Basketball player, businessman, philanthropist and an inspiration to all his fans – no words are sufficient enough to truly describe how exceptional Carmelo Anthony is.

Let’s take a look and learn more about the legendary basketball player, Carmelo Anthony:

“Since arriving in the NBA, Melo 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.  Drafted third overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, Anthony has surely made a name for himself in the league. As he showed the world during his championship season at Syracuse University, Melo continues to prove to his fans, teammates and coaches that he is a hard worker, a leader and a competitor.  The Olympics proved to be the perfect display of his passion, maturity and excellence for the sport—and winning the Gold Medal in both the 2008 and 2012 games has been the ultimate token of redemption, success and global recognition for the NBA All-Star and three-time Olympian.

In July 2008, Anthony was honored as Basketball Player of the Year at the First Annual Univision Premios Deportes, an awards show celebrating the best Hispanic athletes. Melo proudly accepted the award in appreciation of his Puerto Rican father, Carmelo Sr., who passed away when Melo was just two years old.

Last year, he created Melo7 Tech Partners to help invest in and develop tech start-ups, the first of which is the Silicon Valley smart kitchen company, The Orange Chef. He has also helped develop Be Everyware, a leading provider of mobile technology for small businesses. In 2013, Melo partnered with Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson to create SMS Audio, a premier audio headphone and accessories brand. Melo is known to have the latest gadgets and avidly keeps up with his over 10 million social media followers.

Melo also has excelled off the court through his philanthropic efforts. He established The Carmelo Anthony Foundation (CAF) in 2005 as the vehicle for which he and his family would give back to the community through a variety of outreach programs and donations. In 2006, The Giving Back Fund, the premier philanthropic resource for the sports and entertainment communities, ranked Carmelo in their top ten of the “Giving Back 30” report surrounding celebrity philanthropists in America, the only basketball player on the list.  Anthony currently resides in New York City, with his wife, LaLa Vazques Anthony, and their son, Kiyan. ” (source: press release).

Congratulations to Carmelo Anthony on another one of his sensational projects with the ever so amazing, Nickelodeon!

Whether you are making a touchdown or a goal, shooting some hoops or kicking a soccer ball, Nickelodeon is highlighting the best in sports moments at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports 2015! Of course, with such a magnificent event comes a magnificent host. Nickelodeon just announced today that Seattle Seahawks’ Super Bowl quarter back, Russell Wilson will be hosting the event.

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports 2015 will take place on July 16th, 2015 at 8:00 PM at the UCLA Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles! According to the press release, “The superstar quarterback takes the hosting baton from first-year master of ceremonies Michael Strahan, who will continue to serve as executive producer, as the best athletes and top celebrities from around the world come together in a one-of-a-kind celebration of kids’ love of sports.”

Calling all sports fans from all over the world! Here is YOUR chance for your voice to be heard! You can cast your votes soon on unique categories for the Kids’ Choice Sports 2015 and see your favorite sport star take home a coveted Nickelodeon orange mohawked blimp trophy. The one and only, Mr. Russell Wilson stated, ““I am thrilled that Nickelodeon has asked me to host Kids’ Choice Sports. What an honor to be the king of slime for one crazy night!  I had so much fun at the show last summer that I can’t wait to get back. What kid doesn’t want to get slimed? Count me in on that. I’m just a big kid at heart, so let the fun begin. I promise you, we’re going to have great fun” (source: press release).

Also mentioned in the press release, “Last year’s inaugural Kids’ Choice Sports certainly set the bar high. Worldwide superstar David Beckham was presented with the first Kids’ Choice Sports’ Legend Award, and celebrated by being showered in golden slime with his kids; Marshawn Lynch went into “Beast Mode,” running through a gauntlet and diving into a pool of slime; superstars Dwyane Wade, Tim Howard, Serena Williams, Kevin Durant, Gabby Douglas, Victor Cruz, Carmelo Anthony, each took home a KCS trophy; and in an epic halftime show, Florida Georgia Line performed, and then the Pauley Pavilion roof nearly blew off when 15-year-old Ricardo Jacobo Jr. from Los Angeles sank a half-court shot live, winning a $50,000 grand prize.

Russell Wilson is expanding his repertoire as he takes on hosting duties for Kids’ Choice Sports, though he is already making history: he has won more games in his first three seasons than any QB in the history of the league and he is first quarterback to start two Super Bowls in his first three seasons. Wilson also became the third youngest quarterback in NFL history to win the Super Bowl. Named to the NFC Pro Bowl, Pepsi Max NFL Rookie of the Year, and Sports Illustrated Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, Wilson tied Peyton Manning’s 1998 record for most touchdown passes by a rookie (26) and became the first rookie in NFL history to lead his team to an undefeated home record. In 2013, Wilson led the Seahawks to its first ever Super Bowl victory and led the Seahawks to their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance in 2014.”

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports 2015 is bringing some of the greatest sports stars and celebrities under one roof and let’s not forget – the slime, slime and slime! Last year, David Beckham and his kids were slimed in gold – who will it be this year? You just have to tune in on July 16th to find out!
