Carmelo Anthony, a recently retired NBA legend, continues to be deeply connected to the world of basketball.
Serving as one of the three Global Ambassadors for this year’s FIBA World Cup, the ten-time NBA All-Star remains a prominent figure in the sport.
During a recent interview, Anthony shared his thoughts on his remarkable journey as a member of Team USA.
Anthony’s international basketball career is nothing short of illustrious. He boasts three Olympic Gold medals, earned in 2008, 2012, and 2016, along with a Bronze from the 2004 Athens Olympics.
Additionally, he clinched a World Cup Bronze in 2006, cementing his status as one of the most accomplished basketball players on the international stage.
Reflecting on his time with Team USA, Anthony expressed no regrets about his extensive involvement with the national team.
“I’ve been part of Team USA since ’02, starting with the U18 team in Venezuela and culminating in Rio in ’16,” he stated. “So you see so much, so many things going on, so many experiences, so many teammates. But to win, it’s like, it’s worth it.
“I feel like I’ve been in Team USA longer than anybody in USA history. But it was worth it. The wins were worth it, the losses were worth it, and the experience was worth it. So I don’t regret none of it.”
