For a large portion of his NBA career, his ability to score the basketball made him one of the most feared and lucrative players in the league. His 28,289 career points rank him seventh on the all-time scoring list.

Prior to playing in the NBA with the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers, and Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony memorably guided Syracuse to its first national men’s basketball championship as a freshman.

Anthony remarked in his retirement video, “I recall the days when I had nothing, only a ball on the court and hope of something bigger. “But basketball was my outlet, my motivation was strong, and I was encouraged along the way by my communities, the places I proudly represented, and the fans.

Carmelo Anthony revived his career with the Portland Trail Blazers.

“I will always be indebted to such individuals and places because they: Michael Anthony.

This is a difficult farewell to the NBA, but the time has come for me to say goodbye to the pitch where I established my name and the sport that gave me meaning and pride. What the future has in store for me excites me.

Anthony started his basketball career with the Nuggets and soon established himself.

among the best players in the league.

He led Denver to its first Western Conference Finals trip since 1985 in 2009, where they were defeated by the Los Angeles Lakers, the eventual champions.

He was traded to the New York Knicks for the 2010–11 season, although during his tenure at Madison Square Garden, he never once made it past the first round of the Playoffs.

With a 62-point effort in the Garden over the Charlotte Bobcats in January 2014, Anthony set both a career best and a Knicks franchise record.

He was moved to the Rockets in 2018 after first going to the Thunder in 2017, where he played for a short while before being barred from the club.

He signed a contract with the Trail Blazers in November 2019, more than a year after his last NBA game, and had something of a comeback, going on to play a significant part in the team’s making the playoffs while the NBA bubble was in place.

Anthony started a winemaking business during his tenure in the NBA and aspires to leave a lasting legacy that extends beyond the basketball floor.

But he was lonesome when he first began to enjoy alcohol.

Regarding his early years in the NBA, he said to CNN Sport in 2022 that “there was no wine in the NBA.” “I had been on a voyage since [2005], without even realising it was a wine adventure.

“I was drinking wine, going to a restaurant, sitting at the bar, and asking for a glass of wine with [teammates] just looking at me like, ‘Man, what is he doing?'”

Most guys would laugh and warn Anthony that it wasn’t a good habit, Anthony recounted.

During road trips to Sacramento, California, where he would attend wine clubs selling varietals from the surrounding Napa Valley and other regions of the world, he started to comprehend the worth and quality of wines.

Anthony’s enthusiasm for wine increased when he was transferred from the Nuggets to the Knicks in 2011.

It just introduced me to a whole new world of wine enthusiasts, various wines, discussions, and palates. And after that, I was certain that this was the genre I wanted to work in.

Anthony said that the league’s other players gradually began to appreciate Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Beaujolais.
