Call this one “Misidentified Black Olympian.” Yep, the Philadelphia Daily News published the following correction today:
“A photo caption in Saturday’s paper accompanying a story on the Olympic Games’ Opening Day ceremonies misidentified a member of the U.S. men’s basketball team. Standing next to Kobe Bryant was teammate Carmelo Anthony, not Allen Iverson.”
Allen Iverson ain’t even on this Olympic team!
I couldn’t find the original Daily News photograph. But I pulled one off the Web, just so you know what Carmelo Anthony looks like.
