The NBA saw another legend retire this past offseason when Carmelo Anthony officially announced he was walking away from the game of basketball.
Anthony built a legendary career with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks, though he later revitalized his career with teams like the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers.
The former number-two overall pick from the 2003 NBA Draft may not have won that elusive championship, but he’ll still go down in league history as one of the greatest scorers to ever come through the league.
Anthony remains massively popular amongst fans to this day, though all eyes are now on his son Kiyan who is rising up the ranks in high school.
While he isn’t the same prospect as his father was, Kiyan’s got some intriguing tools and has already received several offers from colleges.
However, he recently visited his father’s alma mater of Syracuse and the two took a photo in the school’s jerseys via NBACentral.

Syracuse has expressed interest in bringing in Kiyan and it would be a great story to see him follow in Carmelo’s footsteps.
Carmelo led the Orange to their only NCAA championship in 2003, a memorable tournament run where he was named the NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player.
Kiyan isn’t nearly the same scorer that his father was, but he’s got good size and length for the point guard position and has a natural feel for the game.
So far, Kiyan has yet to commit to a program as he’s got multiple offers to sift through though fans are surely hoping he ends up at Syracuse.NEXT: Steve Kerr Updates Draymond Green's Status Ahead Of Season Opener
