On Sunday, Kiyan Anthony, the son of NBA champion Carmelo and actress Lala Anthony, received a basketball scholarship from Syracuse University at just 15 years old – showing how the teen is poised to be a basketball sensation. Currently, Anthony attends Christ the King High School in New York, where he leads the team as a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, set to graduate in 2025.
If he accepts the offer, he’ll follow in his father’s footsteps, as it’s the same school his dad led to the national championship during the 2002-2003 season.
A proud mother, Anthony took to her Instagram page to celebrate the news.
Anthony wrote, “Proudest mom on the planet! Your hard work and dedication is paying off.
