And in a testament to confronting the racial fires burning across America, it had little to do with his on-court performance in the Olympics, where he returned for the fourth time as the unofficial captain of the gold-medal-winning Team USA. “Carmelo taught us all this summer what it means to use your position to influence the world,” said Olympic teammate Kyrie Irving. “He taught us that we need to stand up for what we believe in and that athletes need to get involved in the social issues that are affecting us all. I don’t think you can overstate the impact that Carmelo’s had on athletes in all sports.” “The world is full of problems, and Carmelo finally said, ‘I’ve got to do something,’” said Jerry Colangelo, the managing director of USA Basketball. “He showed other athletes that it’s good to be visible and it’s good to express your views. It just shows you how much he’s matured.”

They were in Puerto Rico, where more than half of the Knicks came to support the star’s seventh annual “A Very Melo Weekend” community event in his home country.

Rose said the Bulls never had an offseason bonding experience like that.
