Anthony finished his career as a 10x all-star, 6x all-NBA player, 1x scoring champion, 1x NCAA champion, and 11th on the all-time scoring list.
A couple of his friends, as well as current Suns players Chris Paul and Kevin Durant, paid tribute to him by posting funny and awesome pictures of Anthony throughout the years.

Both players have been friends with Anthony for a long time, especially during their times on Team USA. Paul in particular has been friends with Anthony going back to when he first entered the league as them two along with LeBron James and former NBA legend Dwyane Wade.
Congratulations to Carmelo Anthony on a great NBA career and it’s only a matter of time before he’s in the Hall-of-Fame.
