Since returning to the NBA, Carmelo Anthony has been able to more appropriately put a cap on a storybook career. This summer, the Portland Trail Blazers forward plans to tell a more literal story with the announcement of his new memoir, “Where Tomorrows Aren’t Promised,” set to release on Sept. 14, 2021.
This book isn’t about basketball…— Carmelo Anthony (@carmeloanthony) April 28, 2021
It’s about life, and growing up in the places WHERE TOMORROWS AREN’T PROMISED. Today, I’m proud to announce my memoir, coming to you on September 14th. pic.twitter.com/PP4P4vugQa
As Anthony details in the video, this book will be less about Anthony the electric scorer and future Hall of Famer and more about overcoming his the dangerous upbringing in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the pressures that come with that environment, the grief of losing loved ones, the love and support that molded him, and his mental fortitude for said situations.
The book will be co-authored by D. Watkins. For more information, NBC Sports Northwest’s Lindsey Wisniewski offers a few anecdotes from the book, as well as information on how to pre-order it ahead of the September release date.
