Play For NY.
I love being from New York. Soon as I got into Basketball one of the things I would do was search for players who were from here and made it to the NBA. Players like Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Sebastian Telfair, Kenny Smith and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are just a few of the tons of players who have graced an NBA hardwood and are from New York. Enter the present time and you have Carmelo Anthony who some consider is the favorite to get the MVP this season. Born in Red Hook, Brooklyn he is the only player who reps the area and is damn proud of it. Here is the first of three webisodes on #PlayForNY which Features cameos by Nas and Bernard King. Presenting: "Playing for the City that Made Me".
