Anthony grew up in a tough area on the West side of Charlotte, N.C., and his mom, Angela, had high hopes for him. She took jobs in the motor vehicles office, a beauty parlor, a cleaning service and driving a school bus to afford the tuition so he could go to a higher level, attend private high school at Charlotte Latin, and play in AAU tournaments.
Anthony played college basketball at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
“No way was I ever thinking NBA. She was a mom supporting what I wanted to do, keeping me off the streets and keeping me busy. It was, ‘I’ll support him so I don’t lose him to the streets.’ – Anthony Morrow
