In Sunday's NYT, La La Anthony, Carmelo's ambitious wife, was given a prominent feature in the SundayStyles section. The headline, "The First Lady of the N.B.A," spoke to her aspirations to be in the spotlight with her husband, now with the New York Knicks.
While the story was about La La, I thought it was interesting that it only made mention that Melo was born in Brooklyn, NY. True, the basketball player started life there, but he spent his formative years in Baltimore, starting at age eight until his senior year in high school. There was no mention of that.
I can see why those years on the mean streets of Baltimore and his basketball days at low-key, now defunct Towson Catholic High School might not fit into the profile of a publicity-seeking wife.
I guess I'm just paying attention. I went to Towson Catholic at one time, too.
