At last Saturday’s Syracuse vs. Georgetown finale at the Carrier Dome, the Orange honored former standout Carmelo Anthony for leading the school to its only NCAA National Championship in 2003. Anthony’s jersey was retired at halftime, and Melo gave the fans a rousing speech about his time at the university.
SU’s players also took part in the celebration, wearing Anthony’s new “Jordan Melo M9″ basketball shoes. Of course, the Syracuse version was bright orange.
According to sneakernews.com, the new version of the kicks may soon be available to the general public. It looks like a must-have for Orange fans.

Carmelo Anthony's wife, La La, recently discussed the infamous Honey Nut Cheerios incident that allegedly occurred between her husband and Kevin Garnett.
Lala Anthony is promoting the latest season of her VH1 reality show, Lala’s Full Court Life. Of course people still want to know if it’s true that Celtics Kevin Garnett told Lala’s husband, Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, that she tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios during a match up a couple of weeks ago. Lala reiterated that simply isn’t true.

Anthony scored 30 points, Raymond Felton added 23, J.R. Smith chipped in with 13 points and 12 rebounds, and some strong defense allowed the Knicks to beat the Wizards 96-88 Friday night.
After weeks of debate, we still have no idea what Celtics forward Kevin Garnett said to Carmelo Anthony to get him so irate during that January 7 contest.
Anthony was beyond upset, and tried to confront Garnett outside the Celtics team bus. What we do know today though, is that Garnett did not says Anthony’s wife tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.

Stephen Curry didn’t feel like missing any shots last night, and usually when a great shooter like him decides to do that, the opposition is in some serious trouble.
