Carmelo Anthony is the most storied men’s basketball player in Olympic history.

His accolades include being the only American men’s basketball player to play in four Olympic Games, being the only men’s basketball player to win three Olympic gold medals, and being Team USA‘s all-time leading Olympic scorer.

To honor his legendary international career, his sponsor Jordan Brand posted on social media:

The post reads:

“Gold medals don’t bring parades to New York, They don’t take it easy on 32-year-old knees. Or land that second max contract. They don’t silence the critics. Or put your face on a plaque in Springfield. But some things you do, you don’t do for you.

Carmelo Anthony emotionally announced after the Rio gold-medal game that he will retire from Olympic competition, but his international legacy may never be matched.
