Carmelo Anthony visited the Smart Araneta Coliseum officially as the ambassador for the FIBA World Cup. The world championship is in August and he joined Spain's Pau Gasol and Argentina's Luis Scola in promoting the event which will be held in Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia.

According to Inquirier.net, Anthony shares, “It’s a full circle. I’ve been a part of FIBA basketball since the early 2000s and to come back full circle now and be the ambassador for the World Cup. This is definitely an honor, it’s a blessing. It’s been a long time coming. But for me is just about being able to build nations together.”

“Bring people together and bring countries together through one common theme, which is basketball. That’s why I love to build, with the kids and the next generation, but also globally, internationally getting a chance to really make an imprint and put an imprint. Put an imprint on a global diversity of basketball.”

He also shares how now he's glad to be sharing the game of basketball globally. “I’m glad we’re not competing no more. We’re actually on the same side. We’re on the same team now. We are representing the global game of basketball. So I don’t have to worry about going up against Pau and then thinking about him and the gold medal game... I don’t have to think about that now we can come together we could band together like brothers and really grow this game of basketball the way that it needs to be.” While on his trip to Manila, he caught the Gilas-Lebanon game at Philippine Arena to present the Naismith trophy.
