Nike Introduces The Jordan Melo M11 (Pics)

Carmelo Anthony, Jordan Melo M11

For those of us getting a bit long in the tooth — guilty as charged — it seems practically an eternity ago that the Jordan Brand shocked the sneaker world by signing a precocious teenager named Carmelo Anthony to be a cornerstone and an ambassador.

Though Anthony was fresh off leading Syracuse to a National Title as a freshman, it nonetheless seemed a bit of a leap of faith, much as it was for Nike to simultaneously sign LeBron James out of high school. This, after all, was no fledgling brand, and with Michael Jordan wrapping up a career that many consider the greatest of all time, this seemed to equate to a passing of the torch. Was Carmelo up to the task? Would anyone be?

We’ve never seen this happen in more than 25 years of watching the NBA. That’s not to say it hasn’t happened before, we’ve just never seen it if it has.
