To most, Puerto Rico is currently an island in economic decline. But to Carmelo Anthony it's a place of family, opportunity and a growing sports culture. With both seasons around the corner, we spent a few days training with a group of Knicks (including rookies Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant) and seeing the stadium that will house Melo's Puerto Rico FC NASL team. We took a trip to La Perla, one of PR's most notorious hoods, to hang out with reggaeton legend Tempo, fresh out of prison after a 12 year bid.
