Praise From High Places For Carmelo Anthony's Milestone

  • Date:
    Nov 4, 2014

Check out some of the people and organizations USA Basketball is following with this week’s USA Basketball Social Roundup:

There were plenty of shout-outs on social media for USA Men’s National Team member Carmelo Anthony when he reached this milestone Sunday night, including this one from Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. 


  USA Men’s National Team member Kenneth Faried embraces his “Manimal” nickname, so it’s no surprise he enjoyed this image that his Denver Nuggets posted just in time for Halloween last week.



Klay Thompson was a major weapon from long range during USA Basketball’s gold medal run at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, but here he takes it straight to the hoop in the Golden State Warriors’ win Sunday night over the Portland Trail Blazers.

--- After capturing gold and being named MVP at the 2014 FIBA World Championship in October, Maya Moore is back in China looking for a third-straight title there.


  Pokey Chatman has been head coach of the WNBA’s Chicago Sky since 2011. Before that, she helped win gold for USA Basketball – first as a player at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in 1988 and then as an assistant coach for the USA Women’s World University Games Team in 2005.


  The Hoops For Troops program is near and dear to USA Basketball, so it’s always great to see other organizations creating great events to help honor the men and women who defend our country.


  Last week we highlighted the #1More4Lauren story. Lauren Hill, diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, made her college basketball debut Sunday night for Mount St. Joseph University. Anyone who couldn’t be there in person sent well wishes through social media. And at halftime, Hill received the U.S. Basketball Writers Association's Pat Summitt Most Courageous Award, which was presented by Summitt.


  True to his word on Sunday, Tyus Battle did indeed trim his list of potential colleges to 11 on Monday. Battle, who won gold this past summer with the USA Basketball Men’s U17 World Championship Team in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is a junior at Gill St. Bernard’s School in New Jersey. As of now, the 11 colleges still on his list for 2016 are: UConn, Duke, Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Syracuse, Villanova and Virginia
