When Hispanic Business Magazine named Carmelo Anthony as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics, he wasn't the only one who was shocked. So were a ton of his fans who never even knew the superstar forward was half Puerto Rican! Anthony was honored and flattered to be on the list, especially since most people don’t recognize his Latino heritage. Although the two time NBA All Star was born and raised in the United States, he bears a tattoo of the Puerto Rican flag as a reminder of his fathers heritage.
