in high school. Playing in televised games with then-high school, LeBron James, Melo’s always been in the public eye. Quite honestly, his name is pretty easy to rhyme with things so it’s not surprise to hear him name dropped numerous times. Add to the fact that he married MTV fixture, Lala, and tattooed the infamous “Warn-A-Brother” logo on his left shoulder, Melo’s been one of Hip-Hop’s favorite athletes for a long time.
