20 years ago, future NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony led Syracuse to the national championship at the end of the 2002-03 season.
On Sunday, Kiyan Anthony, the son of the 2003 NCAA Tournament’s most outstanding player, received an offer from Orange.

Younger Anthony is a 6-foot-5 winger in the Class of 2025 who attends Christ the King High School in New York. Videos on YouTube show him training with his father since his youth.
Now he has a chance to attend a school his father changed 20 years ago.
Following his magical run, Carmelo Anthony entered the NBA draft but always remained linked with Jim Boeheim and Syracuse. In 2014, he donated $3 million to establish the Carmelo K. Anthony Center, home to Syracuse’s men’s and women’s programs of practice. The school plans to honor the 2003 national title team on the 20th anniversary of their run this season.
Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade — all top five picks in the 2003 NBA draft — all have sons who are pursuing careers in basketball. Zaire Wade played in the G League last season after ending his high school career. Bronny James is ranked 34th in ESPN’s Class of 2023. Now Kiyan Anthony could follow his father to Syracuse.
