Since arriving in the NBA, Carmelo Anthony has not only been one of the top scorers in the league, he has also diversified himself as a player, a family man, a businessman and a philanthropist.

With this new venture, Melo will continue to offer and provide for the Baltimore inner city/underprivileged youth with scholarships to attend the training facility.

Carmelo is looking forward to the partnership with D1: “It’s an honor to be able to help give back to the communities of Baltimore. I’m excited for young athletes to have the opportunity to get active and work on their athletic skills. I'm looking forward to my partnership with D1."
