Carmelo Anthony is Headed to Rio

By Angelika Menendez - Jul 24 2016

According to Sporting News on July 21, Jim Boheim made a phone call to Carmelo Anthony that convinced him to become a part of the NBA team for the Rio Olympics. This will make it his fourth Olympic medal if he wins.

Boheim was Anthony’s coach in college when he played for the Syracuse basketball team. He is going to be a part of a star roster, which includes Kevin Durant and other big named players.

Boheim made the call, hoping to get Anthony to join the team and to his luck, he succeeded.

“I called him to see what his thought process was.” -Boheim

This is going to be a change for Anthony, as he is currently playing for the Knicks. Rather than relax on the off season, he is going to be focusing on winning his fourth medal for Team USA this summer in the Rio Olympics.
