New Zealand welcomes one of the most iconic basketball players of our time – the one and only Carmelo Anthony, affectionately known as "Melo," for his debut speaking events.

Affectionately called “Melo”, this basketball legend was selected third overall in the 2003 NBA draft, and since then, has achieved significant success in his basketball career. Carmelo Anthony is a 10x NBA All-Star, and in 2021 was named in the NBA 75th Anniversary team, solidifying him as one of the greatest players in the NBA’s storied history.

Melo's accolades extend beyond the NBA courts, having clinched gold for Team USA in the Olympics not once, but three times (2008, 2012, 2016). He stands as the all-time leader in points, rebounds, and total games played for the US Olympic team.

Renowned for his scoring prowess, Melo will share insights into his illustrious career, his experiences playing alongside other legends, and much more on April 16th in the vibrant city of Auckland.

Don't miss the chance to witness basketball greatness unfold before your eyes!
