A few thoughts/notes on the former Knicks Star Carmelo AnthonyWorld Health Organization He retired earlier this week after 19 seasons in the NBA.:
Every Knick Fans have their own Thoughts on Anthony’s legacy in New York. I have shared a few of mine over here. Regardless of what you think of Anthony’s performance in seven-plus seasons as a Knick, one fact remains indisputable: Anthony has made a remarkable impact on hundreds of New Yorkers through his charitable work.
Boston Globe study found that Carmelo Anthony The Foundation was one of the most successful and well-run philanthropic groups associated with a professional athlete. The article claims that most of the money raised by the Anthony Foundation comes from Anthony himself. So there is little profit and most of the money raised goes directly to the community.
The local community Anthony used it a lot when he lived in New York. As it was Christmas day, Thank you, First week of schoolor the After the stormAnthony’s Foundation has helped people in the metro area.
Those close to him say Antonym was the main thing Local basketball courts And boxing gyms in the city.
“The local sports scene wasn’t too big to make itself known and grow people.” Stuart Goldfarb, He founded a venture capital company with AnthonyHe says. “It’s unbelievable to me that he feels comfortable going to a regular gym in the community and working out or working with young boxers.”
Goldfarb said the results on the court did not affect Anthony’s approach in the community.

We all talk about Anthony Knick’s legacy — the wins, the losses, the performances — but he’s made an incredible impact on the court.
Will number 7 retire?
Speaking of debates, there was a deep debate Anthony’s number should be retired. I don’t know if it will stand in front or not. What I do know: Before Anthony’s announcement, there was strong support from some people in Madison Square Garden to release the number. No decision has been made yet. I guess the final decision will be made by the team manager. James Dolan.
Anthony Knick has been to the qualifiers three times and made it past the first round once. He had some outstanding regular seasons for the club, leading the Knicks to the postseason. But if the number is retired, shouldn’t the Knicks be considered as players? Allen Houston And John StarkWho were the key players on regular winning teams that reached the NBA Finals? I put it Charles Oakley Within that group, however, the lawsuit against Dolan and MSG has put an end to any discussion of dropping the number.
about what Bernard King? If Anthony’s number is retired, should King receive the same honor?
Here is a hypothesis: If Julius Randle A couple more All-Star teams and All-NBA teams make them like the Knicks and the team wins a few more playoff series in that span, wouldn’t Randle have a legitimate case for jersey retirement?
About five times all-star Carl Brown? Six-time All-Star Richie Guerin? A seven-time star Harry Gallatin?
The Knicks currently have nine players/coaches honored in MSG Ratters. outside Dick McGuire And Patrick EwingAll players/coaches have won at least one title with the Knicks.
If the franchise retires Anthony’s number, it at least opens up the conversation for several other Knicks.
