Carmelo Anthony is a Hawks legend.

Atlanta is undefeated with him. He never missed a single shot as a Hawk. His No. 15 Hawks jersey is highly sought after.

But Atlanta is just giving his No. 15 to some journeyman

Hawks release:

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club has signed guard/forward Vince Carter, it was announced today.
He will wear No. 15.

This is the most disrespectful thing since the Thunder gave Kevin Durant’s No. 35 to P.J. Dozier.
