Air Jordan 9 “Mop Melo” Celebrates Carmelo Anthony’s 2003 Championship Run With Syracuse
On this day fifteen years ago, Carmelo Anthony led Syracuse to the first and only National Title, completing an incredible tournament run that showcased his superstar-level talent to the world. After a sleepless night and a ridiculous stat-line of 20 points, 10 boards, and 7 assists against Kansas, Carmelo Anthony was hoisting the NCAA Title trophy over his head. Jordan Brand is commemorating his contribution to college hoops lore with the Air Jordan 9 “Mop Melo”; the colorway and details are inspired by the collegiate trophy, while the silhouette calls out his favorite Air Jordan of all-time. A release date has yet to be announced.
