As you all probably know already, Michelle Anthony’s brother is the 26 year old NBA player from Brooklyn, New York. He became a great basketball player ever since he was in High School in Baltimore where he and his mother moved when Michelle was 18 years old and her little, famous brother was 8. They were being raised by her mother Mary (African American) after her father Carmelo Sr. (who was from Puerto Rico) lost his battle to cancer when she was 12 years old. Her brother became a noticeable player at Syracuse University and the Denver Nuggets couldn’t let such talent just go, so in 2009 he became their newest player.
Michelle has three other siblings besides her famous Nuggets baby brother, Daphne is her half sister, Wilford and Robert are her other brothers. When her mother used to work as a housekeeper Michelle and her sister and big brothers looked after their little bro.
