The Jordan Brand's "The City That Made Me" campaign with Carmelo Anthony kicks off with a look back at his New York City roots and the Red Hook neighborhood where he learned to play the game he loves. 

Already two episodes in, the in-depth web documentary by the Jordan Brand takes us back to Carmelo's roots, talking to everyone from close family and friends, to knicks legend Bernard King and NYC native Nas. The ones who know Melo best share what it was like for the Knicks star growing up and how his surroundings molded him to become the person he is today. Melo also shares what its like to not only play for the Knicks, but also represent New York City and the Red Hook Neighborhood where he grew up.

Enjoy both episodes below, and look for the next installment in the Jordan Brand's "The City That Made Me" web documentary with Carmelo Anthony to drop soon.
