With Carmelo Anthony finally hanging his jersey and sneakers to walk away from the game of professional basketball, an overwhelming tribute and appreciation were showered to one of the game’s greatest via social media.

His contemporaries including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul have expressed their love to Anthony, while the new generation also didn’t miss the chance to show love for the future Hall of Famer.

The Denver Nuggets, where Anthony had his humble beginnings, greeted the star forward for a well-written career, with the New York Knicks also paying their honor. 

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks had a hilarious one to present their flowers to him.

Anthony, a 10-time All-Star and a member of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team, announced his retirement on Monday following a 19-year run in the NBA. He also amassed multiple All-NBA selections, a scoring title in the 2012-23 season, and three Olympic gold medals representing the United States.
